    Post by XachAttack on Mon Apr 01, 2013 11:41 am

    Whenever I type m agic, without the space, this wierd phrase shows up:

    Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations)

    What the heck is going on?

    It's just part of the April Fool's joke. Random people get these put in their messages. I've had about 10 of them already.

    I think there's a list of words that trigger these placements. Let's see what I can come up with:
    casul (Sponsored by Linda's Lip Gloss Galleria) (Sponsored by Linda's Lip Gloss Galleria)
    Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic (Sponsored by Flemmings Magic Shop - 5 New Locations) Shop - 5 New Locations)

    Edit: Aww, none of these trigger it.
    OP
    Spear
    Nerf
    Tryhard

    I'm surprised casul (Sponsored by Linda's Lip Gloss Galleria) usually works.

    Lol, I just realised that everytime you edit a message, you essentially append the sponsor message after the word again. You could edit it an nth amount of times and you'd get an nth amount of sponsor messages.

    They did the same thing last year. It's a creative use of the swear filter. Instead of blocking the word it replaces it.

    Hi folks,

    This is all part of the new sponsorship initiative! The admin team here are the Dark Souls Wiki forums have been affected, just like everyone else by the global financial crisis. These are hard times we live in (although not as hard as those in Lordran!) and we felt that exploring new avenues of funding would be appropriate providing the adds were small, un-intrusive and didn't compromise the posting experience here on the forums. I mean look at it, you can hardly even see the adds! Everyone wins.

    We also felt it was important to have our generous sponsors represented by the community, so the language-filter-tron 9000 has had a couple of tweaks.

    All in all we feel this is an important and bold new direction that we had the 'rare' (geddit, because one of our sponsors serves steaks! ha ha big grin) opportunity to take up, and we are very pleased we did.

    Zechk

    Lol....Renegade, not sure if you're serious (I know Serious is Serious) but they can identify words they consider as swears. So they identified some cultural additions to modify today.

    How about:
    lemon buff
    bieber ring
    fireworks
    op

    Edit: Nope....damn

    Wouldn't typing "Magiç" make an infinite loop everytime you edit because of the Magiç that is added in the sentence between brackets?
