    Due to the failure to institute the registered
    player option, a 2 week mute for these ISPs
    may be the only solution that seems fitting.

    Muting the player name would be senseless
    and a total waste of time. They are having
    a delightful time showing us their butts and
    failure to do something effective would only
    seem to encourage them to try again.

    These problems are easily corrected if the
    admins chose to implement some better
    controls.

    Action taken and reported to the other admins. Im gonna talk with my co-admins if we can make something about when admins are not present.

    @rommel
    Implementation is not in our hands really, that is to the debs, we can only be there and take action.

    Muting them proved very effective for me
    but that doesn’t eliminate the likelyhood of
    repeat performances.

    Yes quite sad that newcomers have to see this kind of stuff. Hope no more players like that come, but hey its the internet… :S

    Was one of them “something” Tiger , I left him a little before that after a full game on beginners and had to tone him down alot. he discovered the censor has trouble with caps.

    No one on main when I left a little before that (I’m eastern) before 10:00pm

    edit_never mind, I see names in admin section, they’re on the permanent fecal roster, will keep an eye out…..sounds like a pair of aces.

    In instances like this I am always glad for the built in “Ignore” function of the chat. I get the feeling I’ve seen these clowns before, but under different names. I appreciate the fast actions taken to eliminate the problem, as my 13yr old daughter was trying to play.

    One note, however one of the aspects of the game I enjoy is it’s somewhat casual nature. In instances like this the subject of preventing “jerks” always comes up. Please be careful in your decisions. While a few jerks can chase off new players, excessive “controls” can deter legit players, while doing very little to prevent the jerks, who think it’s a challenge to circumvent such measures.

    The chat filter probably could be enhanced, would be nice. It will never cover everything but it should cover obvious stuff.

    THe chat filter is a long standing point of contention, there is merit in putting in a feature/bug request. The devs are the ones to handle that, not the admins. Concerns and ideas about a fix shoudl be directed to the feature request thread. Admins who have a concern should talk about it to the devs.

    I can say for sure, but there may not be much more they can do to fix the filter. We’ll see.
