So I know what you're thinking "This another person complaining about how bad and laggy the chat is" Nope. That's not what I'm doing. I'm here to say a few things.

 

 This is a kids game guys! That's why I'll be telling you about a few things you should refrain from doing in the chat.

 

1. Cussing.

I have seen many people using anywere from mild (things like dang and gosh, stuff I wont be using but is kid friendly) to full on bad langauge (the F-word, and other ones that I'm sure you guys can figure out) That shouldn't be happening. And if you guys say that kids shouldn't be looking at the chat, this game is meant for kids so... that doesn't work.

 

2. Talking or Miming Inappropiate Actions.

Ya'll know what I mean. No talking about doing the do with someone or talking about someones body. It's all nasty. And Although I'll feal really bad for you if somthing happend against your will, kids don't need to know that. Even more so when you are describing it to someone. Please maybe find an island with little to no people if you want to talk to your friends about somthing tragic like that. But there's also some of you that will be talking about inappropiate things just for the "fun" of it. That is not tolerable anywere.

 

3.  Gossip

Don't be talking about players behind there back. It's just rude.

 

4. Bullying 

I see this one the least. But all the same, don't do it.

 

It's not that hard. the last two are just to be polite. in short, here's some guidlines everyone should follow while using the chat. There's no nead to make it unpleasent or an unsafe environment for anyone. Maybe this was already a thread so maybe I made a useless thread, maybe I didn't. Tell me if you guys think anything should be added or anything taken away. 

.................................

Although the chat is really bad.

These are really good points and I wholeheartedly agree that these things should be followed to help keep the chat friendly and safe for people of all ages. The only thing I have to add is that going to an island/place with little to no people to discuss such things as adult topics and personal information(which is something I've seen people wanting to do before) won't work because the different places in game don't have their own chat servers. For example, you and a friend could be on Hobblegrunt Island with no other people around but someone on a different island, say for example, the Training Grounds can see what you and your friend are talking about. That's why you should always be careful with what you say because regardless of if there are others around or not, anyone can see what you say.

Looking for a clan? Check out the Isle of Gazoo Clan Recruitment thread to see if Isle of Gazoo is right for you. If you're interested in joining, let me know even if all the spots in the clan are full. I might be able to find a spot for you. If you put in a join request in game and you don't reply on the Recruitment thread, if you could please put a brief message stating you've seen the Recruitment thread on the forum instead of the standard "Hi. Please let me join your clan." that would be greatly appreciated. :)

The greatest treasures are not gold,

nor jewels, nor works of art.

They cannot be held in your hands-

They're held within your heart.

For worldly things will fade away

As seasons come and go.

But the treasure of true friendship

Will never lose its glow.

(Poem from the Disney movie Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure)

About Me:

 

The first and most important thing you should know about me is that I'm one of Jehovah's Witnesses. I enjoy studying the Bible and learning from it. I live by Bible standards and strive to apply Bible principles in my life everyday. Of course, I'm not perfect and would never claim to be. However, when I make a mistake I do my best to learn from it and then do my best not to repeat it. I apologize when neccessary and accept correction where it's needed. I happily talk about my religion and beliefs with others but I don't force it on them. If they aren't interested or tell me they don't want to talk about it, I respect that.

For more information on Jehovah's Witnesses, for answers to your Bible-based questions, or for information on a varity of topics, some of which  include: animals, countries, how to deal with bullies, how to have a happy family life, how to make real friends, and depression, please visit jw.org.

 

 

Favorite Colors: Purple and Pink

 

Favorite Food: Pizza, Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches and almost anything Chocolate (I say almost anything because there are some things chocolate I don't like. For example chocolate covered cherries)

 

Favorite Music: Country, Pop, and Disney Songs

 

Favorite Seasons: Spring and Summer

 

Favorite HTTYD Characters: Hiccup, Toothless, Astrid, and Tuffnut

 

Favorite Things To Do: read, sing, listen to music, play computer games, video games, board games, card games, watch tv/movies, and spend time with my mom and sister

Yeah, the easist way to chat

Yeah, the easist way to chat with your friend is to open up some sort of hangout program and use that to talk. at least, in my opion.

Thank you! If people sees this, I would be glad. Seriously, I saw a person typing 'd.u.m.b' in the chat once or twice(or more).

If they are censord on Forums, (which I don't know if they are, I haven't written 'em here before) then they're probably swear words. Just because a show uses them doesn't mean they arn't swear words. Although I do see where you're coming from. I count them as swearing, maybe you don't but isn't it better for everyone if we avoid using them? Maybe a parent doesn't want their kid to hear/see those words and then we've just shown them. Thus making the game less kid friendly. Plus if you look up a list of swear words I'm 99% sure those two will be on the list. But the B word is as you said, for sure a swear word. By the way sorry if I'm rambling, I didn't mean to XD Hopfully this didn't sound mean... it wasn't inteded to be :)

In answer to the words in question: Yes, they are cuss words. As Maz said, just because a certain show/movie you watch uses them, that doesn't mean they aren't cuss words. I hope this answers your question and clears things up for you. :)

The rules of conduct cover inappropriate language so I wouldn't call that etiquette. More like a hard rule.

True, but a lot of people don't seem to follow it. Etiquette is, in short, being polite. So I think it still falls into that category. But I could be wrong.

 

I mean I guess I could have labeled it "How to follow the rules in the chat" but that sounds rude and I rather not do that. But I do see where you're coming from.

There wouldn't be a problem

There wouldn't be a problem if these were the only things we couldn't say but this game is banning phrases a normal human being would say in its every day life!!

Like come on guys!!
I feel that SoD is more of a kindergarten than an actual game!

Yeah, we all know. If they found a way to ban all of these and nothing else it would be great. But I don't think they intend to fix it anytime soon so the least we can do is keep the chat nice so that maybe at some point they'll change it.  

I mean every now and then I see what you mean but the demographic is for ages 9-12 (at least to HTTYD wiki) and so the younger things make sence. But I do wish they added a few things for people even a little older. Mostly as I know people who play range anywere from 8-maybe even 30+! I don't know everyones ages but I know that I'm above the age range and I can still enjoy the game. So it can't be that childish.  Although I disagree, I can sorta see where you're coming from.
