Red face Re: Name Substitutions That WORK For Your Rooms!

I wish all of these worked, but sadly none of them worked! I cannot even name them a single letter! I don't know how people with a ton of WK's keep track without names of rooms? Is anyone able to name rooms these substitution names or anything else within the last few weeks??
Please let me know!

I can't rename anything either. I also have several lost items from WW crashing when they were being placed. I opened my account in the beginning of January and already have 10 pets and this is the 4th account in this house - all the kids also have accounts. I have spent at least 15 more pets waiting to be registered but I'm leery because of all the bugs. I was about to pre-order the new March pets but don't want to waste the money. I send emails and don't even get replies anymore. Mid-January I got a phone call saying they would call me back in 2-3 days to fix the account issues and have heard nothing since. Maybe I should be telling them all of this instead of writing it here... LOL

I'm having the same trouble. I couldn't name a room "garden," although it worked on my daughter's account. Where do we write to them to get it fixed?

Yes, I had the same problem.
I emailed them about it and here is what they replied with.

Hello,

Thanks for writing.

You have inquired about the naming of your room. We have recently updated our name filtering system to allow only names currently in our dictionary to be included as room names. We are aware that our dictionary has some restrictions and we are working on adding additional names and phrases in the near future.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may have encountered when trying to change your room name; however the new dictionary will help ensure the safety and security of Webkinz World for everyone.

Thank you,

That's what happened to me. I think the only thing you can do is call them and hope they respond since they don't even bother to read emails.

Not allowed Name -> Instead, you can use this name

Bedroom, Sleeping Room

Detention -> Time Out

Living Room -> Hang Out, Relax Room, Family Room

Restaurant -> Diner, Eat Out

Guest Bedroom
-> Guest Room

Boy’s Bathroom

Girl’s Bathroom
-> Girls Bathroom

Wonderland

Church, Chapel -> Studies, Sunday Room, Praise Room

Spa, Relaxing, Stress Free, Ohm, Sauna -> Gym, Health Club, Hotel, Exercise Room, Relax (Room)

Christmas -> Holiday Room, Winter Holiday Room

Dungeon -> Hold, Dark

Cafeteria -> Lunch Room, Diner, Eat Out, Snack Room

Castle -> Manor, Palace

Egypt -> Ancient Times, Pyramid

Laboratory -> Lab, Work Shop, Science Room


Detective, Police Office -> Office, Sleuth Office

Library -> Reading Room

Master Bedroom -> Bed Room, Grand Bed Room

Toilet Room -> Bathroom

That’s it for now. If you know of any that don’t work, post them here and I will add them to the list, and hopefully some substitute names. I have heard a rumor that they are updating their dictionaries, but this is a list for the mean time.

Enjoy,
Vanessa

Reindeer room will not work but Rain Deer room will.

Yeah, well. I don't think I'll call them.
Hopefully the problem will be fixed soon.
Until then, I'll just continue to be confused in my house. (:

So I talked to them on the phone - I know amazing - I talked to an actual person at Ganz!!! So, they said it all depends on what server your account was orginally registered on - so basically most of the newer accounts are on a server that doesn't allow ANY name changes and then other servers let some names while others don't allow that - anyway they said they are working on a fix... it has been months so I stopped holding my breath on this one.

I still love Webkinz!!!!!
