Auto-Moderation Incoming! ๐Ÿค–

Notice

Greetings, Mooties! We want to let you know about an important upcoming change to Moot that we hope will drastically improve your experience. We are going to start experimenting with AUTOMATED MODERATION! ย  We already have a small form of automated moderation in the form of a content blacklist. This means certain words are forbidden and if you try to comment or post these words, your post is blocked. ย  Now, we're expanding the automated moderation features to include IMAGES as well! ย  Initially, the new automated moderation will apply only to Direct Messages and Chat Rooms as we fine-tune the feature. Soon, we hope to start expanding it to Lounges one at a time (Off Topic, we're looking at you! ๐Ÿ‘€) ย  Please keep in mind this is an AUTOMATED system. Your personal conversations are PRIVATE and they will remain PRIVATE. Also, we hope you will let us know how the system seems to be working. For example, if you try to share a meme that doesn't break the Content Policy but it gets rejected let us know! ย  How do you feel about this change? Talk to us in the comments!

    what words are not allowed?

  • ArcticBravo verified LV.27 Elite Four Sep 19, 2020, 07:51 AM

    I believe it's mainly hateful slurs (homophobic, racial, sexist etc.), but there's probably a couple other words too.

  • HAD3S DC LV.30 Sharpshooter Sep 19, 2020, 07:51 AM

    Roight. makes sense.

  • VRolook LV.25 Happy 2020! Sep 19, 2020, 06:20 AM

    i dont think im gonna be a fan of this one

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 06:18 AM

    Your new robot overlords are here, Mooties.

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 06:42 AM

    I got questions

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 08:09 AM

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 02:10 PM

    do you really agree with this?

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 09:08 PM

    Auto moderation for certain aspects of Moot could be a big help to Mods, and very easily stop those who spam and scam. Of course thereโ€™s no guarantee on the impact until we can see some of the results, but Iโ€™m always open to new stuff.

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 09:11 PM

    I disagree that fun posts gets taken down

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 09:15 PM

    No, thatโ€™s not how it works for this type of thing. Itโ€™s preventative. Itโ€™ll block things that appear to be inappropriate from being posted in the first place, like it already does for certain phrases or words, and the roll-out will be slower so that things can be tested.

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 09:17 PM

    ObliviousRexย  it's not gonna work if mooters find multiple ways to posts stuff with different titles and different stuff just saying

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 09:17 PM

    ObliviousRexย  I tested it out

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 09:20 PM

    Thatโ€™s what spammers and scammers already do, but itโ€™ll have to be a work in progress. If you see stuff getting blocked from posting, probably contact Mods or Admin. At very least, but we can report things that are being wrongfully blocked.

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 09:22 PM

    ObliviousRexย  which mod who actually responds whenever I need 1?

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 09:24 PM

    You can always send stuff to me, of course. It always just depends whoโ€™s active at a given time.

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 09:25 PM

    ObliviousRexย  most mods and admins only respond to other mooters your the only one actually helping me out and who listen to me

  • ObliviousRex verified LV.36 Assassin Sep 19, 2020, 10:05 PM

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 10:06 PM

    ObliviousRexย  ๐Ÿ˜Š thanks for helping me and being there for me and you do a awesome job being a mod

    Monetizing?

  • Stealthyviper LV.21 Insomniac Sep 19, 2020, 06:19 AM

    only use it for the bit.ly links

  • MrWallManMain verified LV.33 Good Leader Sep 19, 2020, 08:17 AM

    Thatโ€˜s the idea. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

  • Stealthyviper LV.21 Insomniac Sep 19, 2020, 08:32 AM

    good because there so stupid

  • The_Real_llama LV.23 Epic Sep 21, 2020, 12:22 AM

    they're*

  • ShadeHibrid LV.19 Sage Sep 19, 2020, 06:20 AM

    Fack NO

  • VeryBerryMan LV.23 The Best Sep 19, 2020, 06:45 AM

    I hope this doesn't lead to content censorship, I understand that you want to stop people from like saying the n-word or something, but I hope this doesn't become like a youtube situation

  • SuperSumo LV.19 Clearly Hacking Sep 19, 2020, 07:06 AM

    Same. If you give people power like that they just get carried away with it.

  • VeryBerryMan LV.23 The Best Sep 19, 2020, 07:10 AM

    yeah, hopefully that doesn't happen, but I'm kinda expecting it to happen

  • SuperSumo LV.19 Clearly Hacking Sep 19, 2020, 07:15 AM

    Well we can hope ig not like theres much we can do about it unless... ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ถ

  • _Th3G4sp3r_ LV.5 Lurker Sep 20, 2020, 12:35 AM

    Really cool

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 06:18 AM

    I regret asking this already ๐Ÿ˜’
    how could I be that dumb requesting it in the first place

  • Stealthyviper LV.21 Insomniac Sep 19, 2020, 06:19 AM

    oh godddd

  • Devil<3 verified LV.29 Xbox Sep 19, 2020, 06:20 AM

    No moot no

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.29 Billy Sep 19, 2020, 06:26 AM

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 06:40 AM

    noooo

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.29 Billy Sep 19, 2020, 07:08 AM

    what's so bad about it?

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 07:10 AM

    it's because I prefer saying stuff as it is and mods are wasting their time on something like this and I admit I was dumb enough to send this idea to a mod now I completely regret it

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 07:14 AM

    do you understand what I'm saying?

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.29 Billy Sep 19, 2020, 07:14 AM

    No I really dont...

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 07:15 AM

    all I'm saying is I regret giving this idea to a mod I was just joking around and they just took it and I hate they are gonna bring moot to a horrible place

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.29 Billy Sep 19, 2020, 07:20 AM

    Well if someone shares a nude in a dm then they can't, making it so we dont see that stuff anymore

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 07:21 AM

    Cow Boy Billyย  I understand that but what really annoys me that we can't no longer post funny stuff on off topic without anyone or mods feeling offended

  • Cow Boy Billy LV.29 Billy Sep 19, 2020, 07:23 AM

    How so?

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 07:23 AM

    Cow Boy Billyย  nvm gn I'm gonna go sleep now

  • Brian G verified Admin Sep 22, 2020, 03:58 AM

    We LOVE listening to our community for ideas. But this new feature of auto-moderation did not come from a user suggestion.

  • NO NAME verified Sep 19, 2020, 06:29 AM

    this is so bad
