Hello again everyone,
It's been a while since the last update on the website, and although not much has been going on behind the scenes due to me spending most my time preparing for my exams (starting in . days - it's come so quickly), there has been a small tweak to the chat filter that I feel is worth noting.
Up until now, the chat filter has only really been detecting English swear words, however it has come to my attention that other languages (primarily Dutch) are also used in chat, and so this is the basis of the update. From now, some basic swear words in common other languages will be blocked, and any bypasses will be blocked too.
When implimenting the rules, I checked the chat logs since August 2015 (when my records started) to check for any words containing parts of swear words, and excluded these from the filter to exclude as many false-positives as I could. However, as always, it won't be perfect, so please report any issues that you find straight to me so that they can be dealt with.
Hopefully we can role out a load more improvements over the coming months post my exams!
