I just got done reading the forum rules and i'm confused as to the actual rules because what is stated in black and white is completely different from what is enforced. stupid (non-swear word for dumb) is blocked. crap (non-swear word for feces) is blocked. so many mundane words are blocked but yet this game is rated T.... for Teenager.....age 13 and up. stupid and crap along with many others are all a regular part of teen vocabulary and in no social setting is considered a swear or curse word. so whats goning ?

    It’s not a part of Star Wars vocabulary though.
  • They do it because they don't want people using those types of words. The non-swear word for ***** matter could be offensive to some people as well as, if not even more so, the use of the word for calling dumb.

    Give me an Old Luke skin, and we will be best friends. He is the only one I plan on buying with real $. :-)

    As far as I know most of these words are forbidden by forum supplier (by default in the settings) and not sure if it even can be changed. Also, moderators can see any censored words and if these words that you mentioned above were used in a good context, then it's okay and they can stay.

    Plus despite the game is rated T (for teenager) users of any age can visit the forum freely, so perhaps this is one of the reasons why these words are censored.

    Makes complete sense.

    Vader's emote has a blocked word in it so yes, it is certainly part of star wars vocabulary

  • Since this seems like the best thread to ask, what does personal photo mean.

    Personal phone means something that would enable a person to identify you or an acquaintance, or your personal information. Also, make sure we can't see your reflection if you take pictures of your computer or tv screen.

    Please PM me the list of words that are filtered and we'll take a look if these really need to be filtered.

    Thanks for flagging :)

    does ***** matter really need to be filtered. Because that is literally the most appropriate version of that body function.
