    Hi Mel, I'm fine thanks, hope you are too.

    As Paul says, it appears to be a bit of a lottery whether or not you get emails from WGT. Changing your email address used to be suggested as a cure, but that only seems to work for some.

    Sorry Mel, but I can't really help you on this one.  : (

    Hey Scott. Just a question if you know...

    Does the current version of the platform gives you the option to exclude from reading certain members' posts? Kinda like blocking their posts when you read a thread?

    Have 4-5 trolls in mind which i want to block.


    Thank you pal.

    Hi Yiannis, have a read through this post of mine. I wrote it some while ago so AdBlock/AdblockPlus may have changed their GUI's since then, but I think the filters should still work.

    If it doesn't work or make any sense, let me know and we can go through it step by step.

    Okay Yiannis, I'll have a look at uBlock Origin to see if it has a custom filter option.

    Looks like you're in luck Yiannis. The filters I created for AdBlock & AdblockPlus seem to work with uBlock Origin.

    If you click the uBlock Origin icon on your browsers toolbar, you should see three cogs to open the dashboard, click that.

    On the dashboard page, click the My Filters tab at the top.

    In the main window of the My Filters tab, paste in the filters that are in the post of mine that I linked to earlier.

    Where it has scotthope|anothername in the filter, remove that and put in the names of the users you want to block. Each username must be separated by a pipe character '|'. I don't know where that would be on a Greek keyboard, but on mine it is above the backslash, next to the left shift key. Capitalization when entering usernames into the filter doesn't matter.

    Once you've got the filters in place, click the apply changes button, and you're good to go.
