Please note: 'Captions' is used above as a catch-all term to refer to any original written content attached to an image post. This includes comments, discussions, journal-type posts and stories which can be hundreds or even thousands of words in length.
Could you please provide some way of preventing other users from deleting captions/stories/other original written content when they reblog image-based posts?
There are a number of us who are primarily here to write, share our written content and have discussions rather than posting pictures and we are getting really fed up with people who repeatedly delete captions despite being asked not to.
Having an inbuilt option to prevent people from doing this so that we can retain control of our original written content would be very greatly appreciated by many users.
Could you please look into adding an option that individual users can enable in their blog settings which would prevent anyone but the original poster of the written content from deleting written content attached to image-based posts? Alternatively, adding a button that would allow us to 'lock' a caption into a post could also work.
Failing this, can you please have a look at how blocking works sitewide? To my mind, when you block another user that person should no longer be able to engage with you or your content, even indirectly. It really isn't ideal if I block someone and they can still reblog my posts or comment on them using the old comments system if they come across them on someone else's blog as is currently the case. This is a flaw that I think needs to be addressed more generally, but it could be one way of managing the problem of people deleting captions. If blocking were more robust, at least then we could block people who do this without them being able to do the same thing again if they come across a reblog of one of our posts on another user's blog.
