Default Unanswered: Renaming Rooms

When I buy a room, I'm given an option to rename the room. Funny thing is that when I
try to do it, more often than not with the pet's name, I get the error message "YOU'VE
USED A WORD THAT'S NOT ALLOWED" or something to that effect. Anyway, if I'm just putting in the pet's name & I've been allowed to used it to adopt, how can the word
not be allowed? Recently, I have been allowed to use GARDEN & BATHROOM, but still no pet names. Does anyone have a clue what's going on with this & when, if ever, renaming will be allowed again? This is nuts!!

(my 1st & my latest pets)

Welcome to WI. It seems renaming rooms is a problem for everyone right now. Nobody knows for sure when the problem will be solved. I've seen threads for alternative room names. You can find them in the Guides & How-tos forum.

It does that very very often. Nobody knows why. Although there are a few theories that the website itself has a dictionary, if an "apropriate" or misspelled word is entered it denies it. Therefore it has to be exact to be accepted. Try using names like Cat Room, Green Room, Garden, Bathroom, Dog Room, Happy Room, and Pet room. That's what is ALWAYS accepted.

I think part of the problem is not the pet's name, but the word "room". You probably got away with bathroom because it's all one word. The problem started when WW updated the chat area to help make sure no one was being inappropriate. You can't use the word girl or boy and usually not a number to keep kids from giving out personal information in the chat area. Hope this helps.

Webkinz is going over the edge. They wouldn't let my friend name her pet Buttercup because it has the word ''****'' in it. xD.

At least the KinzChat+ is coming back in 2 weeks. I emailed Ganz && they said.

Ganz would be better off using COPPA then the ****** wrod filters. And yet, they allowed "******" as 1 of my room names! Omg!

---------- o0webkinzrox0o added 1 Minutes and 0 Seconds later ----------

Wow, the word filters here are harsh

Sorry it's been so long since my last post...Real life has a funny way of getting in the way . Anyway, I sent an e-mail to Customer Support asking about this renaming problem. They said that right now their dictionary is very limited, but that they hope to be expanding it very soon. I'm now awaiting an answer to my question of who is privy to the dictionary & why don't they offer alternatives rather than just tell us that our choices are not allowed. Well at least it's something & something is better than nothing???
