This is genuinely so ridiculous and fucked. How are you going to allow me to turn off the profanity filter for a fucking realm that I bought and then tell me that I can't play the game with my friends because we were cussing in it. 2/4 of us can't play anymore and the only reason why the other two can still play is because they're on different clients. This is genuinely stupid. How does this even get fixed? Like how does me cussing and having fun with my friends equate to me being banned from playing online ever (couldn't play Hypixel or Mineplex to do building games afterwards)? It's ridiculous. We spend our own money to play the game only to be stopped when we do something that you allow us to do by turning the filter off. Insanity.
Sorry I just had to let off some steam because this is so dumb to me.
What do I do to stop this from happening in the future?
Edit: Did some research with my friends and found a whole list of rules that you can get suspended or even BANNED for from the game. Paid for this realm 2 weeks ago, now I can’t play for the next week even though I dumped 10 bucks on it. Hilarious.
Edit 2: This is what I was suspended for. Suppose I should have given that context to begin with. We call each other cunt and bitch on a normal basis, we would never say these things to other people if they were new. We’re girls and gay people all 19+ so we use really crude language to address each other at times. So it’s not like we were in the presence of young people and harmed them.
Last edit: I’ve been playing Hypixel for a solid 8+ years and I’ve not once broken a harassment rule or been bigoted on those servers. I’m not mad because I can’t say slurs (as if I was even saying slurs), but mad because this is something I paid for, and they allow me to turn the filter off without any advisory for the repercussions of turning the filter off. I’m mad because I can’t play the game with my friends (one of them had a week ban opposed to my 3 days), and our experience to play games together for the first time in two weeks was fucked over by Mojang. That’s all I gotta say. They need to fix this shit or Terraria might be the move for life.
Final update, actually: My friends would never report each other unless we were all in on the joke together. We’ve been friends for years and know our limits and are empathetic when someone has crossed a line (if it ever happens). There’s countless experiences in the comments of people going through the same thing where if they say something bad in chat (with friends present or alone), and wake up with a suspension. This is not a player-to-player problem, this is an auto-moderation problem.
FINAL LINK: HERE is Minecraft support ADMITTING that even if someone doesn’t report, they’ll take action themselves.
I swear this is the last time I’m updating this because some cynics still don’t believe Minecraft could do such a thing. Here is Minecraft admitting their moderators can suspend or ban people who say cuss words. This is the entire article. Here is the FAQ that further supports this. This is the last thing I’ll add, if you really think my friends still reported me I assure you we literally have no idea how to report each other, and the process of reporting includes filling out a form and a ticket to send to support. None of us made each other that mad to do all of that.
MOJANG UPDATE AND EDIT: They’ve unsuspended me after after reviewing my case last night, I threatened that legal action could take place if it wasn’t a student in debt that they had suspended and they backed down. Here is them reinstating my account. I feel like they know their policies are grounds for legal action, which is why they took action so quickly.
I keep saying this is my last update.. LOL Here is what my other friend who got a worse punishment than me has to say. All of us are still best friends and are extremely adamant that we wouldn’t do that to each other. I believe my friends, we’ve been honest to each other for years and even if one of them did report us two, they’d come clean and we’d be understanding that they weren’t aware of the consequences we would face. Love you girls!
