There are words or combinations of words that could potentially mean something offensive to another culture or nation, some of which may be slang that is not easily discovered through a search engine. Here’s the core bit from the Naming Policy as a refresher:
We do not permit names that:
Have offensive racial, ethnic, national, or cultural connotations
Include hate speech or bigoted slurs
Reference sexual acts or real life violence
Make inappropriate references to human anatomy or bodily functions
Reference illegal drugs or activities
Reference religious or historical figures
Reference real-life people
Reference names of copyrighted or trademarked characters, materials, or products
Use misspellings or alternative spellings of names that violate any of the above rules
While we realize a lot of names may be created without malign intentions, perception is what matters in the long run. For this particular case, it appears that a combination of strung letters in the name “Gubby Huggles” is what’s triggering the filter.
The naming filter is a collection of words, slang, letter combinations, etc. across many, many languages that have been collected since Guild Wars launched in 2005; as such, the Support Team cannot simply narrow down which specific language a string of particular letters may trigger the filter, especially since direct access to the naming filter is limited to a few individuals.
As a last point, to clarify, if a name is not allowed by the naming filter and the name has never existed in the past, we cannot simply “override” it with a button to allow it to exist. If the name was previously censored and it was decided that the name was not in violation of the Naming Policy, a GM can then allow the name back into the game.
As this reply more than covers the initial inquiry for this thread and recent replies have shown this topic to be railing off towards the deep end so to speak, I’m closing it now.
