Why can I not have this guild title?

Discussion in 'UO Players Corner' started by Dreamz_imported, Jan 13, 2010.

  1. So I finally got around to adding my Gargoyle to the guild I am in and after getting added and turning on my guild title, I settle on a name (our guild name is VooDoo Tribe and figured a joke from the Wizard of Oz would work) "Flying Monkey"

    Lo and Behold, this name is not allowed. So why can I not use this name?

    my guess is the "..g m.." in the name... The filter is abominable in that regard.

    Hell, you can't even use "CONSTITUTION", because of it (and it having "tit")

    but they'll let you use just about any of the fairly inappropriate names Bart Simpson has used when prank calling Moe's Tavern.

    Figure that one out.
     
  4. Well I know you can use racial slurs against white people such as Honkie and Cracker and a few more in a guild title, but you would think they would use a little common sense when creating such a filter.

    Such a shame as I think a Gargoyle flying around with the title "Flying Monkey" would be hilarious, but then again what do I know.

    Pretty sure you can use apostrophes, so try, Flyin' Monkey. :stir:
     
  6. Flyin Monkey worked

    Alternately, a person can also have the following titles

    Spanky Monkey
    Monkey Spanker
    Spank My Monkey


    Yeah some filter guys...

    I don't know why, but you can't use skill titles either. I tried to give my beggar/chef the title of "Homeless Chef" and it denied it. I had to go with "homeless cook" instead.


    The filter is stupid. It lets by things it shouldn't and blocks legit non-offensive choices. Flying Monkey sounds like a good one for a gargoyle.
     
  8. In all honesty I do see why they implemented it at all.

    I always wanted a packhorse named Molasses since they walk so slow...

    *sighs*

    Oh well...

    Maybe you could name one "small mammal rears"
    Pretty much the same thing right?
