Thread: Problem with Character name - Keep name, offensive combos that you can't filter.

  1. #1

    Problem with Character name - Keep name, offensive combos that you can't filter.

    I pointed this out in another thread, but I really don't want it to get buried under other topics, and I think someone at Crypto should either answer this or take a note of it.

    Filtering a single input is fairly easy, you just ban a list of words, like swear words or racism.
    This stops people inputting it as there keep name or character name, but how are you going to deal with a combo between them.

    Here is a fairly obvious example:

    Keep name : Ile
    Character name : Ped

    Both would get through any standard filtering system on there own.

    Together : Ped Of Ile

    See my point ? Filtering 2 words + the 'of' is going to be an insane algorithm and phrase database and I would imagine you probably won't even bother with it, because of the complexity.

    So yea, how are you going to deal with this kind of stuff, and it WILL happen, it took me 5 minutes to think of that 1 example...

    Let them be reported and ban them if they're a problem

    Seem's like a lot of work, a lot of work and management that would be eliminated if you just removed the Keep name system and gave players an account name, that was used in chat. Then separate character names, that only showed up when fighting or playing with them etc. above there main name in the UI.

    so like

    There are always people getting around naming filters, it's a normal workload... I honestly doubt there will be that many offensive naming combinations that don't have an offensive word that can be filtered.

    I already listed one, and another in a different post, I can think of plenty right now where neither word alone would be offensive but when put together would be, and I am a single user...who has had 1 hour to think...

    I just want to hear Crypto's stance on it. It provides different difficulties to standard naming policies.

    This is why we can't have fun/nice things. Someone always gets afraid they'll see a dirty word.

    I don't see how you can not ban Hitler, but you can ban hitler and germany together. Seems like either both should be banned or neither. Ped of Ile is not exactly offensive. I doubt it would be banned anyway. I haven't seen a valid example yet.

    You want us to post an example of something bannable in a place where we can be banned for posting it?
