How about a compromise ....
Make it so you can turn the filter on and off for yourself. So that if someone doesn't care to see the curse words they can leave it on.
So like the curse words will be turned into *'s Rather than show up. So like
If someone says "You're a Bitch!" ... for someone that has the filter on it'll show "You're a *****!" Or you can just have it not show up at all for them.
Filter being on of course would be the default setting. That way no one can get upset about seeing bad language because they turned the filter off in the first place.
This would get all the players that don't want to be .... "Offended" taken care of and those that don't want to talk like they are in the 60's, Taken care of at the same time...
I think that's a good and a fair for everyone right? I mean it will work for everyone and benefit everyone.
1danny and PrayciousAnjel agree with me if you look at the old thread.
I think this idea would benefit all of us.
Your filter doesn't suck ....Its actually one of the best filters I've come across. The thing is though Adults that DO play your game and older teens don't want to be filtered ... You should give them a choice if they want bad language to show up or not, on their screens.
I'm saying don't change the filter just make it so that people have a choice. It took me some time to really think of this idea. And I don't know why I didn't think of it sooner for you. Really think about this one Falacy.
