It's drivning me crazy!
A simple word as "good" in my language is a **** word. Really???
I tried to nominate a wayspot, but when I tried to upload it, I got a warning saying the description (non-english) contained a banned word. No help what so ever.
So I had to take away one word at the time to find out that apparently "good" is a bad word.
I can think of worse things to write, that probably wouldn't get any stars at all...
It wouldn't allow godt?
It was weird for me that i couldnt use the word for the government of war time germany. Now I had to say just Germany. Which feels like not correct because it has nothing to do with current Germany.
probably this word has in other context in USA. But in Europe its used to make difference between the government in current germany and the Germany in 1933-1945. In a historical context it should thus be allowed I think. Especially if its about a historical memorial or so.
Gode - as in good old days...
Funny, I'm allowed to use it in here though...
God is a banned word?
Was it the N-word?
If it has gone through can you put in an edit for it to become NSDAP or the correct German term which is way too long for me to remember.
The prohibited terms created by the Wayfarer team are very poor.
Non-English terms are especially poor, and the mere presence of the spelling of the word in a sentence will cause the upload to be rejected.
I had previously filled in the Japanese word "はげむ", which means "to challenge" in Japanese, in the description, and the "禿（はげ）" part happened to be identified as "bald", which is the same reading, and could not be uploaded.
After noticing this, I used the kanji character for "励む" and was able to upload the file.
I posted about the same experience I had with you before, but that post was censored or taken to another room and not returned.
Same, their filter is blocking me from putting "Negeri" (Malay for "State") in titles and descriptions, which is very annoying when I'm trying to submit things that have it in the official name or title. Heck, it's even in the official name of one of Malaysia states, Negeri Sembilan. Niantic can put the word in the address field but I'm not allowed to have it in the title.
Without the i you get a German racist word, you probably know already what it means
