This poll will run until April 14. That is 30 days, I believe. Anyways, the poll will run for 30 days and 30 days ONLY. If you have a comment to make, make sure you be specific. Other than that, all I really need is your vote.

Thanks for your time,

Rain Stinks, Head Admin.

EDIT: You can change your vote if you want.

My thoughts,

Honestly I dont really think we "need" a filter, because we can leave it up to everybody to talk normally without curses and such unless the occasion calls for it, but then again this is just my opinion

Which is the exact reason why I've been debating all BLARGHING weekend about whether or not we should just get rid of the stupid thing...we've already had issues with it.

Yea, issues suck >.<
On the other hand you can issue warnings if people swear enough to bother other members, and if they get enough warnings...well they get a temp/perma ban =x

That's the side I've been thinking about...I mean, we can always deal out punishments. But, do we really want to take the time for it?

That's why I'm leaving it up to the members to decide.

I think it's better if we'll all try to post. In that way, we can tell if someone knows how to control themselves in saying curse words.. heh, that's just my opinion. Don't really know what Im saying. Shocked

Rain I voted NO! because, one there have been issues in my fanfic with it.
Two because if we really want to swear there are ways to go around the filters and people know it.

Which is why I'm leaning towards getting rid of it.

Also, I think I might make the poll run only until March 31st.

So, you think we should keep it or get rid of it?

He meant to keep it, but if we do that could you please disable it in Fanfiction?

Nah, we talked yesterday. He doesn't want it, he'll change his vote today.

And if we have a filter, we have it everywhere. I can't disable it per section or anything. It's annoying.

Can you choose what words you want to filter, if so. How about filtering only some of the serious ones.

It's possible, but a rather long process I'd rather not do unless I need to. Plus, it takes one little thing and (as some members can attest to) the entire system gets fried in a way and words that shouldn't get filtered do.

I don't see the actual point of filters. It's not like we will post around using innapropriate words just because we can. As we have witnessed, filters can be annoying and can create confusion. On the other hand, I guess we all had our share of bad words until now, so why bother to hide it? If you play online video games, there's even more to it.

Makes sense, and considering the poll is currently 7:2 in favor of dropping it, I think it's going "Bye-bye." I'll give it 'till Wednesday or Thursday before I act on it.
