Thank you for sending me the files through private message.

 

I took a look at them and did not see any issues with the text.  Are you using mods/custom content?  If so, does this issue still occur when you remove the mods/custom content (prior to launching the game)?

I've literally had nothing in the description and one letter as the title and my only intent was to save the Sims I was creating into my personal gallery and it claimed I had an inappropriate word. So the letter "L" is apparently filthy.

Why is Krauter not an accepted last name?

★ Novice
It's literally my last name. Why is it considered offensive?

Hi there,

I don't know if this is something that is explained here, but I will explain how our filters work briefly.

 

Our filter system is like one big giant file that has all languages and their disallowed words or combinations of words in it. words in some languages will affect other languages in some cases.

 

For the case of Krauter:  We checked with the German tester as the problematic word “krauten” may be indeed a problem, but he said it is not really used. Also the word “kraut” is used in English as derogatory for German people, but it is not used in German in general. Hence why it is on the filter because it could be a problem.

 

However because it is not widely used, I will ask to see if we can remove it. No promises though.

Sorry for the trouble.

Thanks

it says my sim name is not allowed

 

Her name is Kisha Bee

I don't see why a simple name like her isn't allowed

I just now tried uploading a Sim named "Kisha Bee" and was able to do so. Are you sure it's not another name/word somewhere? Thanks!

I must admit I got a chuckle when I opened this thread to find that on one of the first replies someone with my exact issue covered it.  I can't make my simself because my last name is Cox and it's not allowed.
