Apparently my issue is opposite, people complaining about explicit songs getting through,mine are being ruined.  This is an issues that has been happening more and more.  I'm at the point of getting annoyed.  Not every song being censored, randomly and some songs it's ok to sing about "fucking" as long as it's not followed by the"ho".  Eminem's drug balled should be removed,if the name of song gets skipped out, what's the point.  I'm thinking it's not a straight censorship, someone is picking and choosing what can be heard and what's not socially acceptable.  Hope to hear back with an answer on how to fix.  Screenshot of my settings but apparently only for props.

Hi @t03kn33 and welcome to our community! 

I understand your issue right here. And it's a good idea to post this subject in the ideas or feedback section. Maybe other people face the same problem and can vote this idea up to a new improvement in the app!

 

I don't know either if Deezer has a team specifically for explicit content or if it's arranged in a central database... Do the same issues occur in other streaming services (if you used others before)? @Freezer you know any of this? 

 

I'm actually curious about this subject. Keep us posted :)

I am sorry about this issue.

It hasn’t crossed my mind before as it shouldn’t be a problem.

You don’t have explicit off, you get what you asked. Deezer does not have a team selecting channels or creating content or “flow” for them. The job does algorithm. Unfortunately it can work this way: to play censored version of the song.  The best way is to skip it as fast as possible on FLOW or ban it.

Eventually it will start playing the explicit version, I believe.

Thank you for posting feedback, I think they will use it for improvement.

I am sorry to go, to enjoy my well-prepared green tea with croissant and toasts watching Bear Grylls of the day from Viaplay I just bought. Joel McHale In Arizona Slot Canyons is the episode of that.

We're making large improvements to this in the upcoming months @t03kn33 you should keep an eye to check it out for yourself :relaxed:

What you've noticed is unfortunately an issue we've spotted here in the community a couple of weeks ago too. Content is labelled as explicit by the labels and that's the info we've got from them - which not always is right.

Stay tuned for more updates, I'll take care of your feedback and in the meantime, have a nice weekend!
