Arrow BREAKING NEWS: New "Inappropriate Username" Notice

We have been receiving scattered reports of a new message popping up during the log-in sequence on some Webkinz World accounts.* In all cases, the message disappears quickly, and so far no one has had to select a new username.* Could this be a sign that Ganz is going to start cracking down on names that are unsuitable for Webkinz World?* It certainly appears so.

i got this message, but it came up BEFORE i had logged in!!!! so how did it know my name was inappropiate. if it had came up AFTER i logged in, then i would have to think twice!!!!

i hope this isn't something they implement unless it is a REALLY unsuitable username.....
thanks justin....

I have seen this pop up a couple of times, but it happens to me after I log out of WW, before it gets back to the log in screen.

I haven't seen that, but I always thought WW made sure the username was appropriate BEFORE it became active ~ just like when naming your pet...

Thanks for sharing ~ if I see that box I won't freak out now, lol.

Someone in the clubhouse saw a message quickly come up and then dissappear, this may be what she saw.

I've seen this icon BEFORE logging in. I hope this isn't likr the whole naming Webkinz thing. If so I'm going to be very furious with Webkinz.

Rage74 is an unknown quantity at this point

Default Re: BREAKING NEWS: New "Inappropriate Username" Notice

I'm gonna hazard a guess that my name, "Rage", isn't going to pass WW's test. After all, I tried to name my Leopard Lizard "Larry" and it was refused.

However, correct me if I'm wrong...but you don't often see a username's full username, do you? Don't they always say "User [1st 3 letters of name] with [full pet name] won the bingo!" or something like that? I always thought it was to prevent other people from taking the username and trying to hack the account.

Unless it's something new for the "My Page" thing. Do they display the full name there of people who are not your "friends"?
