What is with the profanity filter in the creation centre? I have a friend of South Asian/Pacific Island decent whose name is Likkit. Now tell me where the profanity is in that name because apparently it does not fly with the current language filters? This is ridiculous, especially for a name that I cannot see be profane at all. Anyone else having issues with the profanity filter on non profane names?

Not as bad as Shilton, as in the world famous Peter Shilton. Somehow Shilton is inappropriate so I've had to call him Peter Shillon

I think I mentioned to you on a previous thread that I had to get creative with a couple of names on North Korea due to the filters.

My name "Spike" has been added to the commentary list yet you can't have Spike on the shirt as "*" is a racial slur lol

Yeah, I tried to make * Kobayashi and there is something wrong with *. Is that still a slander for Italian people? Isn't it spelled differently. Also, I couldn't make * for Al-Ahli because it's profane in Spanish. How ridiculous.

Tugay Kerimoglu & Davor Suker also don't work.

Ridiculous.

It's all a bit strange I was allowed to keep Luvta Farkas as there is another Farkas allready in the game. So many oriental names will be banned which I feel is victimisation of those people.

Hello there!

I'm trying to create a team for Didcot Town which is one of my local non-league teams. I've been trying to the make the right winger, a chap by the name of Paul Hannigan, but apparently his surname contains profanity. Am I niave? I have no idea how the word Hannigan can be offensive. Should I be using it as an insult more often?

Could someone from EA please explain? (and then fix it from being so bloomin' stupid)

Thanks

Tom

Filter doesn't like T_U_G or S_U_K

I can't use "Bush" because EA is compromised of mainly school children, but somehow I'm getting away with Seymour Koch. Even Tyler says *. Go figure.
