Kicked for name?

Question

TommyGunn    0

I've been kicked (twice now) for my in game name, Tommy Gunn, for "No famous/fictional names". I don't quite understand why. This was the name I applied with, and got accepted using. Secondly, this is not a famous name, it's actually sort of my name (nickname, more so). Which, also, makes it non-fictional.

Looking forward to clearing this up!

I just googled that name and Tommy Gunn seems to be some kind of pornstar/porndirector. I guess that's the reason why you get kicked for it.

To avoid this happening again I suggest you change your IGN.

You can keep your backstory just try stick clear of famous names. I suggest checking the name you've chosen (via google) to see if it is a famous person or not so you can avoid this continuing.

I find it slightly humorous that a mod found the relation so quick. Unless he Googled the name, too.

I wonder if he is family....

I guess I'll change my name....

I appreciate the help. Probably should've Google checked to begin with, just didn't think it was necessary.

Pretty much what Sung said.

Try using google to verify if your character name is famous or not and steer clear of famous names to prevent getting kicked in the future.

Firstly Tommy Gunn is a character in one of the Rocky movies, secondly after googling the name the porn star name popped up. That is why you were kicked twice. We do not allow fictional character names to be used as Role Play names. As suggested you can keep your backstory but change the name.

Victor Cruz is a very popular Hispanic name. Not to many people named Tommy Gunn. Never seen Blizzard Kronic in game

I think going off of secondary characters in movies is a little harsh, as that will rule out plenty of names.

Regardless, a name change is happening as soon as I log in.

Thanks, again, for the pointers.

You have a point. In my defense, I didn't really get into american football much and it is a common name among Hispanics.

Was only an example from the top of my head, I am sure I could find more if I dug. No hard feelings.
