Make it possible to flag all links for moderator review instead of replacing them with '***'
Currently the only possibility for managing links is to disable them all together. This replaces them with '***' in chat for everyone but the sender. Add an alternative to make AutoModerator hold all links for review instead so mods can allow them on a case to case basis. If no mod is there the result would be the same, no links in chat.
@deejay4am no it wouldn't work. Manual blocked words do not enter into automod review system, it will refuse all the messages without the mods knowing someone tried to send a link. The idea is to allow the viewers to send links on chat but being hold by the automod for a moderator to allow or deny the link.
Automod Blocked Terms allows wildcards using the "*" (asterisk) character. Would blocking "http*://*.*" to send comments to the automod work? Note that you do not have to have automod on at all to use Blocked Terms.
This seems so easy to do. Why can't we have more control like this?
Yip. This is a must.
That's exactly why I came here. I'm surprised that it didn't get implemented yet since it just seems like a function that just should exist. Also I'd like to simply have a greylist where you can add terms that get held back instead of immediately blocked or allowed.
I agree. I've spoken about this with a handful of others in my group. This would be very helpful to weed out the garbage accounts / links. We could assume a random person passing by is posting a link or maybe they accidentally added a period somewhere, which turned it into a link.
