    Ok, I get the whole idea of ignoring someone here. You prevent them from contacting you because you don't want them contacting you. But I'm being ignored by someone I played fun games with and had good conversations with. It's sorta outta the blue, and I'm curious what's happened? Any chance a moderator would send them a message for me?

    There are all sorts of reasons for putting people on ignore, and some of them are quite trivial. For example, I put someone on ignore because he kept preaching jesus at me, even after I tactfully pointed out that religion isn't part of my world view. Can you recall any sharing of opinions on controversial topics?

    You could check his games in progress, Pm one of his opponents & ask them to find out for you

    i assumed he just had it with that game and thought we'd play again sometime
    but im ignored now
    I had a girlfriend like that once. She thought I was cheating by consulting experts on the moves I was making.

    I don't.
    Those stats are
    a) Below the thresholds stated by Squelchbelch to be indicative of box use
    b) Taken over a ridiculously small sample size.

    What's your point?

Any chance a moderator would send them a message for me?
    Look at it another way, for some reason the player no longer wants to speak to you or play you.

    The story would go like this

    rcklein to Mr Moderator "can you ask Joebloggs why he is ignoring me?"

    Mr Moderator to rcklein "OK"

    Mr Moderator to Joebloggs "Why are you ignoring rckein?"

    No response after 2 days

    Mr Moderator to Joebloggs "I asked why are you ignoring rckein?"

    No response after a further 2 days

    *getting tetchy*

    Mr Moderator to Joebloggs "Why are you ignoring me?"

    No response after a further 2 days

    rcklein to Mr Moderator "How are you getting on? Any response yet?

    No response after 2 days

    rcklein to Mr Moderator "I asked you a question, how are you getting on? Any response yet?

    No response after 2 days

    rcklein goes to the Forums and starts a thread

    "Joebloggs and Mr Moderator are ignoring me, what can I do?"

    Like sucks, people get ignored, move on.
