    Hello, everyone,

    The swear filter is one of the most debated things on ShadowXCraft. It's currently much less strict, and doesn't mute you until several attempts at swearing. I have spent many hours on the filter making it have few false positives, and I have tried to make it a good balance between what to filter, and what not to filter.

    This is a moral debate about what is right and wrong. The important thing to remember is that what you think is morally okay, another player or player's parent may not believe it to be morally okay. Minecraft's online playerbase is likely the most diverse playerbase of any video game in the entire world.

    The staff are proposing making it toggleable, where people can choose whether or not they can see swears. For those of us that are on the moral side of the debate that believes that kids being exposed to the explicit language is wrong, we do have concerns. We also have concerns about people abusing the freedom.

    More moderation would be needed, and if it ever gets out of hand, the swear filter will be temporarily enabled for everyone. A few weeks before our peak, in December 2015, we had some cyberbully events that were really bad for the community's health. Our top priority is to prevent that from happening again.

    Comment your feedback on here or on discord.

    Thanks for reading,
    The ShadowXCraft staff.
