Equivalent of adding an individual to a kill file?

Top right account icon -> Click on your own username -> Preferences -> Interface in the dropdown on the right -> Default home page

And remember to save the change (I forgot quite a few times)

Thank you, thank you! I never realized that clicking on my username was how I change settings. That’s a well hidden feature!

The Code of Conduct does say that people should respect others time and effort, so you could argue that excessive posting would fall under that. But as Paul said, if someone just has a lot of time to post and the posts aren’t rude then the best we can do is simply suggest/ask the person scale back their posting as they are probably getting ignored at this point.

Obviously when their posts cross the CoC line on their own, thoough, that’s a different matter (which has now occurred), and frequent posting doesn’t help their case.

One cool feature of Discourse that I just discovered is that when a single individual is ignored by 5 or more people the admins get a notification to that affect, thus notifying them that there might be an issue brewing.

I keep getting the feeling that Discourse is full of useful ideas like this, but that I’m somehow missing the goodness because I can’t quite grasp its basic model of presentation. If anyone has pointers to a “this is how I grokked Discourse” blog post or something, please bring them forward :slight_smile:

If you want to start a new topic to ask questions of folks then feel free to, Tim. I’m sure others would find the conversation useful. (And I would try to answer your question but it’s just vague enough for my brain to go “it’s just a forum/mailing list replacement” and not know how to approach clarifying how I approach it beyond expounding upon my workflow here).

A post was split to a new topic: What do people like about Discourse?
