Hello Gameflipians! How is everyone doing? I hope all is well! Today I will be touching on the topic of having the option to block rude users and deleting comments.
Although the majority of the Gameflip community is filled with amazing people who are polite, respectful and just all around wonderful human beings, we do have our fair share of trolls. When unpleasant (vulgar, sexual, racist, etc) comments are made, we are told to contact support about it to have the comment removed. Personally, I think Gameflip support is great and they do their best with everyone’s concerns, but the app is growing everyday (YAY!) and I noticed the turn around time has increased significantly. As a result, these inappropriate comments linger for hours or sometimes even days in the community until it is finally addressed by someone at Gameflip. If a seller had the option to delete the useless comment made by someone on their listing, the unpleasantness would be dealt with on the spot and no one else would have to witness it. Additionally, there have been times where rude users continue to harass a seller for hours by repeatedly commenting or spamming all their other listings with childish remarks. This cause a tremendous amount of stress and unnecessary drama for the seller who can be investing that time filling orders, creating new listings and replying to customer inquires. This problem can easily be solved if sellers are given the option to block users from their store that are causing problems.
All in all, the ability to block rude users and delete comments isn’t and shouldn’t be considered just a feature, it is a right. Please Gameflip, if you are about the community, please bless us with these two options. Other apps and sites have done this and it has worked wonders!
Thank you for all of your time!
