Yeah, I'm not okay with this. Fucking Microsoft.
From censoring words, to moving into Microsoft accounts to this? This is getting out of hand and Mojang is completely happy with this.
I've seen a [reply on Twitter](https://twitter.com/cen0b/status/1539540369796321280) showing a screenshot of the person getting banned for 3 days from online play because he typed "boobies" on anvil textbook IN A PRIVATE WORLD!
So much is wrong with this example alone!
1. In a private world you must be able to write and say whatever you want
2. Nobody should track down each move you make within the game
3. Even if you say something "wrong" it must be up to the server to decide your panishment
4. Muting players exists (or can exist). Allow the possibility of muting an account instead of banning them outright!
Let me know what your thoughts on these are and if I got anything wrong
What the fuck! Boobies isn't even a bad word, and wheres the glossary for bad words so we know what's bad??
Oh, we can’t have that. Then kids will learn swears, and that’s the end of the world! /s
Microsoft sees it more as /srs
Your statement is the definition of correct
I havent gone on the game for a while
Is this java edition???
Bedrock too. I tried to name my trousers "Rectum Protectum". Profanity filter kicked in before I could even write it. I've also heard stories about fullcaps messages being censored as well and now I'm genuinely afraid for my 5 year long minecraft SMP.
one time a few years ago, me and a friend in a private adult minecraft server were coming up with ideas for lewd cake names for their erotic cake store
I'm worried if we did that now we would get banned even though adult stuff was allowed on that server
This technically wasn't a private world actually. Apparently, a friend of his friend reported him (for some bizarre reason).
Not to mention swearing isn't some universally vile thing in the first place. Why should adults not be allowed to casually swear on a private server?
Is this confirmed to be true? This is my biggest concern with this update. What I do on my own server that I own is none of Microsoft's business. Does anyone have insight into the data that Microsoft is collecting?
Why couldn't they add good bedrock parity. Like bone mealing sugar cane or the better wither fight
Yea but i dont want the weird ass creative flight.
But i do like to see the washing mechanic for Leather armor.
No, keep that beast away from my Minecraft.
with the player reporting bullshit aside allay dancing and duplication is so awesome
Minecraft getting kinda dystopian. Big Mojang is watching you!
And to thing all of this downfall began with two pixels
Unironically it's starting to look like that.
Looks like the community will have *another* split
1.8.9 (for PvP)
I guess I'm gonna use tlauncher and non licence account while playing with my friends using LAN, thank you Microsoft, now I don't have any reason to buy your products.
Jokes on u , tlauncher won't work after 2023
What's tlauncher? BTW Mineshafter was broken with the 1.19.0 update. Game won't even launch. Bet it has to do with forcing authentication to prove you are who you say you are all for this chat system. Aka no false positives.
What is mojang even gaining by doing this
Its not like money is an issue they are the number one most popular game
They don’t need money desperately
And even if they did what would moderation do?
I doubt there are that many people who aren’t able to buy the game due to a lack of moderation to the point where it’s harming mojangs sales
because mircosoft is money hungry
What does money have to do with a global ban system?
If Minecraft bans your account, you won't be able to play, so if you want to play, you'll have to buy a new account.
It will just encourage more people to get cracked minecraft
That's only if you get perma-bamned, which would only happen if you were reported for something serious. Even then, you can still play singleplayer.
And if Mojang really thought of doing this _just_ to get more money, it sure as heck is a super convoluted way of doing so! Way to connect the dots.
You can get banned in single player too, other Redditors in this thread have had that happen to them
According to screenshots, and the information on the changelog that's not the case. You get banned from online play. Not Minecraft all together. Singleplayer bans only apply to Bedrock on consoles or something.
Edit: here's the changelog.
That's still single player bans
What? Online play is not singleplayer. It's access to multiplayer features like realms and servers and (possibly) Lan. If you've seen the Java main menu with online play disabled, you'd notice that only the multiplayer and realms buttons are greyed out. You can still play in your singleplayer worlds.
> Singleplayer bans only apply to Bedrock on consoles or something.
you said so yourself that single player bans still happen on bedrock worlds
...and soon to be Java as well. They are slowly implementing changes.
Lan, it’s technically not online
I don't think Microsoft sees it that way
you can’t play lan too, if you banned
You need to go to the Multiplayer screen to join a LAN game and when you're banned the Multiplayer button is locked
The mild update is even worse now wooo :D
Time to get auto-banned for things we say, YAY!
Hell they're just moving away from Parity at this point
This would be the last thing that I would have expected them to fix
Wait no crap. *mess up
It's happened before, they made combat more time-consuming by making it so that the player deals only half a heart when punching to match java. I would be happier if they made it so that java players deal a full heart when punching
Funnily enough that used to be the case before beta 1.8
Bro, u said "yay" in all caps which can be interpreted as yelling which is not very nice.
are we safe if we stay on older versions?
Late stage capitalism ruining Minecraft yet again. Fuck Microsoft and their CEOs.
Just have no friends and play single player. Problem solved.
Unless they wanna add it in singleplayer. Then i start literaly making a bot wich spams all mojang social accounts.
Make the bot duplicate after getting a ban/block/takedown
Apparently it's in single player too...
Where did you get that?
In Bedrock edition all worlds are considered multiplayer worlds. I'm afraid of getting banned from my 5 year old Minecraft world now.
If you're not on Xbox (or another console?), you can still play on your worlds. You just can't have others joining. Why Xbox bans singleplayer? I have no idea. Console policy I guess.
Good thing I got a vpn so microsoft can’t be creepy and stalk my Minecraft worlds
It's a player report system, not a data-collection system
So they can’t get past it
Hate to burst ur bubble, but that's not what a VPN does. Ur account info is still stored on MS servers - a VPN can block MS from connecting to ur device, but then you'd be locked out of ur account.
You sure??? We are talking about Microsoft here!
I've done some reading on the Wiki recently and I just found out that during the 1.18 development cycle in 21w38a Mojang apparently re-added the Snooper which collects data about your PC to "improve the game experience" with the Major difference from the old Snooper settings back in 1.12 being that there is no UI to turn it off. You can't turn off the snooper in 1.18 and above. So yeah, I'm definitely reconsidering. If they can collect data about the specs of my PC there is without a doubt a high chance of them collecting whatever you type in chat even if it's singleplayer.
Also to note that 1.19.0 they made it impossible to use Mineshafter as it needs to authenticate the user to even launch that version or higher.
Seems like they are gearing up to tag track and trace activity with no way of spoofing. Can't say it wasn't me.
It was announced around the time of 1.16. Yet the concern died down in like 5 days
No, 1.16 introduced a player blocking system that allowed you to block players so you wouldn't see their messages. No bans were mentioned at the time.
Muting a player's messages for yourself is not even close to an easily abusable player report system. The player you muted could still play on the server and chat but only you wouldn't see their messages.
Here's a question I've been having - how does this work with older versions of Minecraft? Say ur playing 2b2t on 1.12.2, is one able to swap to 1.19.1 and report them. Or must they both be on the same server, post-1.19.1?
You need to be both on a 1.19.1 server to report someone. Then if they get banned when they launch minecraft their launcher will block multiplayer on any version of Minecraft. At lease that's the way I believe it will work.
Nope, since old versions still send chat logs (can be disabled on *really* old ones), the reporting system still has access.
Ya'll overreacting its just a game
No we're not. The firelies and birch forest, sure that was an overreaction.
This isn't. This is censorship. Not even server admins can control this, and, get this: wheres the list of "profanity" words? If they are banning *without even telling us the rules*, that's the definition of totalitarian dictatorship
Bro are you fucking comparing not allowing to swear on a game tehnically designed for children to a totalitarian dictatorship? Ffs.
Nope. Maybe I could have worded it better, I was exaggerating, using a "hyperbole". But it's not "not being allowed to swear" it's "getting your entire account permanently banned from the entirety of online play (hopefully only online) for saying some banned words (which I don't think are specified. Some people consider"ass/arse " a swear, some don't. Same with "asshole". What does Mojang think, and will they tell us?)"
Ofc they will tell us, what company wants their players to be banned? And it's not like they will ban you the second you say a swear word.
1. Where is it? Can you give me a link?
2. That's what the current information says
I said they will, not that it is already out.
Why's it not out yet? We're on 1.19.1pre1 already, by the time it gets fully released if there *isn't* a full list then, point proven
You want then to list every swear word in every language?
Every swear word they are banning, yes. It's just a simple copy-paste from wherever their storying the list
yes...? What kind of question is that, there's several swear works in some languages that are just normal words in english, are we gonna get banned for those too? The fuck kind of thinking is that
Ok if y’all know the profanity words, then you guys would use similar words (migger instead of n word) to bypass the system and then they will update the list and you will still bitching. Facism is when gamers can say the n word freely fr fr 🤦♂️
Exactly. Also, I'm talking about swears not slurs, very different situation.
This ban doesn't even solve the issue it claims to, like all game censorship
what swearword are you gonna miss the most?
Not me specifically. I don't use swears in chat myself.
But if I ran a private Minecraft server and wanted to swear with friends, that should be my right
Good old swearing with friends
Imagine getting downvoted for having a opinion
Downvotes are a way to express your opinion of someone else's opinion
java players when they can’t swear at young children
Java players when they type in all caps on a private LAN world:
One of the many issues is that there are programmers who code moderation plugins and sell them to server owners can mo longer do this
Selling plugins could be a way that some people make money on the side
Now this is almost completely irrelevant
Welcome to a corporate society that tries to usher control on all customers by making them addicted to their games, 1 misstep, and banned. So you can buy a new account so they keep making profit. Whoever thought of this new system is evil.
What we need is Notch to come back to Mojang pls contact him and tell him that Minecraft needs him. Comment the same thing as me at any social media u have. Try to contact Notch!!
Notch literally sold Minecraft to Microsoft because he couldn't handle working on it anymore since the community was stressing him out and even if by some miracle he gets back into Mojang despite him literally not wanting to work on Minecraft and his very much terrible reputation, what is he gonna do that's gonna help undo this trainwreck of a feature?
