Is it time to bring up the "bad word" filter again?

I think it is. Given I can't use the word "relationship" in my squad name for this upcoming mega. It's a very topical word.

Why do I get the feeling it's pinging on the substring "relations"? Please tell me it isn't because that would be one of the more absurd and idiotic ones. The filter just needs removed entirely in my opinion.

EDIT "Marriage" is also blocked, so who knows. Maybe "relationship" really is too salacious for this game.

    The filter cannot simply be removed.
    It is being tweaked from time to time as my bandwidth permits.

    I feel like it's less of a "can't" and more of a "won't."

    But the real issue is that this needs more than one person's attention. A lot of things are happening right now and this is an issue that needs inserted into the stack with those other QoL fixes.

    That picture is not the "one does not simply" gesture. (But I appreciate its humor here.)
    I suggest a caption with something like: "The Great @Shan is ever watchful."

    That is the image that everyone uses, though. Maybe people couldn't originally get a good screencap of the right gesture? It's the "Play it again, Sam" of LOTR.....

    Inappropriate comment removed. ~Shan

    Understood. I will adjust accordingly.

    P.S.: I am stretched enough. Just, please, stop with the new stuff if it’s only going to add drama. I could watch movies for that & be happy.

    There are a LOT of weird things about the game. That Crew, Ships, and Events aren't regularly added to the exception category is one of them. I keep getting an add for Chase Bank in Spanish, like three times a day. Had it in English once. Have gotten others in Spanish.

    Well that puts my mind at ease that the ad software was spying on me and knew I spoke Spanish. It seems to be giving lots of people the Chase adverts en Espanol.

    So do I, but I use German more often and my Latin is better. Plus, the nearest Chase Bank is 42 miles away and in the next state. I'll take my Napoleon State with seven branches that I know the locations of all of.

    I went through a phase where I was getting ads in Russian. At least I assume it was Russian, it was as certainly cyrillic. And no, I'm not Russian and I barely know half a dozen words of the language.
