I saw a player the other day, whose named contained the phrase "ballslap." I hope that's ok to say, that's not the player's full name. I also hope it's ok to say since it's nasty, but I'm doing it to make a point.







I've similarly offensive names, even racist ones. Why are these allowed? I assume these people have entered names that the system doesn't "notice" as offensive, but does JAGeX at least review the new names each day and make those people change them? They ought to.







And, if the phrase I wrote got blocked out in this topic, I understand. It should be! So why not in Runescape?

Hmmm, i think the word "ball" should have an exception because, well...some people might type in baseball548? But i agree that it should have a filter in the name creation fields as well. I've seen it in other games, so runescape should have it too. Good idea.
Sup noobs.

I remember seeing a "Bastad Ga1" on the RSB forums a few months ago :lol:







Yeah you get some horrible names like "Wh1t3sl4y3r" etc. Theres no way JAGex can ignore racist/sexist etc names.

I agree, their like walking abuse. If they can have an obscene name, why not just make everyone be allowed to talk as they wish.

Well, either they remove the filter, or make sure that they filter everyting.



A matter of consistance.

First off, that post has only your opinion, not why you feel that way. Care to elaborate? Secondly, saying people who are annoyed by naughty names should be SHOT doesn't help anything. Shot. Sounds a bit severe, doesn't it? I realize it's just an expression, but it's uncalled for.







JAGeX needs to keep a better eye on player names. You may be old enough to decide what's right and wrong, but for many, many players, the Runescape environment needs to be more sterile. Sure, younger ages already see plenty of adult things on TV, but they don't need to get them from Runescape, too.







And someone posted earlier made a post about their name, something like "ovulating" and "[garden tool]." Well, that name may not reflect the kind of person you are, but I do think it's inappropriate. I have to ask, why is so necessary to make a name like that? "Cheeseman973" is kid of funny, too, but it's appropriate for everyone. As I said before, that sort joke is fine for adults who are up at 12:30 AM watching Conan O'Brien, but a 12 year old doesn't need to hear it.

I guess that's fine by me, but I'd say you only get one additional chance. Make another inappropriate name, get banned.

This would probably solve the problem, it seems to work.

Funny to someone old enough to understand it. And if you're under 15 and understand it, well, you shouldn't.

ballslap omg!!! o noo the offence how immature..











maybe sexist and racist names should be banned but...only if there is no other meaning for it...ive had a friend who got banned because his name was offencive in a different language...like wtf ! and he was over lvl 90...jagex never said any thing about it until he canceled his member ship











personally i think jagex should go [bleep] them selves (offtopic)

Well, you're making my point for me. We don't need to see you saying those kinds of things in this forum, and we don't need to see it in Runescape, either. You can be sarcastic all you like.







As far as your friend goes, the only thing JAGeX did wrong was not ban him sooner.







By the way, JAGeX makes the game you play and post about. Why continue to play it/post about it if you feel they do such a terrible job?

jagex is already breaking my balls because of all the stuff i can't say and do, so having a rebort abuse for bad names would just be to far... Just let people have there names and don't bug them about it.
