Possible to block reactions from a forums user?

Recommended Posts

I almost never block anybody, in-world or in the forums (or Twitter, or anywhere else), but there's one particular forums poster whose "contributions" I find universally counterproductive. So I blocked them, but after checking all the boxes I still can't figure out how to hide their harassing "reactions" to posts, including my own posts. Am I doing something wrong, or do I need to resign myself to getting a little more annoyed each time I see their name?

 With the risk you can't read this because i might be blocked :)  as far i know the ignore function mainly acts as sort of fold postings by the blocked ones, you'll still see those between the others  but have the choice to read them or not.
Also the smile, sad and confuse likings always show.

Even the forum across the street does not (or cannot) hide the reaction buttons/who has reacted in what way. The most that can be done is hiding the notification.

Besides, you blocked the person for a reason. Consider the reactions the buzzing of a gnat and move on.

The way I figure it, the sarcastic smiles crowd derives some enjoyment from placing their reactions so in the end it's like a positive smile :D

All depends on how you look at it 🙃

If it makes you feel any better the person I suspect you're referring to hasn't actually posted on the forum since the end of 2018 - apparently reacting is all they can do. I don't know whether that is because of a system ban or a conscious attempt on their part to avoid repercussions, but you can rock the schadenfreude by thinking about how much they want to do more than react but can't.

I looked at our xenforo forum a bit back and we are unable to even block them.   I'm not sure it was ever thought of when forum software was being developed.

Nope you cant block reactions. Its not possible on these forums. All you can do is turn of notifications which mean you wont know if anyone reacts to your posts at all.  You cannot censor another persons reactions to your post, so you just have to deal with it.
