Mata Hairy

Discussion in 'Toontown General Discussion' started by Sheriff Tricky, Jul 9, 2008.

  1. Well TT is completely evil! They took away my toon's name after having this toon for over a year. They accepted this name on the first time but would not take Matt A. Hairy, etc. I am SOOOO upset about this.:sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2::sad2:

    I am friends with THE mata hairy tribute toon and it was taken away from her earlier.

    Also it is a woman's name.

    Awww. Sorry to hear that Eric. TT is notorious for letting some names stay and others get taken away. I have two friends named Tinkerbelle. One got her name taken away after two years. The other friend got her name approved 3 months ago. Yet, there is still a toon running around named Richard Cranium.

    They sure can, although the length of this one is quite surprising. They took away my pig "The Other White Meat" after about a month. It was approved on the first shot. They usually have a reason (copyright, not appropriate, etc.).
    It's like: "Here Happy Birthday, take this awesome toon name" and then they come back and take it away. You feel violated in a sense. :rant2:

    Anyone wanna complain to TT for taking away names?:lol:
    I sure hope if my monkeys name gets approved they wont take it away. I've been trying for 3 days.:stir::stir::stir::stir::stir:

    :rant2: I am so sorry :sad2:

    I loved Mata, just won't be the same :(
    Look at the bright side,

    I still lurve ya! :heart:
     
  10. Whether it was a woman's name or not did not really matter to me, it is more a matter of principle that they took the name away after a years time. I have emailed them because in their email to me they said that I contacted them, which I did not. Can't wait to hear what this excuse it.

    Oh and Chanty, I know you Lurve me!:heart:
     
  11. Complaining wont do a thing, they took them away for a reason so they wont give them back. You would think having a name for a long time wouldnt get takin away though. Im still sorry that they did that eric.

    Awww so sorry Eric. :( TT is pure evil when it comes to names. I've always been curious, when they take a name and name you toon, do you have the option to change it again or are you stuck with toon forever.
     
  13. :( That is stupid that TT can take names away!!:sad2:

    Actually it's rather smart. But how they enforce it is what's rather stupid.
     
  15. True lol
     
  16. It says I can pick a new name but for two days now it has been under review.
     
  17. it is just amazing how harmless names get took away from people but i seem to find toons with bad names that get accepted. I have been reporting a few toons for bad names. I saw a rabbit named lovely lady lumps which is inapropriate for a kids game.

    Who would even want to name a toon that anyway?? I agree, totally inappropriate...

    I had an impossible time trying to name a black cat last year...finally got them to accept Charcoal Snowflake...after about 10 names were rejected..

    I know all about it, gather 'round chiddern, and be careful or you just might learn sumthin...

    The first few times, they'll let you rename your toon. When I say the first few, I'm thinking 2 or 3. Then if they take it away again, your toon is permanently named Toon, no option to pick a new name.

    I speak from my personal experience, your results may vary.

    Hehe In City of Hero's my Hero's name was: Ivanna Humpalot
    and I got reported! For TT I would say that is probably a lil much, but give me a break. :cursing:
     
  21. Yeah, TT is weird with names. It makes no sense. The other day my SF said she saw ducks named duckin him and duckin her.
     
  22. I saw them, i was laughing then i thought oh yeah thats bad.
     
  23. SSniffleslam

    I've seen them around too...maybe it was completely innocent?? yeah, yeah, I know better.

    TT sucks, when I reactivated my TT account 2 of my toons names were taken away
     
  25. Those 2 toons were at a Stratics Sunday night run a few weeks ago. A few of us were talking about those names earlier and then there they were at the CFO!!! Someone was brave enough (Pinky I'm thinking) to do the "Stratics Salute" and they never responded. Lots of whispers going on that night about whether they had read the posts about them on here in the Toon name thread!!!rolleyes:

    I remember, Duckin Him was on one side and Duckin Her was on the other! We were amazed to see them both there so soon after discussing them here on the forums. But they were not very chatty and did not respond with proper phrases.
     
  27. Little Sadie

    Little Sadie Guest

    Ducken Him and Ducken Her are SFs of mine. They also have Ducken Awesome and Ducken Ask. Amazed that any of these got approved. LOL! Trust me, it wasn't innocent. And Ducken Her, aka Tom, is a Stratics member. He also plays Purrfection, Hott Tomale, and Doctor Dizzycrumbs. So if you see those at the runs, they are one in the same.

    OH MY GOSH is all I can say about Ducken....lol
     
  29. I'm currently in the NR DDL pg (too many acronyms!) and looking at a pig named Other White Meat...hmm...

    I'm in NR too and I've seen that pig around a lot...I was wondering too!!!

    Brand infringement likely. Because, isn't "the other white meat" possum?
    :lick:


    Sorry to hear about those of you who have lost names. I regret having very little imagination when I named my toon, and I'm in awe of many of your toon names. Btw, it took me a long stint of staring into space and cranking up the old synapses to figure out why "Richard Cranium" is considered naughty. Personally, I think that one that should be allowed to stay forever, lol.
     
  32. Sorry to dig up an old thread, but I just saw three toons, named: Cat Slobber, Im Schtinky, and (best for last) Anita Pii. What is going ON here?
     
  33. Monkeybear

    Monkeybear Guest

    when i first read Anita Pii I originally thought of pie :p Now im thinking yellow substance
     
  34. Same thing happened to me...:eek:

    Maybe the ® is for the complete phrase with "The"? It might be that.
     
  36. SSniffleslam

    SSniffleslam Guest

    Maybe it's wrong of me, but I find the Pii one hilarious...It's certainly something I would never have thought of...
     
  37. I agree in that it is pretty funny, but not exactly appropriate for a predominantly kids' game. I mean...come on, people...use that creative ingenuity someplace constructive!
     
  38. SSniffleslam

    SSniffleslam Guest

    Well, nothing against the kiddos, but my daughter didn't get it until I explained it to her. Then she thought it was funny...and besides, it's not like it's a baaaad word.
     
  39. True, very true...point for SSniffleslam! lol I was just surprised when I saw that name, based on some of the names TT DOESN'T accept, which are much different than that one.

    I noticed that nobody mentioned that the name of the little monkey in the CFO is named Mata Hairy. So whats up with that? They take from you when they are using it all along, too. Something doesn't add up. Coiuld it possibly be double-standard??????

    I'm pretty sure that is WHY they took it from him. There was another Mata Hairy (a girl monkey that looked just like the CFO monkey) who I hear lost her name too.

    great. i gave it a name i wanted them to reject since i haven't thought of a good name yet. AND i just blew like 3000 beans gifting her... now i gotta delete her and start over. ooooooo what do they say??? Welcome to toontown!

    I did the same thing Susan. I put in Willow since it was known as a reject name. I went and bought her everything. Came back later to see that they had accepted it. I had to delete and start over. I used Duck You to get it rejected the next time. LOL!
