Naughty URL?!?!?

Competitions

I'm trying to post a competition but keep getting the message 'no naughty URLs allowed'

Its on the Heatworld website which is connected to Heat magazine, nothing naughty about that!

http://winit.heatworld.com/

Any suggestions?

What do you think of this?

I've had that. I tried to post a DVD Bundle competition with Beauty and the Dirt which is just a blog site and the DVDs were Woody Harleson. Nothing 'naughty'. I have raised it.

I think their algorithm is too sensitive and it just bounces back words that it considers rude.

Would be nice if they offered an option to have it checked and not just disallow straight away!

Hey :slight_smile: Sorry the competition got blocked! You did the right thing posting about it here - I've just removed it from the blocked/banned list of sites so it should now be shareable :thumbsup:

We have a big ol' list of sites that some kind boffin put together of naughty websites - unfortunately there are sometimes some odd entries (like this one!) where we need to manually go in and remove them.

Jaycee5 was it your post that went into moderation or did it get blocked before you were able to share it? If the latter it might be another site we need to remove from the block list!

It got blocked before I could share it. A red note came up saying it was a naughty URL. That one has expired now but they do have quite a few. I sent an email and did have an acknowledgment but heard nothing further.

Jaycee5 Thanks for letting me know :slight_smile: I've found the site you're talking about and removed it from the blocked list now :thumbsup: Apologies it wasn't done before - we're still learning how best to handle all the emails and messages we get as LD gets bigger - always room for improvement!

Hiya, I've had that a couple of times with some URLs. I can't remember off the top of my head what they were, but I do remember wondering what was so rude about them!!

Haha yeah no doubt they were perfectly legit URLs! Just whoever made the list of "naughty" URLs was a little sensitive perhaps :grin:

If it happens again please let us know as we'll get it sorted :thumbsup:

I'm using this thread to tag Kelsey to say that Curvy Kate is on the blocked list.
