    i mean theres no need to swear in the public chat. youre not going to die if you arent gonna say a bad word in chat. if you really need to say it then just talk to them on discord or something.

    It's not even about saying bad words from my point of view. It's about being able to be rude without any repercussions. It's about being able to state your opinion no matter how offensive or controversial it is. It's about having a sense of freedom through speech.

    yea its about being able to be free to do stuff that staff constantly whines about being harassment, also it is mainly about older people wanting to unwind and not be constrained by the minority most of the people on atlas are above 13 years old. I knew almost every swear word at like 7 so stop coddling the 8 year olds there are like 5-10 of em on the server we dont need to suck their thumbs

    I dont understand why players who have been on the server for less time then say windows or hell even me think they have a better grasp on the player base. Im not insulting you im just saying the 7-8 months ive played on this server I know for a fact the majority is old enough to swear the minority is young cunts

    the staff team which made the rules definetly knows what theyre doing by making the chat PG. Either way, Ruinscraft isnt the place to argue about controversial stuff. if you really need to, theres dedicated discord servers, and maybe you can even find a minecraft server dedicated to that. The server is just a towny server.

    If it's just a 'towny server', why are you here? I know why i'm here, what about you? Also Ruinscraft is the best place to argue about controversial stuff since there is a wide variety of different people on here and you can get a wide variety of responses, opinions and conversations on here, this is what I love about this community, but the fact that there isn't any kind of chat for the older players who don't want to abide by the frankly childish rules is a problem.

    It would highly decrease the number of mutes and warns for bypass, because the majority of people who bypass just want to swear in some way, which is normal cause its just a word in someone's vocabulary don't get all antiswear bs, so a chat to be able to would be 10x better.

    I absolutely support this plan because I've been many years having to tolerate 10 year olds believing they have some sort of moral superiority in the chat and correcting me or anyone else for "bypassing the filter" it is absolutely ridiculous and obnoxious and all it does is scaring away potentially new people who could join the server. It is completely dissuasive.

    Locking this thread because we're not going to do this, sorry.

    Ruinscraft is for all players. While I am personally not bothered by profanity, many players are. Parents often are too. There's no practical way to enforce who is allowed to use the restricted chat. Even if we did this, we'd still have to draw the line somewhere on what is acceptable behavior. It doesn't make sense to allow some profanity but not other profanity, so it's best to just draw the line where we have. And honestly it's not that hard to just not swear.

    In all truth, we are nowhere nearly as strict when it comes to local chat or direct messages. Just use common sense don't do this in public chat or harass people. It's really that easy.
