#7 filter for chat-Screen/Player-Names


All people can use all possible names/words.
Sometimes they use politicaly incorrect names/words.
Its very disturbing for the others.

So how about a filter for the names/words that can
be checked by server and droped these people automaticly.

The rules can be defined as regular expressions.

    Isn't this pointless? People with really bad intentions will
    simply work around any fixed list of banned words with
    creative misspellings. And if you make your list too fuzzy,
    you'll filter too much.

    Best weapon again those people is an admin on a server.
    But reality looks different. Admins are to busy to play on
    their own servers and there are no ways to make some
    kind of filtering.

    I see for example very often people with name HITLER. Its a
    basic word that can be simply be filtered.

    If you use regular expressions then you can filter very
    I think this is a first step for clean servers.

    And then how are you going to stop people like Supertard
    from making swastika mazes? Will we have a filter for that,

    As z-man said, there are hard limits for filtering.
    If somebody really have bad intensions, he will find a way
    to ommit filtering.

    How deep you filter is a server-admin dependent.
    In case you can make a hard-list or don't use a filter anyway.

    My intension is to block those who are new in this game
    and came in just for chat.

    part of the fun of this game is that it is uncensored
