Anti-yelling feature

Post by GFex on October 3rd 2009, 6:19 pm

I don't know about you but when somebody keeps posting in all capitals it really pees me off. Could we possibly get an anti-yelling feature installed on our forums to prevent this?

well...
capitals are not only used to yell..
BUT also to highlight some important part of a post
(like i did right now)
i wouldnt think that a feature could possibly differ between yelling and purposely set caps

The feature only edits a post which are all in capitals so what you posted would be fine but if it was something like

"YES I LIKE YOUR GRAPHICS, I THINK THEY'RE COOL"

then it would put that in lowercase.

Not really necessary, and low on priority...

I voted no, for the reason above (low priority) but also because this isn't likely to be such a major issue that you cannot manually edit the offending posts.

A feature to do an occasional moderators job is not necessary Wink

Have to say i voted no on this one.. As with matt "a to do" as far as moderators go. Like on my forum, its the moderators job to view post and if in caps too much edit them out.. Some times I have myself made a post ALL in caps to make a point. I would be upset if every time i did this the system changed it on me.

1. Impossible to implement (tell us how you would think this is possible?!?!)
2. You employ moderators for these purposes
3. This is a personal thing
it really pees me off.
so that would differ among all users, therefore making it a low priority suggestion.

4. Voted No.

Well, I don't think it is impossible to implement, because I have seen it on another free forum host Wink

It's not impossible, it will be coded similarly to the Word sensor.

Invisionfree used to have it before Zetaboards, but I am not sure if they still do.

I used to have forums on there and distinctly remember it being a feature you could turn off/on from within admin panel.

Is it just me, or can we already do this on our forums, huhohi

It's called "Word Censoring"...

Just go into your administration panel, and navigate to this below :

ACP=>General Tab=>Censoring=>word censoring=>Add new word=>Replace CAPES with normal "common letters" and hit the submit button, bye

I believe vBulletin has a "Caps Block" function. I voted yes. Its rather easy to implement and while I personally disagree with it, the forum makers should have the option to use it.

@Master Marc: But wouldn`t that mean to have to replace every single CAPS word with its equivalent in "normal"? I might be confused/wrong.

If you REALLY don't want caps on your forum at all you can just word censor A-Z separately using their lower case forms. So its technically possible, just requires some work.

There are some problems with that. First off, its tedious work. A simple function would make all our lives easier. Second, if you do this, then users won`t be able to use MAYUS at the beginning of a sentence or while typing a name/country (example). So, what would be interesting to implement is a feature that blocks mayus in a word when this word has more than one letter in mayus. This way, users would be able to post with Mayus beginning sentences and yet not be annoyed by BIG SENTENCES IN CAPS. Of course, I do realize that to do all this is time consuming and hey, its not of triple high priority or anything like that.

Voted no, I think this would be a very useless and annoying feature.

What happens if someone asks:

"What is the name of Lupe Fiasco's next album?"

And I respond "LASERS", then my post gets edited? Changing it to Lasers or lasers would be incorrect because acronyms should have every letter capitalized.
