    Just curious as to why a rune name would be deemed inappropriate.

    Running Man Isle --- I marked a rune for an island and if you crossed your eyes and stared really long it kinda looked like a man running. So I decided to name it running man isle. It wouldn't let me saying it was inappropriate. For the life of me I can't figure out why.

    Not important just curious.

    Thanks.

    I tried to name a rune Origin, - but thats improper too...

    Feels kinda strange - if its improper to mark and name, its not allowed to say it - so in all means its even bannable...

    There's all sorts of strings like that which cannot be used on a rune (or engraved onto a container), unfortunately. "Councelor's Hall", "Overseers", "Grass" are the three I've run into most often. Misk said they won't be fixed over in http://community.stratics.com/threads/typo-in-area-name.294271/ . I would be willing to bet a month's subscription cost that the problem is some overly greedy regular expressions in the filter... but it seems noone is interested in fixing the filters to be only as limited as is actually needed.

    I had ancient runes named 'Titan Valley'. Then suddenly 4 or 5 years ago I could not name a rune that. "Titan Valley" ?

    if your unsure just rename a single letter until it passes. move that changed letter down the string until you find the full sting it is not allowing.

    Yeah I tried to mark Delucia Pass but the end of pass prevented it.

    Yes and that combination of letters also makes marking a Rune for Compassion.... IMPOSSIBLE. Stupid..... childish and silly but it is what it is.

    Yes we can't even mention one of our OWN virtues the game is BASED on.

    Aye, though you can copy existing books w/a compassion rune with a pen of wisdom... I have a compassion rune on most shards; if anyone needs one and can provide the pen, drop me a line.

    Actually, this was fixed a while ago. Compassion works as a rune title.

    Just wanted to say thanks! It was the "g m". I am amazed that this was the first time in fourteen years of game play that I couldn't name a rune especially now that I know how sensitive the system is.

    Can I also mark a rune with the word "Pass" now?

    I keep forgetting all those unacceptable strings and I still run into this a lot as I make new chars, mark runes, change vendor/shop names a bit more often than average players.
    Whenever I'm told the name is unacceptable and I can't come up with a good alternative name quickly, I just simply put a dot(.) between the letters of the string so it becomes acceptable. It makes the name look a bit weird but the dot isn't really noticeable much in most cases.

    Last year I helped host a Holiday Party, and we had some drinking games, one of which was to see who puked the least in a 5 minute period after chugging a bunch of booze. I went about making the prize box, and tried to engrave the box with *Most Intestinal Fortitude*.... but there was no way...
