    Given our current linguistic development I believe our results to currently be inconclusive as to the actual meaning of "dook you in the ooker". Therefore it cannot be labelled as lewd or vulgar language. For all we currently know the hozen could just be inviting us into its van for some delicious candy.

    What is nonsense is naming your character like that. I hope you grow out of that kind of moronic humor because if not, you are going to have a very bad life.

    Really, a bad life? Overreact much? I am pretty sure the creators of some very successful shows have had a wonderful life by being adept that sort of "moronic" humor.. Such as Family Guy, South Park and Tosh.0...

    I was referring to the fact that jerks who name their characters like that think its funny to do in an all ages game. There is a reason why the profanity filter exists, and anyone that uses names like that to circumvent it deserves to get a permaban. I have a 5 year old nephew that plays WoW with me and I don't want him exposed to that kind of cesspool. Players like that are what gives gaming a bad reputation and the sooner they either grow up or get out of our hobby, the better.

As far as the reporting, that is all automated now. Once a name gets x number of reports, it forces the name change. I personnaly report ever name that is remotely vulgar or insulting. The sooner childish idiots like get fed up and quit playing (or at least grow up), the better.
    sigh... It's just a name from a movie. http://www.imdb.com/character/ch0002434/
    Little bit childish to get upset over it, don't you think?

    What is moronic about it? There's really nothing wrong with the name unless you want there to be. Monks use their fists to fight, but I guess I shouldn't use that word anymore then.

    complaining that you had to rename when other people got away with it seems a bit ad populum to me

    Along with refusing to rename your toon I suggest you hold your breath and stamp your feet as it is CLEARLY Blizzard who are at fault here and by these actions they shall cave to your demands without a doubt!!

    That would be an "R" rated movie. Again, that is point. WoW is not a mature only title. There is a profanity filter and names like that get through it. It is inexcusable. Nothing childish about being upset when people break the rules to be vulgar. What is childish is thinking there is nothing wrong with behavior like that.

    100% correct. You were reported that's why. Back before Catastrophe was released the day worgens were announced I made a priest named Aworgasm so I could save the name before Cata I was reported had to change my name when Cata came out someone rolled a toon Aworgasm. So you may have been reported by someone wanting to steal your name.

    Lol then don't make a name that you know will likely get reported....

    It's actually fucking hilarious.
    Look! Words!

    Fact is, just because other people may or may not have been reported doesn't mean it's right for you to have the name too. As other have pointed out, the name goes against the ToS. Some find it funny, some don't. Rename your char and play your monk. Shouldn't be about what their name is, entirely, it should be if you enjoy playing the character.
    3 hints to surviving MMO-C forums:
    1.) If you have an opinion, someone will say that it is wrong
    2.) If you have a source, there will be people who refuse to believe it
    3.) If you use logic, it will be largely ignored
    Btw: *Tanaan, *Farahlon, *Arakkoa. Not that hard.

    Why did you actually forced to rename? i dont see what the problem is ? is it offensive in some language?
    There is no such thing as "ability bloat" just l2fp.

    If you want to have names that are against the ToS and subvert the language filter you can't piss people off. Otherwise you rename your monk and deal with it.

    Not necessarily. I made a ticket about a player ages ago and when the GM answered it, he/she told me I'll need to change my character's name when I log back into the game. I asked them if someone had reported me and they told me no one had but it wasn't appropriate.
    It was a name I had used for a very long time and included the word "bewbs". My 6 year old niece says boobs. My guess is that sometimes a GM is just having a bad day or is in a bad mood. Of course you still get them putting smiley faces occasionally in their sentences and thanking you for your report so they're doing a stand up job as always.
