    Wow, just.. wow.

    Fits well to their "no public forum" policy and all the guerilla marketing that happened to create hype.

    You're right....nazis. Everyone.

    Come on guys. Are you kidding? Shouldn't all people who name themselves screwyou be banned? I would sign up for that. At least it might limit the anonymous people from hating on other people for no reason. Kinda like this threads theme.

    So who else has an agenda they'd like to display? You guys are really making a name for yourselves....Misaris and Fratman

    Tell us more about these agendas, Dwarfus. What do you think our agenda is? Where are we getting are orders from? Do you find people in your everyday life also have these hidden agendas that you sometimes uncover?

    I like how you deleted the comments...nice approach. You asked, so I'll just quote the previous quote.

    I guess this is the downside to not having a monthly fee. Arenanet can ban people for any little offense and not really lose anything. They don't have to work for a customer's continued loyalty and sub fees. That's also why there's no endgame to speak of either. lol.

    My previous response (which you already read and deleted):

    Do you have an agenda here sir? You go from Arenanet not having a sub fee which is true to them not caring about customers long term which is a real stretch (and false as any person who has ever worked in a capitalist system would know), to Arenanet not having an endgame in place.

    Classic agenda flow of logic. 

    So what is your game of choice Fratman? Why you so bitter? You don't have enough beer pong and lying to sorority girls to keep you busy?

     

    Can we please stop posting now? I don't know where you get your orders from....but there are so many more thoughtful and productive orders that could be given so whoever is in charge over there should just step down and take a hiatus.

    It's just a bit extreme.  A name change could be easily done.. also, how offensive is Poopy Joe or Screwyou.  Not very offensive at all, not to anyone over the age of 8.  Where do you draw the line?  Would Toilet Brush be banned?  In beta I named my character Forest Gump, is that not acceptable?

     If he named himself faggot or nigger then a ban would be completely justified.  Banning someone for the name Poopy Joe or for making a joke in bad taste shouldn't be enough for a straight up ban.  People aren't even getting warnings...

     

    It just seems a bit heavy handed.  It's not like they're in rp servers...

    Swaring should not get somoene banned when theres a profanity filter.

     

    Also I hardly use the map chat. I say thx if someone revived me or something.

    The profanity filter is in place for the protection of players. sometimes my young kids watch me play and the last thing i want is for them to be subjected to some potty mouth. Then there are just people that take offense to being subjected to foul language and inappropriate chat.

    But...the ToS in any MMO in history CLEARLY states that inappropriate language will not be tolerated.

    A "profanity filter" should not be thought of as a "potty mouth enabler"

    OP contact Anet support,  your account was most likely hijacked and no one on this forum can help you.

    The rest, it warms my heart to know some of you were banned for inappropriate names or misbehaviour. People won't tolerate your puberty issues. They don't care, they just want you out of the way so that they can undisturbedly play.

    Its nice to know they take there naming policy serious.

    if it was for the name when the temp ban is lifted youll need to rename undoubtedly, pick better next time.

     

    persay instead of poopy-joe go with joe dirte

    Except the name Joe Dirte is also against their naming policy. Check the part about copyrighted names and about intentional spellings to get around that. Granted, I'm not sure if they will follow through.

    There's a really good fix for both those problems. Don't play GW2 if being offended is such a concern. It's much easier for you to just not play the game than it is for Arenanet to monitor and punish everyone else on the server for using "potty mouth" langauge occasionally. 

    Why would you even want other people to censor themselves in chat just on the off chance that you might offended? What a weird mentality to have when it comes to playing an online/social game.

    I'm not denying they should send a warning. I just think the argument ends there.

    The rest of this thread's argument is nonsense. And at some point, trying to make a point an argument of anything further by repeative posting becomes an agenda. I rest my case and my head. If you all want to continue to delete half my posts to try to make some justified reason why Arenanet is crazy go right ahead.

  • MelonCiderMelonCider Bronx, NYPosts: 13Member
    I had to google poopy joe because i didnt even know what it means. And I dont think its fair to ban someone because of that, even the OP seems like he didnt know what it meant. I dont want to be wary of what type of names i need to make, I planning to use my name but still...people may come out with a name and think its harmless just to be banned without notice. Although i dont like seeing people walking around with a name like "sjkrjrjrodjenooo" or something
  • wrightstufwrightstuf Carlsbad, CAPosts: 655Member Uncommon

    Devs tend to be alot more forgiving with names that may infringe on a copyright as opposed to an offensive name.

    For example, in WoW, I named my hunter "Barnes Noble"...Blizz changed ithe first name. As it turned out, they came up with a female name, lol. (char was male). I emailed them pleading for at least a male name and to my surprise they came thru. They emailed me back telling me to submit my 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choices from which they picked and made that the permanent name.

    No, being grown up comes with alot of insight, in this case the acceptance that other people may like other things than what you like even when those things are regarded as silly in your opinion.

    I really hope the staff keeps this policy up.

    It has been proven again and again that a big portion of the mmocommunity just can´t control itself nor can make use of any amount of common sense and netiquette, so i am all for them learning the lesson the hard way.

    Of course, i would make those bans just temporary, it´s not like people should lose their money and effort for having a bad day or screwing up,  but a few days of being banned would do the trick.

    People need to learn that they can´t get away with being asses or trying to be funny in a nasty way just because  a screen keeps them hidden from the rest of the world.

    Wow, just.. wow.

    SO people are getting badden for being douches on launch day. How dare they. I am sure there customer department is just twidling thumbs and have plenty of time to review each case on its merrits, discuss it with fellow workers and yield a fair and well thought out judgement...

    NOT.

    Tip of the day: Dont annoy GM's on a launch day, or they will take away your fun and put you in a corner to wait it out, while they help people with real problems, and not idiots who are problems themselfs.

    Banning a player because he created a toon with an inappropiate name would be plain ridiculous. A forced name change maybe, but a straight out ban would go way too far on a buy to play game. Especially since their naming policy is very subjective. Not to mention all the possible translation mistakes when people try to create an English name.

    That said, I don't believe that the OP got banned for the name of his toon.

    I think my account got hacked. That chracter I dident make.

    Im still trying to get ahold of somoene to sort this mess out.

     

    I read on Redit that people getitng banned for saying sware words in chat.

    Banning people on launch day for anything than 3rd party hacks or blatant gold spamming is incredibly retarded. Also see sig.

    Don't be a "Bookah" then. Since I now know what that word means due to some old GW1: EotN footage. I think you're lieing and perhaps didn't deserve a full ban but maybe a written warning and a name change is in order. This sends out a good message I think as I don't like seeing stupid names around. It leaves a bad impression.

    This isn't a signature, you just think it is.

    Poopy-Joe is a good funny name.

     

    Poopy-Joe is an honest man.

    Sounds to me like a hacked account, not a silly name that got your account banned. In regards to the discussion on language it's children who find things like poopy joe funny not adults, no disrespect to the op but just being honest. Hope you get it sorted and wish you the best of luck....
