Clan channels should be private channels, they are viewed only by imms
and the clan members, why the hell is it under the public channel
category, it is in no way a public channel, this is stupid! make clan
channels the clans channel and make them have their own rules whether
you can say certain things on it or not

clan channels should be private
cuz i mean, it's private to only those in the clan
and maybe should have adult flag if wanted
sometimes u gotta tell your clanmates what happened
and vent it all out :)
so you won't accidentally vent it on chat!

Clan channels are not considered private for the following reason:
We have no age restriction for players to join clans. Now while you
may say "but joining a clan is strictly voluntary", it's the same
as deciding to play this mud. Besides, a little decency and civility
never hurt anyone. We'd like to keep the maturity level up, even if
age restriction can't be enforced.

Just to point out..
There is a "flame channel" on this "other" mud I play.
And I quite freqently will see bursts of profanity
mainly long strings of the f-word
for no reason, and when on person starts this, general
4 or 5 join in... It's not exactly directed toward a mobile
or another player.. it's one person making an immature
outburst simply because they can... and everyone joining in.

the clan guildmaster chooses who he lets in the clan and who he doesn't
if he doesn't wanna let some pansy weener who is offended by swearing in
he won't let them in, it's that simple, clan guildmasters should have
control over their own channels, the imms shouldn't have control over OUR
channels, let us do what we want with them :P

sorry but i'm sick and tired of getting warned for saying a curse word
on my channel when i know perfectly well that no one cares, cuz they
swear just as much as me... and getting a warning for it! it hasn't
offended anyone, why should you get in trouble for doing something that
causes no one any harm whatsoever

I must agree with Zaknafein on this Kaige. If we know each and every
member of our clan and their age in RL and what they find to be
acceptable language, etc. then we are truly a clan, in the manner it shoul
be. I mean it is too darned easy to band a clan together ofr no reason at
all here, the meaning of a clan being a group of like minded individuals
seems to be dying here. So I will agree again, please let the clan, and
the GM decide what is acceptable on our clan channels. If a clan
member has a problem with what is said, they should talk to the
person who said it and ask them not to say it again. A clan member should
respect that, and if they do not, the offended individual can bring it to
the attention of the GM. that is the way clans are supposed to work.
what is the point of having a clan channel if we cant count on having
a private conversation with our clanmates? I personally consider
it spying when an Imm listens to the clan channel. I think of it like
they were spying on me in a room on the MUD, illegal, and rude.
just my two cents, I still love you Kaige

I just want to say, my alt suggested this umm a month ago, or less
and Sandra said something about the crazy laws they have in texass
and thats why they cant let us do that, and if the mud gets sue'd or
closed, where will poor lil me go? :p
(tickle sandra, See? it sunk in my thick skull, go me, and it only took
15000 times of hearing that too ;P)
i also want to agree with what sibwarra said about bringing it to the
attention of the Gm if they have a problem..
but then again, im a GM and i basically feel like an induct trigger ;)
so, dont mind me, im just wanting more gm power! how about starting with
the slay command...?

Do post those laws for us again?
I have no way to prevent people from swearing in any room.
A Clan channel is far more limited and less 'public' than
any one room in the mud.

Is there a list of words that constitute as profane?
I would think -=Effin Pissed=- would be considered one.
but then.. that's just my opinion.
