What happens when I mute someone?  

If you mute someone, they will not be able to send you an inbox message, write on your profile’s message board, or leave any comments on your stories. This action is reciprocal, and you will also be unable to contact them through these channels. Please also note that if you mute someone, they will still be able to view your profile, read, and vote on your stories.

If I mute someone, will they be notified? 

No, they will not be directly notified. If they try to contact you through the channels listed above, a pop up message will appear simply stating that they cannot interact with you.

How do I know if I have been muted?

You may have been muted by someone if you are unable to send someone an inbox message, write on their profile’s message board, or leave any comments on their stories.
