Well that's what the report button is for shipmate. You notice someone being rude or swearing around the filter, all you have to do is click their name in the chat box, find and click the report button, and KI staff will take care of the rest. Hope that helps you out a bit. And if that doesnt work, just put them on your ignore list. Once on your ignore list, you cant see a single word they're saying, weither it's towards you or someone else.

no matter how much they try to remove bad words in the chat people will always find a way to wright them... but even there the fact that its not exactly the same word is less vulgar. i think KI did a great job on the chat! and even of they cant use bad words people can always be rude! that part of life not part of the game.

Wow you would think that some people have more to do with their money than to make more accounts just to bug us. Yea I know they can keep it a free account and do the deed, but still .
Hey KI, Any way you could let us know what happens when we report folk? We would feel a bit better knowing that our attempts at protecting the family atmosphere are accomplishing something. How about a way to let us know what actions were taken against the offenders? Like a public offender wall of shame? Any input?

Yes Sir x Smartly salutes x . You have my word on that. And I will continue to encourage my friends to do the same. Protection of our world is our duty and we benefit greatly by helping KI to enforce the rules that they set down to make our wonderful world a safer and happier place.

why are you posting it anyway? we dont need more chat limits. text chat is restricted enough, just because some people cant take words and choose to say it to everyone and get the word blocked

Yeticheif had some good advice about the report and ignore buttons. I would add to it that in options you can change the realm you are in. There are a many realms to occupy to reduce crowding in the game. If they are not on your friend list and you change realm, you are gone as far as they can see. You are still in the same location, but it's like you moved to another dimension. If they try to haunt you and search the realms and manage to find you, it's easy to switch again. You can whisper chat to friends you might be hanging out with which realm to change to.

itll take a couple tries for stalkers to find your realm too. just move around, or if all else fails, teleport to your house
