Basically, what I mean is there should be something similar to a swear filter for certain words, but those words are picked by the creator of the thread. And only apply to that thread. For an example, the Political debate. The thread-maker could filter out words, because they do not what them to be talked about in their thread. So, say I have a Private, Buddy thread. I don’t want anyone to talk about the election but nobody listened after I asked them to stop, so, I could filter out key words. Such as “Trump, Clinton, debate, LGBT, riot,” etc. Then, when it’s calmed down I can remove those words from the filter. I’m not sure if this would even be possible with ACC’s coding, but for hot topics, such as the election, and others, I feel like this would be really helpful to keep things under control.


I’m not sure if I’m being clear, but if needed, I would love make an example after work.

If you create a PT, you have 100% control of who you invite to it. If people are refusing to follow your rules in your PT (especially a BT), you should lock the thread and start a new one without the people who were causing problems.

I'm not sure if what you are suggesting is possible, but even if it is, it will take a while to code and provides few advantages over simply not inviting people who are known to cause problems.

I like this idea. I know a lot of people probably don't want controversial discussions in their BTs, especially of heated topics like the election. Implementing custom filters could be used to prevent BTs from getting too heated.

While it probably wouldn't be top priority, it would be nice for a custom PT filter to be implemented eventually.

I have friends with different political views, but that does not mean I stop being their friend. I want to have discussions with them, just not about politics.

"While it probably wouldn't be top priority, it would be nice for a custom PT filter to be implemented eventually"
I 100% agree.

I also agree that this would be a great feature to implement, though it shouldn't be the top priority at the moment.

Haha, hey Jason! Yeah, I'm here pretty often. Always trying to help make ACC an even awesomer place!

I also just want to add (something I think we already know, but just in case) that this PT word filter should be an add-on, not a complete word filter. What I mean is that the words in the filter should just be words that are not in the word filter yet, because we don't want people making PTs with word filters that allow the curse words.

I know this is off-topic a little, but I just want to genuinely say it... Just imagine how upset I'd be if ACC filtered out the word 'amiibo'

I think we're on the same page, but I'll make a mock-up of what I mean in a bit.
