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

I saw a message that was the same colors as this flash before I even put in my username. Ive seen it a couple of times since the update, but It goes so fast I couldnt see what it said. I just know it is the same colors like this one. and like I said it was before I even put in my username, so I am not sure. I dont think there should be anything wrong with Eyecandykid....but who knows with Ganz!

Thanks for the news - hope that it is not as restrictive as the Room Naming convensions.

I find this SILLY. The naming of a pet or account is screened / filtered during the sign up registration process and the adoption process.

was told my during a phone call from GANZ about 7 days ago, that they had a great "glitch" in their naming filter and that they were working on this.. that it was limiting too much. This was in response to my mentioning that on My own account in the NONE seen by anyone, when I had to type in my REAL NAME, it had a fit & wouldn't allow it.. so I had to make up some stupid pretend name just to open my account. I also mentioned that they should fix the format process when a person has to register / adopt a new "suprise" (unknown species) pet from trading cards that we should be able to see WHAT it is before when have to give it a name. I also complained about the new room naming limitations.

I have NOT seen any innappropriate names in WW.. I am on everyday usually & in TR etc..

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"?

You're right, they only use the first three letters of your name with the pet's full name. If you send a letter or package through kinz post, though, your full user name is displayed.
