If another member has me on ignore, will I still be able to see that member's posts?

Does the ignore feature just block the one using it from seeing the posts of the one ignored, or does it work both ways?

I ask this because I am unable to view another member's posts, but I have no members on ignore.

The only way I can explain it so far is if the ignore feature causes a two way block.

Thanks in advance for any assistance given with this question.

The ignore feature only works one-way.

I would guess that the member you can't see is on Global Ignore, in which case no one can see the posts.

I would go for that, except the next poster to the thread that caught my attention on this issue agreed with the poster I couldn't see, citing the post by the name of the poster whose posts I cannot see. So other members can see this member's posts, but I can't.

I believe so. They just would not be able to see your posts.

To my knowledge, it only works one way. Any member we ignore, we are no longer able to see their posts. They can still read ours, but we can not read theirs.

They are probably on Global Ignore for a set period of time.

It is possible that the other member had read the post before he/she was placed on GI, which would explain it.

Other than that, I'm not sure. Maybe you could ask a staff member.

Ah, chissler, thank you. That does give me a possible explanation.

You are sharp and insightful.
