Rubber Duckies

Postby adriannahowl on Mon Aug 27, 2007 6:23 am

I've noticed today that on all character sheets here, the section "Schmex"(had to put it like that so it wouldn't say rubber duckies) has all been changed to rubber duckies.

I just want to know if this is an error in the system, a hacker, or is purposly there.
OHMYWURD!

I thought we were only using *** in place of filtered words. I've brought this to the attn of the mod staff. I don't think "rubber duckies" is right.

Feel free to type around the filter, but for now, its staying there. Nothing against you guys at all...its the bots.

The purpose of nonsense words in place of stars is because with stars, one can still read what the word was supposed to be. With nonsense instead of stars, the mesage, at the very least, will be nonsense in itself. If we just replaced it with stars, that would sorta defeat the whole purpose of trying to thwart these bots and trolls (especially the trolls) in any way we can. :/

s-e-x was the only "mainstream" word filtered; the other ones are words our members shouldn't be posting anyways. >.>

Sorry for any trouble this causes, but honestly, it only takes you a few seconds to change that to "gender." :/ I think a few extra minutes of editing your posts is a small price to pay; you guys just have to bare with us until we figure out how to stop all this crap from invading WW. You guys don't see this, but we are deleting a whole bunch of bots and trolls every...single...day. >.<

PS: When the surge of p-o-r-n bots goes down, I'll remove s-e-x from the filter...but until then, its one of the most widely used words by the p-o-r-n bots and is in practically every title.

In the meantime, use the word "gender" in place of you know what for your profiles.

I just noticed and I thought someone hacked my account -whew- I feel better now.. So it has been removed for reasons on people using it immaturely or what??

I will just change it to Gender for now, but atleast instead of "Rubber Duckies," it could say, "***," I mean it's annoying, but there is no reason to whine about it I guess.

Probably should read the explanation post first. :/

Sorry but why couldn't you have just changed it to gender so everyone didn't have to go through and redo it all...

I don't know if you've noticed, Pride, but we've had a MASSIVE invasion of p-o-r-n trolls. They keep coming and posting all sorts of nasty crap. And I mean NASTY. If you haven't noticed, then I applaud the mod staff's diligence in the CONSTANT cleanup efforts we've been having to endure so you don't HAVE to see the trollish posts.

So tell me what's funnier:
"free Optimus Prime rubber duckies"
or
"free Optimus Prime gender"

I'm sorry that you are going to have to put in a bit extra effort to change a single word in probably less than ten posts in the character profile section.

ugh... sorry. I can't believe people are so bored with their lives that even post/or look at that nasty crap... it's trash.... that is so upsetting that we change that because people don't have lives.

WHOA, Saya.
I think you need to back off a little. EM was doing absolutely nothing wrong. Pride (and Adri) asked a question, their question was answered... I don't see where you get off bashing the Mods. They are doing their job just fine and neither EM nor Cerby were doing anything wrong. :/ I think you need to have a little respect for the mods and the job they are doing. No one was giving anyone crap, save for you just now. And me to you, it seems.
