Hey all! Love this MC world!
I've noticed that PW uses a very restricting chat filter. the 'Family friendly' label is a choice like any other to be respected, but the automatic mute comes across as quite harsh and 'ín your face' . It mutes you based on a blacklist of words, but those could be typed accidentally or in another meaning.
Today I got insta-muted for typing 'tom dick and harry'. The red message saying 'please keep it appropriate' and blocking the message is wonderful, but the mute feels excessive and punishing. Free speech is still a human right. Filtering out offensive language is great, but the immediate (and very long!) mute timer makes you feel like you objectively did something bad. Especially for new players, making an unfortunate typo can feel demotivating.
Last time I saw intentional spam: Lasted several minutes, solved by staff.
Today I referenced 'Tom Dick and Harry' from a cartoon: instantly muted for 1 minute.
Could it be considered to remove the mute timer, or only apply it for repeat offences? I believe this would greatly improve chat experience for new and experienced players alike
Would love to hear your opinions! Have a great day
