    SimpleCensor - A simple, powerful chat censoring system:
    Version: v0.2.3
    Tested Builds: B544,B560,B588,B612,B677,B684,B714,B740,B766,B798,B803,B818,B860,B1060

    SimpleCensor is a stand-alone censor aiming to fix common problems with existing censors. Many censors are very easily fooled by inserting spaces, continuing a word, or using caps. SimpleCensor is not.


    • SimpleCensor censors words you put in config, replacing them with whatever char you tell it to
    • Censors with spaces/other chars separating: If "word" should be censored, "wo rd" or "wo.rd" will not sneak past! Results in "** **" and "**.**" respectively.
    • Censored words don't need to be a separate, verbatim word: If "word" should be censored, "wording" will be censored. Results in "****ing"
    • Not fooled by caps: "word" and "WORD" will be censored the same!

    Umm...I don't need to update since it still works. I have changed OP to reflect that. Nothing changed in the chat event and being moved to inactive for that is pretty silly...

    How about applying the same word checks, but for signs?

    It was intended as a chat censor, but I suppose the functionality could be extended to signs.

    Also, why the hell is this still marked as inactive? It works perfectly fine with the latest build.

    The letter "a" and words ending with an "a" are coming up censored.

    Post your config?

    Found the problem. Apparently, you can't have "a$$" as a censored word without it blocking the letter "a."

    Yeah, because of the way it censors to not be tricked by other characters in the middle is by first removing them, censoring words, then putting them back in their correct locations, so I guess that is an unforeseen consequence of that.

    Another problem is if someone says certain words/phrases it'll censor. Example: "class", "assignment", "has some" - the obvious word being censored.

    Well yeah--but that would be a problem with any censor that tries to censor things and isn't looking for discrete words(for example: the old Runescape censor).

    How difficult would it be to replace the censored word with another word from a list? For example the config might look like this:
    #for each censored word, provide a list of replacements
    #censored words with no replacements will use the default char
    char: '#'

    Not too difficult.

    Once I have more time on my hands I will start adding some of these suggestions. Finals week is no fun.

    Download the .jar from this thread and do not use any sort of auto-downloader, it messes the download up.

    Also, make sure you save the jar file, not extract it.

    Weird, I am not given a config file.. Even when I extract the jar file.. :confused:

    tee jay

    You don't extract the jar put it in your plugins and let it run. A config file will be generated for you.

    I have here the most comprehensive banned word list ever made. However, it WILL NOT work with this system. Why? It's attached.

    You are trying to use characters like '*' and ';' and '.' in you list of words to censor, which get removed from a sentence as the plugin ignores non-alphanum character in order to accomplish "Censors with spaces/other chars separating: If "word" should be censored, "wo rd" or "wo.rd" will not sneak past!"

    Thank you for this plugin. It would be even better if you could make it so it blocks out swears ON SIGNS.
    Many of my players leave very mean signs :mad:

    Sorry is this has already been mentioned, but can this plugin censor words with just another word, regardless of length?
  21. Offline


    Excellent! Just the thing I needed for that one player who just can't shut up... If he starts getting around this, then a ban would be in order...

    You forgot a couple words, just to say. I don't really wanna say them as I do not cuss, but you forgot the cuss word for donkey, you forgot damn, and wh****. If you could add those please that'd be awesome!

    VGFreak, my list is not comprehensive, you can add them yourself. That is the point of having a config file and not hard-coding them.

    I do not understand how to use it. Like how do i add words to it and do i extract the Zip File? Or do i just through it in the plugin folder

    I have this on Funky Town the #4 on mcserverlist!
    Could you add an option to kick people who do this 3 times?
  26. Offline

    tee jay

    There is no zip file, no extraction to be done. You would simply edit the config.yml and reload.

    Neat plugin - installing now.

    Is this a static link that can be used for CraftBukkitUpToDate?

    if yes, then I'll notify CButD's dev, and get you added to the list.
    if no, please make it one.

    Does this plugin work with CB 860? or do I have to wait for an update?
  29. Offline

    tee jay

    The "latest" link is static, unless I ever choose to reorganize.

    Also, this should be working with the latest, I will verify this later.
