Enhanced Profanity Filter
The new and improved Profanity Filter has a lot of changes.
The filter is split into two types:
- Hard Filter
- Soft Filter
For both types of filters, all filtered words will be replaced with $%#!.
How the Hard Filter works:
The Hard Filter automatically replaces text in the original post, ensuring that users will never see the offending words. This is for the readers' benefit and has no impact on the severity of moderation.
Hard Filtered words include slurs and other words that are not allowed on Mafia Universe under any circumstances. Moderators can see the original content of the message and any content you post will be moderated as if the word was not filtered out, so behave accordingly.
Some words may not be Hard Filtered because they have other meanings. In these cases the moderators may edit out the offending words when they are brought to our attention, provided they meet the criteria for a hard censor.
How the Soft Filter works:
The Soft Filter is a custom list of words that only changes what you see as an individual user. The Soft Filter list can be customized by editing the Profanity Filter List field from your User CP. Removing all of the words will default back to the original list.
To disable the Soft Filter, set the Profanity Filter setting to Off directly above the Profanity Filter List setting.
