Users who do not want to see certain conversations can activate the [ignore] function, which blocks all the conversations from the specific users. Users can also report any misbehavior or violations to Fantage for immediate attention by moderators.

Chat Customization

Parents can customize their children's communication privilege in Fantage by choosing one of the following chat options:

Fantage Chat Option
The [Fantage Chat] option allows chatting with other players throughout Fantage. Players write their own messages which are then processed by our automatic filtering system that prevents users from revealing personal information or using inappropriate or offensive language.

Safe Chat Option
The [Safe Chat] option allows your child to receive chats and/or messages from Fantage administrators and users who select the [Safe Chat] option only. [Safe Chat] offers pre-selected sentences and users can choose from them and display those messages to others. [Safe Chat] users cannot type by themselves.

No Chat Option
A strong safety feature that will help protect your child from any unwanted chat is the [No Chat] option. If parents choose the [No Chat] option for their child, the user will not see any chat dialog or messages, except for official announcements from Fantage administrators.
