WQ Coordinator wrote:So now's the time to discuss. Can anyone give any reasonings as to why they think a phrase already listed should or should not be part of this phrased chat? If you still have more suggestions, you can add them, but we definitely have more than enough at this point.

I looked through the phrase chat; and I think the words listed are reasonable. However, I am not to sure about the word fog on it's own - as I don't know how it would be used as a single word.

Perhaps if it would be used; having it in a sentence. Such as something involving the cattle ranch ect.

Do we really have to choose these words instead of typing? I like typing instead

Please do not go off topic. And read the Chat Lexicon FAQ for answers to your questions.

This phrased chat will only be an option in 2.5.

The Host should be able to choose this option, too. And children younger than 14 (or whatever) can't enter the game.
Also it will give players from other nations the chance to communicate with each other on their languages. WQ is played all over the would, not only in USA or England.
I LOVE THIS IDEA!

I'm spanish and, a lot of times, when i was chatting with somebody in the multiplayer, I didn't understand a lot of words (lol) and I was like: m..can you repeat me, please?
And I think there's more people like me that want this option too!

And optional think could be that you canwrite with the language that you want :D

THANK FOR POSTING THIS CANA! And sorry for spelling mistakes :mrgreen:

Despite the fact that we all wish people were good as adults/teenagers, that's not true. Age of bad MP players isn't only those who are subject to COPPA. Just because you're 13 or 14 or whatever doesn't mean you're good. It's just as likely for a bad WQ player to be 60 as it is for them to be 9. Plus, people would be inspired to lie about their age more to get into free chat, and requiring a parent e-mail doesn't always work either, as anyone can have two email addresses, and enter one as their own and one as that of their parents, and then the parent e-mail field of that user's registration becomes worthless. I wish just as much as anyone that there was some magic spell that made you turn good when you were a certain age, but there isn't, so implying that "if we let only people of certain ages enter _________________, it will be safe", is a bad thing to imply. Bad people can be of any age, and people can lie when registering too. Having age restrictions or means to contact parents(except for those required by law) is pretty worthless in my opinion. In the long-term, it does little or nothing to solve the problem, as it does not significantly remove vulnerability to inappropriate behavior.

I agree with jaguartail. on some points. I agree that if a player wasn't a certain age or along that lines that the pack creator could choose the age ex: 9-12, 13+. But back to the main subject. I suggest that you could say:
When will you be back on?
Can you add me as a freind?
Where's your favorite area on the map?
What's your favorite map?
Do you want to join my pack?
Have you explored over here before?
When did you join WolfQuest?
Sorry if one of them was repeated, it was hard to remember what everyone else said. Anyways, I hope these helped! :idea:

Ok, so he phrases are like you start to type something and the phrases show up in a seperate box? I just was wondering how exactly it would look and am curious if you would release some pictures of them in the gam if possible... I know you most likely won't, but I was just wondering.

I'd be happy to release some pictures once it's actually programmed into the game. I'll try to give more game updates as I get them, and I'll try to include things like that.
Thanks for the avatar, Silverness!

I think these are all great ideas but typing is sometimes a good way to communicate. In wolf Quest 2.5 a chat box should be an option for the host of the game. If there is no chat box i am afraid it will become hard to communicate.... The pack talks to know what they all want to do and each others names as wolves and because in the wild wolves communicate with barks and growls and also howling i think we should be able to talk too even if it means adding more to the list of words we cant say. In wolf Quest 2.5 we should also be able to growl, bark, whimper, and snarl not only just howling and whining while bowing.
These are only sugestions! Thanks! :D
