    Ok...DEVS, please tell me how I get a mark on my account spposedly due to my characters name. My char name is DIMITRI. How the hell is that sexually offensive? So, a name that means, "Lover of the Earth" of Russian decent is inappropriate? This game is really going down the s-h-i-t-t-e-r...wow. A name i have had for years and I get flagged because supposedly it is inappropriate. The name Jeremy was very offensive to me...im glad she's gone because that is sexually offensive.

    LOL did they actually email you and tell you that they marked your account because they found that name sexually offensive?

    I know, I mean they are way too uptight on character names.

    They made me rename my character that was named Poopsmith.

    EVERYONE LOVES POOP HOW IS THAT OFFENSIVE!?

    If you were given a new name, then the name Dimitry was the problem. If not, then it will be your guild title...

    I dont have a guild title and our guild abbreviation is FFP. Felluca Faction Patrol. Our other pvp guild is called FHP Felluca highway patrol. I checked FFP and unless it is sexually inappropriate to have an abbreviation which stands for Family First Party, Freedom Front Plus, Fresh Frozen Plazma(that must be it, rofl), or the Frequent Flyer Program then it must be the name DIMITRI. So WTF are you doing DEVS??? Give me an answer. This is complete BULLS-HIT

    Here is copy of top of email:
    Violation: Naming Violation (Sexual Content)
    Date/Time: 11/13/2008 6:29:51 AM
    Shard: Great Lakes
    Character: Dimitri

    Not to mention I wasnt even in the game at 6:29 in the morning!

    That would be the date/time they actually booked you. You don't need to be online for that.

    Too funny.

    You get comparable customer service by standing on your porch with a newspaper rolled into a cone and yelling out for help, but somehow they managed to find time to locate your name, force you to change it, and send you an email notification that you are a bad guy.

    Yeah EA, customer service at it's finest.

    In addition to what has already been mentioned...
    1. Developers do not ban people, GMs do.
    2. EA is not going to publicly discuss the mark on your account, so posting about it here isn't going to help you any. Send e-mails to the GM review e-mail if there weren't instructions in the e-mail you got about how to get more information.
    3. In addition to Guild Name, Guild Title, and Character Name, it may have been a book title or a follower name.
    4. The 6:29 AM doesn't have a timezone stamp.

    K lets see now..the d is 4 the I 9 the M is 13 the I is 9 etc etc..

    Nope no idea why you would get a ban for that. But it is funny. Did ya kill a GM alt maybe and they got mad? I mean heck ya can drop the F bomb...but as long as you dont kill anyone..you wont get any black marks...

    Shrugs.

    Good luck in your venting and fighting :D

    The attack on Jeremy is uncalled for and inappropriate.

    Did you have any pets/summons? What kind of names did they have?

    Did you do anything else that is bannable? Maybe a GM accidentally clicked the wrong button.

    Even if it is a joke, there are some people who won't take it as such.


    As for the mark for a seemingly common name... any ideas I'd have for it have already been mentioned, so good luck with that

    As I see it, there are probably quite lot of easily offendable (ie. not so bright) people which would be offended by using male name for female.

    Actually I always found weird why she uses her second name instead of first. And if her second name is Jeremy, how crazy her first name would be?

    I dont have any pets/summons. I ride an ethereal. I even checked the weapons I carry in case I had one that was engraved with an inappropriate saying...but nope. I checked my journal, nope. I think this is UO's way of pushing me out the door. I am just lost as to what I could have done, lol. Probably was some vindictive GM out to get me. God save the Queen! I mean Jeremy.....so sexually offensive.

    The end is near, but fear not - it's the circle of life.

    UO's death will come when Darkfall is born.

    Spend your time worrying about people taking things the wrong way if you want. I myself perceived a veiled threat--who are these people who 'won't take it as such'? What are they going to do?

    The problem with the UO community is they have such low expectations, that they even praise and defend crap. Just copying and pasting 3-4 questions or bugs from the forums into a FOF a week was NOT doing an excellent job.

    I found the following online, but if this is the reason they marked your account then someone obviously needs to get a life! OR someone was just looking for some way to get you OR it was an accident. Seems pretty lame to me.

    What does dimitri mean?
    In: Name Meanings

    dimitri means greatness power and amazing sexual skills, the name is from the god dimitri louka the god of all greek gods he is above zeus

    Wow, complete bull****.

    Take a look at this guild roster on GL:
    http://my.uo.com/cgi-bin/guilds.pl?g=043c80ad3fa61dcb:3

    I can point out at least 5 char names that violate the ROC/TOS through either religion, drug, or sexual connotation.

    Getting banned for dimitri is ridiculous seeing that there are chars named "Black Jesus" and "Alah Rakbar" which ridicules religious beliefs.

    Who knows what the person who paged on you said the name Dimitri meant. I knew a person that had a GM request she changed her nighmares name from Black Beauty because someone had paged claiming it was a racist name.

    I googled the name and there were some websites mentioning a person using the nickname Dimitri being accused of sexual assault and teaching classes on seducing and enslaving women. That is about as close as I could get to finding anything wrong with the name.

    Looked at a baby name website and that name comes up as Greek and a variant of Demetrius: Earth-Lover. Of Demeter. Demeter is the mythological Greek goddess of corn and harvest. She withdraws for the part of the year her daughter Persephone must spend with the god of the underworld - the reason for winter. It also said it was a males name.

    I did look at your name backwards and unless I R Timid means anything I dont that was it either.

    I would have to say because of all the names I see in game based off of mythology, I would have guessed yours was for that reason as well and not for some perv in Canada.

    Veiled threat? I think you're reading a bit to deep into what I said. What I meant was that even if it was a joke, there'll be people who'll be offended by it, just like the classic Dumb Blonde jokes. I'm sure someone, somewhere will find them offensive.

    So please don't accuse me of veiled threats.

    I'm blonde and I swear I get a blonde joke daily from a co-worker or my family. They love to torment me. It's all in good fun, but you are right in that so many people these days get offended by something that you may not even realize you have done. I've noticed guys are more reluctant to open doors for me. One day I was talking to a guy I know and he said the reason was that some women take offense to it. Not this girl!!! You can open the door for me all day long :cheerleader:

    I don't think being allied with a guild with an inappropriate name would specifically get your account a mark.

    The really messed up thing is I got called and I quote "A cock sucking piece of child molesting **** stupid ***got" for killing this COM guy farming the deamons because I killed him. I paged cause I didnt like him because of how he turns into angry typing guy like that. Within 10 mins got the answer from the GM and he was still there, nothing happened for that.

    If you go to Luna or WBB on any shard you will see a char named Jesus Christ...

    Why they bother with you is beyond me...

    I did get a mark years ago in my younger wilder days with a char named dikgoesinya

    today he is Toby!
