    Agreed. As a fully grown adult playing Minecraft, I should be able to create signs saying whatever I want and name my worlds whatever I want.

    I should be able to use cuss words in my single-player world without them being censored the same for multiplayer i make sure that everyone's over the ages 18

    Being condescended to as an adult is ridiculous, even more so in a singleplayer world. The game is already connected to your Xbox account, if being PG5 is such a problem just tie it to parental control.

    I find on Minecraft Bedrock for android, the censor is just plain not helpful. If I post an innocent word that gets censored, it only shows it as censored to the other players not myself, so I don't even know WHAT it was that I typed that got censored. If Mojang wants to allow censored versus uncensored chat, make it so that hosts can restrict play to players of a certain age (similar to how twitch does things perhaps?) then restrict access to the host, realm, BDS world based on the age specified in the users' xbox account settings.

    Sure, users can lie when they create their accounts, but for most parents, this should work fine and allow adults to not be treated like children on 18+ game world servers and realms.

    The fact of the matter is that, as we see in the news these days, these companies are taking it upon themselves to dictate morals and speech down to the users. Microsoft and Mojang have no place dictating down to us what is acceptable speech. This needs to be dealt with much more seriously than it currently is. This is a farther reaching issue than just this game. I believe the term is "product intervention".

    This filter is so over the top and dumb.  I am trying to build a memorial and need to put a 4 different names on wood signs and 3 names are censored....  Aparently James Allred is now ##### Allred and similar for the other 3 it has #### for the letters or just plain deletes it all.

     

    I made the White House in one Realm  Tried to put 1600 Pennsylvania Ave Washington DC and apparently thats profanity also cause couldnt do it

    so yeah give us a way to shut off or do something please

    I wholeheartedly agree with this.

    Minecraft is a game kids play, not a kids game.

    I agree not having the option is ridiculous.

    especially if my nickname DX3M, is considered a curseword

    Matthness another alias is as well

    words like torturechamber, as i'm having a medieval build is apparently also cursing.. or inappropiate...

    it's very silly...

    I wish we could select words to censor ourselves or the opposite (so selecting words/phrases to un-censor)

    I would want this to be an option too. My friends and I have discovered that the word that wasn't really a curse was censored and it sorta got in the way of our naming scheme for the area we made. We are all adults and have no plans with playing with kids so hopefully this becomes an option.

    I agree, its not that much of an inconvenience now since I usually only use voice chat, but before I got a headset I relied heavily on the chat and signs. Both would censor out my name, making it difficult to claim my own territory while playing with my friends. Either way, some people prefer to use swear words or talk about something using swear words and the filter is just annoying. I hope they add an option to turn it off.

    Hello, Thank you for taking the time to read this. Ive been a minecraft user for about 10 years now. I love all the new content that the mojang team has been working on and putting out! My ONE complain is the restrictions made by the content filtering. I understand making the game more safe for kids, but at the same time, im not a kid, i Pay for my own realm, and all my friends who play with me are over 20, i feel like there should be a setting i can switch on my realm to allow profanity. And im not like "hey i wanna cuss cuss cuss". Its literally ruined a 30hr build i created.  ( back Before the content filtering was added i Created a Cards Against Humanity game in my world, i spent alot of time creating the cards in the Books and creating a system of card shufflers. It came out awesome.... But now its useless because half the cards are xxxxxxx out. Please Please consider adding in profanity filter settings cause not everyone who enjoys your game is 12years old. Thanks!

    There is no point in censoring words while on single player. It makes sense online since there's a lot of kids but not when you're alone in your world. Who the f*** is going to see that or care?!

    I whole-heartedly agree with this. A group of friends and I have been building a city for years now and the stupid censor blots out or deletes every road sign, random other things I try to type, “No Drugs, Alcohol or Tobacco” signs, “No Smoking” signs, aircraft names at our Air Museum, such as the Convair B-58 Hustler (because I guess hustler is just awful) and more. I hate this and just want to be able to turn it off. Most of the stuff it censors is completely unwarranted and I don’t see the issue. What’s the difference in a kid reading something on a sign and the same kid going and turning on the tv and watching a movie that’s rated for adults? Controlling language restrictions like these are terrible and only serve to annoy or anger people who are just trying to build a world that isn’t just a bunch of sunshine and rainbows.

    You can not write the word gay on a sign which is very homophobic because you can write straight on a sign just fine. homophobia has no place on my minecraft world and it is time for a change.

    they censor 'swallow' and 'inside'... those are just words to me, nothing inherintly bad. "I was inside a cave, and it feels like it might swallow me alive any second." "It's inside the left chest." "chew and swallow" i know they can be used badly, but so can every word if you're up for the task. Lemme write my silly little novels without having to dodge censor bars. >:(

    Cursing is a cardinal sin.

    Not sure as for Realms, but this should be a feature for dedicated servers!

    If a host or realms owner chooses to turn it off, a warning should be displayed to anyone joining that they may see adult content. The censoring shouldn’t be forced, and should be optional, however enabled by default.

    The chat filter really isn't good for young kids. Try explaining to a 5 year old why their "cum with me" messaged turned into "*** with me". The only people who need this feature are J.W.s or some other group of prudes who cant handle the thoughts they get when they see a certain word.

    I understand that the filter is forced by console platforms such as Nintendo Switch and XBox. That's their choice and you Mojang can't do anything about that. I fully understand that.

    What I don't understand is that it affects every single platform, including iOS, Android, and Windows 10. It is even forced on a local world on iOS whose "Multiplayer Game" option is explicitly turned off. Literally no one but me can join the world, and my signs are still censored in such a silly way. There is no excuse for this. Console platforms have absolutely nothing to do with single-player worlds on a non-restrictive platform.

    I know you have disabled the hard-coded chat filter on featured servers and have decided to use a smart filter on them. It was surely a good move. But then you left Realms, single-player, local multiplayer, and non-featured servers in this dire situation. For years.

    Please, Mojang, please do something about this. This is plainly ridiculous. I have a proposal if it helps:

    1. Local worlds on non-restrictive platforms should be completely free from any sort of censorship, if their world setting "Multiplayer Game" is disabled.
    2. Local worlds on non-restrictive platforms whose "Multiplayer Game" is enabled should have an option to enable the chat filter. If the filter is disabled, players on restrictive platforms (like Switch) should not be able to join those worlds.
    3. Realms and dedicated servers should have the same option and the restriction.

    As an adult, I should be able to say what I want and have it not be censored. They should allow those who want to see mature text have the option to. Just add a toggle in chat or video settings

    This REALLY bothers me. On Java I can say/do whatever i want but on bedrock I can't? even on a private, singleplayer world? to be honest it seems kind of against the core message and focus of the game: being able to do whatever you want.

    they censor words that don't even make any sense in my realm, like"salvian" "cedarwood point" and "north to main rode" like what? they also censor the word gay which is just flat out homophobic. gay isn't a cuss word anyway.

    Censorship in a game like this is genuinely understandable, however, it’s becoming a little overwhelming, im not sure what I can and can’t write anymore in books, im trying to create a country where people live in survival and everyone who lives in my country gets a state issued ID, but, as of last week “ID” seems to get censored, along with a huge amount of other nonsensical words that aren’t swears, including names, but here’s the worst part, it’s one thing when it blocks out the word with “###” but it’s a whole other when it randomly decides to delete an entire page because it dosnt agree or it decides to get rid of all the spaces and paragraphs in it, my entire survival realm and country and friends country, our world we have built over 3 years, is effectively crippled as it relied on books, and now it’s impossible to write in them without some sort of hiccup regardless of the books context, please fix the issue or make it an option to toggle censorship for non child accounts, please, I want my beloved world to function again

    Yes, Of course we should be allowed to have parental rights over our own, private unsolicited server we call home. I play on Minecraft every now and then, and never had a complaint over the years of updates until THIS. This has caused me stress. I used to join Minecraft servers full of people on Java edition. I would ONLY go on servers that were not censored. If they were, I would leave. There’s something about being on a server that’s censored that takes away all the fun. I am an adult, I shouldn’t have to be censored and quite frankly, neither should the 6 year old cussing at the tv screeen. . Let us have the option to decide if we want censorship ON PRIVATE SERVERS At the LEAST! Love u mojang

    I tried to type on a sign on my realm
    I wanted to say "it takes 20 minutes for a cow to grow up"
    It censured "it takes" please explain why that would not be allowed we cant even use normal English in the game to communicate!
    On a realm signs are important to leave messages for other people in your community its just fustrating
    It wouldnt be hard to make it a toggle option for the realm owner. i wish i had more options like this for my realm

    I am trying to make a book on potions, but it sensors the words 'redstone'/'redstone dust' and 'glowstone'/'glowstone dust'. I have tried to work around it multiple times, but the inability to click around the page to edit has made it a huge chore as well. I can't figure out what the issue is with Minecraft's own item words. It also randomly deletes pages if they don't fill up the whole page and have one of those words censored.

    My unnamed iron sword was censored for some reason, and I do think it's kind of ridiculous that a game that anyone of any age can play is being molded into a game for 12-year-olds
