Do you use the Friend/Foe Feature?

Post by mastermike707 »

Well, read the title.
I personally don't use it. I forgot if you can disable it. Can you?

I do. There's a couple of people who post consistenly useless, mean spirited or just agravating posts - the "Foe" option is great to automagically ignore all their posts! That said, I usually then click and read the ignored post - but it is great at reminding me to not react to the comments.

Was using it, but it removes some topics, there are some posters who occasionaly post good stuff as well as annoying agravating stuff, like myself! So I stopped using it, but I reckon the friend feature could be very popular!

I use it... for test purposes here as I only read 10% of this board... I see lots of use for this though.

I don't use it, and no you can't disable it completely, it is always in the profile, as far as I have seen

IMO - all of the zebra stuff is stupid.

Friends and foes is one af the few options in phpBB3 I truly hate (No, i wont use it :P).
It is the task of the moderators and admins to filter out the useless posters...

A use for it is to block those users you DON'T LIKE but don't do anything against the rules as foes can't send you PM's.
