    Hi. If you want to ignore someone on PO, it probably means you don't want to hear (read?) them, like, at all. >.> But currently, people you've ignored can still come into your battles and talk, etc. This either means you have to:

    1. Stop battling - seems sortof messed up since this is a battle sim :\
    or
    2. Click "Ignore Spectators" - I personally like talk to alot of people that decide to spectate my matches, since they're my friends, and I'm sure others do too.

    I was just wondering if there was a way to stop posts from people you've ignored from showing up in battle like this :3

    (I know you can say just ignore them/whatever, it's not a personal problem of mine, I'm just saying there's probably someone who wants to just ignore another user.)

    I think this could be added. But for now you might want to try using client scripts as a temporary fix. (I don't know if they can do this, but it's worth a try)


    Update: Probably wont be fixed (by me anyway.) The relevant code is hard to change because it's sending an array of bytes to the battle window...

    I don't know much about how the messages are sent, but couldn't you check the completed message for [ignored user's name] + ":" before sending it, and have it not send if it returns true? :0 I'm pretty sure messages from others are not stoppable in client/battle scripts. I just really think if there's an ignore option at all it should work anywhere on the client. :p
