oh based mods and administrators, please grace your presence unto my own unworthy one. I ask thee to please spare some of your godly time atop Mount Olympus and consider my peasant request.

Okie dokes, see how horrible and crass bad words look written like this:

"f*ck"?

How about we replace them with brightly colored HEARTS? Like so:

♥♥♥♥

Wouldn't that gently ease the bad word in the sentence? It'll make the reader biggrin.gif instead of sad.gif or mad.gif !!

so for example:
Zachary Levi: Hi!
Me: Omg I would like to f*ck you pls
Zachary Levi: brb
Me: ;_;


would change to:
Zachary Levi: Hi!
Me: Omg, I would like to ♥♥♥♥ you pls
Zachary Levi: How nice of you to say that! Here are my pants.
Me: pictureem0.gif


Just wondering of course. I think there are admin options for customizing the filter (you know, since the f-word, for instance, is written as it is). If not das cool, I just think it's a better alternative :3


Thank you for your time!

As interesting an idea as that is it wouldn't really work as one, there is no option to add images to replace words. And two, as odd as it sounds it really wouldn't be 'appropriate'. Meaning that if a member is having an especially bad day, and just wants to rant and let out everything, having bright pink hearts take over where he/she wanted to write a cuss word would probably piss them off even more ^^;

Behold my skill in topic necromancy! A-hem...

I agree...

But all jokes aside, adding images to replace swear words is not only counter-productive to the loading speed of the forums (images>text) but it will also cause confusion and the other members will not know what the ffff you are saying...

Good idea, but it just wouldn't work here sad.gif

@shaunananaa: LOL oh good point. the pink hearts are nice, as well as deadly. hmm, well it was just a passing thought. I saw it on the steam forums, and i thought it was kinda cute.

@denset: what... loading speeds? it's alternative text, not streaming embedded video wtf. also we've got a youtube THREAD here. idk what you're saying, are you a mod?

IDK, having hearts all over my cuss words would make my day since I would be WTFLOLOLOLOLOL if I was mad.

But that's just me.
