Is there anyway to report a clan for having an offensive name or promoting racist ideas in the clan name or theme?

Don't bother; the Poon Squad/that era of history that we have to be awkward around due to shooting Jewish people clans are here to stay.

There was at least one clan that was removed for an offensive name.

MASTER clan of course. If there are MASTERS there must be also SLAVES. And slavery is temporarly forbidden in USA.

Dutch East India company. When I first saw the name I couldn't believe it actually. Absolutely disguisting.

If this is allowed to stick around, I doubt Fizztler would get rid of Dutch East India Company.

I think Fizzel Castro has said he's on the side of acknowledging history rather than wiping out offensive content (which I guess constitutes "denying" history, since after all it's only an ignorance of history that you promote by telling people Nazi swastikas are not okay).

But in any case, you don't really have much of a shot since most of the world doesn't have anything beyond a vague awareness of what the Dutch East India Company did. Sorry

fizzer won't ban a clan even if he's very racist i think. they paid 15$ for it. also if fizzer banned t4r before, this new clan Dutch East India Company might not have bought the clan. so bad for fizzers wallet

I have no idea what they did. I suppose - enslavement, genocide, murdering, raping and exploitation? In this case we could ban almost every historical themed clan here ;)

Nog there is no clan called " The Dutch east india company " so look closer next time and get rid of that 200 year old chip on your shoulder. I chose the east India company theme because of its rich history and RP possibilities. We don't chose our clan themes based on what they did wrong, we do it based on intreseting things they did or the themes rich history. political correctness and caution are tossed in the wind since after all this is the internet.

Might want to stay away from Divided We Fall; they're probably going to trigger you.

Fizzer would never ban a clan, but I see no reason he could not force a change in name.

What about this one: https://www.warlight.net/Clans/?ID=222
Apparently the TOS about offensive language does not apply to clan names?

Not sure this should be allowed either:
https://www.warlight.net/Clans/?ID=228

Personally, I don't care. Just seems like Fizzer should state some sort of expectations on clan names.

@ChrisCMU: Kind of makes sense for the rules to be fuzzy, though. WL isn't that big of a game yet and traction matters a ton. Just the fact that more clans are being made is good news- it means that a product/feature is being used (albeit not in a way that Fizzer intended, hopefully).

The worst feeling is when you make something and it turns out your users didn't actually want it. It's also unavoidable, since it's very hard to get a user in a cage next to you so you have to make and test assumptions constantly.

As someone else pointed out, banning any clan who references a group that once did something bad would require a near blanket ban on all historical clans.

To be honest, there's a lot bigger things to get triggered over than someone naming their clan "East India Company"

Also, it's currently impossible to report someone for using the name of a "offensive historical leader" so I'd imagine Fizzer also extends that philosophy towards clans as well.
