…how does that solve the issue

A signature is a small piece of text that is attached to your posts. In it, you can enter just about anything you like. Perhaps you would like to enter your favourite quote or your star sign. It's up to you! In your signature you can use BBCode if it is allowed in this particular forum. You can see the features that are allowed/enabled listed below whenever you edit your signature.

you'd need to make like 90000 for it to get past the censor.
Maybe even 900000000 because some phone numbers are really long

If they're gonna keep that phone number censor in place, the least they should do is to find a way to skip project IDs that are 10 or 11 digits long and move on to 12 digits so that users can still share their projects in comments without the project ID getting censored.

when I receive [ newProjectId v]
if <<(lastProjectId) < [1000000000]> or <(lastProjectId) > [99999999999]>> then
change [lastProjectId v] by (1)
else
change [lastProjectId v] by (99000000001)

end

The problem is that after that there are a TON of other blocked numbers. A lot of different countries have a lot of different ways of writing phone numbers, so it can be hard to find an amount of digits that isn't blocked

I'm pretty sure that the phone number censor only censors 10-or-11-digit-long numbers, unless I'm missing something important.

I would suggest binary if the for the limit of 500 characters didn't exist.

I know I'm late to discussing this, but as far as I've seen, links when Scratch was in it's 1.4 days were in this format, but using the ID numbers in the URL that they use today.

-snip-.
For example, in Poland, the numbers are all +48 000 000 000
With the 0s being the number and we can just write 000 000 000…

And I noticed that the censor detects 0000000000 but who has a number like THAT?

when green flag clicked
say [I don't know what to put in the signature]

My idea: Always have 8 or 9 random numbers!

Not sure what you mean here, but it won't work because we've already used all of the 8 digit URLs and will soon have used all of the 9 digit ones too.

As far as I know, phone numbers can't start with a 0 (in the US, at least).
I also don't think phone numbers can be all the same number, so..

Wow, I never thought of this…

Yeah, this will probably end up becoming a serious problem in the near future.

Oh my god. This could happen with studios, too!
And forum posts, but that doesn't seem like much of a problem.

Well i had a super simple idea that would make a Base64 project ID system (the way YouTube does it) viable:

When the project ID is generated, pass it through the swear filter, and if it's bad, generate a different one.

nobody cares about (Windows) Me…

Do you use Forkphorus on a regular basis? Try using TurboWarp instead - a new project from the creator of Forkphorus that combines Forkphorus with the Scratch editor.

Let's try hexadecimal except it gets retried every time it filters.
Although if we get a ten digit hexadecimal string without letters, it still could be a problem so encode it again.
e.g.
155885897 -> 313535383835383937 or 94AA149 depending on what way.


Actually no, I have a better idea.
Base 26 with retries.
155885897 -> MCCFKK
It will only be applied if it senses that the project id will be greater than 10, so that there are no problems of previous projects having problems.
