Question What's classified as an 'offensive' playername?

The recent world map reorganisation has seen quite a few new cities appear in my region of the map.

Amongst the new player names I've seen are a couple that are objectionable, offensive, or just puerile and rude.

I seem to recall the game rules saying something about not using swear words. Some players think they are clever by incorporating swear words into their playername so that they can get around the rules.

When does Inno classify a player name as offensive? Do they check?

Can we report these offenders?

I believe it was when signing up for the game, they are allowed to use anything....it was here in the forum that such name could not be used....but I'm sure I'll be corrected if I'm wrong

Offensive names as: Long-----24cmForyou, another one called himself "idiot", another one I´ve found called herself "hooker", and well, anytime I see their nicknames I just chuckle.

A report can be made at anytime. Contact support directly. Or, in many cases, you can click a report button (example from a post made on the Forum, etc.)

Whether any action is taken is another matter, that we (or the reporter) probably will never know.

I have seen a city name being changed, supposedly after complaints. I am a 100% sure it is the same player, so something does get done at times, although we might not know exactly what.

Haha, I'm being amused by the idea of a thread that's asking us which words can't be used! I'm reminded of a segment in a radio show from years ago where they used to list words that were not allowed to be said on the radio... but of course all the words were beeped out - hence the comedy of it all.
