Maybe the world server be made to could block certain words (Like
inapproperiate language - I will not go into detail) from being put on
signs. This would greatly reduce the need for people to clean up garbage in
public building worlds.

Amen. AWCI would no doubt put this into use in Alphaworld, and down goes perfectly legit builds, particularly some integral parts of
some of mine.

Define obscenity. "Damned"? AWCUM would use this feature to ban these words. I will attempt to give a legit use for each.

Shit: "To the people who I telegrammed to remove builds from here: Delete your shit"
Damn: "This building cannot be finish because AWCI's damned cell data limit is too fucking small"
Fuck: See above
Ass: (Caption under a picture of my girlfriend) "Look at dat sweet ass"
Bitch: I can't find anything for this one that wouldn't have females beating me with sticks.
Pussy: (I trust they won't ban medical terms) "Awww, isn't that a cute pussy cat?"

The word usage is choice and I know it can be said other ways, but exactly HOW do you expect me to sound like myself using words
like poop and crud and kitty and female dog in heat and crappy and...

Do you need to use THOSE words specifically?

Or can they be substituted?

Assuming you were attempting to reply to me, as I said, they could be substituted, but not without completely changing my
personality 180 degrees. Now a list of words clientside that you want censored with a parental password lock would be nice, because
then it would be applied to chat too. You see, it is VERY simple to censor words clientside, even on signs, because the command
parsing is done clientside. Simply replace FUCK with a placeholder of **** in the rendering. However, I can't see any easy way of
getting around seeing it in the edit box, but oh well.

I meant restricting the words from even being put there, such as special
commands in aw.

Sounds like a 12 year old world owner who is offended by some of the things said and put on signs. Please mature and realize that if
it's going to happen, my way is much more practical as it requires almost no coding and won't alienate AWCI's customers and cause
them to go under?

If you want a word filter on your world, follow KAH's advice and use a bot, most of us realize that censorship SUCKS and we don't
want it in Alpha Prime.

Hey, let's be sensible. Having the server do this would be completely stupid
if the client could do it, right? In other words, there can be a place to
choose whether there could be inappropriate language or not in AW itself.
