      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

This is great, IMO, if someone's posts just generally rub a poster the wrong way. Or if 2 posters just generally are at odds with each other and decide it's better if they just dont' see each others' posts! Also, if one poster is just, overall, turned off on another one and just wants to, say, "take a break" from that person for a while.

 

Granted, it may not  solve the problem if a poster feels they've been specifically attacked by another poster. Especially if they find the other poster's comments embarrassing and don't want anyone else to see them, either. In those cases, however, you (general) can still PM a moderator (preferably the lead mod, if any, of the group where the offense took place or an administrator. But if you'd just rather not see someone's posts or whatever, this option is terrific!

UPDATE: These directions have changed a bit since the community was upgraded. Here are the current instructions

1. Click on your username at the top-right of the page.

2. Click on Ignored Users

3. Key in the name of the user whose posts you wish to ignore.

4. A list of usernames will appear - click on the correct one. (If you choose the wrong one by error, you can remove it, by hitting the x that shows up next to the name. Then key in the correct name.)

5. A list of options will appear. Check off whatever applies.

6. Then click on Add User.
