Default The problem with chat being restricted.

You guys know how strict it is, you can't say the word oh.
Well I'm just putting it out there that people are making it WORSE by getting around the censor what's already there. Then soon that will be banned too, to the point we might not even have chat anymore. I mean, I see why they rebel against it but it's really just making the situation worse.

Does anyone else feel the same way?

Yep, agreed. It's so frustrating to see which words are being randomly restricted when you try to say a simple sentence -- even if some people find a way to make it rude, it's the people who want to use it legitimately that will pay.

The chat system has always been a problem, hence the reason why we were all given Instant Chat. To this day many people abuse words. I wouldn't be surprised if we were all given Instant Chat back.

Agreed, but rather than limiting the use of words, why not just monitor it more efficiently. I know this would probably take more man power, but there are plenty of people willing to tell on you if you act up, so seems like it wouldn't be that much of a problem reporting the offenders. For those people who want to say something inappropriate, there will always be a way around things, so why make everyone else suffer. Besides, I thought that's why they had the restricted chat den, for younger players?

Here's an idea, why not create a Den that requires proof of age for older players? It would be like the reverse of the restricted chat den. Then you wouldn't have to worry about younger players seeing or hearing something that might be inappropriate. The same rules could apply, you just would have more freedom with the chat because you've proven your age.

Yeah, pretty soon bearville might remove Open Chat. I tried to say " If you wanna joins cheerleading..." but they blocked " if you" and you can't say " join" and what's wrong with saying " oh"?

I guess my mind isn't that trashy either, because I honestly don't see how you could use the word "oh" as anything nasty? Rather be ignorant when it comes to things like this

I agree Molly! It's ridiculous.
People abuse the whole thing, even with restrictions. Today I saw 2 people calling each other "No ds life" *facepalm*

Oh gossh ):
If people are going to try to use the chat in a bad way, they should quit BV and go to another website where they can do all that stuff. They're just making it worse on BV!
