The word "Nibbler" is red in open chat. Nibbler is a sentinel fish in the game so it should be allowed to be said. How else do you propose this fish to be talked about?

Unfortunately because of the misuse of some words we have to resort to descriptions for some named items eg Queen Crape Myrtle and Nibbler....there are a few others too. It's irritating for people who want to use them innocently but preventing someone from saying something disturbing to another player, possibly a child, is more important than the inconvenience.

It's been suggested that KI only choose names that can be said safely within chat and I think that solution makes sense but on the other hand I like the names they've chosen too so I have mixed feelings. I don't think allowing words that could be used in an upsetting way is a solution.

TBH I find the 'no numbers for text chat players' far more frustrating than the odd occasion when a specific name can't be written. It's a real shame that there are some people who would deliberately exploit chat features in a family friendly game.

Thank you Victoria. Any word can be used in an upsetting way. I had written about 'Nibbler' fish to Customer Support and they told me to make a post here so that KI moderators would look into it. They can easily change the rule on this particular word as there is no other way to type the name of this fish. They had made changes to allow the typing of "Renee Wooften" which was yellow when the NPC was first introduced.

I am hoping to get a result from KI to type 'Nibbler' as there is no other work-around.

Here is the Customer Support message saying to make a post here: (PS: Just noticed they signed it as "KingIsle")
