  2. Profanity isn't bannable, that's already been set. There's been some developments in the time since the post - Mojang has (somewhat) clarified that their intent is more for severe offenses (actual harassment, real threats, etc). Of course - what they say and what they do are two separate things. However the good news is that it does look as though there will be an opt-out, as only "signed" messages can be reported. Basically if a message is signed it has a digital signature with it that confirms that "yes, this message 100% came from this user". Unsigned messages cannot be reported since there's no way to verify. And as of right now, PaperMC 1.19 builds allow for message signing to be disabled (and in fact it's setup like this by default), which effectively means all messages within that server are not reportable. As long as this doesn't magically change between now and release, it won't matter a great deal what they consider enforceable - as it won't have any effect in CU (and likely many other servers too if I had to guess). So I suppose the tl;dr is that as of now, it's looking like it won't be a very big deal at all ultimately - servers that don't want to use it likely won't have to, and the pg-13 servers that do can have fun with it I guess
  3. Howdy, folks - we've got a fairly important announcement to make today. As of now, we are delaying all plans to update to 1.19 until further notice. We do hope to update at some point down the line, but there are some features that 1.19 (and moreso 1.19.1) appear to be implementing that we feel could end up doing serious damage to the Minecraft community as a whole. Chat Signing and Player Reporting As of 1.19.1 Pre-Release 1, chat messages on servers can be reported to Mojang for a number of reasons. Some of them are completely reasonable, others are borderline, and some yet are downright unacceptable. This situation is still developing and Mojang has recently started to make some adjustments - so there is some hope - but the system itself is still deeply concerning. You might be wondering - what happens if a player gets reported? Well, if Mojang decides the report is valid, the player reported will face a temporary or even permanent ban from multiplayer and Realms. Yes, you read that right - a player could be reported for a chat message and potentially be given a permanent ban from the entirety of Minecraft multiplayer. This is not a joke, and is not an exaggeration - this is a real feature that, as of writing, is planned for 1.19.1. The initial 1.19 update introduces part of this feature, which is chat message signing and a profanity filter toggle. We don't know where this feature is going, but with the nature of our server being largely geared towards a more adult audience, we feel that updating at this time could be a risk not just to our server, but to anyone who plays on it. Options - or Lack Thereof With this feature, we felt as though we effectively had two options: Stay on 1.18.2 for the foreseeable future, until when/if the reporting feature is removed, allowed to be opted out of by server administrators, or scaled back to where it wouldn't impact us Update to 1.19/1.19.1 and disallow all mature subject matter in server chat, including forbidding all sexual-related topics from discussion outright and the complete banning of swear words on the server As you might guess, that second option is not very desirable. We've allowed most server chat outside of racial slurs and actual outright harassment since 2014 - and we really don't want to change that. Not only that, but we suspect you guys wouldn't enjoy that very much, either. So, as of now - we've made the decision to remain on 1.18.2 for a period of time to see where this situation goes. We want to see where this feature develops, if any opt-outs are made available, and if they start to overreach their enforcement after some time. Our hope is that this won't be a permanent thing, and that Mojang will continue their trend of listening to their community and come up with a viable solution for adult servers - but we can't know for sure just yet. That, and this feature feels as though it's likely come down from Microsoft as opposed to Mojang themselves. We will continue developing features and fixing bugs for the server as planned - and we'll be sure to post an additional update as soon as we know what the long-term plan is going to be. But for now, that's all we've got. Stay tuned for future updates, on both this situation, as well as for those previously-mentioned new features and fixes!
  4. Hey, everyone! Over the past while, we've been hard at work starting a major website improvement project. The first part of that starts today - with a forums theme refresh and a redesigned About section. Theme Update Our new forums theme was designed to be a refresh of the previous 2021 theme. The overall design was good - but there were some areas where it needed some facelifts. Some of the changes you should notice include: Better display on lower-resolution displays Leveraging newer browser features like backdrop-filter to give some elements a glassy/acrylic appearance Redesigned navigation and user menus Improvements to Theme, Privacy Policy, and Contact Us links in footer Removing the all-encompassing page background to reduce the overly boxed-in look of the 2021 theme If you don't notice any changes, make sure you check the Theme menu and select Chaotic United - 2022 or Chaotic United - 2022 (Dark) at the top of the menu. About Section Redesign and Content Migration The other, more significant change is the redesigned About section. What used to be a collection of disconnected pages is now a unified, easy-to-use website section that allows you to view virtually any info about Chaotic United - past or present. You'll see a menu on the left side of the page that allows you to switch between the different pages. In addition to rewriting things like the Story and updating the Timeline, other pages which were previously very incomplete have been given some much-needed love. The credits page is now significantly more thorough, as we wanted to try and credit as much as humanly possible. Along with this, the staff list has been moved to its own page - where you can get an idea of what each member of our team does. We even rewrote the About text finally - after having been left unaltered for a number of years. The only page you might notice missing is the Veterans page - as this was left behind in favor of the Credits page. In retrospect, we feel that having a separate page for a handful of specific people, while honorable, is too prone to leaving out key players who we might be simply unaware of. As such, the Credits page is the only place you'll find their names going forward. This redesigned About section is the start of an ongoing process to unify the main website and forums content. This originally started with the Helpcenter a number of years back, and as time has gone on, future content has been developed within the forums - rather than the main website. This is another major step towards moving away from having a separated main website and forums. Eventually, only the homepage will be left - and when it's replaced, the entirety of the Chaotic United website will be under one system. Having this strange separation is jarring from an end-user standpoint - and makes backend management more difficult. Website Archives However, we also are real keen on legacy and historical preservation. That of course extends to the website. When the main website is finally retired, it won't be gone - rather, it'll be moved to a new home in the Chaotic United Archives - a new home for a collection of as much of CU's historic websites as possible. We'll be unearthing the oldest backups, dusting off the most forgotten bits of the website's history - and giving them their own spot to shine once again. You'll be able to view not only the current main website as it is right now, but you'll be able to view every iteration of the main website we've had since 2014. In fact, we might even try to have it go even further back. But I suppose we'll have to wait and see about that, won't we? We can't provide any ETA on this at the moment - likely the current main website will be the first, and as time goes on, other bits and pieces will be brought back. Wrapping Up And with that, I think we'll be wrapping up there. We've got a lot of exciting stuff planned - both for the site and the MC server. As per usual, if you find any hiccups with the site - let us know! We can't fix a problem if we don't know it's out there. Keep your eyes peeled for our next item on the list: Cross-server teleportation and warps for the MC server!
