Post Reply The option to change our username
Posted 11/27/15
Is it just me or would this be a nice idea to be able to change our usernames without going through the hassle of making a new account?

I like your user name.

Settings > Inbox preferences.
That's the closest thing you get.

I also heard you can mess with the coding or something if you're that fancy. Not sure.

Private messages. I already use it to block somebody who try to threaten me.

But outside of it.Forum or comment section. There are people I just no rather see.

Eh, I don't know. That seems like it'd have a similar problem that Tumblr has. It'd create an environment where one tailors the content seen to their own specific tastes. Discussions and debates would become places that exist solely for affirming your preexisting beliefs and you'd be locked in a perpetual safe zone where you're rarely challenged in a way not to your liking.

Plus, wouldn't that create a lot of confusion? People would see your posts and respond to them only for you not to see their response. Others would then see their response and post a counterargument and you'd see them talking to members who are, for all intents and purposes, nonexistent.

Seems like a hassle to me. And all that for a payoff that you could get simply by ignoring posts.

Anyway, I'd enjoy having a way to change my username. I'm not interested in doing so at the moment, but it'd be nice to have that option and it would benefit other members of the community.

That no the problem I have with it. Is the I get a message after message. From undesirable source. So every time I check, instead of seeing people I talk too or a conversation. This person keep hitting the reply button. Make my inbox a mess to cleanup.

Ah, so you didn't mean making their posts/comments invisible. My mistake. I misunderstood.

I don't think that exists within CR's general functionality, but the closest options I know of:
1) Use beardfist's Chrome extension, it includes a block option that will hide those posts from you, separate from the PM block that is built in.
2) Simply ignore that user's posts. If they aren't breaking the rules, there's not much we can do about them posting, whether in reply to you or in general. There are folks I do this to all the time on other sites. You can turn off notifications in general if you find them more frustrating than useful. I did, long ago.

If you are just trying to block PMs, and not posts, can't you do that here by (manually) typing their username in the block list?

/acct/?action=inbox

Or doesn't that work for some odd reason?
