It’s been a rough week. You got the server first for downing the newest and best raid boss, to the cheers of allies and jeers of your enemies. But it wasn’t without cost. In the heat of the moment, someone made a snide comment about your off-tank, and he exploded.
It caused all sorts of drama afterward that put a damper on the thrill of completely destroying the indestructible. Your off-tank is usually a good guy, but he’s angry and hurt about what was said… and is expressing it in the most passive-aggressive way possible.
A ridiculous forum signature.
You don’t want to remove him from the guild entirely – partially because he’s a friend but mostly because he’s just that good – but you can’t just let that signature sit there, either. You have to do something about it.
And so you, noble admin, go to the one place you know you can trust for this sort of thing: the Guild Launch admin panel.
From there, you go to the Permissions tab and click ‘Member Moderation’, because you remembered that the lively crew over at Guild Launch recently implemented a way to hide a single user’s forum signature and avatar.
You click the box next to their name and get ready to hide their signature. You even set up a short message to let them know what’s going on:
After that, you just click ‘Hide Sig’ and the Guild Launch system takes care of the rest! And once he comes back to his senses and removes it, you can come back and follow the same process to let him show signatures again.
And, just in case, remember that this feature can also be used to hide avatars – if your off-tank (or any other user) decides to try and get around it that way, you can hide their avatar on the same page!
This is a basic rundown of our member moderation functionality. Much like our Ask Slater Tuesday posts, if you have something you’d like to see, let me know! Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a tweet – I’m @GL_Slater on the Twitter.
