removing from the filters list

Postby glucht23 » Mon Feb 24, 2014 5:07 pm

Idiot shouldn't be blocked there's a ton of other words that will be used anyways i'd like to quote from another topic

I have to agree with this. Not everyone should be punished because some people take advantage of using these words and commands. And in terms or removing some words more words with the same or worse meanings will be born so there's not much of an escape route from that meaning being used with a different word.

I can see why it was blocked, but I also agree with MM. Debateable on this one.
all forms of noob - it's been voted to be removed before I don't know why it was readded >.>

Well, abuse of it and excessive usage as insults are 2 of many reasons why they're still on there.
.com and http its much easier to link your trades

Linking to trades could trigger log outs, seeing as there are 3 different domains for the game. You'd have to change the address each time depending on which domain you're using. And searching up an account isn't that hard or time-consuming ._.
the ability to use /me - it's fun to use /me long as people don't overuse it again

It's only blocked in #PBATrades (and auctions, but so is everything else). I don't see the point in unblocking it in a trades channel, seeing as it's mainly used in general conversation and role-play, both of which belong in #pba.
hashtags which are awesome to use -the people who advertise channels with them should just be banned why punish everyone else >.>

As soon as you use a #, people automatically assume you're talking about a channel, and at least one person then goes in search of said channel and blah blah. That one will be staying, me's thinks.

As demonstrated in above posts, there are some more words which should probably be blocked instead of just put on the badwords list.

people are lazy and people could request a link and you could provide it the advantage of it being posted on a channel is that people will click it and then login but still they'll go check the trades page not many people go check peoples trades... I never do unless they name something i want i don't check too lazy to go to find trainers

but on average #pbatrades is most active for chatting too which makes it the fun place

if people are stupid enough to think that #YOLO or #swag is a channel then they need the experience of finding out otherwise anyways :3

A word that is more commonly used by young adults/older teenagers, NOT younger people at which the game is aimed at.
people are lazy

Agreed
and people could request a link and you could provide it the advantage of it being posted on a channel is that people will click it and then login but still they'll go check the trades page not many people go check peoples trades... I never do unless they name something i want i don't check too lazy to go to find trainers

But then, you forget all the other things like viruses, 'Log in to get premium' sites, and a whole bunch of other inappropriate urls. Though I do think that the levels list should be amended so that access of 3 (i.e. me) can avoid the filter in order to ban/unban hostmasks involving things like .com on the end.
but on average #pbatrades is most active for chatting too which makes it the fun place

We can't force people to use #pba (well we could but we won't unless extreme). If they want to use /me, they can go to #pba.
if people are stupid enough to think that #YOLO or #swag is a channel then they need the experience of finding out otherwise anyways :3

There's also advertising actual channels, which comes to mind with a certain someone... And yeah, abuse by certain people would probably get it put back immediately.

not true all I needed was a agree basing this topic on viewtopic.php?f=36&t=20608 I just am unable to use the poll method

A topic made over a year ago. But anyways, if those words are to be removed, we have to have valid reasons, and lots of them, for doing so. If you want them removed, you better post why. Otherwise, your argument will look very weak.

i think:
You just want idiot back so you can go back to calling people idiots which will cause fights.
noob isn't that bad but again, it won't be used light heartedly.
.com can be removed because people can link to forum
/me can be unblocked
hashtags i don't think should be removed because again, advertising
