I can't say box or month and you can have a name like that?
I am really not like their language filter very much at all! It allows very little to go through, very, very tight. If we had this type of filter on here, I wouldn't be here. I find it, not only frustrating, but tiresome as I go through my THESAURUS to explain a sentence to someone.
It also appears that if you type too many words that show up red, your send ability is 'suspended.' At least that is what happened to me. Three strikes and you're out. I think I tried to use the word, 'One, Husky and Action' after that I couldn't send any more messages. Kind of like it was automatically disabled.

The way GANZ has created their filter is the opposite of what you all are thinking. Basically they have a list of ALLOWED words, not NOT ALLOWED words. The problem with this, of course, is that the only words that end up on there are words that they have thought of to include or deliberately leave off of it.... and this means creative pet names aren't allowed because they're not on the list. When I spoke to an agent on the phone once I asked about this, it was verified.

So the reason you can't name your room "Conservatory", or "Planetarium" is because the list creator at GANZ doesn't have a very big vocabulary.

This is the same way the list is used in Quizzy's. Several times I have played that game and tried legitimate words (especially 8-letter ones to net me a big score) and it won't allow them even though there's absolutely nothing wrong with the words.... it's because nobody thought to use big words when they made up the list (but success at the game relies on big words... so go figure).

likmfurry, I think the reason it was geared that way was the ORIGINAL purpose for Webkinz was not rated 'E' for everyone, but more like a 'Kids only' type of zone. WE are the ones who made it into the site it is with all the demands. Some of the things HAVE, indeed, evolved, but a lot of the original games are still not quite up to speed. That is the reason a word like 'VOLATILE' stops at the 'L' Most kids in the intended age range don't use words of that caliber.

Lol, my friend couldnt name her googles Scooter! And that is something in the W shop! I find this extremely odd. It wouldnt let me name my pet Max, and I KNOW i've seen other pets named Max, so its just odd.

I read somewhere that they wouldn't allow Buttercup, cause of the first four letters.

I have tried a few different names just to see if it would work and It would let you name your pet Buttercup - ercup

It is wierd

Ganz has their own 'dictionary' of words that are allowed on Webkinz. They don't make a dictionary of words that aren't allowed, so they just have certain ones that are allowed. They probably didn't think of Penelope as a good word. After all, Ganz wouldn't let my cousin name her dalmatian Buttons.

I think some words to us may be bad in other languages. I've seen a word we use like everyday is bad in this weird country. That's really dumb though, because they know we speak english.
