I love BLF. But you need to be mature to be on it. If you're a parent and you complain about your children seeing "F-bombs", it's technically your fault because you allowed your children to have the key and put it in to register. Not for children 12 and under. Unless they're mature enough, which I wasn't when I was 11 and got banned.
And to a previous review from a parent, being banned from a server isn't Eric Hartman's fault. Get over it ffs
community is entertaining and reaches my sexual desires
All these parents- oh my gosh.
Can you let your child actually FACE the real world and its consequences? You know, if you don't let him learn about this stuff, he's going to find out about it eventually. Also, there is NO possible way of having your child not face this stuff in the internet. There are holes in safety and privacy all over the internet. If you can't put up with this, I have a small guide right here for you.
1. Find router
2. Unplug router
If your computer is a desktop:
1. Find ethernet cable
2. Unplug ethernet cable
For both guides, you will also need to:
1. Hide your kid from society
2. Lock all his doors
3. Make sure he has no friends
4. Make him depressed
5. Put him in shame for absolutely $#*!ing nothing.
I am 15 and I have had Blockland since early 2008. Overall it is a really awesome game and has a lot of great add-ons that are easily installed. I would not recommend online play for anyone under high school age though. Everyday more idiots are joining just to be stupid pests or hack your computer, I've seen it happen to people. There is endless cussing and inappropriate stuff being said. There are some good people out there but the Blockland community is just really messed up. The popular guys who beta tested the game or made a lot of add-ons are just such snobs. I will not name any names but they just hate being talked to, or asked a simple question by the "inferior noobs". Even though I would not consider myself a "noob" after being active for five years. I have earned some administrative positions but I haven't done anything spectacular for the game. I will give the forums a 3/5 for its add-ons but the dramas are just total crap...I'm not even gonna go there. The other reviews are right about it being forum-hell. The game itself deserves a 9.5/10. It just keeps getting better and better. I can't do anything about the scums out there but hey, this is a really stellar game!
Fun game, horrible developer & equally worse community. Angry 12-16 year olds badger younger children and cause a lot of grief. The maker of the game has no morals and is absolutely socially retarded when it comes to dealing with children.
Riddled with Cyberbullying, there's even a section dedicated to talking trash about other members.
A great place to chill with a community just small enough that you can know almost everyone you see, people there will accept you for who you are, be that a pedophile, rapist or even hispanic. Unless you are a $#*! in that case $#*! off.
This website is filled with kids pulling excuses out of the places you'd least expect. Sure, nice people will be on there, but everything else is just an eye sore. The Off-Topic section is filled with horrible lies, which lead into the Drama section. Drama is basically hell. You'll see older members picking on the new guys because they don't "approve" of them, when the new people are just trying to fit in. Even the new people might not fit in correctly, and they'll bash the regular people, just to cover up something that they did stupid. When I say they, I mean the new guys, they might make a horrible clan, instead of closing it after bad comments, they go on a whole rampage. It's like they're going "HULK SMASH!" and try to smash everyone's reputation. What I'm trying to say is, the blockland forums is just a horrible place to hang out, everyone is just mad and maybe even retarded, especially if you try to share your feelings, they'll just bash you, and put all of their hot steam on other people. If you want a simple place to hang out, blockland forums is not recommended. Seriously, who knew that a great game like blockland could have such a bad forum!
First of all, I am a parent. There is supposed to be a censored chat, and even though it was enables, the F word came through full and clear. The player that used that word also banned my son from his server and I had read the chat session and I can't see where my son did anything to warrant this behavior. I contacted Blockland support and they told me I didn't have my censor chat enabled (wrong) and that the player that banned my son could do so if he wanted (even though he violated rules himself) and even though they DID NOT review the chat session. In addition, he turned the tables around and accused my child stating that "normally younger children provoke players". This was not the case, they didn't even look into it and they ignore the fact that a safety measure that they have in place does NOT work. They got our money and they don't care. PARENTS....this is not credible behavior by a supposed site that should have safeguards in place. What other filth is being sifted through their supposed filters?
I think blockland is great! But the forum is well
if there was a fourm heven and hell this would be in hell
Flame war all the time! i aksed if i should get a ps3 and i got flamed.
oh well if you don't mine F-Bombs all the time go ahead!
Ive been with the community for over two years and I don't plan on leaving any time soon. Its the only forum of which Ive been able to stick with and grow friendships with other members. Although there are quite a few morons on the forum youll have fun flaming them and watching them attempt to fight back :D
Great community and some funny people, also has a ton of good content to download for the game.
The original poster of this review only gave it a bad review because he was banned for being a complete and total dumbass. As long as you have more intelligence than a shovel (and a candy necklace, for that matter), you'll be fine. The community can be harsh at times, but you learn to cope with it. You'll make some friends, and get to talk about anything (well, maybe not EVERYTHING) you want with a group of people who have a diverse array of interests. Did I mention it's the forum for one of the best building games on earth as well? Check it out if you get the chance, just be careful how you make your first impression, or you'll end up like trainman (That's bad). By the way, this is Regulith. <3
Great site, don't listen to the people who got banned from it.
I got banned for "spamming" of which i took no part of.
1 Questions & Answers
The only issue I came across in a brief look around was some concern over whether the language used in the chat rooms on either site was filtered or not. In the end the topic was so confused I never did find out for sure. But that's certainly one area of concern if you have small children and it's probably worth asking.
I don't know if you've considered this, but most people don't consider emailing the sites or companies they're interested in directly. Yet that can be the quickest way to get the information you need. If it were me I'd probably shoot off an email to the customer service folks at both sites, asking them to address any specific concerns you might have, and see what they come back to you with.
Otherwise, the most likely places to read comments from the users of online games are at fan forums, either independents or on the official home sites, if they have them. Single-topic games forums are usually popular and busy, especially if the games allow user-created modifications, or "mods" as blockland apparently does. There will definitely be "modders" out there chatting on forums about what they've developed. Try using "blockland forum" as a search term in your search engine of choice and see what comes up. You probably won't get the answers you're looking for as such, but reading the conversations of users should give you at least some indication of the type of people who populate it.
There is also YouTube, always a good resource on childrens' and adolescent issues, but then you'll likely have to wade through yards of inane and occasionally profane comments and you'll probably be no wiser at the end of it all. There are several pro-blockland and pro-roblox videos there, anyway.
You might also be aware that Lego itself is shortly to weigh in with its own online game, and that's a company that's going to want to protect its reputation. In under a year that could make both of the other games obsolete, so you might not be looking at a long term commitment to any one of them. No doubt as soon as the official Lego Online advertising hits the TV, the kids are all going to want to go there instead.
