Chat Ignore

All posts, RSS Feed

RPGpad’s chat feature makes it possible for players to go on adventures together, with support for masks, an initiative tracker for Pathfinder campaigns, location-based rooms, and many other features intended to mesh well with chat-based roleplay.

Unfortunately, such a direct line of communication can also be over-whelming. And with larger campaigns, it might very well be that one or two players cannot stand each other, and get into a conflict every once in a while.

To help everyone out we have implemented an Ignore feature in the chat. This features does exactly what its name implies: it allows you to ignore a player in the chat. While you are ignoring them you will no longer see chat messages or rolls from that player—you will still be a recipient for those messages, so they will still show up in the archives should you want to read them back later, but you’ll not be shown them right now.

Ignored players are indicated as being ignored in both the player listing, and the rooms list. You can unignore a player via the same route to start seeing their messages again.

The Ignore feature is intended for temporarily ignoring another player. To that end it does not remember who you were ignoring when you close the chat, and it does not synchronize who you are ignoring between multiple chats you have openend. So if you have the chat open on your phone and your laptop, you can ignore someone on your phone while still seeing their messages on your laptop. This is intended.

And last but not least, while ignoring someone you will no longer see private messages, or notifications that there is an incoming private conversation with that player. If you already have an opened private conversation with that player RPGpad will notify you that you will not see anything they write—this is to make sure that there is no miscommunication due to accidentally not seeing someone’s replies.

As always, we have this week’s changelog ready for you. If you have any ideas, suggestions, or feedback, please let us know by opening a thread in the community forums!
