Question Rated M for mature.

I was just wondering if it would be ok to amke a server that had M rated material like swears and gore but we would have a notice when you logged on.

would that be ok?

Doesn't Era have that? You can also go on Zone and you'll see people swearing.

Just because you see it, doesn't mean it is allowed. It's not enforced.

In my mind it would be alright as long as you had to click some agreement thing when you login each time, but of course I doubt any of the globals consider that good enough.

There's gore now, so I don't see why that would be a problem. In my opinion curses aren't a problem - it's how people use them... and typically they don't need curses to do what the swear filter is supposed to be protecting.

The players are ridiculously ruthless to one another, and it's really very pathetic.

Swear filters aren't mandatory on servers as of yet but a rated server wouldn't be acceptable as it would break the rules of the Rules of Conduct. It seems to me it would need a revamping of the entire system to allow a server of that nature to be allowed. The gore we have now is hardly gore in comparison to other online games.

Ratings aren't built on comparison. They're built to solid standards. Otherwise, that would mean if the next GTA game has enough gore, it would put a game like Manhunt into the "E" rating.

If servers would be given ratings, Era would definitly not fall into "E". I can't say if I think it's an "M" since I don't play it enough, but I know it would definitly have to be like "T" at least.

I doubt you'll be able to put the M as mature thing, mainly because you'll be forging a rating(ESRB? didn't actually review the content and issue it). Though you can put a little thing that says that it contains mature content.

Lots of servers already have swearing. Personally, I use a filter on all of my servers because I don't like to see people swear. It's really just pathetic.

As for gore ... gonna show a red dot? That will really scare people. I think you'd have a hard time really showing gore on Graal in a way that would not be good for young ones.

And what exactly do you mean by a swear filter? A voluntary clientside filter or a mandatory serverside filter? (This is assuming you are staff who has implemented a system in relation to swearing.)

I hope you're not force-filtering people just because of your own preferences, that would be pathetic.

Copied from the Rules of conduct from the Graalonline website:

Quote:
Chat and Forum
Discussion through onscreen chat, GraalOnline chat, and discussion forums is a part of the game. GraalOnline must not be used, however, to promote competing products or services. Individuals who actively promote other competing products or services within GraalOnline, may be locked out.

Another abuse of chat and forum privileges is when players use abusive language (cursing or threatening language), racial attacks or comments, or sexually explicit comments, either general or specific, when communicating to individual players, in the content of mass messages via the GraalOnline chat system, or via the discussion boards.

The GraalOnline Communications Forum (Message Boards) is used to discuss GraalOnline related content, gameplay, ideas, experiences. Constructive complaints and other healthy criticism that points out ways the game can be improved are welcome. Flame wars, personal attacks on players, and any unfounded criticisms will be removed. Abuses such as these will lead to players being banned from the Communications Forum. GraalOnline staff may lock out such abusive players.

Players may not promote anything sexually explicit, implications of racism, or vulgar online. This includes, but is not limited to, sharing URLs with others to websites that contain profanity, nudity, or anything else that violates the GraalOnline Rules of Conduct.

Players promoting content that is subversive to gameplay, promotes cheating, or any other hacking activities risk immediate ban. GraalOnline will have no tolerance for such activities.
It's nice to see someone actually enforcing this.

The way I see it is... the people who swear a lot are those who fail to respect the English language. Most people who swear are not smart enough to think of the appropriate words to use.

Bleh, it depends on the situation. I only swear when I'm irritated or when I hurt myself to chairs/walls/other painfully hard things, but I like English more then my own language (Dutch).
