Summary

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

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

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

Cons

  • None
