Why people are getting chat banned!

If you've been on the forums this week, you'll know that people are outraged at the chat bans that they have "randomly" gotten. In fact, there are several people complaining that the chat ban should be removed. While I do see their point, uhm, no. SoD is a kid-friendly game that is licenced by Dreamworks. And if they wanted, Dreamworks can and will pull the license to run SoD. Chat bans are meant to keep trouble makers from ruining the game for children. It should be obvious right now, but the game is clearly targeted for Elementary, maybe Middle Schoolers, so removing the chat bans are out of the question. But contacting the admins will most likely help you get the punishment removed from your account, of course that won't exempt you from future punishments if you choose to swear.

 

So why is everyone getting a chat ban to begin with? One word: Symbols. You see, SoD noticed that the game had a problem, and that is where trouble makers would bypass the filter by adding a . between swear words. An example would be if lol was a swear word, the trouble maker would say lo.l, and it would go through. I have a feeling they will fix it, but the reality is that there isn't going to be a perfect swear filter. People will find new ways to break the chat rules. This is the curse that faces many virtual worlds that were made for kids.

The filter punishes those who want to chat but those who have weird intentions always manage to evade the filters and end up being able to swear and share phone numbers anyway. It's not blocking out the people it should.

 

The filters need adjusting. Its not just symbols, because I never do that stuff and get banned regardless. The chat is pretty useless as it is now.

You mean, I got banned

You mean, I got banned because of commas and fullstops?? I am absolutely sure that question marks can be used, and !'s maybe too. Numbers (why??), swear words and several dragon names are also on the ban-list.

You can usually find her on the trainig grounds, in the TRR, fishing by the lake, farming, or maybe in the wilderness admiring sceneries. Nothing very special.

She is a proud elder of the

Her not-so-large and lovely dragon team:

  1. Raincutter. It's actually a deadly nadder, but her name is confusing. She's the head of the family, and one of the most skilled dragons here. She loves battling, but she isn't very good at it. She doesn't like going on stable quests, but she takes the responsibility of doing it.

  2. SkyGlower, a flightmare. The oldest one in here, but he gave up the leadership. LOVES racing, and Fram loves doing it with him.

  3. Groundsplitter (problems with names again), a whispering death. Admires sceneries from the boulder stables, spends time with his sis Rootcutter, hangs out by himself.

  4. Rootcutter, whispering death, Groundsplitter's sis (that's not just my fantasy, they came out of the same bundle of eggs). She has to be doing something all the time. So she's the most often stable quest completer, sometimes she tries to battle with IcyBlue.

  5. IcyBlue, or just Icer, a groncicle. A really tuff and fighty dragon, the main battle dragon in the team. Sometimes he comes on a trip for his home Icestorm Island, so Fram has to mind her business without him.

  6. BasicBrown, a gronckle. The youngest dragon in the team. Not a very active dragon. She loves helping in the farm, she also enjoys going on stable quests with Raincutter and nobody else.

  7. Swamper, a mudracker. A young playful dragon. Seems like he considers SkyGlower his mom... He's the only tidal dragon in the team, and he enjoys is. He just loves playing and getting everything aroud wet.

8. Honeytrap, a sweet death. Though she's young, the has a few unique skills, which are very helphul for everyone. So she is usually also really busy. When she's not, she like to sneak around on the beach and attack unsuspecting people for fun. Nothing dangerous, really!

9. Slicer, a razorwhip. She appears to be not as cute dragon as Windsheare. And she managed somehow to get on the wrong side of everyone. She thinks she's the sharpest and deadliest dragon around, so she shoul be the boss. But everyone respects Raincutter, and the isn't going to pas the leadership. Slicer also thiks she's the fastest dragon, and that freaks SkyGlower out. So there's nothing surprising in finding her paralized at the center of the stables... Of course, they both get a talking-off after thet. But, however, she is a really beautiful dragon at least.

10. Trumphet, a death song. I just couldn't leave the poor little thing out in the vast and unpleasant world... I'm a bit tired of creating stories, okay?

11. Sparky, a grapple grounder. It just arrived today, so no stories yet. And I forgot what color it is, sorry.

 

This siggy will be updated soon. There's going to be a photosession with my beloved dragons.

Its chat bans combined with a guessing game of what you are and are not allowed to say. It’s hard to think around how to explain to somebody in game that you think there is a glitch when you can’t say glitch.
