This new feature is similar to the "Block Sender" option in some email clients. It allows you to filter out a member whose posts you do not care to view.You can access this feature from two places at all times.
The first place is at the bottom of the subject listings next to the preferences button.
Clicking this button will take you to the Ignore User page where you can manually enter the username(s) you wish to ignore.
To ignore a user, simply type his/her username in the textfield and click the "ignore this user" button.
You can do this for as many users as you like. Once a user is ignored they will appear at the top of the "Ingore User" page.
You can then use the "EDIT" button to change the spelling of ignored username(s) or you can un-ingore usernames by clicking the "DELETE" button.
The second way you can ignore users is while viewing a message.
Simply click the "IGNORE THIS USER" button and whoever posted the message you are viewing will be added to your Ignored Users list.
Community Feedback and Support
In hopes of providing a less confusing line of communication between BNETand the community, the ?Rants and Feedback? category will be eliminated. All posts offering suggestions on improving the site and/or complaints will finda home in the ?Naggers Top 10.?
Technical support will remain
ONLY technical issues will be addressed here. This is not the place forsuggestions. All posts not involving a direct technical issue will be moved or deleted.
With everything going on in our world, we felt like there might be enough negative karma out there.We have decided to remove the ability for a post to go into "Negative Karma" for the next few months.Actually, you can still NEG a posting down, but only down to zero. This gives the uppers and the downers an outlet without giving them a weapon. Let's give it a try and see how it does!
MEMBER OF THE WEEK RADIO
BowieNet has recently given our members of the week the opportunity to choose a playlist for the BowieRadio Channel 4 - Member Radio.The prospective member of the week is emailed the Wednesday before with the list of songs to choose from. Once you receive the list, simply follow the instructions included in the email and return the email to email@example.com.
MOW also has the option to design a customised skin for the Radio Player. All you have to do is select the file format from the list that best suits your skills.
Once you have downloaded and unpacked the .ZIP/SIT file you'll be on your way to creating your custom Member Radio Skin. When you are done simply re-pack the files with WinZip or Stuff It, and attach them to your email containing the playlist and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE - If you are emailed as a prospective member of the week and you do not reply to the email you will forefit your opportunity to create a custom playlist and skin. You will still be featured as MOW, but the last member to have submitted a playlist will continue to be featured on the MOW Radio.
We hope you enjoy the modifications. We will be announcing an UltraStar chat in the coming weeks where we can all chat about what's next for BowieNet.
