    So during the revert on Atlantic I lost a load of runebooks I started making. Before I was allowed the name "Luna - North East".

    After remarking today it tells me "That is inappropriate".

    Is this a bug?

    Its the current "inappropriate" issue for each word containing EA.

    It might well be, but it worked fine before. That's what I don't understand. The original I marked between 1st and 3rd December 2012.

    "east" is now inappropriate.

    It's sad without a doubt. My real life name would be deemed as inappropriate by the filter now because of 'ea' not being allowed.

    Annoying isn't it...... Theatre is now illegal as well..... so..... only runes actually MARKED at my Theatre work right now. I can't mark one out front or put a sign over a teleporter that tells anyone it goes to the Theatre... sad isn't it?

    However I'm hopeful it'll get fixed and that one of the DEV's will take on the challenge of properly programing that silly filter so that I can mark runes to things like Compassion Grove as well as my Theatre.

    I can't help but wonder when the team is going to learn from their mistakes in pushing code without testing it. Since returning two weeks ago I have been subjected to the loss of over 30 hard earned EM items (est 5 billion worth), an average of 5 crashes a night, while playing a buggy atlantic client that freezes for 30 seconds at a time every two minutes. I left due to bugs in April fyi.

    Ideas!
    1) give people an incentive for bug testing on Origin and Test center. ATM, the only incentive people seem to have is finding bugs to exploit.
    2) change the housing ruleset on origin to allow for primary accounts to have secondary housing. Again, offer incentive...you WANT people to place here.
    3) don't roll out a publish until it has had extensive testing (see ideas 1 and 2 for how to accomplish). IMO it is pointless to roll out a bug squash pub if it literally causes more issues than it solves.

    All of these issues you've noted were due to the hardware corruption issues, not Publish 80. That's not to say publish 80 wasn't hastily pushed through to prodo shards and resulted in a lot of new and unfortunate bugs, but I just wanted you to realize that the particular issues you pointed out had nothing to do with the publish or bugs.

    If you patch a server known to be buggy and it ends up corrupted...who is to blame.
    a) the hardware
    b) the patch
    c) those responsible for both

    The server Atlantic was broken when I left in April, since that date I am unaware of any maintenance performed to fix the ongoing problem. All I can do is speculate by filling in the last 8 months with an educated guess.

    1. Knowing what to test would help. Sometimes the obvious things aren't so obvious. I play Origin. It's the only shard I actively play - I decorate homes on other shards, that's it.

    2. NO! Hell No. I'd use other phrases as well, but no. Origin used to have an active playerbase. That player based died off after a lot of testing issues and patching issues and people leaving because they wanted a different shard to play on. Adding more empty houses to a shard that people MAY use, but likely won't won't help. And those of us on Origin, like me, may not have houses they can test customization on. I have 3 keeps, one customized house - that house has vendors which means I can't test customization.

    3. Yes! This patch was on Origin 2 days? Maybe? Before it went live. Not enough time for testing.

    I do suggest that using Test Center for longer might have been a huge suggestion. But things that the Q&A team goes over should also be given to the players so we can test and break things and report it.

    Well, I understand your issue with #2 as an Origin vet. Unfortunately, housing seems to be an extensive issue in this game with every passing publish. What would you propose as a solution?

    It's called Test Center for a reason. Anyone can easily place there. Anyone can test stuff there.

    The problem is knowing what needs to be tested. A part of me suggests that they cloone Origin to Test center and let people test on a "live" version of origin that's cloned - that way Origin itself isn't affected, but people are working with stuff they have on the server. I'd have no problem destroying a keep on Origin on Test Center and placing a customized house.

    The EA filter is fixed as of today.

    Haha me too, just two nights ago I tried to re-make my crafter... but nope I had to use another name =[. hopefully they will adjust this filter soon. most of the inappropriate names people come up with don't even use half the words that are in the filter to begin with.
