I have noticed that kixeye has censored there own forum rulebook which is very interesting as this can lead to confusion from the community was is allowed or not allowed on the forums. Here is the section which got censored.
KIXEYE CS RUBI said:
  • Inappropriate Content and Language: Certain topics and subjects are deemed inappropriate and not permitted on the official KIXEYE forums or in chat. Things that we consider inappropriate are usually illegal, extremely volatile or violent, obscene, vulgar, or simply inappropriate for an official game forum such as ours. Inappropriate content on the KIXEYE forums or chat includes, but is not limited to, the following:
    • Extreme violence
    • Illegal substances and activities
    • Pirated copyright-protected material
    • Discussing suspected cheaters or hackers
    • Discussing cheats or hacks
    • **** and other sexually explicit topics
    • Real-world religion and politics
    • Tasteless, vulgar, or obscene material
    • Attempting to sell your game account
Which word do you all think is hidden behind the stars?
Video games don't cause violence, lag does.

    I'm still surprised that the auto censor has gone so far that it has even started to censor the forum rules them self. What will be the next step?

    Well I doubt they inserted any sort of exceptions or exclusions feature that would cause it to avoid the rulebook, so it shouldn't be too much of a surprise that the rulebook gets censored. Who cares anyways, its not like a big deal.

    Yep. Kix is trying to be more "Christian," so something like this will probably be pasted on the mod's and CM's sigs. :p

    It is a known thing. There are some random words that are censored as well. The filter just kind of does whatever it wants to.

    Well, hopefully the filter doesn't pull a SkyNet and make an army of these things.  :o

    Its a pretty crap filter. Any idea why KIXEYE implemented this system when its:
    A - Easy to subvert.
    And;
    B - Incredibly strict on what it censors? Seriously, it censors the word damn_ for some reason.

    The word filter is a very interesting feature on the forum as it can censor wildly. Fortunately for me, I don't swear that much which means I'm very rarely affected by it directly and it's super easy to bypass like Thane explained.

    By the way, also welcome to off-topic.

    Here is every number from 1-12 written in Swedish and English.
    1. ett - one
    2. två - two
    3. tre - three
    4. fyra - four
    5. fem - five
    6. **** - six
    7. sju - seven
    8. åtta - eight
    9. nio - nine
    10. tio - ten
    11. elva - eleven
    12. tolv - twelve

    Why have you added a bit about 1 to 12 in multiple languages Axel? Seems like a bit on a random addition.

    This do also show that in some cases, it's impossible to to translate and write in different languages as the auto censor feature is in some cases very strict and that 1 letter can make a massive difference.

    It would be interesting to see a dictionary of which words that will be censored on the forums.

    Still awful random though? Where did you get the idea originally to just add 1 through 12 in Swedish?

    'Twas the new CM's idea. Probably because when it was implemented we were bleeping out words in every other post.

    The forums platform wasn't designed by Kixeye, and neither was the filter. It is just a tool that some says "Hey! I want the thing!" and then they click a button.

    Also, your spelling is technically the profanity. Drop the "N" for the concrete wall.

    You mean CM_Major_Rampage?

    I know that. If I recall correctly, the forums are actually powered by Vanilla and their software. Still, surely they must have the capacity to tweak it to loosen or tighten some restrictions because in its current iteration, I think its too strict. Especially considering how it also shortens every word it deems profanity down to 4 asterisks, potentially making every swear word look like the f word. That or at the very least it makes sentences read wrongly because its hard to figure what word might have been in place unless the context is relatively specific.
    Also, your spelling is technically the profanity. Drop the "N" for the concrete wall.
    Yeah, but that's how the word is used. Like if I wanted to say damn_ it, that's how you write it. Not write it as dam it.
    Besides, damn_ is a pretty common word, and surely its not that bad is it? Especially since as its been stated in other threads that damn_ these days is typically used as an explanation or adjective to help emphasise a point.

    But, profanity is against forum rules. Even in the off-topic area, it is just policed less here due to the 10 people who come here are adults and seem to be capable of handling it.

    Well, that, and our resident mod seems to have disappeared again. Do you know what happened to Hyperius Templar?
    I believe his primary domain was BP, same as you. Any idea why he's gone again?

    He has had other obligations. He doesn't have near the free time he used to.

    As for the rest of us...

    Would I be right in assuming at least part of those are family related obligations?  I remember him telling us lot around here about his son. I also remember him telling us about being involved in a car crash. Is that also part of it?

    You know, with memes and good jokes like these, I think you'd fit in well around here Templar. You should think about sticking around.
