Client Side No-Swear filter

by Evergreen » Post

The topic name says all. The reason I want this is to avoid conflicts about whether swearing is allowed or not on a server. This way, people can swear all they want, and there won't need to be any arguments about it. What do you think? Is it practical? Please leave a post stating what you think. Thanks for your time!

Client side doesnt make any sense. One could easy use a client that has this feature disabled.

Client side meaning that the server doesn't have to have the (in this case, the no swear filter) mod installed. Maybe add something to the options or something.

Still makes no sense, everyone can go into the source and disable it

I guess it would have to be a mod on the server then. It is doable through mod probably, with a command that turns it on and off for certain players.

I guess there are already mods for that.

Why does client side make no sense? I assume Evergreen means on the receiving side and PilzAdam on the sending side. Of course the latter can be easily circumvented. But if the filtering is on the receiving side, players that don't want to see swear words can enable the filter while others who don't care can keep it disabled. Seems like a fine concept to me.

wait, wasn't this my idea?
I have stopped playing minetest, and may not come back to it again. I would like to thank everyone that made the amazing time I had playing it. This account is not in use anymore, and the email has been linked to a unused account. If any administrator reading this has time, feel free to delete my account. Thank you very much for the great experience.

Sounds like a good solution for the problem of some young players on Redcrabs server. In another game, we experimented with a filter that changed undesired language into lines from poems.
A list of my mods can be found here.

I had this idea quite a while ago, just didn't post a topic about it.

Yeah, I was looking into this a while back as well.

I totally agree with the idea, but wasn't certain how to get it in the game.

I was glancing all over the web for some OpenSource stuff that we could use, because I thought it'd be easier than trying to code it myself.

I used to use a Greasemonkey Firefox userscript called JMaxxz vulgar word blocker

Code: Select all

http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/2287
that was pretty effective. You could add to the list the words you wanted blocked, and their replacement, which was pretty nice.

I also had a proxy long ago that did a similar thing, back in the days of Win95

Code: Select all

http://www.proxomitron.info/
some of the sites I glanced at to see if I could figure it out were these

Code: Select all

Maybe these links will help in making one. Thanks.
