Changes to the image comment quality filter (aka: your comments no longer get rejected)

More or less exactly how I described here.

To reiterate:

  • All comments are now accepted by the site.
  • The algorithm for determining whether a comment falls below the quality threshold hasn't changed.
  • When you post a comment, there is a delay. If your comment is above the threshold, then after this delay the image is bumped to the front page and notifications are sent out. If your comment is below the threshold, these things don't happen.
  • Low quality comments are hidden by default. Above each thread, if there is at least one comment hidden, you will see a link to show all the hidden comments. (Your own comments are always shown to you by default.)

My goal with this change is to make the filter more user friendly while keeping the spam/noise from low quality comments to a minimum.

Sounds good i have been commenting way less. because i don't like it when my comments get rejected. this system is much better i will comment more now but i will try to keep them decent.

I don't know if this is a good idea, at the end it is same situation like before just hidden and the stupid/spam commenters won.

So if you make a comment and it is below the threshold, do you get notified when someone makes another comment (whether it is above or below the threshold)? Presumably not.

You do get notified. It's just that other people (before you) don't get notified about your comment.

By the way, you can subscribe to an image without leaving a comment by pressing the "subscribe" button (next to the report button).

Approximately how long is this delay?

EDIT: It seems to be about 15 minutes, give or take.

EDIT EDIT: Confirmed. The delay is exactly 15 minutes.

It could be a bug, but I received an image comment notification but no comment was displayed when I checked the link. This could be due to the new "delay" you mentioned.

Also, this comment was apparently flagged by the filter, as I received no notification for it:

Musclewomanlove

10 minutes ago

This woman's size, definition, and strength are world class.

I should have, since the comment came after I had posted a comment of my own, and so I was automatically subscribed to that image's comment notifications.

I see nothing wrong with that comment, however... and as others have pointed out through several comment reports, other, much more egregious comments are "slipping through the cracks."

EDIT: I see... so in this case the notification came several minutes later. I was able to view the comment several minutes before I received the notification for it.

It has a big issue with people complementing a woman's strength. i guess that is just as bad as making obscene innuendos. because it's shmoe behavior and not serious enough.

Dec 17, 2022 - permalink

Sometimes I would not even call it complementing but just plain exaggerating and fantasizing.

Now whenever I hear the word I think of some whiner protesting how good and innocent he is. I'm talking about stuff like "she must be deceptively strong". I mean, why? What makes you (whoever makes those comments) think that? And why deceptively? Why not just strong? And why even that? Bodybuilders aren't strength athletes even half the time. I would take honest obscenity over dishonest sucking up any day.

Yes, the delay is 15 minutes. Arguably this is too long, and I should shorten it.

EDIT: I see... so in this case the notification came several minutes later. I was able to view the comment several minutes before I received the notification for it.

I should put in logic that prevents a notification from being sent to anyone who has left a comment on that image after the time of the notifying comment.

Edit: I fixed it

Also, while musclewomanlove's comment quoted above did not get hit by the filter, generally the answer to "Why did my comment get filtered while this almost identical other comment did not?" is that you have made many similar comments recently, while the other user has not.
