Another one just came across the wire . . . now this one seems to have the potential to stir some controversy I think.
*HOLD ON TO YOUR SEATS*
New Chat Enhancements Announced
We are releasing new community enhancements very soon!
One of the enhancements is 18+ Chat*. 18+ Chat will allow players a more open communication environment with other 18+ players. Starting tonight, we are adding web-based account controls for 18+ chat. Please be aware that although the control will be added to your account, 18+ Chat will NOT be launched tonight.
This chat feature is in response to our community's requests. To ensure the highest level of safety, we have chosen to launch this for our active Subscriber community only. Please note that this option is off by default, and you must actively select this option under Account Management.
Our terms for in-game communication with other players will remain the same. Violent and abusive behavior, as well as the exchange of personal information is still not acceptable.
Once we launch this feature, the following updates to chat will apply:
Menu Chat (default setting for under13)
• players will continue to see only Menu Chat.
13 to 18+ Text Chat (default setting for 13+)
• players will continue to see only our Dictionary Text Chat.
• players will NOT see the 18+ chat.
New 18+ Chat
• will be filtered for profanity.
*Accounts must be 18+ and must be an active subscriber with a valid credit card on file.
Happy Chatting to the 18+
