Banned(?) Word

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I just tried to write the word v** down here and figured out that this word got banned. I really don't know why because the english wikipedia  (link to wikipedia but banned too) contains that word too. I think it's time reconsider our banning policy. Cheers

That was my original post. After trying to send it I faced with the following message:

Hey guys,

english wikipedia


in community we dont have only English filter, maybe this "word v** " got some other language filter :manwink:


No, the word is v0n, the german name prefix. I'm very curios how can that word offend someone. Yes community doesn't like the link with e+n.wikipedia.something. I tried to post my question with the link and it wasn't allowed.

@psrquack Thanks for letting us know about this.

As @Apoxxy91 and @MoreTBC mentioned, it was in the German language filter - I've removed the word von from the filter :smileyhappy:


Thank you but what about the e+n?


The forum is designed to only allow you to post in English. If a word appears in a language dictonary other than the English one it'll give you the warning you received because it things you're trying to post in a different language. It's just going to take a while to find words that are classed as foreign but are used in English as well. Does 'e+n' not work? [Get's error message].. Appears not :)

Have you read my blog HERE... It's long isn't it :)

@psrquack Sorry I missed that one before. Should be fixed now


C'mon guys, check your language filter again. It's so annoying. I can't d-i-g a hole.

We've got about 10 different ones and we've been through them for words that could be used in English, but we've missed a few :( Thanks a lot for making us aware of it though, I hope you dig it :)

Well I think it's time to hire the community to find those words. For some reward we are ready to do it.:smileyvery-happy:
