    @soulJAHmon If you are running a windows computer there is the button for programs currently running (the hidden icons button) next to your batery/internet connection on the taskline. right click the discord and click quit discord.

    I literally can not, figure out how to block someone from Private Message or Direct message, or whatever. I clikc on there name, and NO profile comes up for me to block them... I can do it in a server chat, I can open there profile from server chat, but I can't open there profile from DM... And I dont want to scroll through the whole server chat trying to find there name so I can click on it and open there profile, in here It says I can select someone from DM, i cant unless I'm missing something here...

    Is there a way to make someone you have blocked completely invisible? I blocked someone on a server but whenever they post somthing I still see it post "blocked message" and I can just click on it and see what they said. I really would rather it just not say anything

    Not only that, but they can see what you've said anyway, and directly address you. This applications blocking feature is the worst I have ever seen.

    how do you delete messages?

    @SpaceMable - You can delete messages by clicking on the cog to the right side of the message and pressing "Delete Message" - It must be your message, or have the "manage messages" permission.

    I recently banned a member of my server for a quick timeout, and when I unbanned them again their profile is still banned even though there are no bans in the ban list. Is there a fix for this, or is the member doomed to be forever banned?

    I'd really like being able to disable the "X blocked messages" too. I don't mind the blocked user seeing my messages though.

    @Throjnx Server bans and blocking users are separate functions. Are you seeing a message blocked window or are they not able to re-join the server?

    Hey so I accidentally reported someone that I was having a PM with because I left the app open over night while I was asleep... Is there a way to nullify reports or undoing reports? Thanks!

    @Kenji701 Email us at [email protected] and we'll take care of it.

    @exavernus yes, they can still see your messages.

    Except that you can still see "blocked message" on your screen so this is basically useless. If you want to block someone, you don't want to see reminders that they said something.

    @damanique Totally understand- we're looking into making something where you won't see their message (or that it exists) at all.

    @Cilantrelle Want to add my voice to damanique and other users about still seeing the people you blocked. There is someone in a community I'm in who really hurt me who still insists on responding to everything I say. I really don't want to leave this community but I'm almost feeling forced to because of the lack of a proper block function. Hope you guys can find a way.

    @MerryMike Noted! Definitely not fun. Hopefully we can get the update out soon to accommodate you guys.

    Blocking should obviously filter anything you've blocked completely from the chat. I don't want to see a bunch of "x BLOCKED MESSAGES" all over the chat.

    @Duck of Death we do have plans to implement this in the future. Hang tight for updates there.

    How do you unblock someone that you don't share a server with and don't have any DMs saved?

    is there any way to report someone who's harassing or threatening you? So far all I'm seeing is block

    @PROJECT Wukong If you haven't already, send in a message to [email protected]!

    @Jorb @Duck of Death is spot on with how to unblock someone!

    it would be a great idea to give some more options for each blocked user, for example if one wants to see their messages hidden like they are now, not at all or still be able to see text messages on servers but block direct messages+disallow the blocked person to mention oneself (and maybe excluding admins of a server regarding the mention block, though that might cause some kind of issues), some more options in regards of that would be useful

    @Ulexos I definitely agree that those blocking options would be amazing to have! We'd really appreciate if you could help share and vote up the suggestions at feedback.discordapp.com to help make these features a reality in the future!

    What happens when I block someone? Can they see what I've written in mutual groups? If they DM'd me previously, will it prevent them from doing so again, or will they be sending messages and I just don't see them, making them think I'm just ignoring them? Will they see my online status? Important information.

    @Blindsided If you've blocked someone in a mutual server, while you will not see their messages, they can still see your messages and your online status in the server. For DMs specifically, if you've blocked a user and they attempt to message you, the message they attempted to send will not be delivered and they'll see an error message that says "Your message could not be delivered because you don't share a server with the recipient or you disabled direct messages on your shared server, recipient is only accepting direct messages from friends, or you were blocked by the recipient."
