Some users understand how to OSRS Gold intentionally bypass filters, making them worthless, and if we create a filter too broad, more posts are filtered than justified. This generates more frustration for users and much more work for us while we'd like to avoid over-moderating. We may look into attempting to revive a filter to get phishing email questions, but that is something for us to discuss in private one of the mod group. The previous filter was unable to achieve what was desired at the time, so it was disabled for now. These posts do discuss an obsession with other filters within our subreddit, therefore a number of them are eliminated for other reasons.
To clarify about the last sentence out of my previous remark, overall, this subreddit is for Runescape's community, and as subreddit mods, we'd rather our existence be minimal. While a few other subreddits may have a highly visible mod presence, that is not something we are considering. If we've got an important message to get across, that is 1 thing, but mod articles from us are very infrequent. In a nutshell we believe the subreddit should be the community's voice, not the community's voice directed by subreddit mods.
I really don't think anybody in any capacity anticipates a plug and play solution nor expects anyone in the mod group to break their back for no pay. Filters require maintenance to properly function, take spam blockers for e-mail; that's decades of work to be certain the Nigerian prince doesn't make it into your own inbox and hell occasionally it doesn't work, occasionally my 2FA winds up in spam, but we don't delete a spam filter. I only wish to explain that I'm not talking you at some presser or some thing just having a conversation.
I believe this only reinforces not only the argument for getting an Automod notify potential new posters of the'gentleman's agreement', if not formally separating them. You have a virtual'desire path' going on here where your neighborhood has made a decision to segregate the content, don't you feel you need to listen to them? These are all growing aches and nothing else which can not be sorted out over the years, its one thing to state that nobody gets the drive or capacity to maintain a filter right now but don't make it out to be an impossible feat. I also feel like I am in a soviet court house and the bailiff was just told to shoot the guy who jaywalked, bro you don't need to delete OSRS or spilled articles in this example just have automod remark on it with information pointing folks in the ideal direction.
Unless we are referring to a filter limiting what can be stated on the subreddit I'm really confused on why anybody would want to skip a filter which provides them with information. Now if supposedlyy'all attempted to knock down some key questions or phrases being chucked around that sub from time to time then yeah it's a'difficulty' (You men wouldn't be the first game sub to possess it, blink twice if Jagex hasy'all of hostage) for you guys but I do not see many people trying to submit"connection - totally no ph15h guiys" or"I feel this is a de h 1 5 h ing attempt men" or"look at this cool shed I received on Buy RuneScape 2007 Gold oh ess are ess" just so they don't have a comment on their post out of a bot.
