    Introducing the new "Profanity Filter"

    A new profanity filter has been implemented to attempt to keep the site more family oriented. As I am well aware, many of you are not a fan of censorship, but don't worry. By default, all members who have been registered for 2 or more days and have 10 posts or more, the filter is turned off with no action required to be taken. Guests and members who do not meet the above requirements, the filter is automatically turned on. For members who do not meet those requirement or those who wish to enable or disable this filter, the option can be changed by following the steps below:

    Settings > General Settings > Thread Display Options > Profanity Filter

    In addition to the introduction to this filter, in the coming weeks, the rules and policies will be revised to forbid or reduce the use of excessive profanity along with many other things to ensure we have a more welcoming community to people of all age group, ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds.

    Hopefully some of you will find this new feature useful! [​IMG]

    Doesn't really bother me much, grew up around men and women for that matter that were colourful. It doesn't offend me but then again it takes a lot to bother me, sometimes a well placed profane word is required. If the filter helps the site out then all the power to you.

    I'm on another forum set up in this format & if someone cusses then it switchs the words into other words that are pretty funny. Sh!t= Smurf, f*ck= fragglerock, damn =doogiehowser ... Etc... I had no clue what was going on when I first joined just thought they talked funny... But now I think Smurf all the time. ;) just an idea.

    I'm quite sure I could probably make it work that way, however this is more of a per member setting and a setting that is automatically enabled for guests and new members.

    I try to keep my profanity to fila threads and controversial section. Any political thread should just start in controversial as thats where it's headed

    Ok, so am I to understand that using the profanity filter is optional?

    & that those of us who wish to keep the profanity in tact whilst reading threads will not have the integrity of what we are reading of someone else's filtered if we choose?

    Please break it down for me, a.k.a 'idiot-proof' style.

    Not only am I on the short bus, but my dog is literally a window licker.
