Q: I blocked a user on accident -- how can I fix this?

Don't worry, you're certainly not the first person to hit the wrong link; in fact this is probably caused by the "Block" link being displayed close to other functions such as Delete Comment (classic FAC skin) or the link to the user's own page (Zellers FAC skin).

Since a blocked user is by rule NOT notified of being blocked (until they try to comment on a blocked page), this can cause confusion.

In any case, your Blocklist is included on the same page that displays your Favorite artists and Fans.

To view your blocklist:
  • On your profile page, locate the "My Settings" panel on the upper-right.

  • Click on the "Blocklist..." link.


Your Blocklist is displayed only to you (and FAC site staff), and you can easily remove users from your blocklist from here.

We have a few improvements to the blocking system planned for the site's next upgrade, which includes a pop-up confirmation window to prevent accidental blocking and a more prominent link on your profile page to locate your blocklist with.
