Moderators can only answer this! And yes I agree there are alot of spammers
  • uri
I like your idea btw :)
@dmezzullo i have seen his idea been suggested before...but i do not remember the reply to it :)
*this
Should i tag a mod?
Its not required, They will surely read this.
What I have to say on this is that even in chat we have only filter for a limited number of word filters .There are tons of wierd names a person can come up with ..I have examples but do not want to mention here....So its better you report a person when you see their username is not appropriate
I do that and i talk to a mod, But it jus gets really annoying how ppl do it over and over again, Y cant they jus have a filter?!?!?! lol
What i am trying to say is that if we filter a word like funny for example ..the user can adjust it like f-unny or f1unny .still it is inappropriate (funny is an example lols)
Ya but like when they blatenly do it like the two examples i put up in the question box im talking about those.
Only a Admin could really answer his question, i thought that this is what confirming your email for OS was for but i guess not. They should make it a lot more strict.
please do not tag mods like that @dmezzullo ....i told you they will surely take a look
Do not tag them, i would remove that, especially shadow
Y esp shadow?
infact shadowfiend has mentioned this many times in feed back
Shadow does not like being tagged. Especially the Admins
@SWAG great minds think alike :)
Haha yes they do @AravindG
I think I'll have to address this in my app... Anyway, great idea :)
Lol thanks :P

^ Unnecessary Comments.
Thats true Swag she don't know when to stop.
mhm
Yeah. That.
This topic has been discussed before, and the general consensus last time, was that putting that kind of filter in for usernames would not be worth it. I'm not sure of the details, so I'll wait for the admins to get here before I try to explain things too incorrectly.
Just report the user and it will be dealt with.
how can u delete a account
Also been discussed^
my bf needs his deleted
...
lol that's ridiculous.
You can't delete accounts. I think that we've been over this quite a few times now.
srry thnks
I second what KingGeorge says. As I understand the discussion last time it came up, filters on usernames were impractical because bad words are easily embedded in other characters - 10101*badname*10101. The search for substrings and substring variants like 10101*bandame*10101 is tougher to implement than searches on bad words picked up by the language filter. Personally, I think they should be filtered; that is mere statement of the reasons I was given why they are not. You'd need an admin to comment.
Just mah two cents, because I know everyone loves it :3 I think making a filter for names is really impractical. As Blues said, it is SO easy to go around a filter. I think if people just reported them it would really be a major issue. There are not *that* many people (proportional to everyone else joining) that create inappropriate usernames and when a mod or admin see them they take care of it.
if there's no mod or admin though, then reporting will give them a community ban.
We rely on ourselves and moderators to suspend such users. We're not even convinced the filters for chat, replies, and questions are worth it. They result in two things: - The filtered versions of the words become as “bad” as the original versions anyway, so we're doing the same moderation work. - There are trivial ways around any filter that are impossible to address.
