That's unfair ! How can you allow these usernames Slutati or Slutiana to mention a few examples off my head ?

Right, I will choose another...

The rules were changed right after that and they certainly would not be allowed now.

The censoring of usernames is a bit much it's just a tiny little icon next to someone and it's not like it's hurting anyway, except maybe making themselves look stupid. I mean the Tati sluts are hilarious.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

You'd be surprised what people complain about. We have set a clear policy that certain usernames will not be tolerated, this resulting from the fact that the right to have your username changed has been very much abused in the past. Some people seem to forget that they should be lucky we give them that right and are pretty liberal about it for the most part.

People won't be able to start threads until they reach 100 posts and have been registered for at least 7 days. You will be able to in a few days.

No. I already explained the rules were tightened after Slutiana and Slutati. So if we now do not allow slut to be used anymore, bimbo goes right the same way.

Forbid all the names already. Bimbo is not rude at all, it's nothing like slut.

Lots of them are being done with no problem whatsoever. So there is no reason to forbid them.

What ?
That's nothing wrong with bimbo ! Why don't you already ban people who make fun of other people or players on that board ?

Well, when you see that some posters can insult others without any consequence, it seems a little bit hypocrite to refuse an inoffensive word like bimbo in a name. But you're the boss after all

Posters do not get to insult others without consequences. I do realize that some people judge a situation different than others, but ultimately people that continuously insult others do not get away with it. Always report something when you do find something, so it can be reviewed.

It is not related to the issue at hand however. It is simply an issue of the rules being tightened. As an admin I have to uphold those rules. I tend to seek the space that I have and be flexible as much as I can, which seems to work fine for 99% of the requests actually made.
