Devs, why can't you name a pack animal "Origin"?!

    What is so wrong with Origin? I was sending things to the rares fest from Origin and wanted to put that in the packie's names (too many animals from too many shards). It gives the message that "Origin" is not very nice.

    I know there are bigger issues for devs to deal with, but jeez.

    Perhaps they added it to the filter years ago as people had pets called 'Origin suck' ?

    Other than that, No idea. :(

    There are lots of annoying things about that filter.

    I tried naming a mount 'Titus' and it was blocked because of the first three letters in the name. A couple days later I was using the armor engraving tool to name a breastplate I have 'The Cuirass of the Lion.'

    ...It showed up as 'Cuir*$$ of the Lion.'

    Can turn off the filter. Maybe add exceptions as well.

    Just use a zero in place of the O.

    I put a lot of work into setting up a Lore accurate scene (and BOD storage!) for my new custom house... but can you spot the odd one out, Virtue Fans?!

    Thanks for all of the replies, everyone. I understand now. =)

    Draconi, it's good to see you again. I wish you were still our fireman. I hope you have something exceptional in the works.

    Always a fan of yours,

    Draconi, RE: the knife from the KR demo at Columbus 2007 town hall....

    Did you take it with you, or did they put it on a flash drive like The Sword of a Thousand Truths????

    (if you don't get the reference, watch South Park Tuesday, July 20th, at 10 Eastern)
