Can someone help me out?

I recently made submitted an entry and I was wondering if anyone could give me some suggestions/tips on how to make the entry better. Any extra information that I didn’t add in the entry would also be helpful. Thanks!

Here is the link to the entry:

For starters, I would change the image to “Censored” or something along those lines, slap a NSFW on there due to language, and link to some threads where word filter is excessively used.

Thanks for the suggestions! I do currently have two links for archived threads that the filter is used, and I have marked the entry NSFW. I also changed the picture to “Censored” like suggested. The previous picture I had was the best picture I could find that had an example of one of the word filters that was in the required format for KYM, but I didn’t feel like it was the best possible picture, and I like your idea for the picture more anyways, haha. Thank you for your help!

Maybe try italicizing or blackening phrases that would get filtered:
Like, if the number “7” would become “over 9000” then maybe write it like this:
7: over 9000
7: over 9000
Just to make it more clear and easy to read.

Thanks for getting this going. I think it could use some formatting help -- maybe a two-column table or something. I’ll try to play with it in a bit.

When I see the entry, all I see is just a massive list and that is not very attractive to the average user. Now what you could do is research which word filter was the first one used on 4chan, provide two or three more popular examples with photographic evidence of use, then direct people to the lurkmore wiki entry for the full list instead. You may also want to see if you can dig up quotes/posts from moot regarding the word filters as well.

Thanks to everyone for the help! I am currently in the process of making the entry a lot more organized an appealing to the eye, and everyone’s suggestions have been invaluable. Thanks again for all of the help, I really appreciate it!

Sorry guys, but can someone explain to me how to post a picture onto an entry? Haha, I’m a little new here, so I’m still trying to learn how to use this site. :p

Usually it would be < img src=“here goes the image url” > without the spaces. If you want it to be more convenient, use it like this: !imageurl!
So, say I want this image:http://i0.kym-cdn.com/featured_items/icons/carousel/000/000/109/my-little-pony-newsfeed.jpg?1313042986


Either way will give me the same result:


If you wish to change the size, then you must use the < img > one. Add width=“#” or height=“#” to it.
Like this: < img src=“http://i0.kym-cdn.com/featured_items/icons/carousel/000/000/109/my-little-pony-newsfeed.jpg?1313042986” width=“30”>
will become like this

For anyone reading this thread, if you are posting a large image in an entry it is good practice using the html tags so you can size down the height/width. Images within entries shouldn’t be any wider than 450-500 pixels. What you can also do is wrap < a href > tags linking to the full image page around the < img > tags so that when someone clicks on the image they can see it full size, it helps for things like comics or things with small text.

Sweetie Belle Derelle is a really good example of good basic image placement and html tag use.

Thanks for helping me out with posting pictures! I currently have pictures posted on the entry, and the entry is BY FAR more organized now than it was when I first posted it. Is there anything else that I could do to help make the entry better?

When you can, please put both the “width” value and the “height” value in img embeds that are being resized. It saves on page load time for the entry. Alternatively you can switch out the “newsfeed” part of the url for “small” if you want to embed without having to add a width value.

will become like this

pro-tip: use <code> tags for typing code. (e.g. <img src="http://i0.kym-cdn.com/featured_items/icons/carousel/000/000/109/my-little-pony-newsfeed.jpg?1313042986" width="30">)
