Why is chat room not allowed?

Whitelist chats are allowed (i.e. those with a predefined list of words). Blacklists aren't for the reason above.

Why is chat room not allowed?

I has an idea for a bulletin, but i wish to know it is ok. There would be a master code that changes each 20 seconds, and if somebody enters it wrong, it changes. Only “added” people could see the cloud var "Master".
Ex: var Master = 19963
entered code: 02293
And it changes the code.

when [ ] key pressed
ask [Please enter 4 to 8-digit code.] and wait
if <[(answer)] = (Master)> then
ask [Enter bulletin message.] and wait
add (answer) to [list Bulletin]
else
set [Master] to [(join (join (pick random (1) to (10)) (pick random (1) to (10)) (join (pick random (1) to (10) (pick random (1) to (10)))]
end

Even if you banned bad words and “rude” words, you can use normal, kind words to insult people.

“You are not pretty”
“You are not amazing”
“Amazing? No”

Etc.

Our hero, our hero who claims a warrior's heart, I tell you, I tell you the Dragonborn comes. With a voice weilding power of the ancient Nord Art, believe, believe the Dragonborn comes. It's an end to the evil of all Skyrim's foes. You'll know, You'll know the Dragonborn's come. For the darkness has passed and the legend yet grows, Beware, Beware, the Dragonborn comes.

Curse-word sensors are banned because you are technically cursing in your project when you make a blocker, and when people click “See Inside”…

People can still bully without curse words, as @cobraguy pointed out.

And banning people wouldn't work either, because you can't be watching the chat 24/7.
I Think Scratch Team Looks At Your Projects!
if he's correct then
allow [He Shall Keep Talking]

So If They Can REPORT SOMEBODY WHO HAS A SWEAR OR BULLYING IN THE PROJECT…
if bad stuff has been sensed then
report [him]

Why not just make a chat room that allows a list of words into it and when it is a word it does not understand it will not send the message and people had already done that so yea chat rooms are allowed you just need to build them a certain way

What actually makes a cloud chatroom more dangerous than the comments box?

when green flag clicked
if <(language) = [English ]> then

say [Everything is Awesome!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [French ]> then

say [Tout est super-genial!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Italian ]> then

say [E meraviglioso!] for (2) secs
end
if <(language) = [Spanish ]> then

say [Todo es fabuloso!] for (2) secs
end

Comments can be reported and sent to the Scratch Team. There is no good way to moderate chatrooms.

My idea is this :

My idea for Chat rooms to be safe
Make a Admin list .
Then :
when green flag clicked[/quote]
if <(answer) > [30]> then
change [Warning v] by (1)
if <(Warning) > [2]> then
ask [A message is sent to a Admin to Delete you] and wait
add (join (username) [is Spamming]) to [list v]

end

end

And in case of rudeness :

when [space v] key pressed
ask [] and wait
add (answer) to [Admin Messeages v]

when [x v] key pressed
if <(username) = [Your username]> then

ask [Enter ID.] and wait
delete (answer) of [Chat v]
end

when [0 v] key pressed
if <[(username)] = [NASA-Space]> then

ask [Who do you want to remove] and wait
add (answer) to [banned v]
end

when green flag clicked
if <[banned v} contains (username)> then
stop [all v]

end

You should make a list that only can show up when an admin gets on!

maybe we could do this, I have no interest in chat rooms though so please don't use this!

The project could be able to have a list called users so…

when green flag clicked
add (username) to [users v]

so when a report button is clicked it asks for username and…

set [WARNING! v] to [1]

and it would add the warning to another list containing the usernames of people with one WARNING!, every time it's clicked, it searches in users, and if the username is found it searches in the other list, then adds it to a list called banned. If it doesn't find the user it alerts you you might of done the users name wrong, and if it isn't found in the second it is added to that one.

The only problem is they might have done nothing wrong!
We should make the code tell the admins!

What if ST just added a censor, just like in comments? On the Mineplex servers (A server network on Minecraft) you can type many bypasses and it just says “****”, so this will probably be possible in whatever scratch is made with. As about the “You are not pretty” or just using normal words, maybe younger users (That are more easily upset) could be unable to access cloud data with letters.

By the time an admin gets on the damage is long done, unless they use admins from every time zone, which is highly unlikely.

If you wanna know my honest opinion: They make cloud data limitless; (But add a censor just in case). If someone gets bullied and don't like it, either they have bad parents that don't monitor them on the computer, or if they aren't young they aren't mature enough to realise they shouldn't take comments online seriously. Really. These people ruin the internet for everyone, not just scratch, and take away our freedoms. I hope the ST are reading.

Since this topic hasn't seen a new post from the topic owner in a long time, I'm going to assume that it has been answered and close the topic. If it still is alive, the topic owner just needs to use the Report button to ask a mod to reopen it

For those of you with suggestions about how chats could be implemented safely, please use the Suggestions forum section. Check for existing topics first, please.
