You: But then if everyone turned it on at the same time, the server would lag to death.
Me: ...isn't that what it's doing now, Everyone has it turned on?

Maybe if it recorded multiple instances of the same people - all 20 people in level 14 turning it on and recording 20 instances each of the 19 other people each swearing - that could be a problem...

I thought you meant recording all chat.
Anyways, it's much much much simpler just to have it on all the time, and shouldn't lag the server at all.

I should probably clarify this.

Personally, I don't care if you swear in messages to other player as long as your both happy for that to happen. The reason this was introduced was that before we would get a complaint about swearing, but have no evidence to go with it. Because of this, lot of people were reporting fellow players just to get them in trouble, often when they had not sworn at all. With things recorded, we can easily verify any claims, which just helps us from wrongly warning people. We are not going to troll through the history just to catch everyone who ever swore, it's only there as an aid for when its required. Anyway, in most cases players are not getting jailed for swearing unless it's very severe and persistent. In that case they are fully aware of what they are doing and will have had warnings (both informal and formal) before hand.

I should probably also point out that theres been quite an increase in vulgar mass messages over the last year or two, something that is preventing a lot of people from enjoying mass messages. I just wish people would have a little more thought about what they are massing at times, as Graal is a game for all ages.

Hope that clears thing up. You are welcome to ask me more about it in-game if you wish.

Considering at the end of the day, they are just words, words that people have been told that they are "bad".

I can't believe people actually cry over such little things. I would hate to see what they would be like in person.

The mass messages is why I was glad to see this implimented. I agree with you in saying it doesn't matter what people say in private PM's, as long as the other person doesn't mind, but like you, I wish people would show a little restraint in public/mass messages. Not everyone wants to read that stuff.

Thought:
There should be a seperate category for Persistent Messages. Instead of getting the same mass several times because that one guy wants to make sure everyone hears him asking where he get ying-yang in box, send a Persistent message and it's "stickied".
Also makes it easier for the GPs to figure out who's sending them, since it'll be there for a while if they're abusing it.

People who don't want to see abusive language should not have to put people on ignore just so they don't see it. There should be a filter built into the client or something, so that it is used on all of Graal, and not just playerworlds who chose to use it.

they used to have a filter a long long time ago in a galaxy far far away/when there was only like 3 servers. I remember because when i used to cuss all the time it used to say (YOU CAN NOT CURSE ON YADA YADA) something like that it'd block out the whooole message. I know they did, even on the text just in toalls n stuff. BUT ignoring isnt that bad of an idea when i wasnt staff it came in handy, now that im not staff again, it damn sure comes in handy.
