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

I want to learn Javascript to create a custom menu, but I don't really know where to start.
One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
anyone know of a place I can promote my game? sorta like game awards but for indie devs, like a place where I can drop a trailer and like stir up some hype
