Can't say I fully agreed with this at first, but the majority of my bias stemmed from my time running with the Report Team. :roll: Putting those days aside, I'm glad to see that the multiplayer community is getting a second chance and an integrated reporting feature at long last. To the developers -- thank you for reconsidering. ^^

I see this as a great change! The report feature is easier to use, therefore it is more likely that casual players will use it. Many players were upset and left because of this, but this might draw them back to the game they loved. I see a bright future here.



(If the Report Team is ever reinstated I am totally willing to join)

I am unsure if the Report Team will be reinstated; it certainly wouldn't be a bad idea if inappropriate games become a problem again, but we don't want it to get to that point, either. We still encourage users to report any inappropriate behavior they see.

The first post says "mid-June;" Dave may not have a specific date for release yet, but mid-June is when it is estimated to be released.

Well, they can try, but we'll receive a transcript of the chat so we can confirm abuse before we take any action.
The beauty of technology lol. In any case it will be more beneficial for games with text chat to be able to be used on public games again. The lesser list of public has gone down a lot since the take-away when 2.7 came out but this should no longer be the case.

Omg omg thank you soooo much!!! You have no idea how excited I am again for text chat to be back!! YESSSSSSS :D :D I just got another account so it looks like I'm such a noob but i have been a part of wolfquest for probably four years now, so it delights me so much to see how this place has changed, for the better again now that people can take part in fun, carefree rp's again. Everyone loves a good rp, and now with the open text chat we can do this again! Thank you Wolf Quest!
Greatly excited,
Aspen

Omg Sooooooooo glad text chat is coming back. Not being able to type what i'm really thinking was taking a lot away from the fun of multiplayer

I am actually super excited for this! I certainly don't play WolfQuest as much as I used to, but I have great memories of roleplaying in-game for hours at a time. I know this will make public games a lot more interesting.

yes good. i appreciated the phrase chat because of the filtering, but MAN did it get annoying. i love that text chat is being reintroduced, since it'll make roleplaying and general communication a lot easier!
