Xt3 gives you the option to manage your privacy settings, so as to limit who can and can't send you messages on the site.
You can find your privacy settings in two ways:
In the screen ‘Edit Profile', you will see the heading "My Privacy Settings" and beneath that "Private Messages". Here you will see a box with a drop down menu that gives you four options to choose from, as detailed below:
Choose the privacy setting that you wish to have and then click on "Save" at the bottom of the screen. You can change the setting at any time.
Please note, regardless of which option you choose, Xt3 will always be able to send you private messages.
You can block individual members from sending you private messages. To do this, once they have sent you a private message, click on the person icon at the end of the message. You will then be taken to a screen titled "Block User" where it will ask you "Are you sure you want to block (user's name)". If you are, select "Block User". You will then be taken back to the Private Message page with a message at the top confirming that "You have now blocked (user's name)".
Once you have blocked a member, if you go to "Edit Profile" you will see an additional tab titled "Blocked users". If you click on this it will show who you have blocked and opposite their name there will be the option to "unblock" that person. If you select this you will see a message at the top of the screen that says "You are no longer blocking (user's name)".
