    13 characters is the limit for naming the farm.

    Are you sure it isn't the word filter being over zealous? Despite there being a Research with Skill in its name try typing it in a message

    It is this idiotic word filter, of course it is! I am sooo upset that I didn't formulate the question properly perhaps, I know very well that the word cock here is a problem, but really, peacocks are animals on the island, so GGS needs to do something about it. I guess I better contact support, but I needed to vent my anger publicly!!!

    Same as all the other farms. Use 'Settings' from the square menu top right

    It's not fixed for me... :(

    Hmm, that was ridiculous. Apparently I am NOT allowed to call it "Tropicana" but "Island Farm" is okay. *eyeroll* Good thing it's only 30 days. :-p

    Every time I try to rename my Island Farm, I get an "Invalid Name" message. Some names I have tried are: Tropical Fish, Tropics, TropicalFish, etc. As far as I can tell none of these are swear words or have special characters, and hopefully it's a bug that can be fixed! Thank you!

    The game has very odd notions of what is a "bad word." It wouldn't let me include the word "floral" in my flower farm name, and I have no idea why. It probably thinks part of the word "tropical" is inappropriate, but don't ask me what it might be. I think the only thing you can do is try something that doesn't include "tropical" and see if that works.

    It wouldn't let me name my farm Tropicana, but Island Farm was apparently acceptable. :-p

    It includes things that are swear words in other languages, so probably something in the middle is a dirty word in some other language. :/

    :D I tried to name island farm - Pina Colada... wouldn't let me do it, of course.
    I named it like this: Pin a Colada ;)
    No problems with that 8)
    Meaning is not the same, but who cares, it's only 30 days... ;)

    I tried "Vacation Island", "Vacation" and the bad language message came up.

    It could be right. Vacations are so expensive these days. Who knows?

    If he filter is being stupid, try copy/pasting ç in place of the c. Or just misspell the whole thing so you can actually fit it into the 13 character space. Like a vanity license plate. You know how many spellings of 'love' there are for license plates? I saw lov once. And also luvv. Things really aren't perfect, so try to work around the issues instead of just getting mad and throwing a tantrum.

    I can't name mine either, won't say the name but had the word Tropical in it, glitches should always be expected, I hope they sort it out soon though as it is the last task...

    One of the members in our co-op tried to name her island "Tropical" as well but it does indeed show the foul language warning. ;s
    We've been wondering if it means something bad in some language but nobody could think of anything and the co-op chat doesn't censor it either. o.o

    Let's face it.
    The programmers behind the censorship filter has more bad thinking than most of us combined.
