Blacklist REGEX Support
I believe that Twitch should add REGEX support for Automod "Blocked words and phrases". This would be a very helpful feature for chat moderation since a lot of users can easily get past the blocked term by intentionally misspelling a word. This would also allow streamers to enforce English only characters in chat. I'm aware that twitch allows using the "*" wildcard but in many instances this is simply not enough.
Currently, the list of blocked terms and phrases found at https://dashboard.twitch.tv/u/[CHANNEL]/settings/moderation/blocked-terms only matches directly against the input. This means that in order to ban variations of a word, one would have to input many millions of phrases through the API even for a single word (as shown here: https://twitter.com/thomsimonson/status/1429472208506822659).
Expand this page to allow soft matching & regex-based matching (advanced, potentially restrict API only) entries.
Soft-matching would match every entry in the list not by it's exact character, but any latin variations/etc. - so banning "information" (example) would also match "înfórmàtion" etc.
Regex-based matching would match via regular expressions (no further explanation needed).
Love the auto mod . But being a lead mod for Papa_pixels, we are a multi cultural channel having only English would really not work well for our channel. Auto mod should be multi cultural
I have a bot that can handle this. I've been using it to block our favorite "Wanna be famous" spam. It can target messages and delete them rather than clearing the chat of all a particular user's message, too, incase of a false positive and keeps a log.
Their bot interface is IRC and it's plaintext and easy to use.
You can sort of do this... Already if you ban f.e an excessive user of HeyGuys (like 3 times right after each other)
If you disallow HeyGuys HeyGuys HeyGuys
Every message containing HeyGuys three or more times right after each other (even at the end of the message) it is blocked...
So it is for anything you could blacklist...
