Nazi names

hey, i have a suggestion we disable these words on server just as some servers banned name Player so that no one can call himself like that.
as i saw some guy called hitler666 and robot hitler head i suggest we ban words like hitler, SS, etc..

Re: Nazi names

At the moment, there are no banned words in the server, but that can be enabled if there is abuse of offensive language and nicknames. Banning nazi names, I believe it's a bit too harsh. After all, BF1942 is a World War II era game. I'd say you warn (!wname .#) that player about his nazi name, and if he doesn't change his player name, then kick him (!kname .#).

Re: Nazi names

i did warn those 2 guys 2 or 3 times already i believe, but no response, so i kicked them everytime
also i agree this is ww2 game but i dont agree that hitler should be mentioned because as far as i remember in singleplayer there isnt hitlers name, so i believe if EA didnt put it in gameplay why should someone have nickname like that

Re: Nazi names

This is a sensible topic, Denny. Well, EA didn't put Hitler name or any nazi propaganda in BF1942, because they would be called responsible for that. When a player uses a nazi nickname, it's their responsibility. EA could have coded in the game something to prevent people from choosing nazi names, but they didn't. As far as I know, no game censors using nazi nicknames.
I, myself, don't get offended if someone uses a Nazi name. Don't get me wrong, I don't support any extreme right-wing political movement. It's just my view. I understand that some people feel offended, but every nation in the World War II comitted atrocities, for example, Stalin and his infamous Gulags. That's why I think, It's a bit harsh censoring nazi names.

Re: Nazi names

That's impossible, Denny. You'd have to make a list of all banned names and tell players to learn it. Where would u set the line? Would Himmler be banned, but Rommel allowed? I can imagine u checking all officers on wikipedia. Sorry, but that's a silly idea. Let's stay with kicking clearly offensive names.

Re: Nazi names

Exactly, no banned names. Look at it this way, the more rules you have the worse. Keep as much freedom as possible, and kick them manually if offended.

Re: Nazi names

Whenever someone uses a nazi name, first warn them, then kick them, if they still keep the nazi name after several warnings you are free to ban them for 1 day or 3 days, like, !bname3days .#. If we were to censor nazi names, when a player using a nazi name entered the server, he would be automatically kicked from the server, without ever knowing the reason.
