View Full Version : New feature: optional profanity filtering


DaFace

I just added this to the FAQ:

How can I adjust the profanity filter?
By default, all users are configured to use a small set of profanity filters. However, we recognize that different people have different preferences for how profanity is handled on the forum. As such, you have the following options to control the forum's profanity filters:

If you would rather not use the default filter list, change your default style to "Full Featured (unfiltered)" in your User CP under "Edit Options."
If you would like to add additional words to the forum's word censor list, you can do so in your User CP under "Edit Options" as well. Look for "Self Censor Posts" toward the bottom of the list. Words you enter into the box will be replaced by asterisks in the forum.


So if you've always wanted to be able to say fuck, now's your chance. Let me know if you find any issues with this setup, but I think it should work out pretty well. Enjoy. :)

I'll mention that the "bannable offense" of bypassing profanity filters still stands; now there's just no reason to even try. Just spell things out normally and life will be peachy.

Oh, and the rest of this thread is probably going to be filled with people "testing out" the new filter, so be warned that there will probably be a ton of ***'s.

Known quirks:

You may have to clear your cookies for the board to save the new style as your default. I don't know why.
Posts from people who have the censor turned on will be saved in the database filtered, so they'll show up as ***'s even for people who have filtering turned off.

For some reason, I had to clear my cookies to get it to switch to the other style permanently. Not sure why that is, but some of the rest of you may run into that.

No. Anything filtered by the "old" system was censored by the database itself, so it's saved in there as ***'s. I turned this system on last night, so anything after that will become uncensored if you change your style.

One interesting thing I've already noticed...if the message is submitted by a person who has censorship on, it'll be stored in the db filtered. So you'll only see unfiltered messages from others who have censorship off.

Copy case, not just characters. "FUCK" was typed in upper, but the filter converted to lower.

It'll only catch the word "f***", so try not to do the above.

No can do. It's an annoying technical issue with this approach. No matter what I do, it'll always convert it to lower case.

Yeah, I'm trying to reorganize our styles so that the whole lowercase thing doesn't happen.

DaFace
10-04-2008, 09:32 AM
OK, I think I got everything rearranged. For those using the unfiltered version, case will no longer be affected. However, the censored versions all have lower case letters no matter what.

Let me know if you see anything screwy in any of the layouts. That took more work than I thought it would.

You know, I really find this all kind of amusing.

In the end, whether it's filtered or not, you usually know exactly what is being said.

What is the fucking point?

No clue. But I was getting tired of getting reports from people irritated that people were bypassing the filters. So now there's no point to do so whatsoever.

Personally, if this "f*ck" was considered bypassing the filters, those people need to get a grip. :shake:

Meh, whatever. I don't think that particular iteration was reported, but I can't remember for sure. The main thing is that I'm all for allowing people to customize their experience here to the extent possible, so I like the idea of giving people a choice in the matter.

Not a huge number or anything, but yeah. I think the issue is the "kid looking over your shoulder" or "at work" thing. And I can understand that.

Porn really doesn't cost money anymore unless you're into some crazy fetish stuff, like people smearing turds all over themselves and licking it off of each other. Do a google search.

Not that it matters, but I removed that filter entirely. It was annoying me, though "The Man" jacks were kind of funny.

I'll unstick this for gameday, but probably put it back up tomorrow for the weekday crew.
