...a word filter taken from 4chan ain't exactly becoming a, hem hem, scary four chans community!
and /hsg/ was a huge part of the early homestuck fandom, let's not forget :^)

Well, desu isn't just a four chan thing. It's japanese for "it is", and it really a cute way to say something, don't you think? <^v^>

Also, I think it's important that all homestuck fans are welcome on the forums, not just one type! Honestly, I think it'd be cool if the forums became a place where fans of all kinds could be welcome to talk how they'd like and share their opinions without having to be afraid of people criticizing them for it. After all, four chan's homestuck general was shut down a long time ago, so this is really the only place they can post too. I think instead of criticizing that difference, we should welcome a variety of different people who have a variety of different opinions and ways of thinking!

I agree! Changing t b h to desu seems like a silly prank and I’m taking it in good humor.

I used it to test the word filter without actually getting in the way of useful words like fuck or shit and then forgot to turn it off. It was the first word filter idea that came to mind that wouldn’t be super disruptive.

Apologies if it caused distress. I can turn it off if people want.
I'm more easily reached at classpectanon#4228 on Discord. I will respond to reports faster there because PHPBB's notification system is borked and doesn't email me when you report things.

i'd rather it be rid of, just because it makes things look a dozen times more obnoxious. if people want to put desu in their own posts theyre free to do it with their keyboards i think

how long has it been on? because if it has been here since day one and we haven't noticed, it's probably harmless enough to keep desu

Plus think of it as an alternative to be less lazy in your writing to be honest.

your signature is correct but only because I have no idea what this even means which makes it a bad take
