Chat Filtering Too Strict

darthtzarr Member Posts: 1,003 Arc User
The default profanity filter is now filtering "com" out of messages, likely to prevent bot spamming nonsense. However, it was not implemented in a user friendly way. It will now filter out the "com" in these phrases:

Welcome to the guild!
What companion do you have?
It's safe here, come quickly!
Pick up the new company gear in the stronghold.

I am all for reducing bots, but some of these phrases are nearly required for playing the game. Don't make the profanity filter useless by forcing people to disable it.

    This needs to be addressed and changed ASAP.

    I just was trying to send a help ticket about how I couldn't complete a quest, and it kept saying I couldn't send the ticket because it contained profanity!

    After lots of hair-pulling I realized it's because it had the word "complete" in it!!

    This is the stupidest thing I've ever heard of!

    So I just sent them another help ticket about how I can't "cumplete" a help ticket... and that tongue-in-cheek message was allowed to go through! Maybe that'll make the point.

    When trying to name a companion, I couldn't name a Con Artist "Con Artist"...

    For some reason 600K is filtered too, I understand that some word may translate to profanity in other languages, got and Roger might be examples of that, and I can work around the 600K thing but if we filter com and can no longer use companion or comp for short that seems silly.

    "Roger" is British slang for having intercourse with someone. But it is also a not-altogether-uncommon given name.

    "600k" is leetspeak for a racial slur. A really old-fashioned racial slur that it seems to me most Neverwinter players have never seen or heard in all their lives.

    Com/con are morphemes (small segments of written language that make up words, in the same sense that phonemes are sounds that make up spoken language), and filtering a morpheme is the point where your profanity filter jumps the shark. You effectively render the entire language unintelligible. Which is kind of impressive, really.

    "Com" being filtered should be fixed with the latest patch.

    We are looking into "55" and "600k" being filtered. Thank you for those reports.
