Summary[edit]

The current forum has a list of curse words that are converted into stars. While the intent is good, it has a few unfortunate side effects. Cockpit (the place where a pilot sits in a ship) is translate into ****pit for example. This isnt the only word affected by the filter.

Additionally, most Eve Online players are adults and do not require filtering.

Solution[edit]

It is requested that the word filter in the new COSMOS forum system (if one exists) is controlled by a setting, so players can disable the word filter on the forums if they so choose.

Pros[edit]

  • Easier reading unfortunate but harmless words
  • No patronising word filter

Cons[edit]

  • None
