Today I am closing Tracker/2009-04-05, having implemented a "blocking feature". Basically this allows members to disallow messages from other members.
To block someone, do the following:
- Visit the other member's profile
- At the bottom of the page, click on the button that says "Block this member".
- You will have to confirm that you indeed want to do this.
- You can unblock members the same way.
- To view the list of members that you have currently blocked, visit your preferences page.
Note that blocking is a three-edged sword: If you block someone, you too will be unable to contact him. Also, the Admin (me) can mandate blocks between members, and these cannot be unblocked normally. (This is how I plan to deal with my bickering kids. :)
To be honest I'm a little unhappy about this feature in the sense that I was hoping there wouldn't be a need for one. It seems that I was wrong, and blocking is necessary to prevent feuds from other websites from spilling over to AllFighters. Oh well.
On to better things: The next feature in the works is Tracker/2009-01-03 2. Basically this is an extension of the favorites list; in addition to marking other members as favorites, you will also be able to mark the people whom you have met and fought with. If both people involved mark the other, it becomes RealFactTM, and will show up on both their profiles.
Also, related to the ranking feature, I plan on creating a feature that I call Battle Reports. The idea is that you can share stories of your matches with the rest of us. The details are a little sketchy at the monent, which is why I would like to ask you all to add your comments.
In addition, I have fixed a bug that broke quick message deleting and blog voting on some PC's.
Thanks, and happy wrestling!
