What Blocking Does by StupidFae What Blocking Does by StupidFae
Admittedly I could have organized this better.

Blocking is mutual, I had her on my list for this.

Edit 2: Some information on rules in blocking. [link]

There are also rumors going around to the effect of

"So dA is banning those who respond to people who block, unblock, comment and then block. Yes, even though they've unblocked you, do not respond to their comments. They can report you for evading block, even though they unblocked you. So, to remedy this, block them back. If you find someone who has blocked you, then block them."

Since it was not addressed in the journal above, for now, it is just rumors. I would listen to that, just in case.


EDIT: "PLEASE NOTE: Using alternative accounts to contact people who have blocked you on another account is considered harassment and can result in all your deviantART accounts being suspended or permanently banned."
FAQ #96: Can I block people from my profile page?

I blocked someone, and they blocked me, but then we settled our differences and unblocked each other, but I still can't comment on her art and vice versa, and it's been a few days since we unblocked each other
Can someone help me? I want to know what's going on!

That happened to me too, except it was the other way around, and it should be, but I was blocked by someone for no reason once after being called a racial slur, but I think it'd be polite if I didn't mention their username.

okay. I was only asking for help on making animations. when I asked, she didn't reply, so I asked her again, but in another way, so it wouldn't be spamming. she still never replied. then, I come back to find out that she blocked me. man, I can never be friends with any of these users. they're traitors. >:(

That happens sometimes. Not everyone that claims to be someone's friend is really their friend. Most of my friends have stabbed me in the back in my past so I just move on. I don't trust many people anymore, but I might again.

So if you block someone, do they get a notification that you blocked them?

Kind of redundant if the blocker wants nothing to do with you in the first place, hence they blocked you.

If you block someone, does the linking they've done to you like Adrienne87 or :iconadrienne87: go away from anything they've done? Like in a journal, or comments?

Shouldn't let what other people say affect who you are, what you think.
You are you, people will have their opinions regardless.
Opinions are not facts.

Just keep being you, and keep being happy.

I was blocked by two people for very stupid reasons. I was just commenting on their work like "nice job" and giving them critiques all the time and stuff like that. And then, one day, one of them blocked me, and then the other did. It was annoying as fukkk

Yes. They can still view your page and all of your comments. They just can't fave your art, watch you, or contact you at all.

That is just quite unfortunate. I was hoping DA would include the same feature that Facebook has which is to completely block him that he can't even access my profile. Shameful it is.

So there's no one place where you can see a list of people. You only find out when you try to write something on their page or reply to a message from them.

It isn't like you get a notification unless they comment at you first.
