Just a side note - you can not post on these forums if you are a ftp or preferred status account. Trust me I know as I called Bioware to ask about this very thing a couple of months ago when I started as ftp turned preferred. I ended up subscribing and am still a subscriber, for now.

I agree to a degree that the community in this game, at least on the Ebon Hawk server, is horrible. The general chat is full of people insulting people left and right, tossing around racial and sexual slurs and overall pretty childish and immature. It makes me wonder sometimes if the majority of people playing this game are in fact kids and teenagers or just a bunch of really immature "adults". Regardless it is really sad.

I've been playing MMO's since the late 1990's including The Realm by Sierra Online, Ultima Online, Shadowbane, Lineage II, Everquest, Everquest II, Vanguard, LoTRo and now SWTOR and this has to be the worst community that my wife and I have ever come across. The best by far has to be Vanguard, hands down.

We've both reported many, many names and I can not even count how many people that we've reported for harassment and using certain words that should never be used on a public channel no matter how old you are and I will be quite honest... Bioware could care less.

We add names to our ignore lists when we report them for names and/or behavior and not a single one has ever been changed, deleted or whatnot. Heck the naming policy states you can not have any titles in your name and I see Lordthisorthat all over the place. We report them too, nothing happens.

We have talked about cancelling a few times but we are not sure what we would like to do yet. She is on a recurring subscription but I only subscribe two months at a time and the community will be one of the deciding factors when it comes time to renew again or look elsewhere to spend our time and money.

That is all that I have to say today.
