Club Name Limits?

16 replies 204 views Edited Apr 18, 2013

I was just riding my new chopper in pier park an hour ago and came across a group of people with "Smoke Methh Hail Satan" as their club tag.  Now dont get me wrong they were nice to me and not doing or saying anything bad.  Also one was level 8 and playstation plus members and they had on nice fashions etc and they were not just troublemakers.  My question is are there any boundries when naming a club or does anything go?

 

Also while I am at it I would like to point out the great deal I got from ndreams: 9 choppers for 6.49.  It is probably the best deal I have had lately or at least since I got Paris space for 2.99.

Yes there are boundries. A profanity filter. However, if you feel that someone's club name is offensive, and they've managed to by-pass the profanity filter, you can still report them.

 

Face them. Highlight their name and use the report option. Doing so will capture an image so that the Moderators can see the offense.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

I see lots of offensive "club names" ever since the update came out that allows you to display it under your PSN ID. As per usual the perverts are abusing something meant to be fun for others. Either they had a pervy club name to begin with or purposely created one to display. Not much we can do except report them.

I am not sure that name is a violation. However, the display of this info certainly tells you more about the character of the person behind that Avatar; and I see that info as a plus. It is like having a potential criminal stamp a warning on his forehead. It is the user's choice to proudly display that information.

Shame you can't change club names or club tags without having to create a new club. Would be nice if they changed that at some point.

I didnt report them because they were friendly to me and looked like they spent money in Home which makes Home stronger.  I was just kind of curious as to what is allowed in a clubs name.  Also while I was there they said nothing that was anything bad.

Oh hey, that's my club. 
Just to be clear, I don't do any drugs, nor do I worship Satan (or follow any religion for that matter, but I digress).
It was just a saying I saw one day. And I liked it, and made it my club. It's not a real club with meetings or anything, just me and a few friends that just happen to like the name. Don't ask why.


And I didn't bypass any filter, because "meth" wasn't censored, which actually surprised me

Of course, every now and then, people will come up to me, thinking my club name is legit and that I actually do those things. But given the "edgy" title, I don't blame them.


If anyone in Home sees me and does indeed get offended by my club name, feel free to report it.
But I'm not gonna change it. It's just a fun thing between my friends and I, in a weird sort of way.

 

I've seen quite a few club names that were far worse than mine anyway. Cat Tongue

I don't know if it's REPORTABLE, but it is offensive... Everybody knows Jesus was a wine guy. Smiley Wink
