I don’t seem to receive the nightly emails with updates to Fairy house etc that I used to get on the previous site. Apologies if I’ve missed an announcement about this, is there a way for me to get notifications again? Thank you
Is the swear filter different on this forum? I've noticed a few words that previously would have been starred out have popped in! They are the "milder" words or ones that are just letters in longer words so I wondered if the filter was different or had been mislaid in the move?
Had a look and the swear filter was a feature in the previous software - I think it is possible to instigate a swear filter but would require a bit more work so keen to hear opinions as to whether we need one or not ( fwiw I have received more complaints about the swear filter making some innocuous words hard than we have ever needed to add words to the swear filter or complaints about swear words) Personally I am happy to see how we do without one.
I think that as we are all adults, the swear filter isn't necessary as long as people don't use swear words to insult each other (in which case we probably don't want those people here anyway!). But I know we have strong opinions at both ends of the spectrum for words like c**t - those that think it's the worst word ever and others that think it's a great word.
My opinion is that we leave it without the filter for now and see if it becomes necessary
