I believe we should continue to not allow swearing as Survival State is a towny server. This may sound completely unrelated, but we are simply a majority PvE server, with pvp optional. This gives the server a peaceful and serene atmosphere and so, if we allow the use of swear words, then I believe, we are contradicting our servers atmosphere. I also believe that by allowing swearing, we are degrading the community we have on the server. A majority of chat, I believe, is done without people meeting the other people in 'person', and so a lot of our emotions and our ideas towards someone or something are shown directly though text chat, rather than vc or by player movements or motives in game. I believe that by allowing swearing, we change the atmosphere to a more negative one, and by doing so, I believe people's friendships may start to break across the server, as people will start looking unfavourably and negatively towards people who swear a lot, or have lots of vulgar disagreements, and while disagreements do still happen without swearing, the atmosphere of the server and the lack of truly hateful words minimise long term loss of relationships, as people are more likely going to be able to get over someone calling them an idiot, than if they were to use vulgar and highly spiteful words to insult the other player... Thanks for reading. -Rex

Having us as a PG server is what has made us great. We're a community, we could even call ourselves a family.

Swear words are used because they have power in them. I can assure you if we allow swearing, the community will become a lot more toxic and aggressive. Even if we punish the misdo-ers, it won't matter. People will still use swearing as a way to harm other people. I can't think of a time when swearing hasn't been used for an offence, or as a joke.

A big no from me. We'll be taking away the nice PG ST community from ST, and without that, ST isn't ST..

Very true. The reason why people join and stay on ST is because of our respectful principles toward each other. Our community generated from clean and respectful players. There is a reason why others, such as myself, decided to join and stay with the ST community. To be honest, I would be really uncomfortable if that were to change, as others will be too. I was shocked to see that this was even a question. Not gonna lie, This makes me really concerned about the future of ST.

i dont mind cursing at all but this rule just makes you behave and makes you a nicer person so i dont think it should be allowed on survival state which has an amazing community at the moment

The rule doesn't make people nicer rules don't change how people act and people don't necessarily follow rules which don't make them behave, the statement rules make people behave is completely false it is more of a warning.

I don't have a problem with people being able to swear but maybe set some boundaries for how negatory things could get. Like the S, word, D, word and maybe a few others wouldn't be as bad. However, when it comes to like the F, word and the B, words, it could be harassment when someone doesn't like to be called that randomly by people they aren't fine with them calling them that. I think if there are boundaries it would be fine but without boundaries could bring some chaos and havoc among the other members and players of the server. Also if it doesn't become a thing then there should be a forum post or something saying what kinda of words we could use because I have seen people were arguing about something someone said.

I agree with you for the most part.
On an a server I used to play on (recently closed) we allowed swearing as long as it wasn't directed TOWARDS a person. So no saying "you are a" or anything of the sort. It could only be used in sentences such as "S-, I just fell off my build" etc.
Some words are too extreme such as the B word in my opinion, because I don't see anybody commenting with the B word not being about someone, unless it was calling a mob a B. So yes, I agree I think it would be fine just in moderation, and only certain things.

However, either way this server is fabulous and I of course respect any decision made. :p
