Thanks! Yeah, I'm guessing the default is set to "wuss".

interesting, all my posts say I have made 5 posts. Looks like that is not working, not that it matters.

Triemstra will have nothing to do with this board if he can't cuss. . .for obvious reasons.

JJ

In the Admin area I found a box labeled 'allow users to turn off word censor' so I put a check in it.

I guess each user must have to turn off the censor themselves.

Click on 'profile' located in the middle of the top of this page.

after the page changes, look on the left under 'modify profile' and then click on 'look and layout'. 

half way down the page there will be a 'leave words uncensored'box.  check the box and then click on 'change profile' which is located at the lower right of the page.

This should, in theory, do it.

Now, I just did this for myself and I'm still getting words censored.  However, I have found some changes I made here didn't appear immediately so I'm going to give it a few hours before I call it a failure and continue looking. 

I got to go now. I won't be back online to sometime after 8pm tonight.  Hope it works by then or I'll continue looking for a solution.

censor testing:

During one of Lenny Bruce's performances, he says he was arrested for saying the following 9 words and says them in alphabetical order: ass, balls, ****, ****, ****, ****, ****, ****, ****.[2] The latter 7 became George Carlin's "7 Dirty Words".

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_dirty_words

------------

So bad news JhonJeter, looks like you can't post ANY of George Carlin's Seven Dirty Words.

I'll keep looking to see if there's a work around it but I expect I'll be as successful as the sox bullpen.

Until then, here's something for you JJ:

 "Let me poke around in the Admin area"

Careful this is what got _____________* in trouble.   

And this sounds much worse than  a few cuss words.

In an effort to make things easier.....

When you click on the HOME button located on the left near the top of this page, you will be redirected to the main page.

There I've added the following direct links for:

[1]  links to a Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs and Tigers forums.
[2]  links to our two backup White Sox forums at proboards.
[3]  link to the create-a-forum support forum

I second that.  Is there any way to fix the censor option?

You can probably kiss off the TOGWF (Triemstra Official Gametime Weather Forecast, pronounced "togwf") if there's no profanity. Either that, or it will be an extremely bowdlerized version.

I'm going to have to award a 20 point bonus for the word "bowdlerize" -- well done.

I saw somewhere on the Support board that the cendored words are due to the sponsors of the ads not wanting that kind of language on boards that they place their ads on...

You can remove the filter by buying ad-free blocks, but they are based on page views, and would be expensive in the long run.

Which sucks.

WC had a feature that allowed you to mark certain threads as read, See like I dont read certain threads because they dont interest me and I dont want to have to visit them just so that there is no new posts to read. This forum doesnt have a "Mark as read" thing to click on

Now that WC is officially dead...

I'd like to thank Andy for setting this this board up... you've definitely put in a lot of work and its appreciated.

Good to keep this group together... i am amazed we've been together since 1998... i did lose some of you for a few months when we moved to WC... but shoot I've posted on a community with most of you for almost half my life... that's a scary thought.

Any interest in changing the look of this board from the CAF default blue?

Here are the choices:

--------------

Curvy Caramel



--------------

Orangina



--------------

Dark Modern



--------------

Should we try one of the three options or keep the default? What do you think.

I like the contrast in dark modern.
