How can I choose who can contact me?

To block a member and stop them contacting you, you can blacklist them in one of the following ways:

  • Select the “Block this Profile” link at the bottom of their profile page.
  • Click the blacklist icon circled in red in the IM window.

Once blacklisted, the member will no longer be able to contact you by email or IM, and you can no longer write to them either. Rest assured, they will only be notified of your decision if they try to send you a message in future.

You can also choose which people can contact you by activating the “Contact Filter”, available to any member who has added the “Select” upgrade to their account. Using this feature, only members who meet your criteria can message you. Others will need to send you contact requests, which you can then accept or reject.

Move your mouse over your username at the top-right of any website page, where you’ll see the link for the “Contact Filter”.

To block a member and stop them contacting you, click on the three-dot icon at the top-right of their profile page. Then, select “Block this profile”, and you’ll see a brief confirmation message.

Rest assured, they will only be notified of your decision if they try to send you a message in future.
