Interesting suggestions, though I do not believe those words(separately) would be added into the lexicon. Manly because of events in the past that have lead to inappropriate chats.

Sorry if this decision causes trouble for those of you who have always acted appropriately, but we felt this was a warranted action at this time.

Even by removing some common words that could be used inappropriately, we still have well over 6,000 words in the chat lexicon, plus all the word endings that can be added (like -s, -ing, or -ed). Some people are complaining about the constant increase in word filtering, but you're able to type more (appropriate) words now than you've ever been able to type in the past. It really is too bad that we have to remove some words because a few people abuse them, but hopefully the chats will keep improving and will be family-friendly yet still fun.
Why have male/female & he/she been removed from the lexicon? - http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=39802

Well if it's a phrased chat, then there will be no abuse.

It was a great idea to make the phrased chat box an option, and even greater to let the community help out! I have a few words that, after reading through the list on the first post, I have found left out:

Greetings:
Salutations!
Good day!
Hi [player’s name]!
Hai!

General Responses:
If you want to help get future episodes or updates to the game, buy something from the store!
I know where the human impact signs are! Follow me!
The human impact signs are at [place].
Yes, I’m still here!
Yes, I think [player] is still here.
No, I don’t think [player] is still here.

General Questions:
What’s the URL for the WolfQuest forums?
How can we help to get future episodes?
Do you know where the human impact signs are?
Are you still there?
Is [player] still there?

Exclamations:
Wonderful!

Hunting/Eating:
Can I eat first?
I’ll eat last.
Which elk should we take down?

Animals:
Lone wolf

Exploring:
Let’s run to [place]!
Let’s walk to [place].
Wait up!

Friends:
I’m pretty sure we’ve met before!
Will you add me to your friends list?
I added you to my friends list.

Partings:
Cya!

If some of these were already suggested, feel free to disregard them. :3

Because we are no longer taking suggestions, I'll lock this topic. If you would like to comment more about the phrased chat, please check out some of the applicable topics in the General WolfQuest Discussion forum.
