Arrow BREAKING NEWS: WI Member Makes Sense of Webkinz Naming Restrictions

As many of our members have noticed, last month Ms. Birdy started getting very picky about the names she would and would not accept for new animals adopted in Webkinz World.* This has been quite frustrating for those who have had their carefully selected names rejected, especially since Ms. Birdy doesn't give any indication as to what is wrong with the names she turns down.

For the past few weeks, Webkinz Insider member RedBear has been collecting data from fellow WI members, and running her own "tests" in the Adoption Center, to figure out what names are allowed and which ones are rejected.* She has determined that there are certain combinations of letters that, if they appear anywhere in a name, will cause the name to be blocked.**You can check out RedBear's thread, complete with her list of blocked letter combinations and alternate name suggestions here: http://www.webkinzinsider.com/forum/...d-t386700.html

Following Wednesday's system-wide update, RedBear discovered that at least 13 letter combinations that had previously been blocked are now allowed, including "LA", "GO", "TO", and "MAMA".* Be sure to check out her thread for the latest updates.

Thank you! I have read that thread many times to see if a name I want is available,it's frustrating when you try to name a pet and it doesn't work.

It so exciting that some of the letter combinations are allowed again. Redbear's naming thread has been soooo useful in the mean time though. Thanks for the update, Justin!

Yesterday I tried naming my silverback gorilla Grape ape and it wouldn't let me. I was wondering what was wrong with this name. :gor:Robertta

RedBear has been very helpful in all of this...and I am glad some combos are working again! I named my chipmunk today a name that I had been wanting to use, and couldn't.
