This isn't so much a suggestion as it is an issue I ran into with the blocked words censor.

I am doing a music thread over on Current Events and I had an issue with the following links:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ELpmwVQf AGQ&t=0s

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3mbBbFH9f Ag&t=0s

Don't know if anything can be done about it but I figured I would bring it to the staff's attention if they weren't already aware of it.

Judging by where you added the spaces, you probably know why the censor was triggered. :)

In those cases, I'd suggest using a URL shortening service (https://goo.gl for example).

So there isn't a way to add an exception for YouTube links?

Also, would url shorters still embed the video?

The "r-word" filter also screws up any discussion of #76 of the Kansas City Chiefs, for no good reason.

Honestly, GameFAQs should do away with the censor altogether. If the word is used in an offensive context, mod it under another rule; if not, there's no need to restrict it in the first place. Virtually no one is offended by cussing in and of itself anymore.
Proud to be part of the 1% of society that's smart enough to realise Australia is not real.
If the admins can solve the scunthorpe problem, they can solve this as well.

I agree with OP, its annoying I can't post a like of Joseph Joestar saying "Nice!' in response to some news because of link saying f*** without the c in there
