Jap is a known slur against Japanese people. The abbreviation you are looking for is JPN.
Not that I expect anyone anywhere to be able to do anything about this, but I ran across another "disallowed" word today while uploading a nursery. It took me forever to figure out what the problem was: nordic. I was just trying to describe the design as nordic inspired, but apparently that's just too close to using the word "d*ck*. The filter needs to be a little more discriminating. I get it that they don't want people uploading bedrooms called "Big D*ck Central" on a site that kids can see, but this is a perfectly innocent, minimalist nursery. smh
I see several items on the Gallery with the word "nordic". Perhaps another word is being blocked? If you still have the text you wanted to upload and want to PM it to me, I can look into it further.
My sims name is Analia Ferrara and it says its a disallowed word and i really wanna upload my sim to the gallery
I had a sim family with a stay-at-home Dad who was Russian, and all the children got Russian names. Apparently Annushka (means "grace"),the eldest daughter, was not allowed to be uploaded. Apparently the beginning of the name is one "n" away from being offensive, so I had to shorten it to "Nushka".

Vamp is disallowed for the gallery. Whilst the word has several meanings its use as an old-English slang for a 5lut is probably the cause of its banning. I think you would be hard pressed to find it being used in its slang form these days; it was well out of usage by the 1960s. The origin of Vamp is the behaviour of Vampires. All vampires are prone to vamping by definition. Vamp is a commonly used contraction of Vampire. We even have a pop group called The Vamps. Which is very clever seeing as a vamp is a type of musical riff; Keith Richards (The Rolling Stones) uses a famous vamp in the song Start Me Up. I don't think Vamp should be censored from the Gallery.
"Vamp" is not disallowed. There are many uploads in the Gallery with the name "Vamp". If you are encountering a warning message in your game, perhaps another word is triggering it?
