I think your username is even more offensive!

Alright people please all calm down, we have read everyone's point, we'll discuss it with the other mods/admins asap to try and show some consistency.

Re: Official name change thread: Be careful with usernames you request.

I think Slutilo shouldn't be banned as a username. Following the logic of a language, it's not offensive.

Look at that Slut Danilo = look at Slutilo, means the Slut part refers to Danilo (himself) and not to someone else or other posters. While as Slutiana refers to that slut Tatiana = Slutiana.

Re: Official name change thread: Be careful with usernames you request.

We're not actually calling her a slut though. It's satirizing the people who call her a slut simply for going on dates with two different people (shock, horror! )

And anyways, i'm thinking of changing my name soon, I just need some inspiration!

Re: Official name change thread: Be careful with usernames you request.

For me, I just find "slut" is an offensive word anyhow, no matter who it is directed to.

Re: Official name change thread: Be careful with usernames you request.

I don't think it's offensive. No words are offensive, a word is only offensive when the intention is to use it in an offense way. I don't mind when someone calls me a slut, then I'll just reply I'm in high demand and you aren't.

There are always people that will complain .

This is pretty much the reason for not allowing it. We do try to be liberal with usernames but respond to posters' feedback and try to stop encountering the same problems over and again.

There is nothing more to discuss here.

Slutilo is not going to be allowed as a username.

Slutiana and Slutati are the reason why we've cracked down on usernames but we agreed at the time we were not going to force them to change their names. If they ever change them, they will not be allowed to change back.

Re: Official name change thread: Be careful with usernames you request.

I think all should be equal. You either allow them all or none. And tbh, we all love those nicknames starting with Slut.
We should hold a referendum about it .

Re: Official name change thread: Be careful with usernames you request.

When you take over as forum admin, you can poll the users for anything you like.

Until then however, there's nothing more for me to say on this. JustDoIt, choose another username if you want to and it'll be considered.

Yes. Your username " Youizahoe " = " You are a whore " should be reconsidered as well. It's definitely directed to some people on this board, if not to all

Ain't nobody got time fo dat.

I wanted a arrow pointing downwards so it was directed at myself
And yes I'm a whore and I don't mind.

And izaho is a name in some countries, it's also a name for a memorial thing in japan, in Mongolian it's also a word, it's also the 1st form of sing in some language.

Yes I agree you're probably right but that wasn't fully appreciated that the time the request was granted.

I don't think we'd allow it again to be honest as we've received some complaints.

I think you guys got an explanation, now enough with the chatting, thanks.
