simple idea:
clientside chat replacement thats toggleable on the client on or off, search chat through a pool of naughty words and select a random non-offensive word from the bank for that specific word(like the F-bomb would be replaced by like, fudge or something dumb like that) so you ultimately have the option to see people swearing or see the "toned down" version of what people say.

making the game completely censored will alienate a large portion of the players and keep the older community away

I honestly thought Graal was for 13 and olders? I read someone post on runescape about this subject. As my memory serve he was saying "I can't stand curse words, I stand at the bus stop and hear it, it make me sick -blah blah-" yet again another 13+ game. And if you havent heard every curse word there is in the English language than you are Amish. -_-

On the website, it says 12+. In any case, the point is not whether you have or have not heard cussing, or whether it bothers you or not. Cussing doesn't have to be allowed in a game for the game to be enjoyable. I just don't see what the big deal is for it not to be allowed.

I'm personally indifferent unless cussing is excessive.

On the other hand, though, I do believe that everybody could manage to find something more intelligent to say rather than F&*$ all the time. Ultimately, those who do nothing but swear tend to be weak-minded, resentfully classless individuals ... and that's just sad for a variety of reasons. Some people think the "F" word is the standard for communication, and, when these same people are serving my children fast food later in their lives, they better not have the audacity to wonder why.

No but it annoys me when swear filters are so excusive that you can't even say a perfectly sencible sentance without getting the whole thing covered in *'s.

I once played this game where it was so bad that if you just said the word "dog" alone, it would filter it.

Yes, I agree.

I actually kinda like the swear filters that are clever about it, and replace text with text. So "F - - -" becomes "Frell", making "Frelling" and "Mother Freller" still sensible in context, but only if you're old enough to know what the original word was. It COULD make things more Graal-flavored, if Graal had its own (Firefly/Serenity)/Transformers/etc. variations on the language...I still like "Slag" as a multi-use swear word. Or "Monkey" as a "I just dropped a hammer on my foot" interjection, though that's taken on racist connotations when applied to people of certain ethnicities...

This could be a great update, but i think graal will be dead by the time it gets here.
as 90% of classics community is only 13 or 14 years old, the half of them is staff. they all swear like it's normal. if you use such a filter they have no reason to log back on to classic anymore.

good side is that half of staff positions will be open for recruiting again.
wow.

Filtering is no option to educating people why they shouldnt curse.

People will know to verbally hurt people even if bad words are censored out.

Agreed. I don't really feel comfortable with the fact that people like Stryker can read my PMs freely now.

This and the setnick logging system seem completely unnecessary. Swearing and harrassment through nicknames (this never happens) aren't really problems on classic anymore, and I'm confident that GPs can deal with the occasional offenders effectively without this big brother nonsense being implemented.

EDIT: It is interesting that the majority of people in support of this don't even play Classic though! Nanny nation.

Hardcode Graal to automatically filter swear words from any account registered to a user under 13 years of age.

If you're over 13 you're hearing every single swear word in the book 500 times a day at school and with your friends, so Graal is hardly going to be anything worse.

Over 13 there could simply be an on/off function like many games already have. Simple.

Its not recording chat in pm's that I'm aware of, only masses, toalls, onscreen and toguilds. As for nicks the only time those are useful is if someone complains about being harrassed via pm's. It makes it easier to prove or disprove. Or if someone is using a nick to give out inappropriate links.
