Hey everyone! As mentioned in our 2.2 update notes, we'll be implementing a chat feature that you can use to talk to other players for our next update. Chat is pretty basic at the moment, but we'll be adding tons of more features to it in future updates. One of the things that we're missing at the moment is robust moderation and reporting features. Does this mean you can get away with being terrible in community Chat rooms? Absolutely not, and the punishment will be severe. If you see someone who is verbally abusing another player, or yourself, please: - TAKE A SCREENSHOT of the abuse immediately. - Make sure that the Chat channel number is visible in the screenshot so that we know where the message was sent. - Record the time that the message was sent, including your time zone. - Send all of this information, including the screenshot, to email@example.com and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Example: Hello, xX:.DeAThKiLLerNiiNja::.Xx said "If you think BrainFreeze is better than armed forces you should just fuci ng kill yourself you stupid peice of sh1t ret@rd." at 6:35PM, EST, in Chat room #4, here is the screenshot! CHAT RULES All of the rules for this forum, which are found here, apply to the in-game Chat as well. Here's the important section: Defamation or personal attacks Threats of bodily harm Sexual harassment (of any gender) Attacks on gender, race, religion, or any other self-identification Badgering or trolling While we have implemented our first pass at a profanity filter, it's not perfect. Attempting to bypass the profanity filter, especially for the purposes of harassing another player, will almost certainly lead to your account being punished. We are cultivating a friendly and helpful community, and so far you have all been extremely amazing in helping us achieve this goal. We don't expect to have too many bad apples that we'll need to respond to, but if you are caught breaking Chat rules, you can expect... PUNISHMENT We will be taking these Chat rules extremely seriously, and we won't tolerate the harassment of other players. If you are caught breaking these rules... You can have your Chat privileges revoked temporarily, or permanently. You can be temporarily suspended from the game at the login screen. You can have your account permanently banned. If you feel that you were wrongfully punished, you can also reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll be happy to investigate further. If you have any questions, I'll be more than happy to answer them here!
