Names!/ New Rule


#22

That is a fantastic pairing of words!


#23

Next time I’m leader, maybe that’ll be my family’s name. :stuck_out_tongue:


#24

I’m thinking it’s ok? I mean, if you can go by Picklearmy, one Pickle that happens to need tickling can’t be much of an issue, right?


#25

Like the idea. But implementing it well is going to be a challenge. Defining what is acceptable can be hard enough within one’s country’s corders. Defining it on an international scale is a much tougher challenge. Some perfectly tame words within one culture may be quite offensive within another. Plus what is or is not offensive is a rapidly changing line nowadays.


#26

This is so true, especially with everyone being so sensitive.


#27

Does this apply to race names too?


#28

As an example, in today’s age, some might not think Terror of the Night is appropriate. But truth be told, it is just a reference to a kids cartoon, Darkwing Duck.


#29

@TheBigOne if it is possible for you to change names, why can’t you change names to something that matches the fams current theme?


#30

They had three days to do that. 4 people changed, 3 didn’t… Guess that sucks for them.


#31

Loll I’m asking for future rounds…let’s say there was someone who wasn’t aware, wasn’t in forums, etc…would it be possible?


#32

That’s like a speed limit. They are posted and expected to be followed. Do you still get a ticket if you go 100 in a 55, and say you didn’t know the limit?

However if it’s a new join, and the round has started, yes they can pick a name.

Names can be changed for 48 hrs after you join, just like a race change. (After round starts)


#33

Oh I never knew that, so unrelated to mandatory name change, if I join a round and then want to change my name I can do so 48 hours after the round starts?

Do you know how many times I wished to change my name after round starts but always thought I couldn’t because the Round started ha ha. Well
@TheBigOne thank you!


#34

Ahh! Yah there was even a merge round once where we allowed race change after that happened. But yes if you join a family and want to be included with the name, just send the game moderators a message and someone will help you take care of that :slight_smile:

Hi everybody,

This rule has been removed in light of recent developments to staff structure and policies. Thank you @TheBigOne for addressing the root issue here, and thank you everybody else for your feedback.

To be clear, improper names are still a violation of our rules, but we have changed our enforcement policies.
