FIX THE CHAT RESTRICTIONS! Ease up on the filters for chatting with your team.
Tippytoes, Sorry, I didn’t mean to post in this forum
The rules of the game indicate not to share personal information like addresses, etc. to keep anonymity and safety. There are trigger words that may be used in a different and safe context, but the computer is just responding to the word. As frustrating as it is, I agree on the side of caution. There are ways around it and at least the asterisked word let’s you know what you did wrong. It keeps things from getting vulgar as well. Teams have people from all over and you don’t know that everyone will be respectful or responsible.
Yeah. Every time I type, 'Call me,' it blanks that out.
Pink puffy unicorn, I agree
(I just wanted to type “pink puffy unicorn”—nice name!)
PS. Although the asterisks are an improvement from the “dark days” months ago, the most recent chats totally rejected for me involved numbers and the word brillance.
One solution for numbers is using short forms (ie 1k for 1000, etc).
Another solution is just separating the numbers into their own chat bubble so the conversation carries over onto multiple line. This also works for other complex chats where it may be hard to figure out what word/phrase is causing the problem. I have no clue why, but separating out the exact same phrases into their own chat bubble will work, but written in one chat bubble, it won’t!!!!!!
Keep having fun—I hate seeing a sad pink puffy unicorn 😊

I agree it very annoying when ur chat gets rejected because of an “offensive” words
Looking for a team? Consider joining CleanSlate. We have 22 million brilliance with 33 people. We are looking for great players that are willing to put a lot of points up during tournaments. No minimum now but that might change!
A team with almost no filters is called
There is a Brilliance restriction, but we make exceptions!😊
While they’ve gone to accepting every chat post & inserting asterisks for their taboo words, I learned very early to copy my text before trying to send it. That way when it was getting bounced back to me (maybe some ppl still have this version of the app; ppl on my team have dif versions of the app), I just paste & tweak what I think may be upsetting chat. This sometimes worked right from the jump but other times it took a while. Sometimes I could say the exact words but would have to send it in one sentence at a time. If anyone is still experiencing bounce back, try copy paste so you don’t have to remember just what you said but rather can adjust it after you paste. Just a thought; trying to be helpful to those out there still dealing with persnickety chat.
I totally agree. I really dislike typing a paragraph only to have it rejected because of a word like [the other word for photo].
WHY WOULD THEY DO THAT
Lmao 😂 I think they really need to do that or there will be lots of people putting 1 Star ⭐️ on this game 😔😏🙄🤔😮😦😲🙂😩😞
Charlie 🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️🤦🏼♀️ Hi ho Silver, awayyy! How did I miss that? I’m usually great at trivia. I’m getting old- and now slinking away in embarrassment 🙇🏼♀️ Urgh, very fast slinking into self loathing as I knew it was Roy’s horse. *covers pulled back up over head*
The Lone Ranger's horse was named Silver. Trigger was Roy Rogers horse. But whatever...
I find it interesting that we can’t use the word wine in the chat, yet it is a word in the puzzle
Ty TippyToes. I agree with Tippy- they don’t read anything said here & you need to go directly to contacting devs. I created a topic about the dumbed down dictionary & it still hasn’t shown so I guess they didn’t approve it.
I did however, get another email, this time polite & coherent, when I contacted them about the dumb down dictionary. She apologized profusely & said it seems some players had their app default back to original dictionary but that they are working to fix this and add more dictionaries as quickly as they can. This email was from Sarah & she was very nice & addressed my concerns adequately.
Sorry to hi jack a topic on chat restrictions but also agree that innocent words on their own have either always been flagged from the jump or where in a post that gets reported repetitively therefore main words in the post are just all asterisks now. I’ll deal with that rather than it refusing to post it at all. We’ve found creative ways to get around taboo words. But I don’t know if they’ll ever let up based on what Tippy(?) said about protecting the younger ones or threats etc.
Captnemo, send the game makers an email under the the “send us a message” section on the main support page voicing your concerns. They don’t read these forum topic areas.
Please ease chat restrictions. It is getting to be excessive, hindering team communication and team cooperation, especially during tournaments. Thank you.
Lee-Ann Kenyon, Racial, some violent, vulgar words amongst others are filtered in addition to words that get repeated reported by players. Yes, the chat is “biased” in that sense, but racial and religious words can also be the most abused, too.
They are protecting us from ourselves and them from complaints as well as being able to maintain the rating for the game.
It is frustrating for those of us who try to act responsibly, but, unfortunately, not everyone does.
I wouldn’t take the chat restrictions too personally because EVERYONE can find something about the restrictions that annoys them or makes them feel personally targeted.

I went to use the word negro and it wasn't accepted as a star word. This seems biased to me.
