Aos chat restricts so many words

Post by QuadrupoleStrat » Fri Aug 28, 2020 1:55 pm

Aos chat restricts so many words.....
It doesn't allow me to continue when there is a single word in the message that is considered a bad word e.g. GallowGlass because it has the word ass in it.
Glass - it restricts because it has the word ass
Bummer - It restricts because it has the word bum
Christ - Is this even a bad word? Player named coder4christ has christ on his/her name.
Badass - Same as first.
Mick - What does that mean ? Lol. There is a player named mickmackmike in Aos.
Maybe we could only restrict specific bad or swear words since they really mess Aos chat with those restrictions.

Haha yeah, we can't even wish our fellow players a merry Christmas!

Tit is another daft one - an English slang word for breast and/or a daft wally - neither one is rude or offensive...but thé letter combination of T I T come up in so many words!

I think Mick is out because it is a slang word for an Irishman (just like Paddy) - again, hardly insulting.

And yet, in one of the campaign missions, someone drops the C*** word in!!!!!

I cant even use the words "malheuresement" or "heuresement" in French (which mean unfortunately and happily) because they contain the scientific word semen!

And that's another problem too - aswell as the lack of an apostrophe ( ' one of those things) - a rather necessary piece of punctuation - Spanish, French and German speakers cannot use ñ, ä, ö, ü, ß, è, é, ê, plus many others which are, for the most part, completely different letters and pronunciations than their unaccented counterparts.

(This might get merged into an old topic of mine, Quaddy, but I thought I might as well add my voice to yours cos it really is a nightmare at times, and if it can be changed, really should be).

Edit: ç is also hugely important in Fench, à aswell.

The aos chat doesn't accept most of the things in the keyboard e.g. /$&%. Which is sad since they make typing more easier. I hope stratego adds them.

How about we only restrict swear,sexual,insulting words? E.g. C*nt. I can't even type gallowglass or Coder4christ! Which is a unit & a player in the game! Well I can via adding periods between the letters but still, it has to be changed.

We should manually unban those words so itll be easier. Here, make a list of the words to be unbanned.
RTS is my life :ugeek:
WCIII WCIIIFT SCI SCII C&C
FPS is also my life :ugeek:
CODII CODMWIII CODBOII CS1.6 CS:GO

Too many.

We should just make them not restricting words like this: Badass, glass, christmas etc. They just ruin the chat by restricting them even if they are seperate and not insulting words. The chat system should only restrict the chat if the words are specific. Like typing F and N word or something.

And if my suggestion is to be added we will need a group of chat moderators consisting of active and nice players to preserve the global chat of aos.

Btw why does the multiplayer chat doesn't assist symbol key things e.g. slash on the chat while on map editor map it is totally available?

I can't remember which one it was, I hammered through a load of campaigns in my early days end of last year to get me hands on the gems, but since daily gift came in (bless it's cotton socks!) I've been MP only.

All I can remember is it was after an in-game trigger - I think you destroy something, and a text box comes up going "arrr you €¥&@$!"

I would rather say it's a bad idea to ban certain sequences of letters which can mean something obscene. Because if person wants to say something rude it will find a way to do it. And these restrictions filter so many usual words like "closer" and "massive", for example, so it doesn't make any sense.
