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

Redesigning characters after such a long time feels great. Makes me excited to work on an old game again.
