Username considered profanity


So uhh… yeah. Something that can be done about this? It bothers me to no end. Applies to TPS as well. I should add that my actual Shift account isn’t even linked.

I’m going to add that it is perfectly accepted if I use nite, instead of night. Quite frustrating.

That’s strange… wonder if it’s a mis-translation from another language? I don’t recognize any off-English swearing in that name (though I am only marginally bilingual).

Have you tried replacing the underscore by something else?

Whatever combination of letters that is causing this, its nonsensical from my own knowledge.

I already mentioned that it works when I use “nite”.

My guess is someone built in a filter to catch the N-word and variants, but did it really REALLY badly - kind of like the cucumber incident from a few years back. Apparently, REGEXs are hard…

Yeah, that was my guess too. I filed a support ticket before I got some sleep this morning. Hopefully this gets seen in one way or another.

Tokesy pinged a couple of folks on back channels for you as well.

He told me that he did so. It is highly appreciated!

Just as an update: the team is aware of and looking in to the issue, but there is no timeline on a fix as they need to juggle a number of factors.
