admin edit: Done. Will go live next update
please filter chats for racism in any language. those terms are available in the public domain, to incorporate into any API or call or subroutine. i just was playing and one player called another a n****r !?!?!?!?
i cant believe this wouldn't be filtered. code review?
They actually have a filter implemented, it's just implemented extremely poorly. Their censor appears to use exact string-matching instead of string contains or regular expressions, so you can't type "F**ker" but you can type "_F**ker" and it will go through.It's likely that whatever variant of the racist slur you saw isn't in their blacklist, because maintaining a blacklist with exact string-matching is impossible.
Just left a game with an asshole with the screen name of "N*****KILLER" - please ban people from having screen names like that and rescind their accounts.
+1, I've also added a screenshot of racist comments I've seen. BAN all racist players!
Some of it is just trolls, but plenty of it is racist, extremely sexual, homophobic, comments about children, etc., Or require people to have registered, even for some free level, to be allowed to use game or lobby chat, then they can have the privilege removed. Use community moderators to share the workload.
While I certainly stand with you, I'm not sure how they could do this without moderating every single game. I've previously suggested a word filter which they have implemented far too heavy handed.You could do community moderation where people downvote a room? But that could lead to unintended consequences...
This goes to the feature request about being able to vote someone out of game (or lobby) for abusive language.

Please add some kind of reporting feature in the main chat room before the game is started. A user was being a racist troll and using the n word with the r at the end, and this disturbed myself and several other players.
Oh my goodness that's terrible! People can be nasty sometimes! I am definitely giving you my vote on that one.
This is unfortunately STILL HAPPENING. why are there room names such as "blacks not welcome"???? WTF?
