Chat Menu Word Filter

Post by DoomCarrot » Tue Jul 26, 2016 10:05 pm

So, a bunch of people on the global chat have been complaining about the word filter. Many words (especially german, apparently), have the letters that spell ass in them, like assistance, and this makes the entire word a curse.

Also, the filter is very broken, as it seems any capital letters in a curse makes the word filter not see it.

profanity filter

Post by TheBluePhoenix » Wed Sep 28, 2016 4:02 am

Some words which may follow might be disturbing to some readers. Reader descretion is advised :D

Okay , so its good that this filter is active. But it has problems- serious problems

In the game where we and doom are partners against coolguy and hardeep; i used two words in a chat to doom- assassin and horsemen. No profanity? I am afraid the filter doesnot think so. It said i used 'ass' because of which i had to forget all grammer and spell assassin as asasin. I thought the problem was over but no , the filter accused me of using semen in the chat..
Now seriously horsemen???
I was laughing for like 10 minutes :lol:

Please rectify it dev..

Possible Solution
(per Detros)
  • So let's come with a whitelist. That may be the one way, other one would be to check only whole words against list of profanities.
  • assassin, assassins, (assassinates, assassinated, assassinatable)
  • documentation
  • horsemen
Here is the current whitelist:

Code: Select all

static final String[] profaneWhitelist = new String[]{
"password",
"pass",
"assassin",
"documentation",
"horsemen",
};

Well it does interfere in the simplicity of chatting but you have much more important things to do(eg recording games maybe :D ) so this can wait
I just thought it would be hilarious to report it :D

Yes... i would disable it too xD

the best thing would be a censorship that you can enable/disable (it change profanity with symbols)

It is kind of annoying. :lol:
It bans some not really offensive joking words, like nerd. :P

MP - overreactive bad words filter

Post by Detros » Tue Jan 03, 2017 3:18 am

I am unable to use word "documentation" in MP ingame message. Using "docmentation" instead worked :/
No profanity intended, of course.

Hahahahaha, another word the filter hates :lol:

I ASSess that the word filter should have a better doCUMentation of actual curses. Point made, it is difficult to chat when 1 out of 10 words is banned. :lol:

Well, at least the filter showed where is the problem. I would be quite confused if it only stated "you have used bad word, fix it".
Also, at first, before I noted "doc*mentation" I thought it may be checking backwards too and the problem is actually in "much" :D.

Actually, the most problematic word is a word you can find in every second MP global chat note.

Not sure if you fixed this in AoS, but it's getting on my nerves in AoF. The profanity filter does nothing, since there's just too many ways around it, except make normal conversation difficult. being forced to use only one s in assassin, add a space to document, etc. gets annoying.

sorry i know, but i had yet time to fix it, and i still think it is not that important than other issues, or is it really that annoying - so shall i re-consider it and think most importance?

it could be easy if u collect an "accepted words" list so i can easily (low coding time)accept common words by temporaryly removing them from text and running the profanity chk after.

I think it's mostly the ones already mentioned that are the worst. If it isn't a priority, I understand.

Because people like to think the short name of Japanese "jap" is an offensive word.

With the holiday season, another blocked word was found: Christmas, because of "Christ"...

Found another banned word. Scooter. Without the "s" it is bad.
