That's a good idea. I noticed that there is some space for more emotes.

I think it would be good if they maybe added signs as well as emotes.

Like if there were signs that said: "Hi", "Bye", Maybe question marks as well.

These would be very useful for people who have problems with thier chat glitching.

And like you said, I think that the love heart eyes emote should go.

I seriously cannot agree with you guys more.

When I first started spending longer times in-game, I was wondering about this "mating" and "nests" bizz. At first I thought it was harmless, but I've realized how totally inappropiate it can become, keeping in mind that there are younger audiences (even if a part of the younger audiences are the problem itself).  And why should they claim "nests for themselves? Sure, it's fine if it's temporary, but don't go demanding that it's completely yours (don't get me started on that, haha). I, for one, also agree that they should ban "mating", "mat", "mates", or "mate". (Apologies to anyone who uses the terms normally in everyday life, where friend=mate)

 

Now, I think it's just downright creepy.

(Again, apologies to anyone who takes this seriously)

IF it's for dragons it's not

IF it's for dragons it's not inappropiat because it's just dragons having fake eggs so this is why..............

 

 

 

 

 

I PROVE

Just that I let everyone in

Just that I let everyone in my nest (yes I still have one and I'm 13 and my friend The EnderDragon is 19 and has one too)

I never say that somebody is in my nest because I also say I make burrows for my eggs and dragon babies so you won't find me saying that! And I do this cause I'm always boared on this game. I HAVE MY REASONS FOR THE STUPID STUFF I DO!

I completely agree with Aika.

I completely agree with Aika. There are younger audiences that should not be seeing this, such as myself.

 

I found out things like these from the people I USED TO CALL "Friends" (Did you notice the marks? It's called sarcasticness).

 

My USED-TO-BE "friends" knew this when they were younger than me. I didn't even know, they did, and they were younger than me. I didn't even WANT to know!

 

Some of them found out in ways like this.

 

SO, like Ellie said, you definitely have not proved ANYONE wrong... -_-

How can you prove me wrong if you had absolutely nothing to support your argument?

"Mating" in this game--the term and the behavior--should be banned. There's nothing else to it. 

There's youngun's playing this game, who have by no means want to see this type of behavior being played out by other players. Also, there are older audiences who just find these things uncomfortable and disturbing. I find that this is for the benefit of all the players, since the majority rules (and the maturity/appropriate situation) say that it should be taken out.

I haven't been on cept to log

I haven't been on cept to log in and get gems every 5 days. This is just rediculous to happen on a game that's aimed for kids. What I found even weirder was- even without chatting, I actually had someone "crush" on my Viking.. which was really...Awkward for a kid at heart who isn't even looking for a "mate." (it's enough I have a crush on Hiccup but I'm not all...super crazy as if I have no respect for him.. that goes for fictional and real people too...)

Ugh. Hattori, I know what you

Ugh. Hattori, I know what you mean by "Mostly kids". I mean, sure, I'm a kid, but I have NEVER done this. I used to see it all the time, game session after game session. Numbers have seemed to lessen on my servers, but that is not the point! People still do it! It's a kids game, 8 year olds could be playing on the game, and if they see the word "mate" then they could go ask what it means, and it's just completely inappropriate!

 

So, those words should be banned.

 

Numbers are banned because you're not supposed to say your age in public. Same with the names :P

 

You can say the names of places, I don't get that...

 

:P

 

Agree?

JACKSON IS COOLPUNPUNPUN (subject unknown in other words)

lol sometimes I'm having a normal day and while I'm fishing or on a cliff, some random Viking comes up really near me and shows the heart emoticon like they're flirting with me or something and I fly away like a boss

I also saw a Viking named "viking *itch" (i censored the b part cause I don't want to get kicked out of the forums). 

LIKE WHAT

WHY ARE YOU ALLOWED TO NAME YOUR VIKING WITH A BAD WORD

WHAT?! SERIOUSLY?! Right,

WHAT?! SERIOUSLY?!

 

Right, that is just too confusing...

 

WHY IS THIS EVEN HAPPENING?!

 

This certainly needs to be discussed with the admins. Anyone told them yet?

This has happened to me

This has happened to me plenty of times. I practically do the same as you, with a twist:

 

I click on the unsure face about 3 times, then shoot them, then fly off. And when they follow me, I keep flying away.

This person followed me once, so I dived down a cliff, and when I was next to the cliff, I did a swift turn and flew back up, he never found me again...

Some people show the sad face, sure I feel sorry for them, but it just... isn't right...

Ugh >.<

I agree with you guys. This should never, ever be added!

I find it annoying that players shoot me saying: "Get out of my nest!"

I find players askig for mates every day, i find it a bit annoying :/ 

 

I remember one time, somebody visited me and asked if Neon could mate with his dragon. I was just like: "Um....."*slowly walking backwards*

 

I think mostly bored players do this XD

When I'm bored I just Fly/Dive bomb/roleplay (Yep, that's totally normal XD)

 

I still agree that It should be removed and we should't be able to say the word "mate"

I don't think this should be part of the gameplay :/

*flails*

I was on my 'Jarret' account, and this random Viking popped up and showed the hearts icon to me 5 times successively. HOW CREEPED OUT DO YOU WANT ME TO BE?! D: I had to switch MMO off...and put her on Ignore. I feel bad, but seriously.. The only person I'd accept receiving the emote from is... [data expunged]. Muahahaha, only some people know ;P

 

Also, the other day, I just happened to open chat randomly, and someone was asking for a Nightmare mate. *faint* OMG, WAIT. *revives* It was some time ago, but I found a Viking's name with the four-letter F vulgarity in it, and I'm just there like... "That word actually got PASSED?! WHAT?!" *FAINT*

The irritating thing is, if

The irritating thing is, if people are doing this in chat, yet their dragons are on another server, there is no way to track them down and click on them to report them. You have to be on the same server and for once have you chat sync with the server to report someone. 

 

I'd really like chat to be synced up with the servers. 90% of the time I can see somebody and not talk to them, or talk to somebody and never see them. It really makes me frustrated, and I don't see any reason other than bad coding as to why they're separated like this.

Yo, man.

Haha, I too am put off by people who are "looking to mate their dragons".
Like, what even. That's not what this game is about. Not even close, bro. Certain people need to realize that SOD is not a dating game. Neither you, nor your dragon, need to find a boy and/or girl friend here.
 

I understand that people like to role play. But playing the dating game with your dragon is inappropriate. I've also seen players bickering about being cheated on/needing a boyfriend/girlfriend because they're lonely. In my opinion, this kind of talk shouldn't even be allowed. Not only is it as irritating Snotlout on his best day, but it's downright inconsiderate. Younger kids do not need to hear about your pixel-dragon relationship problems.
Knock that off.

  I believe that banning the words:
Mate, Mating, Boyfriend, Girlfriend, and any close variation of those

Would be most benificial to this game.

 

 I saw someone earlier say that we should ban the word 'love' as well.
I disagree.
I compliment people quite a bit, using the words 'love' and 'cute' often. For example:

"Cute outfit!"
"Love your dragon. Nice color choices!"

 

Also, I've come to accept heart faces in a similar manner.

When someone makes a heart face at me, I take it as them complimenting my outfit and/or dragon.

It's sweet.
^_^

 

On the subject of banning, I've had quite a few experiences with people who seem to find ways to bypass the cussing filter. I suggest having a moderator in each area, so that these issues can be quickly dealt with. Until then, I'll be taking screen shots and reporting these people via email. 
#vigilante fo' life
 

One more thing:
The word 'Gronkles' is not allowed in chat.

Lawl.
