Question do you think they are keeping only safe chat forever?? share your thoughts!

i think they might first they said "sorry for the inconvience open chat will be temperarly down" now in the paper they say " our safe chat menu gives you alot to say in build-a-bearville" which makes me belive that it is not just temporary it may stay

which in my opinion make babv way less fun

do you think it is staying??

and what is your thoughts on safe chat??? tell me

Maxine said this about it



The chat is not going to be back for a while because people took advantage of the privilege and said bad things.besides 80% of all citizens were only on safe menu chat anyway. We want it to always be safe and fun. Now the "dating" and bad words have stopped. same for mean behavior. we are adding a lot more phrases to the menus and also a shortcut where you can type the words and it picks up the phrase from the menu.

I think that Open Chat will be back someday. It just needs time.
If the BABV people plan to keep the Safe Chat permanently, they will eventually realize that they are practically killing their own site by not offering Open Chat. However, I still think the Open Chat is simply being re-worked to be safer, and the programmers are thinking it is going to take awhile.

(Also, I don't think that having Safe Chat stops the dating. I've still seen people doing it. )

i think they should do this: when a player has been saying bad things or been reported they should be put on safe chat for a week that what they should do

I think they should be put on Safe Chat forever... That would stop them! LOL JK

Also, if 80% of citizens are safe chat anyway, wouldn't it be easy to stop the other 20% from dating and being mean?

From what I saw on a news article online, I think we will be having safe chat for a long time.

yeah its not fun without open chat... you know if people say bad words they should do like they do "make the sentence red" get what i mean? we should have open chat but not be able to say bad words but i am not pleased with safe chat you can't ask for someone to add them and say who you "are" i mean by if you have another server and you can't say that. oh BTW! how are you supposed to say sorry if you hurt someones feelings? say "oops?" that word doesn't sound like much of a sorry. so if you ever meat up with a "real" cybearguide (not the Jr.s the people in the real well the ones who own BABV.) and they have open chat for one day or so tell them to bring it back and give them my idea ok? maybe thanks.
