Report / appeal text censorship issues here

I tried to upload a pot of honey and became three stars as if pot is a bad word? I realize it is slang for a drug (which is as legal as beer in some places, so if it should even be censored is another debate) but it is also the typical name for a type of container? I think someone went a little to crazy with the censoring? Confused.

It was downloaded from common list, no words added.

While we are at it, would "weed" be ok too? Weeds are just a type of unwanted plant in a garden. Not sure why it is on the list either. I know it is also slang, but it also is a common term for a type of plant and the chemicals that kill it (weed killer) etc.

Hi, I will remove it. Not sure who did list, just tried to avoid repetitive work.
If you have any other more sophisticated , please share it, I will replace it

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

Full list found at this location may be more robust, https://www.freewebheaders.com/full-lis … by-google/
Even with this list though there is bound to be the odd word that people of this site might find restrictive, or the occassional word may slip through. If nothing else, it's a starting point, something to built on over time.

A quick look at this and I found god, stroke, hell so this too would defo need to be checked to make sure it's suitible prior to use.

You might even want to combine both lists, as I see some words not present in both, If I get a mo I will go through both thoroughly.

Done, in your inbox.

In regards to this one:
https://freesvg.org/scary-bloody-human- … ctor-image
would it be possible to get bloody removed from censored word list too? It's a useful adjective.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

https://freesvg.org/puss-in-boots the word "puss" was overlooked, could you please remove from censorship as it has multiple uses. Not sure if this file is copywrite infringement, as original is a characture created by dreamworks by the looks of it. If it's not a like for like copy then maybe "cat in boots" would be more appropriate so it bares no relationship to the dreamworks character.

Maybe an idea to add a function to the report button for any further text censorship issues, as mentioned the odd one will crop up from time to time.

Also just noticed only image title appears to be censored, description is not.

I suggest we continue to use this thread started by J4P4N to report issues until button available.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

rob_s, puss in boots is a traditional name for that character: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puss_in_Boots nothing to do with the pixar movie, so no copyright. We dont need to add too many buttons, once we got the list sorted out there would be no need for a button.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

J4P4N, I stand corrected in this instance you are probably correct. I checked the meta data and found it was created at more or less the same time as the movie, so I figured their was some connection file created: 2011-07-28T21:29:07 the movie was release on 9 December 2011, coincidence purhaps, I doubt it, but I will give you and the original author the benefit of the doubt either way there is probably no danger of copywrite infringement on this ocassion.

As for the addition function to the report button this is just a suggestion, your entitled to express your own oppinion as is anyone else but purhaps you should consider not using the word "we" as I don't believe you speak for everyone, the site can only improve through users contributing idea's, some will make the cut, others won't, but repeatedly criticising someones idea's only serves to discourage them from making suggestions in the first place.

I was just thinking of convenience for both the user of the site, and admin. As, as you will appreciate, not all users who are registered on the site are registered on the forum, so by not giving them the ability to report such issues your basically forcing them to register on the forum and generate a post, which is less than convenient for the average user, I would suspect rather than reporting they would instead choose to ignore it.

The list you speak of has been sorted out to an extent, but will constantly evolves as does language along with profanity, so words will need added or retracted as time goes by.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

At https://freesvg.org/nazi-skinhead the title is censored. While I see the point I don't think it should be censored in this case.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

Uh oh. This one was censored too.
https://freesvg.org/american-gay-pride
In the 21st century censoring gay pride is a bit too old fashioned, what the heck.
Have the developers abandoned this thread? Haven't seen any movement to fix these issues. yikes

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

J4p4n, all are in agreement with you, I realise it may be inconvenient, but please be patient, Boris who is one of the lead developers has already stated the list needs to be revised so it is on their to do list, there is precisely 1595 words and phrases that need to be gone through so it will take a little time.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

gay and poop deleted. checked other words in the list, all seem to be profane enough to remain censored. If anyone sees anything else please report here.

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

The amount of innocent words on that list just because of possible slang is really odd. For example, facial hair is censored?
https://freesvg.org/hristo-botev
maybe best to just censor some major swear words and stop with this odd endless censorship list thing

Re: Report / appeal text censorship issues here

not sure whether the word Nazi should be censored, I realise according to wikipedia it originated as an insult, but I think in this context it is being used to describe a specific ideology, I can see it may cause offence so purhaps the word nazi should be reinstated but this particular image only available to registered users. anyone else have a opinion on the subject?

Also may I add, I don't think it' is a problem to add / remove the occasional block word, this would take significantly less effort than creating a new blocklist from scratch, but at the same time a blocklist that only effects tags and title, is pretty much useless, as anything can be added to description or comment in the future.
