One of the features for v1.9 is for actions to automatically be taken when posts contain certain words. The goal is to have a better alternative to censoring words.
As a starting point, we need a UI to define and manage this set of words.
Some things to think about:
- There can be many words to add and see, so there need to be ways to bulk add as well as ways to easily add a few words.
- Each item is made up of only two values: the word and the action that will be performed.
- The list can be very long.
- Is it valuable to see the list of words at all, especially if they’re all offensive words? List the words only when requested by the user?
Here’s a rough mash-up of the Settings and Tags UI:
(Ignore the words list… it’s a screenshot of some of Car Talk’s tags.)
Another consideration: this mock-up makes it look like you can add the same word to all three actions. I don’t think it makes sense to allow all these actions to be taken for one word.
