Disabling word censors by forum or category

Post by Shanti »

I'm sure this is something simple and I can't find it because I'm not totally familiar with the 3.0 ACP yet, but can anyone direct me on the way to disable the word censor in specific forums? Is it possible to disable it for an entire category at once?

Thanks! :)

Does anyone have any information on this? Am I mistaken that the word censor can be applied to some forums but not all?

I don't think I've ever had a post go completely unanswered before...I won't top this again if I still don't get a reply to this post, but this is really disheartening. :(

As far as I know, there is no way. It is a board-wide setting, which users can disable board-wide in their Profiles. To do otherwise would require a MOD.

Is there a way to make the Word Censor ignore certain words when creating links?

We use our word censor to correct romanization of Chinese names. So we automatically change names like Chengchi into it's proper Hanyu Pinyin spelling (Zhengzhi). However, since the word censor also affects links, people will not be able to reach websites like www.chengchi.com.tw (just an example) or en.wikipedia.com/wiki/chengchi (a better example)

Our website is based in and on Taiwan, where standard romanization has only recently become government policy. This policy adopts Hanyu Pinyin, which was originally developed in Mainland China and (some would argue) was blocked from use in Taiwan for political reasons. Indeed, the previous government went so far as to commission a competitive Chinese romanization system called Tongyang Pinyin

Since there was no standard romanization in Taiwan until recently, the spelling of Chinese words tends to be colorful and myriad, and ultimately a havoc for when giving directions to someone. My partner actually met with the country manager for Google Taiwan and suggested that Google Maps finally standardize on Hanyu Pinyin.

We actually do not use the word censor for censorship, we use it for proper spelling :!:
