TO BLOCK A PLAYER:

Note: If the x is not showing up:

1. Open up Main Menu and go to Messages and tap the "X" next to the comment of the player you want to block:

(And I wonder, could you block Stormie?) Not like anyone would need to.

That's what they said, but their reason was kind of weak. I'm happy that they did implement it.

You couldn't block Stormie because he doesn't post.

Hey everyone, we just added this into the newest version of Dragon Story! Be sure to download Dragon Story 1.9.4 (https://itunes.apple.com/app/id513474544?at=10l3QL&ct=forum) from the App Store!

Great feature - I would love to see the block and delete button further apart..or it to say " edit. Delete "... Instead " block ...delete " since 99.9% will be delete only so only 1 step needed to clear each message ..and if/when you ever use block , you would need to hit edit , then second tab for block to work it ...

WHEN WILL YOU GIVE US THE BLOCK FEATURE FOR ANDROID!!!???? Come on Team Lava! So unfair! I am going to have to uninstall again, I believed when it came out for ios it would come out for Android soon after and it has been a few updates now. What is the deal??!! Not cool at all to just blow off us Android users like that. I am VERY disappointed.

The block feature isn't approved for android i believe. I read this forum and it says it works for bakery story version 1.7.1 and i believe its for iphones. Because i looked at the version my bakery story is and it's version 1.5.5.9. It would be really great if team lava made the block feature applicable for android too.

embry777
03-19-15, 06:03 PM
I just read your post. I guess we do have to beg. I cannot block someone who is harassing me but they can block me and still continue to harass me all day on my bakery wall and its fustrating and childish. Ive emailed teamlava and no reply.

Block Feature needs an Update.

- Maybe have to Post a Reason for the Block (I've had Drama ppl Block me, simply because I am Friends with someone they don't like *rolls eyes*)
- Give a List of Members who have Blocked you, so you can Return the Favor.

How do I block a user from visiting my Dragon Story Island entirely? I have someone who is stalking me and my family on several social media sites and including DS. We don't want her to even be able to visit our walls.

She is blocked from writing on the wall (thanks for this tip!) but still visits daily. How can she be blocked from even visiting (like Twitter blocks people from following and seeing tweets; Facebook blocks people from finding you entirely; and IGram blocks them from seeing any and all posts). It's at the point of stalker-ish.

Thanks!

exactly my problem with Dragon Story; I've blocked someone on all social media. Although she can't write on my DS Wall, she continues to "visit" mine and my family's island and it's almost stalker-ish. How can we block someone entirely from even visiting?

Over a year ago and still no block button for androids plus there is no 1.7.5 version for R.S and B.S.

I have a player who on and off appears on my wall to make sarcastic comments, I do not know the player or why she does this.

The other day she sent an invite to me on my old account of R.S, I have never given her my id, unfortunately an ex nbr who kept my id has been giving it out.
Months ago I emailed storm8 requesting if I could change my id, never had a reply to it, I also reported the player, she was dealt with but in the email I received, it said for me to use the block feature...errr hello???

I am one of many android users who get these random players who suddenly appear just to disrupt our game play, we need the block feature so we can enjoy our game play in peace yet we're being overlooked or ignored to have the block feature implemented, it really is'nt fair to us all.

Oh, thanks for the screenshot! This is actually a known issue in the current version in Restaurant Story. If you tap the area on the far right of the inside box (see screenshot (http://i.imgur.com/OmdvKIw.png)), you will be able to remove them from the block list. The button is currently missing, but we're working on an update to fix this.

Hi!

I'm a kindle user and right now I have no option to block rude comments. Furthermore, kindle has no screenshot option so I cannot send you a ss of the comment to me. If you will tell me to provide the name of the rude visitor, that also willing work because his name is written in their own alphabet. The only way for me to show his name is taking a screenshot, again not possible for kindle.

Pls advice what I can do at the moment. Thank you.

You may not see a button to unblock, just tap to the right of their name to unblock.

One odd thing I have found is that when trying to post a birthday message to a neighbour's sister it told me I was blocked yet I'd never had any communication with that player before! A pity but there you go... How can you be blocked if you aren't a neighbour? That rather upsets the way we become friends in the first place.

I agree, it's not fair at all, they get more things to buy and the goals on the items to sell is blank to us androids but the iOS players can buy items to speed up their goals and it's not fair at all and it makes me want to quit playing all storm 8 games. I'll be uninstalling and never will I spend anymore money on storm8 games again.
