Is a theurgist called petpooper offensive?

Just got a warning and char renamed that I haven't played in about 3 years. Is poop that offensive? This game has a Teen rating right.. what teenager gets in trouble for saying poop? It's a theurgist who poops out pets, aka a pet pooper.

On a good note bs is doing stuff! Or do you think this was just automated?

    would make sense if I have played this char in the last few years : )

    recently returned to the game and have not logged on petpooper, or the warlock bubblepooper who also got renamed (a lock who poops chambers, that was made back when locks came out).

    I see where you going with that but I used the verb pooping and the correct word for the action to not be offensive (i guess i could have used defecate but i think poop fit the childish name i wanted)
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feces
    There are many synonyms in informal registers for feces, just like there are for urine. Many are euphemismistic, colloquial, or both; some are profane (such as ****), whereas most belong chiefly to child-directed speech (such as poo or poop) or to crude humor (such as crap, dump, load and turd.).

    I guess we cant have child-directed speech in our names? I thought you had to be 13 to play this game? and its got a Teen rating right?
  • Petloaddropperoffer?

    Just having a little bit of immature humor here. lol
  • Also there at atlest 150 chars whos names start with poop but mine is the only ones renamed?

  • Poopedmahpants. Must be allowed as I’ve done that!! lol not my toon tho.

    Like previously posted someone probably objected to the name and probably also hates Theurgists. I know I do unless playing one.
  • Considering some of the names I have seen in recent years this surprises me.
  • Nice to see they hiring new csr:s
  • The name was probably changed since it violates rule 1 of the naming policy. When a character name is being changed, the account as a whole gets checked for possible additional violations, which is why names of characters were changed that you had not logged in for a while.

    If you feel like this action was an error, you can send an email to dispute@darkageofcamelot.com from the email address associated to your game account with a brief description of the issue, and the action will be reviewed.

    If you see a name ingame that you feel is a violation of the naming policy, you can appeal them as a violation report, and it will be investigated!

    population might grow a little if we let people have "poop" in their names...
  • Well It's definitely going to be short 5 account now due to this. Even if the names get fix (I applied as soon as I got the email) because this has caused way to much stess for a game that is dead during the time period my family can play at (1am eastern time).

    My biggest issue with the name changing that they do it without your knowledge. They don't give you the option to pick a different name before you log in again... Aka 3-4 of my toons have been name nerfed in the past and given absolutely retarded f*cking generated names. This pissed me off. I haven't played these characters since, or even deleted them just because of stupid useless name. I hear that birds let you rename names before playing again. Just what I hear.

    Good for you though. Cancel those subs. I must have prepaid a 3 month time card a few months ago and that's the only reason I am still able to comment here I think (I logged in today for the first time in 3 weeks and did 1 run and /lol'd a little at how crappy it was) I love seeing BS doing erroneous things like nerfing names and losing subs because of it when there are far more significant things to be dealt with...
  • If the name of a character was changed by Customer Support, you can open an Emergency Appeal with three naming suggestions, and given they are in accordance with the rules and available, the character will be renamed to one of your suggestions.
