Moderating Comments
Join to comment
I looked and couldn't find a topic for this, so I created this one. Sorry if there is already one of them.

I recently commented on a creation and wrote a word that triggered moderation. I sent my comment through, but it deleted the comment.

I searched/studied the MOCpages rules and saw that certain words can make a comment deleted instantly, and in some cases cause an account to be deleted.

I went back and typed another comment and it went through fine.

I was wondering, what are the conditions that an account can be deleted by for making comments?

Is it one bad comment, 10, 1000 bad comments. Or is it constantly making vulgar comments?

I just wanted to know, that is all. Thank you to whoever responds.

Ok, we all accidentally hit the moderation, some words have been added to the list which are used in everyday conversation but aren't actually swear words, simply because "some people" use them as insults.

All occasions where a comment requires moderation are read, they are either deleted or they are passed. If they are passed then no action is taken.

My understanding is, when the comments are read and deleted they are noted if they are considered "really bad" and the individuals placed on a naughty list. Activity after that is looked at very closely and a ban might follow if you repeat the offence often enough.

If they are only mild, and there is no pattern, generally speaking, nothing will happen.

I'd say if it has happened once or twice and the words used weren't "too bad" then you have nothing to worry about.

I'd agree with that. I made a comment praising a MOC, but used the word "kick-_ _ _"

It was deleted immediately. I shouldn't geet an account deleted for an innocent gesture like that should I?

No you'll be fine. Just try not to use words that you think might need moderation like the one you used above. As long as you are not actually offensive the moderator will just pass the comment through the net.

Thanks. I'm sure I'll be fine, I re-did the comment anyway. Thanks for the help.

Why did my comment go into moderation? I wrote, "Nice fig! -LB Jr."

What is wrong with that? :)

Well, did you reply to someone? It will still take what they said and flag it. If you said that on somebody's creation, then that's just weird.

Nope, I didn't reply to anyone.

I've seen some MOCs with worse language than that. As the others have stated, I wouldn't use that kind of language, for some reason it allows it in a MOC. I guess because of the PG warning.

Might have been the capital "LB" or the "Jr." Certainly nothing wrong with that, but the system will flag text that it doesn't recognize. That would be my guess.

Ah, okay. The weird thing is a write "LB Jr." at the end of nearly all my comments, and this is only the second time a comment which had no bad words in it was moderated.

I've had it, I just wrote a comment in a group I run and got no messages.

Two options:

Improve manual moderation or get rid of it all together, its created too many problems.

I think removing it all together could result in more issues. So I think MOCpages should improve it.

I have a little question about the manual moderation.

I'm an admin for a contest, and another admin had started a "smack talk" thread. It was getting boring, so I joined. I got the message that comment went to moderation, but I never got the message to approve it.

Since "smack talk" is meant to be not taken seriously, can comments that don't go into manual moderation (and get the moderation message) get picked it by the mods or get deleted without anyone seeing them?

I think they just get deleted, but I'm honestly not sure.

Seriously Kyle if you are deliberately using vocabulary which is going into either manual or automatic moderation, then you are breaking the rules. It makes no difference if it is intended as a joke or not, that kind of language needs to be avoided, this isn't the right forum for it. We all occasionally say something by accident we don't realise is in the lists, but when you are "Smack talking" you aren't doing anything "BY ACCIDENT".

Any group I'm modding would have that kind of conversation locked and those commenting in it warned, you want to do that, do it elsewhere.

As for stuff going into moderation for the group mods to agree it. If it isn't appearing then it has DEFINITELY gone for the website mods (chris, etc) to deal with, and they will take note of both context and the words used. They may see the funny side and let you/your group member off and let it pass, but personally I'd prefer not to have to go there (that's just me it isn't a rule or anything).

end of the day, use your common sense. We all make the odd slip, but when we start deliberately pushing the boundaries, we know we are breaking the rules and should expect reprisals.

I agree with you Andros, this isn't the website for that sort of language.

I'm not meaning to complain, but I made two comments in the past few days that are currently in moderation.

The first was: "I agree with the guy below me. :) -LB Jr."

The second is: "I like the presentation. -LB Jr."

I don't see anything wrong with those comments. ;-) Thanks.

Whoa, I think he's referring to this: http://www.mocpages.com/group.php/20567.

And people are starting to get really gnarly in the Smack thread. It wasn't Kyle's idea. it's pretty terrible.
