Inappropriate Names for Farmers

MaryT (US1)MaryT (US1) US1 Posts: 9
Is there any rule as to how to name your farmer. I was running a Mission  and was surprised that the person in second place was named "*******"  [edited for inappropriate content | Pickle].  I do have a screen shot, the time was 10:44 est  4/20/2018 United States server (that's the one I'm on). 
I know most of us are Adults but there must be some guidelines somewhere. 
I'm an Implementer/Administrator on an on-line game and I'd never allow a name like that, even though most of my players are Adults.

  • On January 5, I sent a ticket to support about someone with almost the same name but it was spelled with 2 k's instead of ck. The player's main farm was called jackenhoff and I sent screenshots showing both names. I'm generally not a tattletale but kids could be playing this game. And really, nobody should have to see that. I never heard anything back but then I never do and don't even get the copy of the ticket in my email. I've also noticed some boats in dockyards with less than polite names but a username is a lot more in your face and there's really no place for that in a farming game.

    I've seen inappropriate username's myself.  :(   Sometimes they fall through the cracks and make it past the censor when a player registers for the game. If they're especially offensive, the only thing you can do is report it to Support. Then it's up to them.  ;)

    I'd be willing to bet that most of the players using these kind of names are kids.

    I don't mind the foul language. I came of age during a time when everyone all let loose. But, do you really think "Pedophile" is something let slide? Could be a joke, but what if it isn't? The system won't even let me name my horse "Serendiptiy" for Pete's sake.

    Yea Pedophile is pretty bad. Especially on a game kids can play.  Yea I'd have to say that crosses a line.

    But I played a game (long gone now) with a guy who went by Buckoff.  lol.  
    At the risk of losing my stable… one of my farms has a whole stable of buck horses.  
    Buckoff  getbucked,  bucker, etc.   

    Not really cussing, horses do buck so reality really.  Just because that sounds like something else… 
    lol… 
    See what I do when not playing silly games.

    I need to change my username.... how do i do it ? 
  • Not only do I think that a person with "pedophile" in his name should be kicked off the game, maybe someone should contact authorities on whatever server it is. Not cool.

    As for other "inappropriate" names, as a femailman I see real names everyday on mail that could be counted as offensive if they were fake, but they aren't. Real names can be downright funny!

    Why would parents allow children to play a game with adults online? I don't think kids should be in a co op at all. You never know who your kid could be chatting with in one. Yuck.

  • I need to change my username.... how do i do it ? 
    @TMKC (IN1) You would have to contact support, as only they can do that, but I should warn you that it is extremely rare for them to do it, without a very good reason.

    Just my humble opinion here,  SO WHAT?

    You think kids don't hear foul language from other kids at school?   Please.
    I learned the F word back in Kindergarden.  
    (and OH the horror when my mother saw it scribbled on a piece of scratch paper…. oh my….Nevermind I must have heard it spoken hundreds of times a day at my good Catholic school.)  

    Frankly I think the whole thing is funny.   But complaining about it will only produce more really stupid filters than they already have in place that are obviously all just a challenge to get around.    

    Do you know… one of the many words they have filtered here, because PART of the word would be another word that is bad….  but the full word refers to a fruit.  one that grows on a vine and is usually used to make wine.   Starts with a G.   yup…. try using it.  I don't recall now if it's here or chat but one of the two won't let you.   

    So do we really need more of these?   Please.  Laugh at it and move on.  
    And the cencoring in ig letters for the very same reason shouldnt be allowed then? There are SEVERAL words, as u cant do in ig letter, while u can do them in chat (because thats not swearing, so it makes a lot of sense).... So why shouldnt names matter? Even horse names matters in this case.

    Just saying.
