There's a racial slur in there. Don't you mean “he snickered”?
“sniggered” is British, and presumably other Commonwealth countries as well.
Actually, “sniggered” is simply a synonym, and not a Commonwealth-country-specific word.
I expect both forms have some use across the English-speaking world, and of course there is nothing “incorrect” about using another region's word, but sniggered is the more common one here and as I understand snickered is more common in America.

I hear “snickered” more commonly everywhere; even from British people, so I don't see the need to use “sniggered” instead. “Snickered” would be the best use here, as I'm sure some members of the community would be confused as to what “sniggered” means; especially since most people on Scratch seem to be American.

Ah, here's the sticky I need.

In forum posts, it censors my name. A few people, an I, believe it's because of a certain 4 letters in the middle of my username. Since it's run-together and not two seperate words, it makes it look like something it's not…

It doesn't seem to censor it here…

I'm trying to edit my changelog and I typed this: 3/28/17–Changed Cloud Land. I tried multiple times, clicking off the text box multiple times and it seems to think “changed” is a bad word.

There is nothing witty or meaningful in this signature. Have a kitten, and enjoy the rest of your day.

This topic is for reporting problems with the “bad-word detector”. If you are looking for help with a project, please make a new topic over in the “Help With Scripts” section.
I tried putting in a picture of nayan cat in a comment. The other kids did it a few years ago but not the bad- word detector thinks it has bad words… why?

The thing is, that's now considered a form of spam. Characters commonly used in ASCII art have been filtered out if used excessively to prevent that spam. The stuff that was already posted before this was implemented stays, and that's why ASCII art from years ago is still around.

It thinks 8/17–Ch is a banned word in leet. You'll have to reword the change note so it doesn't start with “Changed”. “Made some changes to Cloud Land” might work.

When I tiped in my high score in a game it said that 25 was a bad word. Any reason for this? It has been annoying.

Bear in mind that some words can't be fixed - because they might have multiple meanings- but this is a good idea as I can follow this topic and I'll get a message when there is a filter issue.

Perhaps you could add a few words to explain what the filter is so people aren't confused by this topic?

The filter is a program that looks at comments, studio descriptions, project instructions and so on looking for inappropriate words. Currently, it is not looking at words typed in the forums, which makes this a good place to discuss it. There is a much simpler filter that works in the forums - but it is hard-coded and not easy to change.

The Scratch Wiki has a bit on the filter too: https://wiki.scratch.mit.edu/wiki/Censor


On My Other Account,I Was Trying To do text in notes and credits and i was trying to write: F a v e and i when i wrote f for F a v e it said it was a bad word, i suspect it is thinking i meant the f word when i meant to do spaced text for Fave!

Yup, happened to me b4. I think there is some words/letters that were in a certain formation that caused it to seem vulgar…? I think.

A page of words contains an idea, but an empty page contains millions.

Or space it out. I tried that and it worked.

“3/28/17 – Changed Cloud Land”

should work.

Nope, it's the generalized phone number filter. There are so many projects that project links will now start being blocked by the filter if they begin with common phone numbers such as 142 or, in your case, 145. (Which sometimes have commercial lines)

I tried to post this: “Use (days since 2000) x (86,400,000)” and it returned with the bad word detector?
