I'm afraid the Dark Lord wouldn't be too happy about the former assumptions about what the image could have been, but glad we solved it now.
Merlin's pants! I NEVER would have guessed that's what that was! Now that you told me, of course I can see it.... however, I still think it looks like... well, you know.

Thanks for the clarification, in any case!

Re: Moderation of threads

Not only did I think it looked like Merlin's - or Voldemort's pants - raised on a flagpole - but I was really curious as to what the red shiny things were...

Re: Moderation of threads

I'm still glad we solved the mystery about Voldemort's pants-like eyes. But let us come back on topic now, please. Any questions regarding threads getting lost in the moderator's queue or similar issues can be addressed here.

No, post count is and has always been on in the DH discussion area.

Re: Moderation of threads

It might be you checked when you posted in DH Floursih&Blotts, where the post count - right as in the Hogwarts Flourish&Blotts area - if off.

Re: Moderation of threads

Hi,

I started a thread to thank Jo and actually did a search for duplicates. I posted it when the search came back empty. The very next day I discovered an earlier thank you thread! So, my thanks to whomever it was that deleted my thread, but moved my comments to the existing previous thread. That was classy!

If it were me I would put Molly's word in as "b1tch," and Ron's as b2stard." That's okay, right?

If your post and the comments were moved into the existing thread, the threads were merged. This means that your thread was not deleted.

If it were me I'd let the autocensor do its job and assume people can figure out the quote by the context.

I was actually warned one day for using the b-word "*****" because I was quoting something about Molly killing Bellatrix.

But I had tried to edit the word so it wouldn't offend anyone, and replaced some letters with stars. I rarely even think about the autocensor and don't use many censored words.

Gertiekeddle thought I was trying to get around the autocensor. But we worked it out. I thought it was funny that so many words are allowed (damn, hell, etc), but not that one from the canon.

However, since it's your show, I just spell it now and let the autocensor bleep it out.

Yeah. I don't think I've ever even used an autocensor word here. There's really no need to.

Re: Moderation of threads

That's true actually. If one tries to make a swear word 'more visible' in a post by adding a letter or number to avoid the evading of autocensor or by adding a letter to the evaded word, we ask them not to do it again. If it happens again, one indeed may get warned.

For the two named words I believe it is like Jessica said - we all will recognize them when they're just typed out and so appear in asterisks.

You'll never have any problems if you just type all words out. Censored words just won't appear and you don't have to worry if it is one of the censored ones or not.

But will the censored word just not appear, or will it be replaced by a more approriate word? This what's confusing me.

Looks like this: "Not my daughter, *****!"

Ok, thanks!

I have another question (I'm full of them!): There used to be a thread called Spanish, where you could discuss the language. I loved it, because I usually don't get the chance to hablar espanol with other people (speak Spanish).
However, I recently did a search, and I couldn't find this thread. Has it been deleted, or am I not looking in the right places? If it has been deleted, why?
Thank you!

You're welcome!

Do you look out for Spanish?
