A weird "bad word" that is blocked, 3.0

Post by TimberRaven » Sun Mar 08, 2020 1:42 am

Hello! This is a bit of a petty question (and request), but I'm curious to see why the word "pronounced" is blocked in WQ3 wolf biographies? I usually start my biographies like "[wolf name] (pronounced WULF-name) is [backstory/personality/appearance details]". But I can't write the word pronounced, because it always turns into asterisks (**********). So I have to rephrase my sentence, and it's a bit annoying. That, and if I use the word "pronounced" later in the biography to describe something to do with the wolf or whatever, I have to rephrase that one, too! A bit weird, I think. I'm curious as to why it's blocked.
And along with that, I would like to be able to write longer biographies for the wolves. It's kind of hard to give a good rundown of a character in such a tiny paragraph, especially when you're trying to include a little bit of backstory, and big, fancy words. Just a suggestion :)
Thank you!

I've had problems like this before, but I've never tried writing pronounced in the wolf bios. probably because I don't really use names that are hard to pronounce. Instead, I have a wolf named Tetra (a type of fish), but I can't write it in the bio or have it as her name.

And yeah, more space for more words would be awesome!

Wait, so you're saying the word "tetra" is blocked? That's so weird! I've also noticed that a bunch of other seemingly-harmless words are blocked, too (though now I can't remember any of them, figures). Maybe it's a weird glitch? :lol: :roll:
