Hi all, I am posting regarding the profanity filter used when creating, or choosing a username for the Uplay accounts. I completely understand why the filter is in place, and overall, does a good job of keeping insensitive or rude usernames off the community, however sometimes I feel it's a bit too harsh.


For years, I have had the username "willyWillba", and have used it for every online game account in the past 10 years. Recently, I changed my Uplay username temporarily with the intention of changing it back. However, due to the profanity filter detecting the word "willy" in the username, it's not allowed. I feel like the filter should be a little more context sensitive, or at least give us the option to appeal our username choices.

Any and all feedback welcome, and I hope to hear some support :)

Thanks,
Will.
