    Hi I think that this censorship is BS, bcs u can not use many words and want to censor other words, you've even checked out what some of those words? Most of the users here are just here to put a language other words, mostly trying to censor words that are close to another thing the he thought. (and sorry for the english not main language)

    It would be nice if the censorship filter could be improved for name creation as well. I tried to make a character named Cassius, but can't because it contains ass. This is a bit frustrating because if someone really wanted to use 'ass' in a sexual or derogatory manner in a character name, they could just make it âss or áss, etc, because those combinations do not trigger the censorship filter. All the current filter does is prevent people from having clean looking names that happen to contain combinations of letters that could in certain circumstances be derogatory.

    I expect the programmers do something along the lines of the following: They take an input string, change all the characters to lower case, remove all the spaces, then search through the string for combinations of letters, this leads to censorship of things that should not be censored, for example if I said "the gorilla is the stronger ape". It would censor "stronge* ***" because it thinks I typed rape, this is because it doesn't see that these are separate words, all it see's is a string 'thegorillaisthestrongerape'. In fact, if you type "aosdaisojdrapetheoerwe" you would get "aosdaisojd****theoerwe", because the programmers are lazy and use an instr function to search for censored words, instead of parsing the input string properly and examining each word independently.

    Personally, i'd probably parse the string into a dynamic array using the space character as a delimiter, and run a 'for' loop that scans each string in the array (each word of the sentence) independently, it's more elegant, efficient and prevents unnecessary censorship.

    This seems like a lot of trouble to be honest. Can't they just add a toggle in the settings? Turn censor on or off. Most other mmo's have this, why not maple?
    I might have asked this question before, i can't remember.

    A lot of the censored words and phrases are what would seem like even vaguely rude/bad terms or even medically correct terms in various different languages.
    I explained "skede" in the previous thread, but it's an older swedish/danish word that can mean the v-word for female genitalia (except nobody has used it like that in the past decade or something, certainly not among young people and it's not even a derogatory word). It mainly means sheath, or a set time period/phase. Perfectly innocent.

    A lot of it is outdated slang or simply strange spellings or phonetic spellings of a bad word.
    For example, "notsi" was censored before because it sounds like a certain old German taboo.

    It's been a year now without a new censor update though.

    I really think that changing the censorship is alot more hassle than it's worth, rather you should really work on the whole system itself, because most of the time, even if it's censored, people will find ways to bypass the censors, rather we should really work on increasing the censors whilst putting in place something like a click to peek sort of system, and obviously fixing the reporting system to enforce on the toilet mouths, have a meso required report system but you get rewarded for correctly reporting maybe, would help out the reports

    and can we suggest words which should be in the blacklist censor? cause i really think klit should be in that list, also should really get into how it sounds as well, like back when sexy was censored, i'd use sec(c), usually it's hard to use that word in an offensive way anyways, baffled me why it was censored for >10 years, also y is bukake not on that list? i fail to see how that word would ever be used spaced in such a way of two words which should be in the whitelist, really should get your stuff together, cause i still see offensive names on during the new job waves, which on a pretty dead server, i'd think it's safe to say that there's a load of the bad mouths running rampant

    This game is just silly with its censoring. It's aggravatingly frustrating when i can't type completely innocent general sentences because SOMEWHERE in those words is a coded arrangement of letters that could potentially form something inappropriate. Just make Censor a toggle or a checked box in options etc like EVERY OTHER mmo out there. It's frustrating to the rest of us when we can't even type what we want to say and nothing is wrong with it.

    "Do you have an ETA for when new words will be removed?

    Not at the moment, we are collecting feedback weekly though."

    This thread was created in January 2018, over 2 years ago. What is the point of collecting weekly feedback if it takes over 2 years for Nexon to even look at it?
