Default Unanswered: Help - Renaming Rooms

Hi, My name is Lynn, my granddaughters have 70 Webkinz, we are trying to organize their pets rooms, by renaming some of them. But we are having trouble. I click rename, click the room that I want to change the name of, highlight the room name and hit delete, type in the new name and the messge I get is "Oops, you have used a word that is not allowed". I have tried this over and over again with numerous different rooms and different names with no luck. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

The new filter program ganz put into effect a few months ago has made it impossible to use many of the names for rooms that we could use before. Unfortunately it is now trial and error till you find names it will allow. It is very frustrating but nothing you can do but keep trying.

My rooms also can't be renamed (even to "safe" words like "kitchen.") I've read somewhere on WI that some large group of us are stuck on servers which have a very strange or limited dictionary of allowable words. Apparently everyone doesn't have this problem, but if you do...

I wrote to Ganz early about this, and got some strange, non-useful reply concerning naming the rooms based on their dictionary. Of course, they don't give you the list of allowable words, so it was basically useless.

I've given up naming, but perhaps others will be more help to you. Welcome to the WI! And a little rep to you, too, as a welcome.

Sorry, we cross-posted Lioness. Has anyone made an effort to create a dictionary of allowable words? That's something I haven't come across.

Yes I know there was a thread started somewhere but not sure where exactly. If I come across it again I'll come back and post the link. Perhaps someone else will remember and do that for you. Oh and the cross post thing happens all the time

I have also been having trouble renaming my rooms. I think alot of people have. I guess the only thing there really is to say is to keep trying. I know that isn't what you wanted to hear, but I hope you find something that works.

I also found out that if a room was named one thing and I decided to change it and the new name isn't allowed it won't always let you change it back to the old one either.

Smile Re: Help - Renaming Rooms

I've had the same problem and have thus resorted to renaming my rooms for the theme (not the pet). This seems to work 95% of the time. I've only encountered a few glitches since I've renamed my rooms this way. Maybe Ganz recognizes (room) themes as names more frequently and more easily than something not in "the system."

Hope this helps!

Well it works for me. But I think you can only rename a room you bought, not the room that comes with your pet.

To rename a room you CAN'T be in the room, click the 'rename' button then click the room you want renamed. after you type it in click the check mark. This should work.
