# 1 Profanity false (?) positives
12-04-2010, 04:00 AM
Can someone explain to me, why I'm guilty of using profane language when putting the following into a dialog:
Quote:
[Rank], it's good to see some Starfleet personnel down here after all. The colony needs some of that future technology from the Voyager to defend itself against the Borg.
I'm not a native speaker, but it appears pretty harmless to me. It's not the reference to Voyager, I tried to delete it, and it still isn't kosher.

A suggestion: It would be nice, if the word/phrase in question would be highlighted, so the author does not have to scratch her head that hard

Regards,
Rachel

I haven't tried it out yet, but my gut is that the game does not allow certain words from the series (such as Enterprise, Voyager, Defiant). It may be registering these "forbidden words" as profanity since the designers didn't bother listing which words aren't allowed for which reasons.

You know some of us have had a similar problem with our character bios when we write them in the character generation system. The walk around there was simple. Cut and delete the text from the biography box, load into the game, open character profile and paste text back into the biography box. You problem has no such cure.

I read what you wrote and while the grammar is a little awkward, (far from the worst I have read in official game missions) there is nothing wrong about what you wrote. Since you can reedit it I suggest cutting it into fragments in Notepad or Word and adding it one fragment at a time till it nails you for profanity. That should give you a clue as to which word or word combination the Foundry does not like.

I've also got a message a the bottom left of the Foundry saying my mission contains profane text.

I can assure you it does not.

Has anyone every noticed how the phrase "i s n ' t ___ i t" gets filtered out in game for referring to the female upper chest anatomy?

This is ridiculous, Cryptic. Come on, the EULA clearly states that you're not responsible for the text that comes up in game. Sort it out please.

This isnt true. I was just playing a mission "Worst of All Worlds" and in it, my science officer noted that scanners could locate the "Reliant, Constitution and Enterprise" in the area

Awesome mission as well btw, kudos to Captain Revo

If "t<space>it" registers as profanity, you are going to knock out quite a few English sentences.

And what about "Assault", "Assimilate"....?

Assassination is like saying a naughty word twice....

What are we 12? The game is T for Teen for goodness sake! Have you ever gone to a public school in America? Have you ever spoken to a 16 year old?

Please, any teen who doesn't know and embrace these words is likely so sheltered they won't fit into society anyway, kinda like that odd character Al Franken played on SNL, Stuart Smalley the bright and cheerful self-help guy who had issues coming to terms with the darker parts of reality.

But, I digress. I couldn't name my robotic ninja guy In Champions Arc L.I.T.E. for reasons that were not immediately apparent.

The filter needs some work.

Assault is banned on Black OPS as a Class Name, for profanity

Even though the section the rifle is listed under is called "Assault Rifles"

I had a bug report fail because the cluster mission that the bug was on included a filtered word in the system name
