Some people were swearing and using bad language in the free room naming. That was a long time ago though. I don't understand why Ganz doesn't trust us at this point. Parents of kids were calling in complaining about the free room naming but Ganz could've just answered something like, "Just give your kid a punishment."
As I wrote before, the logic of Ganz decision was as follows. Chat filtering still allows some offensive words to slip through as "combination" of other words. Those who are vouched into KinzChat+ are considered adult enough to handle it. However, with all the complaining about rudeness in Trading room, Ganz has come to understanding that there are plenty of minors there. And, while they can avoid the offensive exposure by choosing regular KinzChat, they cannot opt out from seeing stuff when visiting other houses.
I can repeat a solution that I suggested in the past. Ganz should allow double names for rooms - one is selected from the pulldown list, the other (optional) is typed in. The player would see the typed name (or, if nothing is typed, a selected one), and visitors would only see the selected name. This appears to be a perfect solution that satisfies everyone.
- Players can fully enjoy (and easily find) their house collections.
- House visitors are not exposed to occasional offensive names.
- The implementation is trivial and does not require much coding.
Considering that this is one of the most popular requests on this board (probably second only to room deleting), it would be really appreciated if Ganz listened to their fans.
That IS great idea! If someone wants to name there room something bad, people shouldn't have to deal with that!
I would love to name our rooms whatever we want again. I mean, I have some pets together in one room, and I hate it because I have to name the room after one pet in the room. It would be nice to put "Oliver, Princess and Keroppi's Bedroom" or something with all the pets in that room. And, when I get my newspaper room done (you know, like with desks), it would be nice to name it "The Newspaper Room" instead of "The Office."

Yeah, people were misusing it, (probably, I didn't know.) But, at least they could take it away for those members? (I'm just throwing that idea out there. I mean, in school, it's "Go to the bench." and the rest of the class does gym or whatever. Also, it's like in the clubhouse, you say something your not allowed to, and they ban you. (once they look it over) Not close that room option or something.)

To me, some of the decisions made border on being contemptuous of us. Mostly right now the fact of how many times it can take to get a security code to enter on peek-a-newz. If the programmers themselves, or the ones who give them direction had to deal with that even one time, it would go to the top of their "fix" list right away. And the room name thing - similar. Those who designed the room naming have not played in WW or listened to those who do - or it would have been resolved long since.
