Working on a crafting game where the focus will be able to sell you items you craft to other players of the game and sell also them item you get from hunting monsters. I ha e a good amount of the backend server side work done and I was thinking in adding in a chat room to the game. My questions is does.any one know if if I have a chatroom I the game if the chats have to be saved to the sever for anything if like a later is harassing some one via chat. If the chat room does need to be saved I will build in fourms over customer chat room

"have to"? I am not a lawyer, but I don't know of any legal requirement that chat rooms save logs, and nothing came up when I Googled it.

I would contact a lawyer or other provider of legal advice, rather than a forum.

Out of curiosity, what did you find saying yes? I even came upon Stack Exchange, a large professional site, that explicitly says they don't log chats under certain threshold conditions...and I haven't found anything that says you do (which you would expect to find if there were any actual law).

This is always the correct answer for anything legal.

On cell will link back but if a person makes a threat to themselves or others it needs to be reported and log for proof

Ugh. The one time I forget to save every hour or so is also the day my computer crashes. That's life!
Even though I spent 100's of dollars on my game already. I think I might just have to give it away for free. Since I haven't heard back from people if I could use some of their graphics. Even from a global mod here. Maybe I can make a donation thing.
you know, some days you get resentful that game dev is even considered a "fun job" and other days it's like, welp, time to roll up my sleeves and code these molotov cocktails
If you suck at playing trumpets, that is probably why.
Been sick with a stomach virus for seven days now. Not going to work tomorrow because I'm still contagious according to my doctor.
