You may have noticed our in game chat filter has recently been getting some upgrades, and is now even automatically warning people when they try saying something they shouldn't. I am just writing this post to inform you of a few things about the filter:
- There is a chance it incorrectly warns you. If you were warned for something that you don't think you should have been warned for, please reply to this thread on the website and tell me what you typed in chat so I can take a look into things.
- The message telling you bypassing the filter will result in more serious punishments that you see after you enter something the filter doesn't like is telling the truth. Yesterday I gave out a 24 hour temp mute and a 10 hour temp ban to 2 people who decided after the server told them not to bypass the filter they would.
- The more times you bypass the filter, the longer the punishment will be. Whilst it may only be a 24 hour temp mute to start with, you may end up permenantly muted if you continue to bypass the filter - remember being muted will also prevent you messaging and mailing people on the server.
- Just because you think you've managed to outsmart the filter now, it doesn't mean it will stay that way. I'll let you know this - the filter is still being worked on, and any time it is bypassed, we add more variations similar to what was typed in chat to the denied list. This means that by thinking actually making it more likely for your message to be blocked by trying to bypass the filter.
I also want to apologise for the lack of updates on the server, however once my exams are over (near the end of June) we'll me making a lot of huge changes and releasing some more gamemodes.
