    [SOLVED] monsterz why the f-word in a kids game?

    I downloaded monsterz from the repository but when I am finished playing a round, it scrolls .... is licensed under the do what the (f-word) you want licensed.... at the bottom of the games screen.

    I think this is inappropriate in a kids game.

    Any ideas on how to fix it?

    regor210: I would both contact the original developer, file a bug against the package in Launchpad and tell a MOTU or someone. This should definitely get fixed in the Ubuntu repository, I agree with you.

    You probably talking about the license WTFPL.

    I think in that case it's really up to the guys that created the game if they want to change their license or not (or use the acronym WTFPL, or put the license in a separate text file).

    I agree that it's pretty dumb to do something like that.

    Why cut your kids off from the real world like that? Is it so you don't have to teach them what the word means? Do you really think it will make any difference? They will just feel silly when the other kids at school have a larger vocabulary than them.

    I laugh every time I see stuff like this. It is like the parents are too afraid to introduce their kids to the real world. So they make up lies like the tooth fairy and the Easter bunny, haha!

    Sure, lies are better...

    My parents were honest with me right from the start and I respect them for that more than they will ever know. When other kids were talking gibberish about what Santa brought them for x-mas I knew the truth and laughed at their ignorance.

    It might already be fixed by the developers: The changelog on http://sam.zoy.org/monsterz/ informs that version 0.7.1 'removed scary language from the title screen'. The repos have version 0.7.0, so you probably have an outdated version of the game.
