    @Fosters  Hello,
    I started receiving this error yesterday.  There's a typo in the word Notifications in the first line.  I'm using 1.3.0

    Perhaps it's time to open source the code and throw it up on Github for others to help maintain going forward?

    ahc got a reaction from DeltaHF in Discord is killing our forum   
    I had this concern as well, and I rectified it by integrating Discord directly into my website using an app in the marketplace here.
    Members must have a registered and verified website account linked to their Discord.  This is the only way to receive an invite to the server which is randomly generated and unique to each member.  Anyone who attempts to join without an account, or without linking their Discord account on the website, is promptly kicked and a DM sent to them explaining why with a link to register to the website/link accounts. 
    I have assigned read-only channels that update with new content as it's posted on the website respectively.  The updates provide a title and/or a tiny glimpse to what was posted that when clicked brings my members back to my website to interact with said content.  This is something some members love because we don't have an application and unless they're on the website, they don't receive their notifications until they revisit the site or check their email spam.  Think of it as a hacky way of getting push notifications.
    Nothing in our Discord replaces anything on our website.  We make it very clear from the get that our server is a privilege, not a right, provided for our members to have casual conversation and post about things that aren't normally the topic of discussion in our community, which is art based, though we don't discourage talking about art if they want. We do not allow them to buy, sell, trade, etc. and even encourage them to self-promote their content from the website in multiple areas.
    My VIP members receive a special Discord role as well, which I have had some members tell me directly that they purchase a VIP subscription solely for the sake of vanity even if they don't really utilize other benefits.  Who doesn't like fancy colored usernames to stand out from the crowd.  😉
    This is 100% automated as well.  Discord is becoming a big part of a lot of people's lives no matter what type of community your roots are in, and I've learned from past mistakes that there's no point fighting change, you must adapt to it or be left behind.

    Oh I'm not suggesting that my examples should be blockers, but in providing them I'm trying to help the debate flow in a more productive direction - such as possible solutions to the examples I posted or confirming that completely different use cases could be applied.
    I for one would like a block feature, but my use case is one of privacy.  I don't care if content can be seen, but I would like the ability for users to block messages from, and disable access to view their profile for, specific individuals in a single button-click.

    I think the ignore feature needs a few more features to be useful.  Right now it really serves no purpose other than to make members angry/upset when they try to use it and find out it doesn't really serve a purpose.  Most sites give you the ability to actually block someone, preventing them from seeing your content or your account.  My members have been begging me for improvements to this feature or to implement a true blocking system, but it's odd to me that previous people who have requested this are never responded to, or are basically told just use the ignore feature as is and act like an adult about it.
    The internet if filled with millions of people of all ages, and just because someone is an adult doesn't mean they'll act like one.  I don't think it's unreasonable to provide a little more in terms of someone feeling more secure about their privacy.
    User A ignores User B, so all applicable content by User B is now hidden to User A, and User B is unable to send private messages to User A.  However, User B doesn't know they are being ignored by User A and has no restrictions given to them.  The ignore system works basically as if User A is the one being blocked from User B's content which seems backwards.  User B should be aware they are blocked and have the consequence of User A basically not existing to them in any capacity.
    My members are requesting these common blocking features:
    A blocked/ignored user cannot see the content of the blocker. A blocked/ignored user cannot view the account profile of the blocker. A blocked/ignored user cannot tag/mention the blocker in any content. If there is a plugin or app that already implements these improvements, please direct me to it.  If not, I can assure anyone who creates one will receive immediate downloads/sales.

    Instead of debating whether the 'ignore' function works properly, just provide feedback on what you want to be able to do. You do not need to give it a name, you simply need to state your use case(s).
    There may be problems with creating a true "block" feature for community software like IPS. If you check blocking capabilities on sites where it already exists (I'm specifically thinking about social media) it serves as more of a privacy tool. It prevents others from being able to see your profile content, send you messages or view your posts. That's fine in a system where your content is entirely your own and the only impact is one less viewer of your content, but in community software like IPS this could create problems:
    There will be apparent gaps in conversations to users that have been blocked, for example: Blocked Person 1: Does anybody know how to install this program? Person 2: Yes, you install it by double clicking on it. Person 1: But then I get a warning about it being suspicious. Person 2: That's OK, you just need to add it as an exception. Person 1: Thanks Unblocked Person 1: Does anybody know how to install this program? Person 2: Yes, you install it by double clicking on it. Person 1: But then I get a warning about it being suspicious. Person 2: That's OK, you just need to add it as an exception. Person 3: No, don't do that! It's actually infected and a new version needs to be uploaded! Delete it and run a virus scan. Person 1: Thank There will be useful topics that might not be seen: Blocked How to install this program. How to open the program. How to uninstall the program. Unblocked Warning: current version infected - uninstall it and run a virus scan. How to install this program. How to open the program. How to uninstall the program. These are of course just examples I can think of, but I imagine there'd be gaps all over the place.

    You can see the ignored member. Ignored member can see you. You can see their profile. They can see yours. You have your activity streams bumped dozens of time if the ignores member posts dozens of time.  So the only advantage is to “hide” the content in the topic but still shows in search and activity streams?
    It can be better. Believe.

    No personal offense to OP here, but usually people who get antsy or upset at simple deterrents are usually, in my experience, the people those deterrents exist for. 
    Seems a bit premature for you to accuse and make insinuating remarks without properly consulting the appropriate people for more information.  Adds insult to injury when you turn around and state you probably wouldn't need to use the service to begin with.  I find it best to leave opinions in a constructive manner without the dramatics.
    People who intend to abuse the system, like stated before, will either be discouraged or have to fork over the fee to make it worth the time of staff to cater to these types of "clients".  People who aren't abusing the system will likely be helped without any red tape.  This type of practice is very common and confidently exists in majority of companies today in some capacity.

    1. Could you add ability to choose which topics to use for Forum Posts? 
    2. Kn forum posts block, add support to show pictures, videos and others Editor buttons, e.g. Spoiler and Quotes... 
    3. For Forum Topics, add ability to select topics. Right now only can be selected by forums.

    Currently we can report only content items, but sometimes it would be useful to report a user, for example in cases when user account was made is only in order to leave links in it's profile and "About me" section, like this.
