We knew that sustaining the unique character of Urban Dictionary would need big modifications.
Here’s exactly exactly what we’ve changed, and everything we have actuallyn’t changed, thus far.
Definitions are no longer moderated by volunteers. A definition was published when a majority of volunteer moderators decided it was worth publishing under the old system. We appreciate our volunteer moderators’ work through the years. With time, this method had become dominated with a noisy minority whom published abusive definitions and didn’t publish the nutrients.
We updated our general public content tips, and content that is detailed, to simplify what’s okay on Urban Dictionary. Generally speaking, a meaning that describes an unpleasant or violent term is ok, however a meaning that endorses or promotes an offensive or violent term just isn’t fine.
We redeveloped our moderation system. Our moderation that is own team product reviews all newly-submitted and flagged definitions, and rejects definitions that violate our content instructions. It, and our moderation team will review it quickly if you see a definition that violates our content guidelines, please flag.
