    Unhappy Forbidden words?

    Today, I attempted to name my gelatinous cube pet. Being the clever sort of gent I am, I wanted to name my cube after the immortal Thelonious Sphere Monk, what with the obvious play on words. Upon hitting enter on the rename screen, I was informed that I was using a forbidden word.

    wat

    At the risk of incurring the wrath of the team that put the word filter into place, I have to ask: What part of - pardon my French - "Gelonious Cube" is offensive?

    Nope. Tried using "cub" instead. It is definitely the word "gelonious" that is holding it up. Personally, I think it sounds significantly less gross than "gelatinous."

    And you know I would never intentionally hurt or impersonate The Cube. Momma didn't raise no fool.

    I'll try that in the morning, after I sleep the stupid away.

    But, I truly would prefer having the space.

    Seriously. THe name is probably banned or taken because of Cubthulu, or whatever he goes by these days. Related story, in LotRO, I tried to name my horse Greyfriars but it said it was a banned name.

    hmmmm...

    3 weeks later got a new horse forom the XYZ festival and I named it....Greyfriers. It worked that time.

    Using a space is forbidden on artificer pets; may be similar?

    A weird one I know is that "Elemental" is censored if you put it in your bio.

    Played Tera for a while when it came out, and they had this incredible word filter that somehow never got translated from the original Korean. So, you could say literally any vulgar word you could think of in any chat channel, but the word "can" followed by a comma was FORBIDDEN. I typed something harmless like "ice cream" and was informed that if I kept violating the terms of service, my account would be deactivated. It was the best.

    My favourite was when I was trying to update the guild MotD with directions to myaccount.turbine.com to change their passwords after the forum debacle. It would not let me update it due to "forbidden text". That forbidden text was:

    "turbine"

    Some words are obviously not so bad and should be allowed to use (chat, bio, names, pet names, etc):

    : ohgodwhy : i was making a pun on the movie, balls of fury, and the fact that i had a steel golem so the 's' in the 'balls' bit was to be removes, not in the steel bit

    the space is absolutely it. you cannot have spaces in companion or pet names

    i have:

    Shadow the black panther (yay originality)
    Zombiekitten the snow panther (named after a friend. <3 CLEPTA! ^_^ )
    Dizzafrabbado the blue kobold (Dizzy for short)
    StringTableError the steel golem (yes, it's capitalized that way)
    BiteyMcFrostyPants the ice render (thanks again Clepta )
    Cubethulu the cube
    and a nameless wolf and nameless rust monster.

    i also have MisseditbyTHATmuch the arti pet. can't have spaces there either.

    The word "muffin" is not allowed as a name for artificer pets.

    The reason that is forbidden is, it can be used to mean doing something not PG.

    Also I think that any name with no spaces puts profanity words together by mistake are also forbidden. i.e. wash,itdog, has.stufftodo.....
    periods are for profanity filter and making my point for the forum filter. was actually (wa****dog and h***tufftodo)

    When I first saw the thread title I thought it was going to be about the words PUG leaders hate to hear.

    Default No spaces.

    I attempted to name my pet "Class Feature"

    It didn't work.

    "ClassFeature" works though.
