    I am trying to communicate with my coop farmer whose English is "not good" (according to her); so wrote a letter using google translator so that it would be translated into Vietnamese & I would copy/paste Vietnamese translation to her in the in-game PM.
    But lo! and behold, I am instructed to change the word "gay" in my Vietnamese translation. Here is the English text I've been trying to send her: "Hi, not knowing much English is not a problem; there is always a way. A little about me - I am retired; I knit and sew; I love to read. Sharing thoughts and ideas will become easier as we get to know each other. For now, have a great day."
    All are welcome to translate this into Vietnamese.  What do you get? I especially, am appealing to anyone who knows Vietnamese to tell me why my google translation will/cannot be sent? WHERE is this "gay" word??? I am so angry and frustrated that I cannot communicated with a coop member because of language.  I understand filters, respect, courtesy etc between peoples playing game.  SO WHAT IS GGS's problem?  I don't want her to leave coop because of language barrier.  Someone PLEASE HELP!!!  Thank you.

    Now that I have calmed down a bit, I discovered that I CANNOT send PM to my coop farmer only in Vietnamese; BOTH English and Vietnamese must be sent. Sorry for ranting and raving, but I was totally exacerbated about being blocked because of filtering.  My son explained that if a sequence of "gay" appears alone or within a larger word, the filter blocks not only the word itself but also the larger word that contains "gay". So frustrating, but somewhat understandable...I guess.  Again, thanks everyone for your patience & understanding my "over-the-top" emotions.  Everyone have a great day.

    Not helpful, I know, but I have yet to figure out why I can't name a horse Serendipity.

    The same happens at SKN1 when ofc writing in Norwegian, Swedish or Danish. Some words containing letters forming a word that is banned in English are not accepted. I believe banning of words should follow the language one is writing and not soley English words. Especially when at another server then an English one.

    It isssss annoying and it is not always easy to find another word to replace the one that is not accepted.

    Cheers :smile:

    @Summer (SKN1) @artful (US1) @ijrosh (US1)  thank you all for responding.  I finally see where "gay" is in Vietnamese. I thought I was going crazy looking for just the WORD not a sequence of letters IN a word. Totally lost it there, but everything seems to have worked out well. I sent PM to her with both English & Vietnamese; it went off swimmingly. :smiley:  Yes, I agree it should filter for other languages, but as we all can see, it doesn't...sigh...maybe in the near future. Thanks again to all of you.

    heh and today I see a player at SKN1 using a shocking, shameful erotic nick. While using regular, ordinary Norwegian words containing letters that spell something unacceptabel in English are not allowed through. Yes, a filter should accompany the language in use and not soley the English language.

    I am happy for you that you got your msg through :smile: hmm but having to write in both languages seems a waste of space and time.

  • I think they should END the word filter list. It is only used for private messages. If someone sends me a message that I find offensive I can block the user and be done with it. Problem solved.
    With the word filter list it causes more problems than solving. I get so frustrated typing basic messages to coop mates and everyday words can't be used because of this word filter list. GGS has provided a way to deal with unpleasant private messages already, it's called block!

    End word filter list please!!

    It would be better to repost in the Suggestions section to see who else agrees.

    Only those wanting to add something to the whitelist will be looking here so you won't get any support for the idea if it stays here only

    In English, I tried to use the word Perseverance to name my fishing region, but was blocked.  Please whitelist this word.  I was told by the moderators that the first five letters represent a very rude word in Finnish.

    Thank you farmerjohn_22 (US1) for the beautiful picture!
