    Whilst happily going about my business marking up for runes for various areas of the world to aide with T-hunting I came across this little anomaly.

    To use the word 'East' in any part of the description whilst renaming runes gives the return 'That is inappropriate'

    It's only a minor nuisance but I'm wrecking my brains to figure out which part of it is inappropriate. I've tried googling but drawn a blank. Is this an offensive word in another country? or is it just a cock up? :confused:

    Just interested, not trying to put the world to rights or anything. :D

    The system treats it as "EA". I just tried other words which also started with "ea", they were also inappropriate. Along with profane names, some porper names are also restricted.

    Aha! that would explain it! Couldn't see the trees for the forest!! ;)

    All just to prevent people from creating characters or pets with the name 'EA Sux' but then again they know that already! :D

    I could put EAST on a rune a few days ago. Now you cant? I had mine marked as EAST Brit Bank.

    With the new publish they changed the way to name stuff. I cant even rename my pet a greater dragon. It won't let me and tells me its inappropriate.

    My runes for Brit Bank is marked as follows: Brit Bank East and Brit Bank West...

    I organize my city rubebooks in alphabetical order, so that is why I place the actual city names first...

    :mylittlepony: Thanks!

    You can't even do that now! EA really are going on a defensive here. There must be literally thousands of words/names that contain 'ea' are EA really that short sighted?!? o_O

    I just tested alot of words that contain a sequntial "ea" (create, treat, east, feat, etc..). They were all inappropriate. These words are blocked, in the same manner "Compassion" and "Assassain" are prohibited for containing "ass". This must be an unintended bug of adding to the list of prohibited words. I suggest we all submit a bug report or PM to the DEV Team to look into this. It is unfortunate that normal words are subjected to the same censorship as the comon obscene ones.
