    ファイアダンジョン - Fire Dungeon
    カオス神殿 - Chaos Shrine
    エクソダスダンジョン - Exodus Dungeon
    ソーサラーズ - Sorcerer's Dungeon
    ネクロマンサーアリーナ - Necromancer Arena
    ドゥーム - Doom
    武士道道場 - Fandancer Dojo
    ヨモツ坑道 - Yomotsu Mine

    I've checked all locations on GL and found nothing. If anyone finds anything, please post here with Date, Time, Location and Shard for all to share!!!

    Will everyone please stop shortening the word 'Japanese'. It gives offence, and I'm sure none is intended.

    Can I ask those who have posted such to go back to their posts and edit please?

    I bet you wouldn't be saying that if someone had said 'Brit shard'.

    Don't say we are getting all PC on Stratics too.

    Somebody save me from this world we live in.

    no, because it's the fact that it's abbreviated that gives offence! Not all cultures are the same remember, what is insignificant to one culture is not to another.

    :D No, I'm English, which is why Hoffs mentioned 'Brit Shard'. Happily I know he was only teasing a fellow Siege player.

    Umm, so if I said Brit Shard then. . .?? What if I said Euro shard or Aussie Shard or Yank shard

    Is there a list of abbreviations the mods have that MIGHT cause offense to someone that can be shared with us?

    If the use of the abbreviation for Japanese is to be banned then the abbreviation for all countrys will also have to be banned.
    If you dont then you are discriminating against the countrys that you allow to be abbreviated.
    I personaly do not think any of our Japanese friends would be offended, the problem lies with politicaly correct people flagging these minor and trivial things up, this then sets the ball rolling for politicaly correct discussions we find ourselves having now.
    So lets start the list that the mods need to keep an eye out for.
    Brit bank should now be refered to as Britain Bank.
    Limeys, pommys, yanks, aussies, swiss, etc are not to be written.
    This is the part where it starts to get ridiculous and snowballs out of control.
    The only person that seemed to have taken offence of this abbreviation is a self confessed Brit who was the only person to flag this up.
    If you hadnt of mentioned about it "maybe" causing offence then its likely that it would not have caused any offence.
    Thats the problem with the PC brigade.
    And before you start shouting, i am a Brit and proud of it, but i am not proud of the rediculous PC and elf and safety brigade we have in our country.
    We cause problems by flagging up problems that arent actualy problems.
    Hmmm now i'm confusing myself and will now retire to lurk around these boards and try to find a slime......1 just 1 is all i want to see.......

    There is a huge difference between the shortened form of British and the shortened form of Japanese because of history. This isn't new. During the second world war, use of this shortened form of Japanese became an ethnic slur. If you need a more complete explanation, I point you to:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jap

    Also, those three letters refer to another slur (when they are all capitalized).

    As for the matter of political correctness, I have always been against censorship, though my reasons are different than most. I would never use such words, but I consider them an excellent litmus test. I hold a person's poor word choice against him or her. Feel free to use any words you want, but remember it will greatly influence how people view you and interact with you.

    Alrighty then. So where are those slimes?

    Having read the wiki with interest i point you to this section of the wili explanation:
    "In Singapore[9] and Hong Kong,[10] the term is used freely as a contraction of the adjective "Japanese". The Australian news service Asia Pulse also uses the term.[11] In 1970, the Japanese fashion designer Kenzo Takada opened the "Jungle Jap" boutique in Paris.[12] In Japan itself, most Japanese are apathetic about the term, according to a 2004 study.[1]

    "
    So according to wiki the US, canada, and UK find the term derogatory, but in Japan the people there are apethetic of the term.
    Kind of bolsters up my statement about PC people flagging up a problem that is possibly not a problem at all.
    I'm not condoning the deliberate use of words to upset or humiliate anyone, but i think in this thread the abbreviation was not used in a nasty or offensive way.

    "So according to wiki the US, canada, and UK find the term derogatory, but in Japan the people there are apethetic of the term."

    That's because the US, Canada and the UK are being strangled by some laws, whether written or not, that takes offence at too much. We have become thin skinned and afraid of other peoples feelings to the point of not being able to say much for fear of offending them.
    Where is it written that we have a right to not be offended??

    Pathetic that so many of todays weak people have to break down and cry about how offended they are by words. Words mean nothing actions DO. AmeriKans are the last people that should act all PC when they daily institute and enforce policies that amount to genocide against the indiginous people inside their own borders. Wakan Tanka.. But still I Thank the Great Mystery every day for the opportunity to be Lakota.
    So why don't all of the holier than thou step down off your platform and STFU since odds are you support genocide against indiginous people via your tax dollars and elected officials :)
    I find genocide and ethnocide offensive but I don't see whites, blacks or Asians rushing in to stop it in AmeriKa. Again very Wakan
