Hello all,

The staff team would like to re-design the PG-13 chat only rule. We will be creating a new rule based on your opinions on how we should handle swearing and suggestive topics in chat.

The current rule is as follows: "Please be mindful of other people when speaking in chat, as our server attracts players of all ages. This follows the rules with respecting players and staff. We ask all players to refrain from using profane or offensive language. We refer to the PG-13 tag similarly to that of movie ratings, specifically to chat context. Words such as ass, damn, or shit are okay for sporadic use as long as they are not directed towards another player. All other words are considered against this rule. We have an 18+ chat voice channel on our discord server for those of age."

Your input is important to us, please reply and you will receive a free diamond crate key in-game.

I feel as though "All other words are considered against this rule" is a little vague and leave a lot to interpretation of the staff member. for example, hell. some consider it a swear and some do not. someone could be told its not and say it and a staff member could say they broke the rule. the other thing is it should depend on the context. words like hell can be a noun, as in the place of hell, that I feel should not be against this rule. but saying something like "go to hell" to another player should still be against it.

A large portion of this server appears to be people in their 20's. As long as it isn't excessive and isn't directed towards other people I think we should lift the pg-13 rule.

I agree. While this is meant to be a family friendly server, it doesn't seem like theres many players younger than 13, or not mature enough to be able to handle it. As long as people aren't using it to be hateful to a specific person/group of people, I see no harm in getting rid of it all together~

I only ever see player over the age of 13 rather than under, and I agree that unless its meant to be insulting, I dont think we need to be PG-13

Thank you all for your input so far. I will leave this thread open for further discussion until May 9, and we (the staff team) will re-write the rule to make it more appropriate for our server.

If you haven't received a diamond key yet, please send me a message here on enjin or on the discord server and I'll get that to you.

Thanks!

Update:

Again thank you all for your input. The staff team will rewrite the PG13 rule together during our June staff meeting (usually the first weekend of the month). We will make an announcement and make sure everyone sees the new rule when it is out. That being said, from this point forward we will be enforcing the PG13 less heavily than we do now. Things like porn links or explicit sexual innuendo will still not be tolerated. If you never have any problems with abiding by the rules, theres no need to worry since you're already a model TKU player.

Thank you all! If you havent received your key for your input please message me on discord.
