    So, I was able to log onto CCGN for a couple of seconds (don't you think I'd be coming on frequently- still laggy) so I could see if I can type in this message: (你好). It returned error message:
    I'm like seriously? Chinese is the most popular language in the world and the second most popular on the Internet (for every 8 English speakers, there are 7 Chinese speakers). So WHY is it blocked? I mean, now a whole bunch of people on the Internet can't communicate easily. I've also noticed stuff like Greek letters are blocked. Great.
    Why is this blocked even?

    Also the chat filter REALLY needs to be lightened up. Now there are tons of stuff that can't be said:
    Just because there are 1 out of every 100 brats that do OptiFine scams does not mean the word should be blocked. It is in no way inappropriate, it is in no way meant for scamming, and most importantly, you are preventing hundreds of players from performing a perfectly legit and harmless action! I've played Minecraft for more than a year now, I've been on several servers before, and not once have I seen an OptiFine scam! We have the reports section for a reason!

    So my suggestion is to only block words that are absolutely, positively inappropriate (ie swear words) in its original form
    and obvious substitutes
    and nothing else.

    Words that should be unblocked:
    Thank you for your consideration :).

    I don't know why the Chinese characters are blocked, but it's not that big of a deal. Minecraft isn't as popular in China. As for the math symbols, not that big of a deal either. I'm not sure about those Dutch words, since I don't know what they mean. OptiFine was blocked due to scammers, it's pretty easy to bypass it though. Jew was blocked to prevent from people using it as an insult (this was brought up a few times before...there's really no need to unblock it). Noob was blocked for obvious reasons. Lag was blocked because so many people spam it in chat (it is still spammed even though it's blocked).

    Als het means "if it"
    Dankjewel means "thanks / thank you"

    I really don't know why these are blocked though.

    Likely because "dankjewel" contains the subword "Jew", and "als het" contains the s-word as a subword (see if you can find it).
    But it's preventing legit people from performing legit actions :(. Besides, even if Chinese and Greek/Hebrew/Russian aren't spoken as much, it doesn't mean that we should prevent people from speaking these languages. (And in the country that I live in, Chinese is the third most popular language.)

    Here's a URL that should be blocked: http://www.cubecraft.net Reason? It's quite obvious.

    Also, a player by the name of Creeper4130 was complaining that she couldn't say her own name.

    "OptiFine" should really be unblocked. You are preventing thousands of legit players for using a legit word just because of a few troublemakers. Is that fair?

    Well sort of yes. Those players who are legit probably don't need to say OptiFine. And if they do need to it is allowed in /tell. Just my opinion.

    But is it still fair to have it blocked though? Like blocking those languages that don't use the Latin alphabet? I'm a legit player and I need to say "OptiFine".

    If I had to use /tell, there's a good chance the guy might not know, then I'll have to try somebody else...

    You know what is serious though? Not being able to type accents or inverted question/exclamation marks. Bad news to people who speak in foreign languages.
    Just because something has slashes in it doesn't mean it's a URL :mad:! I believe slashes should only be blocked if it is immediately preceded by an Internet TLD, a domain name or "http://" or "https://".

    Yeah, that became a big deal awhile ago. Now people don't mind it as much.

    I think it should be allowed, although the chinese letters spam the chat so much! It will create so much spam.

    Hmm, no one actually said why characters not found on the keyboard are blocked, and no one explained why this is blocked as well.
    I need to say the above in Tower Defense if the enemy sends creepers. I could say "creeper incoming", but that takes longer to type, not to mention "alert" comes to my mind first.

    Reason for Chinese Block filter

    It is because, there was like, 8 EFFING QUINTILION OF SPAM WITH CHINESE WORDS
    About... "Vital" Organ.
    And you know the rest
    Scams.
    That is most likely the reason.

    The others, idk.

    I don't know about the accented characters block, and "creeper alert". Seriously, some people can't even say their own usernames.

    I do agree that the Chinese characters should be unblocked.
    Maths symbols doesn't really make that big of a deal. I mean who uses them? But still, it is kind of strange that they are blocked.
    I do think Jew should be unblocked.
    The rest should stay blocked imo.

    Actually, I got redirected here from this thread https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/compilation-of-suggestions.132710/ bumping his own suggestion threads so I guess it isn't really necro-posting as the user asked for his suggestions to be looked at.

    Eh, this isn't your thread, so it is necro-posting, if it was your own thread, you can, if it is a media/forum game thread, then you can.
