Default Block Unblock - Ignore Unignore

IGNORE vs. REPORT ABUSE - what is the difference ?
When you click on a farmer's avatar, you have the choice to 'ignore' or to 'report abuse'. Ignore can be used any time. Report abuse is to be used for offensive language ONLY and not for other annoying behavior. If it is not offensive language (like cursing), then click 'ignore'.


Both functions will add that farmer to your blocked list.


The ignore button does not affect harvesting
The ignore button and the report abuse buttons do not affect harvesting. If you sent a hire request to a farmer, that gives them the ability to harvest at your farm. Clicking them and ignore does not affect that and they can still keep harvesting. In fact, they do not even know that they have been "ignored".


By mistake I blocked someone that was a friend.
To UNBLOCK someone, click Account in upper right corner of your FarmTown game screen. Then click Blocked Users and unblock the ones you want unblocked.

NOTE: If you block a player in the game, it will not affect what you see here on the forum. You will also need to block them here if that is your wish. If you block a forum member here, you will no longer see their posts here on the forum.


Report Abuse - Valid Complaints
1. You must click on their avatar and click 'report abuse'.
2. This will send in a report

IGNORING AND REPORTING IMPROVEMENTS:

- You can now Ignore or Report users from inside the Message window using the red icons on the bottom right.
- You can now Ignore or Report users from the Online Chat window using the red icons on the top left of the chat window, this will allow you to ignore or report users even after they have left the room.
- If a user have been reported enough times on the past few months he will be penalized by not been able to send offline messages or chat messages to others for a period of time, the more times a user have been reported the longer he will be banned.
- Reporting users for no reason will get the reporting user banned from the game.


*** Forum moderators have no control over what goes on ingame. Reporting the person here will not be helpful as there is nothing we can do. You must report the person ingame ***

I think that when your having problems with people harrassing you and you block them on Fascebook , then they should be blocked on Farm Town also . I know that FarmTown is a different company but they should work together when your having a problem

The only way to do it is to click on the person's avatar and click on report, they can't do anything with a name, anyone can change their name.

Unfortunately there are people like that. And the only way for Slashkey to do anything about them is for you to click on their avatar and select Report. When you do then Slashkey gets notified and they are blocked from contacting you. Never reply back to them as that gives them a way to continue contacting you. The avatar name can be easily changes=d and many people can have the same name. When you report them it sends their FB ID to Slashkey to be able to track exactly to the right person.
Sorry to hear this happened to you.

You can look at his message and on theat message will be a green dot when he is in FT. That way you may be able to go to his farm or catch him in the market and click on his avatar.

if the person changes their name, is it reflected on the message? i get a few (way too many) informal surveys about web cams that i hope never get to younger people but they always leave the marketplace before you can finish clicking on them. (i'm good at that btw, i've got sally from the bot place on ignore)
