In an effort to save some time, and in regards to a recent topic on the subject, we are changing our word censoring from a manual system to an automatic one. Everyone should be defaulted into seeing the few words we normally censor to appear as censored and they will appear the same way, with only stars added, not the words changed say from "pissed" to [urinated], as when we censor them manually.

You yourself can choose whether to have this censoring enabled or not. If you don't mind seeing them, or would prefer to see words uncensored, you can change the settings in your User Control Panel. Please keep in mind that this means that the words are censored across the board - if you leave the word censoring enabled, they will also be censored in the Ring, and if you turn it off, you will be able to see them as they were typed by the poster in the Campfire because our system cannot separate out by forum.

To change the default settings, click the User Control Panel link at the top right hand corner of the forum page, then follow the prompts here:

We want to reassure you again that this is not a change in policy, just a change in it being done automatically instead of manually and the words that are censored will appear as they do now with stars substituted for letters as we've previously asked. Thank you!

A decision worthy of Solomon. Personally I don't really use curse words but am not offended by them.

Thank you for the work you do. I appreciate it. Might I suggest that the word in your example be changed to "urinated"? I don't believe urined is a word. I really appreciate the fact that users can choose whether to use this feature- nice touch! Thanks!

What about words or combinations of words that mean something pornographic or are highly offensive?

Good catch - Fixed, thanks!

We will still be reviewing posts manually and changing anything offensive or inappropriate. We didn't want to go overboard with this, it's only meant to save some time with the commonly starred words, not take care of each and every issue. We didn't want it to unintentionally star normal words, or change them in a silly or irritating way, and we are still asking that you try to star other adult words, with keeping in mind that there may be under 18 year olds reading this.

Thanks for the comments and questions, we appreciate the feedback!

I don't think words should ever be changed. Only starred.

This is starting to feel like one of those word games I play on my IPad
