    New Feature: Swear Filter Update

    Due to feedback from the community, today we are rolling out a new feature which Chris has added to the settings section of users profiles. This feature gives the user the ability to opt-out of word censorship. However, the feature is on by default for persons under 18 and guests of the forums.

    To access the options head to your userCP:



    Select "Edit Profile" from the navigation panel:



    And scroll down to the 'Additional Information' section:



    Setting it to 'on' will replace all instances of profanity with asterisks,
    The 'off' option will leave posts as typed by users.

    Note: The filter will be active on all members accounts until this option is changed by the user.

    Note2: As with any new feature, if you spot a bug or issue with the new feature, forward any info to Admin and we will sort it out asap

    It's a really good initiative, Christopher. I question which version of the forum children/"family" are most likely to visit though.. Pc or app.

    I don't actually care enough about swearing to turn off the swear filter. It doesn't affect embedded videos or anything like that, just people's posts, so as far as censorship goes, it's pretty light.

    Yeah, I don't know. The intent wasn't entirely to make the site more kid friendly with the swear filter. As a parent, my kids seeing the f-bomb thrown around on a gaming message board is the last thing that concerns me about what they may be seeing on the internet.

    We really just wanted to make the site more inviting to new members. Some people don't like to see a bunch of cusswords. So now, they don't have to. This is a great compromise that Fiji came up with. Kudos to the CM!

    This has been thrown around for years. Yes, nice that it was finally done.

    Yup. What I meant to say I don't mind the cussing now, but I know I thought it was daunting 1 1/2 year ago when I started being more engaged in the community. The same goes for the posting culture, counting threads.

    Nothing wrong with the thread itself. It's was just the concept leaving a mark in a forum where people have already accumulated a 5-digit number of posts in only a few years. Did I mention that I'm all past that? Don't through me out to the wolfs,
