Compared to the censor filter in the battle chat, the censor filter in the forums is far too weak. People can get around swear words just by deleting 1 or 2 letters in the middle and even worse, some swear words aren't getting filtered at all(shit, crap, piss, etc.). Unlike the garage chat channel where a moderator can track down filter bypasses or battle chat where one can screenshot and report players bypassing the filter, on the forums, it's hard for a moderator to view each and every single post one makes, thus letting a lot more swear words survive on the forums. Not only do they look unpleasant, but they can also be very offensive to specific people. There are still posts that I checked hours ago that still haven't been edited, even though they are full of swearing and cursing.

What words are considered offensive? Just asking.

well, simple. there is a report button below everyone's name and their picture here, so you can report whoever tries to violate

Well, if that feature was working properly, why would I be making this topic?

A censor filter is quite irritating to implement as people will always find out new and creative ways to bypass the filter. The easiest way to fix this would be to employ moderators (but lol, we only have one) or rely on the community to report the post.

 

Not saying it's impossible, but considering how WG's new in-game "anti-mod system" is going along with all the false positives, I'd prefer not to have a filter just yet.

Be aware ‘shit’ and ‘crap’ aren’t actually swear words. However they are taken to be derogatory.

I agree, we need no swearing on our profiles. No hecks and no fricks.
