    I've recently been working on marking a rune library. The filtering system on the runes is really getting on my nerves. I understand not being able to name runes inappropriate things...but when I can't name my runes "Titans" or "Compassion"..I think that's a little ridiculous. Can't we have a better filtering system than that??

    Theres no reason why runes shouldnt be able to be named like that.. Methinks the person with the bar hammer is being a bit over zealous!

    This has been discussed over and over and over again..... and IMO it's BEYOND time something was done about it.

    I've brought this up multiple times myself for years, the filters have been broken since the moment they were implemented....almost 50% of the areas in the game due to some 3 letter combination somewhere in the name you can't mark a rune with it's proper name without intentionally misspelling..... Meanwhile the words they're ACTUALLY supposed to be filtering out are just as easy to bypass as the runes we're trying to mark... it's not like you don't know what it's saying when its slightly misspelled but looks the same..

    Even blocking that letter combination is offensive to avian enthusiasts: Tit (bird).

    Man, I was out marking runes and got several errors but Compassion was chiefly my biggest problem, so now it's in my book as Compasion. Also Enigma was hit with the filter. ENIGMA. What the pee? I wound up spelling Eniqma.

    I remember hating the fact I couldn't title guild members as assassins. On the other hand, it is nice to have my name grandfathered in.

    I agree though, I wish there was a smarter filter.

    Actually I'd give it all up for more "adult" players. And not having to ruin the game because of the childlike mentality of a select few. I mean most of us passed the middle school mentality long time ago... some have never grown out of it.

    Egg on my face - I changed email addresses so often during migration period that I had wrong email address linked to my accounts.

    I left my phone number at help.ea.com site and got back a call in 15 minutes and the CS rep walked me through!

    Very pleased with their fast response:)
