Introduction

Hey there! This is the name check thread, where you can ask if a certain dragon name is appropriate or not. Inappropriate names are ones with inappropriate words (good rule of thumb if it is censored by the forum, it is not appropriate in any language) or inappropriate themes (adult content or slurs). Just because a name isn't taken doesn't mean it was inappropriate; it just means it wasn't taken. Naming after songs or drugs or alcohol, names in other languages, etc. are all fine as long as they don't contain censored words or inappropriate content. If you would not post about it on the forum, it's not okay. If you would confidently post about it on the forum, it's probably okay.

If you are here to report an inappropriate name, please PM a mod instead of publicly posting it. If it's inappropriate, then it is also inappropriate to be posted on the forum.

Rules
1. Spam posts are NOT allowed. That means no chatting here, though you can say if a dragon's name is appropriate or not if a user requests it, even if you aren't a Name Checker.
2. Use the lineage/code link instead of view/code link, please.
3. Follow DC's general rules.

How to Request a Name Check:
Name of dragon:
Link of dragon: (Remember to use lineage links!)

How to Be a Name Checker:
Have at least 10 named dragons, must PM with this:

Also looking for moderators. Will be looking if they do the right thing.

Name Checkers:
MisaTange - PM
purpledragonclaw - PM
Classycal - PM

Since
1) no user has decision ability- only a few of the moderators do, afaik, and admin makes final decision
and 2) many of those decisions follow idiosyncratic logic

How is this thread to work..? It would hurt if some thread "mod" here said that a name was fine when it was actually inappropriate, leading the person to not check actual authority.

Sometimes members would like to bounce their naming ideas off of other members to see how it sounds or if it is appropriate. This frequently happens if someone wants to name their dragon in a language other than English.

I look at this as beta-testing names out. While we don't have decision ability, I think we can gauge what may or may not work for naming. We also have DC moderators that go through the threads who can confirm whether or not we are giving members good advice on how to name their dragons.

Moderators are able to give opinions in this topic, or by pm. We will be able to let you know, if a suggested dragon name is appropriate or not.

The word "ho" might be troublesome, since it is slang for a derogatory term used to refer to women. Is there another word you can use instead?

Ummm, what's Santa to do, if 'Ho, Ho, Ho'-ing is to be banned?

I don't think TJ or any of the mods are going to be unreasonable, if a popular misspelling of one term with vulgar connotations resembles an entirely unrelated other, especially as the elimination of all such words in our increasingly slangy society would make serious inroads into the variety and usage of the English language...

Edit: sentence under reconstruction.
Eeek! I'd created a monster.

If you have to ask someone else's opinion on whether or not *they* think it is inappropriate, odds are, it's inappropriate...

Having an opinion can not hurt.

Well, I'll bite-- is the name 'Cock' appropriate for a dragon/chicken or would I get banned, drawn and quartered for using it?

Keep in mind I'm not being vulgar for the sake of it =/ I've got Hens and Chicks, Gallus Gallus, so I figure Cock would be a nice addition to that theme. It's also part of a gun and probably other mundane things I don't know about =p

Any heads up from a mod would be appreciated too, in case it gets reported!

The name is already used.

Male chickens are primarily known as cocks.

Fathead, as long as it is not already used is not a problem.

Haha, loving that surname.

Also, I don't imagine that getting reported.
