Is there anyway to add a block user/ignore posts feature to your forum?
I know it's your own code, so you must be able to customize?
I'm sure myself and a few others have a few people we would like to erase
out of our lives.
There is a disruptive force on this forum that needs to go away.
Upgrade to ARC Pro
Harnessing the power of ARC Pro, your robot can be more than just a simple automated machine.
It's hard to ignore their posts when they are babbling in every post of the forum. It
would be different if at minimum the comments made sense and related to the topic.
I tried to be nice to him but didnt work.
ALSO i do apologise to everyone on the problem that i did,nobody is perfect
ONLY WORST thing i cant stand is to be insulted,just because somebody sais something you didnt like or dont agree with it doesnt meen you have to get MAD and give the other person a insult and themn also say i dont care i hurt your feelings ,like in one post
Also RICH i told you again please do not send me any more emails ,i see in my spam you did AFTER I TOLD YOU NOT TOO.
Thats why i didnt put the email up for ALAN and TROY
Only here to build robots mostly
Does DJ want the good people to leave because of a few bad apples?
Ignoring the problem/posts is not going to resolve it.
Better to discuss rather than lose customers.
If you want to call it bickering that's your choice.
I visit this forum multiple times during the day. I'm here to learn and help others.
My ideas only here to help others.
Also discussing it makes it worse.
So problem WITH STOP at least with me ,
I still think latter on there will be others that will argue and they need to do the same .
JUST like this this post has nothing to do with making robots and thats what i am here for.
Maybe we need dedicated moderators to help keep people on track? We shouldn't but something needs to change.
@Robotmaker, I hope things change. I hope things get better. Have a look back at some of your posts and try to understand the reason the frustration levels have grown on the forum. It's not all you but a large part of your posts up to the last few days or so have been annoying as hell.
I look forward to a resolution. I believe you have a wealth of knowledge but you need to share it/communicate it in a better fashion.
BUT nobody will say anything to RICH because he is very good at coding and it make cause him to leave the forum,
THAT is not fair
It's no secret that there are heated discussions between myself and @robotmaker, it's no secret that he has frustrated me recently to a degree that quite frankly I am a little ashamed of, however I did all I could to keep that away from the community. My excuse, if I need one is that it is difficult helping others learn when there is someone there constantly pushing your buttons, complaining about not using an idea or complaining about using an idea they had.
From emails received over the past 3 weeks or so I am fully aware that it is not the bickering which is the problem. I am also aware that a disturbing number of people no longer post on the forums as they have told me so in the same emails. What @Lumpy expressed is absolutely correct. The community is already losing members and it isn't just due to any bickering.
All I will suggest is to ignore those who you don't wish to deal with. It is hard (I know it's hard!) but it really is the only way. We are a community, each of us has something to offer everyone else.
If your frustration becomes too much or if you have any concerns over what you are seeing in the forums surely it is best to voice them privately via the Contact Us page. We must remember that EZ-Robots is growing, the staff are very busy and things of this nature on the forums for all to see, including potential new members and new sales will not help them progress.
I am a very approachable person, if you have concerns over anything I post, or if you think my posts have stepped over a line I honestly welcome any emails informing me. It's plainly obvious that I am on here to help as much as I can but I do realise that sometimes I may get to a point that someone needs to stop me and say "hold on a minute". Some of you have been doing that, I thank you for it (you know who you are) and I've been able to pull away from many a topic which could easily have ended up like some of the others.
Now, can we get on with building some darn robots please? :).
I said the same thing ignore them like i am doing from now on.
BUT also RICH you need not to get mad at people who push you buttons by calling them names or bad insults.
NOT once do you ever see me get mad at anyone ,NEVER a reason to get mad at a person just because you think his idea may not be any good.
ALSO have you ever tested the design to say it doesnt work ,so how do you know it a bad idea.
HOW does anyone know we are losing customers i dont think there is a counter to say how many is on this forum
ONLY DJ can say if we are losing people and could be from other reasons also.
HOPE this post is ended SO we can build what i love the most ROBOTS i hope to have the largest collection ever of robots
My girlfriend says i am ROBOHOLIC and i need a cure fot it.
