Hi,

 

I have a question regarding the Friends List, on the game side, not the Forum side.  What is the difference between unfriending someone and blocking them?

 

Thanks!

Koan asks a deep question...pun intended! :D

I think it's a great question, Koan. Hopefully someone knows the answer. :)

I think the difference is that with blocking, it keeps in your friend list, but he/she can't chat with you and the other way around. This could be useful for only a particular time (spamming for example), when you want to keep that person in your friendlist. Later on, you can unblock that person again, and chat. When unfriending, that player is not in your friendlist anymore, and you can't chat with him/her at all, only by means of the general rooms.

The block function is bugged. If you block someone you cannot unblock them later even if you unfriend them and re-add them.

I accidently blocked a friend and tried to add and remove him and borked it up.  Is there any way I can get some one removed from the block list.

What prompted my original question was that I could not see some of my friends on my list.  I deleted some, and then I could see some of those friends again.  I figured out the Friends List had a viewing limit.  When I went to add those friends back, it wouldn't let me.  Can that be fixed?

Send me a pm on this, Koan. Tell me the names of whom you are trying to add and I will put it to admins. Not promising anything but will try this route for you.

I reckon admin can't help. Your friend list has a limit, and when you are over that limit you can't see certain friends - same for everyone.

Great game, site is also wonderful. If you could please fix bug in blocking of friends that would be great. It is way to easy to hit this by mistake.
