CG Ignores Offensive Guild Name

I was doing a search for a guild we were facing in TW(yes, I spelled the guild name wrong) and came across a very derogatory term on my screen. I made Meathead aware a week ago and it's still in the game. I ask to have it removed as this offensive term has no place on the Star Wars galaxy.

I completely understand how things like this get missed, but when it's brought to your attention and you IGNORE it, you obviously aren't concerned about it and condone that sort of behavior.

Please CG, have some decency and remove the name ASAP!

Thank you,

    How is this even a thing in the first place? This is hate speech in the form of a guild name and needs to be fixed immediately.

    I never heard of this term, now I searched and found it. But it looks to me that you find it offensive rather than it being legitimately offensive. Hence why nothing happened. Someone calling you something and calling themselves is not the same thing. Maybe they should ban our community manager too?

    Are you being serious?

    Have you looked at the foot of the screenshot at the guild name that has been censored?

    Please tell me you didn’t.

    It has no place in the game... Period...

    Youre looking at the wrong thing. Scroll to the bottom of the posted image and you'll see a guild name where the OP blocked a few letters.

    This is a horrible take.
    Based on Maru’s post history, I’m almost certain he hasn’t looked at the image properly. Some forumers might be capable of that genuinely making that sort of statement, but I don’t think Maru is one of them.

    Sorry yeah, I thought what was in question was "meathead militia" which turned to be used in derogatory ways as well. Retracted and agreeing with op.

    I appreciate the support on this. Those that ignore, condone and harbor the behavior.

    Let's continue to grow and improve as a society together, not as individuals.

    The spaces. That's why I wrote that I get how it happens, but ignoring my dm isn't acceptable. I've had open dialog with Meat before so no real excuse imo.

    I truly was hoping it would get resolved without having to make it public. Just remove/change the guild name and let's move on.

    Why not just tag him in your op on the forums in the first place?

    @CG_Tusken_Meathead

    The forums are always the first place you should bring in-game stuff up, not Discord. Plus, tagging the employee you’re wishing to direct messages to tends to help

    I'm on a Discord server with Meat.... The minute he shows up the whol eplace gets stupid and he gets swamped... I can only imagine how many DM's he gets on a daily basis..

    Did you report it in game?

    This is like the complete opposite of my experience lol.

    First - it should definitely be removed.

    Second - you don't know he ignored it. It's probably not in his power to do what you've asked. It seems extremely likely that he either didn't see your message, or passed it on to someone to take care of it. Either way, give the guy a break. He doesn't get paid to be customer support, nor at our beck and call - which is what you're expecting of him.

    For the record - I absolutely agree that this should be addressed post-haste. Have you considered opening a ticket with the help desk? This could easily be considered player harassment and might get a more rapid response going through the proper channels instead of discord DMs or forum posts.

    Wait, wait, wait... the leader hasn't been online in almost 6 years. Has this guild been around that long?? How did this get missed?

    I agree offensive guild names should be changed but don't you think its very hyperbolic to assume the company is fine with it because your DM wasn't replied to?

    Its not like Discord sends Read Receipts and even then he gets bombarded with tons of DMs

    I get bombed with lots of PMs myself at times and I look at some of them at hours when i'm too busy to respond and then forget about some of the issues when I have time to address them

    The case is worse for Meathead

    How would it get caught if someone didn't report it?

    It gets missed because they used spacing to get around the filters...... It's not as if Cg goes through the thousands of guild names on a regular basis to find the needle in a haystack...

    The algorithm won't let us use the word horsemen, but this goes unnoticed for 6 years??

    The word was broken up by white space - you can do the same thing in guild chat and it will sail right through the censor.

    CG wasn't aware of your PM yet but now they are, and the guild should no longer exist :smiley:
