    Even gmail doesn't allow names with less than 6 chars.

    What I want to know is how to report inappropriate names ingame. There are some that flat out shouldn't be in the game. I don't get why people feel the need to push those boundaries. Will reporting as spam work or is there a better way? And do the GMs even care or is it a fruitless endeavor?

    My toon's name is Snut, so I don't think that the length is too short for the OP's character.

    I like toons that have a theme to their names, and as such on most MMO's I play you can find me as Moistmuffin, Moistcake or Moistbread. Why? Because in game I always tell people that with me I won't cut or scrape the roof of your mouth, instead I'll always be there to Tank, Heal or DPS - whatever is needed, I'll do.

    However, this game and turbine games as well, flag Moistmuffin as inappropriate, in fact they flag anything with MOIST, so I've had to use MoystMufin instead...which is stupid looking.

    Now I could understand if I was trying to name myself Moistpanties or Moistc**t, sure, flag that. But leave my cupcakes alone!

    Lol, you realize that muffin is slang for female genitalia right? And calling it moist, just adds to the slang of that word.

    I wanted the name Hardcock, because I like chicken that is really tough.

    Inappropriate versus already taken would be worth making the distinction.

    I think everyone in my guild hurried asap on the first day to save the names they wanted. I don't know any Svens, tho

    I see what you're saying, but I guess this may just be a difference between the slang usages of words like the "chicken word" **** and the word muffin, which is pretty different IMO.

    For example I don't know many people who have used the word muffin in a sexual way, but that's just me. On the other hand the word **** is rarely ever used, again around me only, to actually describe a fowl, similar to how the word "kid" is rarely used to describe a young goat.

    Granted I suppose anything could be used to describe something deviant...such as Mung, which is a bean. But when I add "The" in front of it the urban dictionary tells me a whole different story...sigh, english is such a crappy language.
    If you like Rift, or Rifts from Palladium, you'll probably like Ave Molech by me.

    The minimum is 2 letters. I know this for a fact as one of my guildmates has a 2 letter name.

    I know you may think this is funny, but it's not. There's children here.

    Get some help, man. You're sick.

    If you really want to find out if your inappropriate name was indeed only a name that was already taken, try to friend that name in game. If you can friend that character then of course it was already taken. You can then add him to /enemy

    lol wut?

    I'm assuming you're joking cause Sven is a pretty common name in the colder parts of northern Europe.
