  • Fix the word filter.

    The word filter of Wartune is hanging on a narrow edge. It filters out words/acronyms which stand for (almost globally) known producers of products. For example "GM" is filtered out, which stands for stuff like Game Master, Guild Master, and in global industry, General Motors. Filtering that, for example is like giving an advertisement edge for Toyota. Fix the stuff before some nitpick notices your product preferences, for such in court of law is seen as infringement of one or other sort.

    Since advertising in game is not allowed, I think we're good... Especially since the GM filtering has got nothing to do with Gen.Motors. This is no global industry, it's a game, after all. And not one about cars, either.
    "The trolls of the Ramtops call her Aaoograha hoa ("She Who Must Be Avoided")
    and the dwarf name for her, K'ez'rek d'b'duz, translates to "Go Around the Other Side of the Mountain."

      True. However, that's not how people in fancy suits see the world.

      Addendum: besides, the filter cuts out a number of words which are narrow "swear words" in some languages, but completely different (non-swear ones) in others.

            Ah, so you know why it's filtered then? Do tell, I'm sure everybody is wondering.

                the filters are too rough. If a word has a G and M next to eachother, then the that part of the word is cencored. That makes NO sense! Like, Fragments (its IN THE GAME and NOT filtered, but when you use the same word in chat, its filtered.) Be consistant atleast.
