Lets Put A Stop To It Now!

[Phase 1- Swearing And Sexual Words]

Ill add this along with lots of other ideas to stop this happening again in Future Improvements, I just wanted player support first else things won't be accepted unless they are really good.

Moon-Goddess quit Management of N-Pulse as you all have read (If you haven't then go and check it out) I was quite upset and sickened by her reason to leave. This is a game. A good game. With good players. Good Management's. And good ideas. And the fact that people would Mass Sexual abuse to people is stupid and inhumane. And I would like to quote the following:

Quote:
Source - ''For Parents On Website''

Graal was designed by Linux Cyberjoueurs for online gamers between 12 years old to 65 years young. The concept of Graal is to provide a fun alternative to the proliferation of shooter games available today. Here are some of the features in Graal.
Moon-Goddess falls in the 12-65year old range of people to play this game, so the people who did this stupid act I ask to stop it now or find another game, Moon Goddess had the right to play this game like everyone else currently signed up. So people massing abuse to her are stupid. The fact they did such a thing maybe because they get ''Thrills'' or a ''High'' off doing so. But it is pathetic as just because you don't know someone and may not ever talk/meet them, you shouldn't abuse/insult them. Also the fact these people were probably ages 12-16 as they like the fact they can talk to a woman and threaten and shout abuse at her!

Ive seen a lot of good rules on these Forums. But they are not inforced on Graal as much, mainly they are, but no evidence they did it, while on forums there is the text in front of you, My main point is as people did such a thing IM going to get a lot of support from players (Hopefully) to put a stop to this behavior.

First of all my main worry is how the age group starts at 12 and yet people can swear on Graal, You can't do it on the forums, but you can do it in gameplay, I think that there should be a written in game profanity stopper. So it either blanks it out ****/---- or it doesn't show at all. Anyone who agrees that swearing should be taken out of Graal and in PMs on Graal please vote above! I am aware people can script them with NPC's but I feel it would be better without that and it always built in.

Capitalization, punctuation and spelling out words does help. A filter would be stupid. People would just find new ways to use profanity and the filter would be too full of words to have all of them in there. Try to just have people tone down their profanity a bit.

Who cares if people leave the forums, they are just forums. You can always get their AIM and talk to them there or any of the other chat programs there are out there.

You're forgetting the upper level ages. 12-65.

So, now we have to treat adults like children?

I didnt say they left forums, I said they left graal. And yes there are programs to chat, but they can block people. And on graal you can atleast get to them via on screen.

You cant block the onscreen text, and why should they have to sign off graal. They havent done anything. I regret even starting this post as I knew people would find a way to turn it the other way, people always do with practically every post there is which is a big shame.

I usually don't mind swearing unless it's used in a mean way. Even Stefan says "the S word" or "the A word" if he's tired of something.

I do mind something like "YOU ARE A *F word goes here* ***** YOU *F word goes here* SO GET A *F word goes here* LIFE!!!! *F word goes here*!"
