View Full Version : Censorship Temporary Experiment

Logical's whining finally convinced me to get off of my ass and try to find a solution to a user-level censorship add-on for vBulletin. I'm pleased to tell you that (I think) I've found it.

In your User CP under Edit Options (http://www.chiefsplanet.com/BB/profile.php?do=editoptions), you should now find a field near the bottom of the list entitled "Self Censor Posts". According to theory, any words you put in there will be automatically censored by the board, but only for you. Other users will be unaffected.

If it works, we could potentially do away with the forced censors and let people decide for themselves. There are still some quirks to work out of course, but it seems promising.

Anyway, could some of you all try it out and let me know if it seems to be working? I tried it on a couple different things, but haven't had time to test it in depth.

Yeah it works. I entered "a" as a word. The main forum page is littered with *'s.

kinda like a spam filter of sorts ....


not that i'm gonna use it, but maybe it could include some base blacklists?

dunno how many people are gonna start typing every dirty word they can think of with ever dirty variation in their list.

By the way, the old words are still in there, so it's not going to do you any good (for now) to try out the f-word and such.

Damnit. I tried putting in CuFuntck, but spelled out.

I'm pretty sure that I can add in defaults for new users, but I don't think I can do much for existing users. I'd definitely have to put up a sticky announcing it if I do turn off our existing filters.

If it seems to work, I'll turn off the built-in features. Then you can go f*ck yourself all day long. :D

I think an option to turn the filter on/off would be a much better solution...

Now, if only we could have an option to not put asterisks but to actually replace the censored word with another word.

Once again, all of our "normal" censors are still in place. If I decide to go with this system, those will be removed. But until then, you'll have to try it out with other words.

ClevelandBronco

Now we need to be able to customize our own substitutions.

For instance, when someone keys in "Shanarat," I want to see Lord Shanny.

When someone keys in "CRONUS," I want to see Logical.

What do you say, DaButt?

Wow. That was fast. Good work.

Forgive me for suggesting it, but I think you already have been bought. It just took the idea of having other people pay for your health care.

I'll give this one bump. It seems to work fine, except for titles just above the original post. Other than that, it seems to filter out words in posts and titles (in the Lounge) just fine.

10-02-2008, 01:33 PM
Well, let's test this out.

**** you

Nope, I'm still getting censored. I must have done it wrong.

Mr. Plow
10-02-2008, 01:45 PM
LOL. Try typing in "***" as a censor word.

EDIT: Damn censor works too well....


Try typing in "T h e" as a censor word.


EDIT #2: I just realized that it only censors for me....sooooooo.....nevermind.

what is interesting is I get more * then I should. Of course it is funny that now the F word is censored as *'s in the list.

I'm thinking about it. I'm debating between this and another approach that would basically let us set the filters at the server level and people could "opt out" if they want to. The main issue with this approach is that there wouldn't be any filtering for people who aren't logged in, and I'd rather keep that in place if possible.

The "sub" versions move the subforums (media center, DC, etc) to the bottom of the page.
