What's The Stance on "Foul Language"?


  • Content Creator

    Seen some remarks in chat. Homophobic and racist kinda crap.

    Just wondering what the stance is on something like this: https://i.imgur.com/k4Ym3uD.png

    Pretty curious to see where this community will be going. That hinges on the moderation's stance.

    @Nekrage What you can actually expect from a player whose character is named Caligula... 😬 Anyhow, lets hope that at least most of the inappropriate messages can be eradicated, perhaps auto-censoring system can offer some assistance.



  • Yea he got REAL vulgar for a while.


  • TF#10 - CONSUL

    I prefer a system where anything is allowed, but you have the option to auto-censor words in your own chat and of course, block certain player's messages completely.


  • TF#5 - LEGATE

    @Belligero I kind of agree with you but it seems like an unlikely stance a company would take in 2020, During a free access event these kind of things are going to happen and i doubt they have tons of staff to handle everything

    ... that for the most part he was loved by the masses and pretty much everything people in the future will know about him is written by the sons of his political enemies? πŸ˜›

    PS: Imo chat ban is the best idea in these scenarios.


  • TF#11 - PROCONSUL

    An optional profanity filter is my preference.

    0 censorship = you know what a cesspit some people would turn it into. World of Warcraft Barrens chat is as close as I've got to unregulated chat and that was mostly harmless Chuck Norris jokes and posting the word "anal" or "Harry Potter and the" along with a linkable thing like an achievement or skill.

    Over censorship = people are afraid to chat because there's a too-sensitive chatbot or over-zealous moderator waiting to pounce on anything that they don't like whatever the context (Warframe).


  • Content Creator

    My personal stance is let profanity stay but racism and such should be moderated.


  • Wiki Editor

    @Nekrage Absolutely agree with you on that one. Hate speech has no place in this community.


  • TF#12 - PEOPLE'S HERALD

    @Nekrage @humerus Hate speech does not exist...
    if u have an issue in forum just black list the member.
    i guess in the future there will be option to black list ingame too.


  • TF#12 - PEOPLE'S HERALD

    @grofire Hate speech does not exist? You have got to be kidding. Racism is the epitome of speech with a root in hatred. A player should not have to endure that kind of language in the game. In fact, there is no place for it in the world either. It is a sad individual who has that much hatred in them.


  • TF#2 - MESSENGER

    Hi, great question! I'm #actuallyautistic but also absolutely against censorship. As you can imagine i'm in a minority among both my kind and the neurotypical community πŸ˜…
    The word that i personally find offensive is "retard" - it makes me think about my autistic daughters who are both quite young and although one could argue that autism is retardation of sorts i strongly disagree under mostly all circumstances, i tend to support the notion that it is an allistically designed world that is retarded, frankly 😏

    I am being facetious, of course πŸ˜„ ✌ (its clearly post modernity colliding with rampant Rousseau-ism if you ask me 😝 )


  • TF#12 - PEOPLE'S HERALD

    Some words should just be hard banned, because they take toxic to a whole new level.

    With that said, given that Fractured is going to be full loot PVP, you better have a thick skin.


  • TF#12 - PEOPLE'S HERALD

    @Farlander Hate speech does not exist, only free speech! and the freedom to black list anyone you do not like.

    Yup. I agree 100%.

    I think we have to draw the line somewhere and say "This is fine, but this isn't."

    I would be happy with "Curse all you want, but stay away from the racism crap." I really don't want to see the N word spammed all day. It gets old.

    If we can all agree to that we should be able to coexist enough to kill each other. Lol.

    There will certainly be rules and I assume they'll be similar to those on the forum. With that said, it's not easy to moderate the chat during an open weekend. Sometimes the chat moves so fast that we would need to have moderators monitoring the chat 24/7 to catch it all. I try to monitor the chat as much as possible. If that doesn't work and the chat gets too toxic, we can disable the global chat channel as a last resort.


  • Content Creator

    @Specter Understandable 100%. Please don't take this as me calling you out for a lack of moderation. I don't feel that way at all.

    Just looking for some "ground rules" going forward.

    Appreciate your insight. Also, hit me up if you need an additional mod. I got ya!

    Our terms of service are pretty clear, the content we do not accept is that which

    "violates any third-party right or any intellectual property or proprietary right; (ii) that is unlawful, harassing, abusive, tortious, threatening, harmful, invasive of another’s privacy, vulgar, defamatory, false, intentionally misleading, trade libelous, pornographic, obscene, patently offensive, promotes racism, bigotry, hatred, or physical harm of any kind against any group or individual; (iii) that is harmful to minors in any way; or (iv) that is in violation of any law, regulation, or obligations or restrictions imposed by any third party"

    Our moderation stance will be different on the 3 planets. Arboreus will be strictly moderated, while we'll let cursing and such flow more freely on Tartaros.

    That being said, some things have no place even on Tartaros. Racism, xenophobia and homophobia are clearly such things. The user mentioned by OP has been banned from the open playtest, by the way.

    Also, our community is usually super nice, I've only ever seen this kind of stuff happening during open weekends πŸ™‚
