Ignore Options

The following chat functions can be used to ignore or avoid unwanted chat contact in Battle.net classic games.

Please make a selection from the menu above.

Do Not Disturb

The Do Not Disturb (DND) feature prevents direct chat contact or whispers. You can set up a custom message that will display when another player contacts you. While in DND, you are able to see and participate in public contact channels. To use DND, type the following in chat:

  • /dnd

To set a custom message for DND, type the following in chat:

  • /dnd text

(Example: /dnd Sorry, playing a game with Droktar.)

Ignore

The Ignore feature prevents direct chat contact or whispers from all characters on the specified player's account, but this only protects the character you are currently logged on with. To use Ignore, type the following in chat:

  • /ignore user

or

  • /squelch user

Replace user with the name of the character contacting you.

Unignore

The Unignore feature removes a specific player from the ignore list and restores the ability to receive whispers from that player. To use Unignore, type the following in chat:
 
  • /unignore user

or

  • /unsquelch user

Replace user with the name of the character contacting you.

Chat Protection Options

There are three separate options a user can set to customize which incoming chat messages are ignored or hidden through in-game chat commands: Whispers, Public, and Private.
