Or else this is straight up messed up
I think moderators are the only ones
they will when they get a chance. we only have a handful of mods and everyone is incredibly incredibly busy so sometimes it can take a while but you’ll never have to wait more than a day
we do try to get to things as soon as possible --well within our designated response time-- however we are all also real people and have our own real lives. sometimes things have to wait and yallre going to need to be patient about it and thats just that. súcks but thats what it is; mutual respect
Ok but the reason why it was filtered is really messed up
Im still pretty upset about why it was filtered
Because the filter is biased against my religeon
Hey, the reason that word puts the post in pending is because discussion about it can go downhill very quickly. Since people have different beliefs (and we respect that), the pending filter is there to make sure that when it is mentioned, no one is attacking someone else’s beliefs or defaming a certain opinion in their post.
For additional context, we do need to discuss your topic a bit for the reasons I mentioned above. Hopefully that helps to clarify!
Yet, people are able to mention pride?
This is different beliefs this is biased toward certain beliefs
And what about my topic?
Is that not allowed yet a topic promoting pride is?
You bring up some good points. While we didn’t create the list of filtered words and they have been in place long before we were moderators, we can hear your feedback and help make changes to improve the system.
We are discussing the points you brought up - and will loop in the hopscotch team to see if these are viable changes. Currently, there is a wait for approval of filtered posts - we’re a small team and are doing our best.
We respect your beliefs and you as an individual, we’re not too different and many of us may even have the same faiths! Many words, that can be used in malicious contexts to attack others beliefs or identities are filtered. Perhaps this is overprotective, and was more relevant at a different time of the forum’s history, and another system could work better - we’re always open to suggestions.
We’re community members just like you - we want this to be a great place for everyone. If there’s something you’re unhappy with, we’ll always do our best to help the situation!
Hey leaders? Has this been changed?
It has- in @Pollpeople
This seems to be true. Did you want the change in @/OceanPeople too?
hey william, edit history
Nope, that was the original, but it’s already fixed.
I have a question, can we own more than one tag?
unfortunately not, but there may be exceptions
as dragongirl mentioned, tag groups are limited to one group per person in order to reduce the amount of spam here on the forum :))
if you wish to change the name of your tag group, however, you can do so in this topic.
