Lack of interest Flame Watch - "hot" key word detection and reporting function

#1
Behind the scenes on my forum I have had coded a plug in that we call Flame Watch.

Its searches the forum every 2o mins or so. it generates reports (posts) in a hidden sub-forum for moderators eyes only, of instances of "fighting" words.

Moderators tune into that and hunt down and instantly infract people guilty of insulting other members..

Its working very well

Searching every 20 minutes seems like a poor way to do this. Instead, try hooking into the post creation/edit process to search for "fighting words".

I didn't code it - so my terminology might be incorrect. Quite possibly the coder organized it the way you mention. its a busy forum across 3 servers and a load balancer and there is no slow down since we added it and it DOES help us catch a lot of the BADDIES. :D
