Overly Censored Username

Postby BearHoldingAshark on Fri Sep 14, 2018 10:01 am

I would like to know why my username has been censored as of the last big patch.. Nothing in my username seems like it should be censored. Furthermore, why is my username, a concatenated form of "Bear Holding A Shark" censored heavily when teams are allowed to have usernames like this?

I don't know for sure, but my guess would be that the game didn't like you having "ngas" in your name, based on where it chose to begin censoring.

Psyonix is having a lot of growing pains with this feature.
It's censoring a lot of stuff it shouldn't, and not censoring some stuff it should.

Case in point, your name actually got censored in the "haven't skipped the replay yet" area, at the lower right.
I played against a guy the other night whose club tag was [****] in-game, and on the scoreboard, but it still showed [DONG] in the "hasn't skipped yet" area.

Somebody at Psyonix needs to get to work on a shart boost, to go with the shark fin.

I'd personally see if they could distract the guy with the phallic obsession, by putting him on the job.
I think we have more than enough weinermobiles in the game, at this point.

So it sounds like i could fix this issues by removing the g, but I feel like I shouldn't have to make that change in the first place so...

That's certainly possible, however my username is from a specific character on a homestar runner video so I don't want to have to change it.

Also, as an update, it looks like my username has been uncensored, so this issue can be considered resolved. I guess it just takes a little complaining to get something like this sorted out.

Thanks for correcting it, Psyonix!
