    Blizzard will often force name changes when a few ppl report the name. How offensive it is or isn't has almost nothing to do with it. I have known guilds to do this to ppl they have kicked out of the guild or raids as one last way to screw with somebody that left on bad terms. This also is a way that friends would get a free name change for other friends.

    Obviously the name was reported by someone suffering from bloddy diarrhea. People just love feeling offended.

    Oh well, if others have done it before, then it doesn't matter, does it?

    The point here was that the name change of the OP was not some GM enforcing a policy. It was simply done to coddle some random person who got into his or her head that he or she didn't like the OP's name.

    Because God forbid anyone would have to be offended in an online game.

    Well to be fair, chances are VERY slim I'd join a raiding team in which everybody is called something like

    Shit, Crap, Bloodpoop, Scat, etc.. I mean, imagine this

    MT Tauren Warrior: Dungheap
    OT Orc Deathknight: Crapface
    Healer Blood Elf Paladin: Holyshit
    Healer Troll Shaman: Scatter
    Healer Tauren Druid: Scatbloom
    Ranged DPS Undead Warlock: Deadpoop
    Ranged DPS Troll Hunter: Shitthrower
    Ranged DPS Blood Elf Mage: Bloodfirepoop
    Melee DPS Orc Rogue: Stabbingshit
    Melee DPS Panda Monk: Crapbrewer

    Al though they'd probably find it funny, you couldn't pay me enough to play with these people.. Now imagine the ventrilo conversations...

    "Oké Stabbingshit and Shitthrower, you really need to up your dps cause this is just shit! And Scatbloom, your mana is really going down the drain if you're doing 55% overhealing.."

    Seriously? I guess I'm just to old for these kind of things. But well, I don't mind that these people are around, as long as they're not on my server or in my face..

    Hell, yea, exactly...

    On topic: To all ppl saying thats justified - what about Ook-ook and his phrase "me gonna ook you in da dooker" ? Some ppl might take it for " I am gonna rape you in the ass"... So now we ass-raping monkey and crapping blood.. And they force him to name change... That is hypocrisy at its finest.

    PS.: I don't mind any of this, was just trying to find something to compare it with...

    Perhaps completely valid and constructive posts by someone called Bloodpoop aren't as easy to take serious.

    Just a thought.

    That name disgusts me. You should have got a nice ban and a character deletion instead of just rename. Your cry for mercy is irrelevant mister O.P/

    Don't be rude. Post constructively

    I believe and feel the difference between talking about an item poop and a person called poop. Just feels that way to me anyway. Maybe it was the added Blood- that did it... but the moment I started reading your post and saw the name Bloodpoop I felt it was unappropriate.

    That's precisely how the GMs enforce the policy. Someone reports a possible offense and they investigate it.

    I don't mind things like "Brewslee" or "Gnom-something", even I have a couple of funny named characters but your name is not funny at all (unless you are, like, 7 years old) and you have been given the chance of getting another one, grow up and come up with something better.

    "Oh, please, save me, mighty...! Bloodpoop? Forget it, I'll wait for the next one!"
    Soulwind I think you may have thought this was a "Du u liek my naem?/" thread. It is not. <3 Sydanyo. Just shows who gets to keep their name boils down to a popularity contest rather than an actual enforced rule. I was actually reported for the name 'fuggit' on rift one time. Some guy decided that it was too close to 'Faggot'. I had a chat with a gm and I was able to get my name reinstated. He also admitted it was a mistake and apologized.

    There is a big difference between a quest with the term guano and your name of "Bloodpoop"
    Its kinda sad that, thats the case. What offends people shouldnt matter to the OP, unless its something like niggerblaster or retarded names like that. Bloodpoop seems kinda mild for WoW tbh where theres references to sex blood and curses everywhere.

    But that was in vanilla so who knows if it still works.
    Doesn't work anymore. When I tried that a while ago they renamed the new character to something with an additional letter and gave me my old name back. Guess they've been scammed one too many times.

    As for a bit more on-topic:
    I personally would not take offense to the name, but from personal experiences ... shitting blood is far from funny.

    Yea I pretty much agree, there is so much reference to the mentioned things that only trolls can pretend to be offended tbh...

    I find the poop quests to be childish, but they don't bother me. I don't find them to be vile or disgusting. They're just ... poop quests. "Bloodpoop" however is an entirely different animal. I read the name and I feel kind of sick actually. That's disgusting, and it got changed for more than just having the word poop in it, it's the combination of the two words. Honestly I'm glad they changed it, I wouldn't want to be in a raid or party or guild with someone named that and as such I'm glad that such names are reportable.

    Lemme ask you, are you offended by big monkey who wants to rape your ass? That's actually whatone npc says in game... I can understand some ppl can feel sick thinking about bloodpoop, while I am not, but why should his name be changed when there are references to pretty much worse and more disgusting stuff in game?
