The quirkiness of some disallowed names....

Discussion in 'UHall' started by Victoria Navarre, Dec 25, 2010.

  1. I wish the devs or whoever is in charge of deciding what name is acceptable especially when it comes to guild names would adjust the list. I went to make a crafter/merchant guild a few days ago with the same type name as you see in my siggy. I kept being told the guild name is unacceptable. It seems that using the word "association" is offensive to some. While others name their characters with such childish names that boggles the mind on how it got past the censors.

    Yes, I once wanted to make a guild that was a trade association, needless to say, that idea did no fly as a guild name, and I was quite annoyed.

    Trust me I know..... I get seriously disgusted by some of the names I see people running around with... or that they name their pets.... I'm like seriously???? and you don't get paged on or banned for that???

    Oh and don't even get me started about some of the smeg I've seen people name their boats!

    And we can't make folk a councilor of our guild or anything..... without doing plays on letters or misspelling... it.

    Long long ago when I got into UO I didn't take it seriously or think it be around for more then a couple years. So had little fun naming a couple characters. Many years later in lonely place in Ilsh grinding for hours ......... yanked to a prison cell for first time. Think cool the GM wants my advise. But no the GM started rotating in random NPCs and all he said was "I'll stop when you say , when." And like that Bohica Azwhoel had a new random NPC name. Was asked if any my other named characters may need a change. Told me UR Fubar was OK even after I had to explain to the GM what FUBAR was.

    Couldn't name my nightmare Monbat Assassin.

    "Compassion" also gets blocked too, so one of my vendors named for the virtues had to resort to an umlaut instead ... it looks so ugly, damn it!

    Last year I saw a player who chose the name "TheRapist". Funny thing is, this name is allowed, but the guild title "Assassin" isn't.

    we had this very conversation in TS last night when i got one of those new swords, the Defiler.

    i thought that was a pretty nasty name for a weapon.
    im sure if i picked that as a name in game id get a visit from a GM and a nice new random NPC name.

    hey, can someone lend me that new katana, i want to go defile some pixi's.
    that just sounds wrong, hehe.

    Compassion. Siegmund. Titus Pullo.

    Not to mention all the profession titles (Bard. Alchemist. Blacksmith.) that cannot be used as a Guild Title.

    As an American, I find it especially ironic that "Constitution" is blocked by the profanity filter...

    (My mule, named Daystrom after the creator of the M5 computer in Classic Star Trek, was attempting to name all his pack animals after Enterprise sister ships)

    I had a char named Hugh Jorgan for a while, but decided to delete it after a week. It was only for a few laughs anyway...

    Deleted because of the next post. Althought my name did not breach the naming policy of UO when i made it, it does "breach the stratics RoC".....

    small point, dodging the profanity filter is a breach of RoC.
