    piratesoffline.org? that just redirects to here... lol
    anyway, I don't think that PotCO is happy about people talking about other websites. I've also mentioned the forums to other people in the game, but whenever I say "com" in a chat, the other people never see the chat at all. Now, I've never said the whole website at once, like I would say "pirates forums . com"
    Later I tried doing "c o m" instead of "com," and people could then see the chats
    So don't say websites exactly like they are, try separating the words

    Yeah it's just easy enough to separate the words. Oh and I don't think that they like "website" either...

    So how long are you banned for?

    Hmmm....I'm starting to think they have a quota to meet or something. Maybe different people just find extreme ways to meet that quota?

    This takes me by surprise, I am sorry to hear that Hector. The reason we offered the .org alternative was so that Disney's sensitive filter wouldn't block out "com," many people were having issues with that. Probably won't help much with your account, but I will give customer support a call tomorrow. I have never heard of them banning for sharing links to relevant fan-sites that are "family-friendly."

    Maybe not, but by that age I would hope they have some common sense.

    I think we had another thread going earlier that tells about different ways people get past the censorship to communicate the site name. I know I have done it a lot without any problems.

    The reason why they dont want you to share sites with others is just because they want to keep kids under the Disney security umbrella (dont worry I choke and laugh saying that). One of the guild members of the people you were talking to also might have reported you.... that of course negates anything we do to try get pass censorship. They also seem to be "adapting" faster to things such as glitches and work a rounds. The new people are doing research...lol.


    Really sorry to hear that you got banned for this especially it being a fan site though...

    I do believe that, but at the same time I find it a bit silly, considering there are guilds with names of other fansites.

    I agree with you, I also edited my post just after you made your post..LOL.
    I think its more of a show rather than to get something that actually works or anything... so that if something does happen they can say those are the measures that are put in place... they may also have an approved site list and where that domain is new they might not have checked it out under that name yet.

    That's why I think they have Speedchat. Quite frankly, if people want to evade the Disney censors or Speedchat dictionary, they will find a way.. but like you say, just in case, they are not liable.
