    ok.. the game has an obscenity filter players can use..
    the game is rated teen..
    there are much worse things on TV..
    this is the 21st century..

    Could you guys pretty please take out the ASS filter on engraving and vendors?!

    ya can't even type in assassin or compassion with out it either being filtered or disallowed!!

    It's just plain ridiculous!

    Why do I have the feeling this thread will go down in history as the T & A thread?

    Everybody likes a little T&A! But honestly the naming filters seriously need a revamp, When 12 year olds can say the C-Word in a movie, ass isn't an issue anymore...

    Aslong as it was revamped in minor tones, I always wanted a mule char named Ass.

    Association either. I wanted to make a trade association guild once... was quite annoyed by the filter.

    I can´t name my vendor "relic fragments".
    And I don´t even know what swear word is in that...

    Heck, when even the government can call it´s latest war T W A T ( the war against terrorism ), and we have blood, dismemberment and murder in our quaint little game, then why not swear words?

    Yes, but it looks like lame "leet-speak" from the early 1990's. :(

    Let's also review professional titles. I can't have Shepherd in my guild title, what gives? :confused:

    I voted the no option because my adopted step-foster puppy was killed by the over use of the word ass, we'll miss you ass clown...

    I forgot all about guild titles! Long time ago when I was a guild leader I was really frustrated that alot of the member titles I wanted to make I couldn't because of professional names being disallowed!
     
  18. There are enough asses in game, do we really need any more?

    If it were just the word 'ass' then I would just be mildly irritated by the unnecessary forced censorship which us Americans tend to have problems with. You know the whole Constitution thing.. which, by the way, also wouldn't be allowed.. ConsTITution...

    The whole point of this isn't the word ass. It's the words that have it in it. plus as pointed out other words that are disallowed because of letters in them or profession.

    Professions from Age of Shadows on, you can use in guild title. Ninja, Samurai, Mystic, Arcanist, Paladin.. etc.. but none of the old professions.


    How sad is it that I can't set this guild title for someone -
    "Bard of Compassion"
    bard is disallowed (old profession), and compassion is disallowed (ass)


    but I CAN set the guild titles
    "Paladin of Honor"
    "Throat Slicing Ninja"
    "Crap Mystic"

    And yes, I did test them all. Tell me, what is wrong with this picture?!?!

    except for the fact America is too politically correct due to everyone getting offended due to something someone said...

    Odd .. could have sworn just recently the President called someone a jackass... maybe it's only politically correct if you add the word jack.....

    On the flip side though, there's absolutely no filters on the guild abbreviations, which means literally any 3 or 4 letter "bad" word is totally possible...

    Here is one I don't get the word "mage" before i went to cats my friend couldn't give the title mage and you still can't.

    He also tryied to make a guild called "The White Knights", with no racism he just liked wearing white clothing and though the concept of a uniformed guild would be cool this was about 2 or 3 years ago at least. I guess I get this one it can sound racist but he tryied using the word "White" in general and you can't.

    But seriously the word Mage that makes no sense.

    you can't spell harassment with out Ass.
