Default Answered: inappropriate pet name

this morning I was in the trading room and I traded with a pet that had a racially insensitive name. It offended me and I am sure that I am not the only one. Does anyone know if reporting this to Ganz would even be an option since obviously Ms. Birdy let it slide right through? I have all the information that is available. Thanks for the help.

I would report it to them. Sometimes they can find loops around the system.

Hmm i'm not sure... Are you sure you just didn't read into it in a weird way. Like a little white kitty named Whitey... It could be some small child that has no idea that they said something really bad. Mrs Birdie is usually really strict with names. I coudn't even name my chipmunk theodore. Now he's Teodore.. But if it's something really really bad I would call ganz.

Oh no! Im sorry this happened to you. I seen someone the other day in the trading room with a name of a beer as the name of their pet. I reported it via the report button in the trading room. Good luck!

Oh no...there was no mistaking this one. It was definitely a throw back to days long long ago! It wasn't weird letter combos...it was the whole name!

It could have been from before the strict naming system.
I couldn't name my signature wolf Monarch, as in monarchy, so now she's Maple...
I'd definitely report it!!

Ganz is so picky about names that are really innocent that I think this one perhaps should be reported.

And they finally fixed it so you can use Theodore, but I had to name my other chipmunk Simun.

I think you should report that pet name if it was offending to you. It may have slidden past the scanner, but that doesn't make it right.

Oh my goodness, that is so sad. I agree with everyone else you should definitely call/email Ganz customer support about this. Like they all say, we've all seen innocent names banned by Ms. Birdy (my son couldn't name his bat Dracula - I mean, what else do you name a bat LOL). Sometimes at my work some of our older clients still make ****** comments or jokes and I try so hard to just smile and ignore it and remember how much times have changed, but there is just no excuse on a modern online game for kids!! Good luck with your quest and thanks for standing up for equality!!!
