Can I swear in Minecraft?

If Minecraft has taken over your kids and you hardly know who they are or what they’re talking about anymore, you’re in good company. But, while you may love that play helps build 21st-century skills like creativity, innovation, and collaboration, your kids’ obsession can be overwhelming. Perhaps most baffling is that every waking moment they’re not playing Minecraft, they’re in front of YouTube watching Minecraft.

For fans – and they are legion – Minecraft videos on YouTube are a huge part of their enjoyment of the game. There are tutorials (for ideas of new things to create), “Let’s Play” videos (footage of people playing games), challenges (new game ideas to try), mod showcases (showcasing cool things that kids can download to modify their Minecraft worlds) and more.

Using the Curse Forge launcher, Minecraft players can conveniently download and install the No Chat Reports mod in just one step. With that done, fans need to set up a profile for the No Chat Reports mod via the Curse Forge app. After setting up a profile, launch the game with the No Chat Reports mod by launching through the Curse Forge app. Fortunately, the mod supports Forge and Fabric; all players need to do is download the version for their respective mod loader. Conversely, those who prefer to install No Chat Reports manually will need to place the mod file in “C:UsersPCAppDataRoaming.minecraft”. The “PC” will of course be replaced with whatever the player’s PC system name is.

What the No Chat Reports mod does is remove the cryptographic signatures attached to each message sent in the chat. Once these signatures have been removed, it becomes impossible for Mojang or other Minecraft moderators to track a player’s chat messages. Therefore, the association between your chat history and your Minecraft account is broken, making player reporting irrelevant. While it’s unclear whether the Minecraft development team is working on a workaround for players who install and use No Chat Reports, those who don’t like the new chat moderation system are strongly encouraged to download the helpful mod by Aizistral. Of course, player reporting may have a place in toxic player environments, but fans disagree that this feature should be forced into their game.

Whitelisting

You can divide public Minecraft servers into two types:

  • Whitelist servers are protected by a whitelist, which is a list of usernames allowed to join to the server. To join a whitelisted server, you need to request that your Minecraft username be added to the whitelist. Typically, this involves filling out a form and waiting a few hours or days. Most servers require you to enter separate applications for you and your child. Once you are whitelisted, you join the server as described above.
  • Rogue servers don’t have a whitelist, which means that anyone can join the server by simply entering the server address into their Minecraft client, as shown above.
