    Default About 420 - the evil drug number is no longer allowed?

    Apparently, a player who owned the nickname "420" was recently renamed by moderators. Keep in mind he had this nickname for over a year and it's worth over 800 diamond locks.
    Is that number literally so malevolent and villainous you can no longer allow a player to use it in his name? I am sure alot of players would love some explanation.
    Not the first time a player was renamed despite doing nothing wrong: I remember a player having "Sexy" in his name which got him renamed, despite the game literally having an item called sexy boxers in it.

    Ubisoft, please fix.

    Now out of pure spite I don't think they'd name someone something different unless it has a good reason to it.

    It might have been that the user who owned it somehow advertised or used the name to promote "420" or well joke around with it. With making irrelevant comments about 420 and so on.

    Yet again it might be considered in the grey area. All illegal substances in growtopia are probihited to even talk about. Having a name like that may have a certain effect or would somehow provoke users to discuss about it (I mean like whenever you see some cool name you definetly make a joke or discuss about it.) and I can imagine the owner would somehow "flex" with it and discuss about it as well.

    I think it has some sort of story behind it that we don't know that got these players nicknames being renamed to something else. There could be a lot of reasons to do so and it would be cool to at least know one of them. Maybe it would calm some people down that are interested in such things and have a lot of questions about it.

    Well I think the most wrong thing about this is it's value at 800, h o w? And why?

    I know rare names can go for a fair bit and frankly I don't know the right sum but it's like showing me a loaf of bread and telling me it costs 800 bucks.

    The worst kind of people are those who put Moderators saying their names in their signature. How pretentious.

    The game already contains roulette wheels (gambling), beer (drinking) and cigars (smoking). Now I do understand that all of these are legal in most countries and “420” is not, but still, having 420 as your player name is not encouraging drug use or promoting bad behavior in anyway, it’s just a number. Should all names containing the number be changed? Should all worlds containing the number be nuked? I hope not.

    imagine a new player logging in without a growid and getting assigned _420 and then they get banned for that

    Yes, they should fix it. Not only that, but they should also give an apology. Changing a player’s name without his consent is straight up wrong.

    I never thought that there was a drug called "420" as I'm not really interested in such matters. Don't really know the full story here that led to this decision so I don't know what I should think about it.

    there ain't...

    Just that that number has some sort of association with stoners.

    If it was something inappropriate then changing the name without consent would be justifiable, but over a number? I don't know the facts or whether this story is biased or not, but with the context we're given I feel like it's unfair to change this guy's name over a number. The number 420 can mean so much more besides the number associated with drugs. With this logic, everyone with the names containing 69 or 666 in it are screwed.

    I am also confused and would like and explanation from staff ot a mod.

    I never really saw 420 as a bad name exactly.


    (Oh god. Oh god. Please. I hope I'm not next. )
    They are two types of people in the world. Me and not me.

    just because the cannabis community used 420 as a way to describe their celebration, you do this, automatically assuming it's a evil number to use.

    or is it that moderators are looking for a petty reason to ruin someone's day? do they have nothing else to do already?

    no wonder seth & hamumu didn't want to work w/ ubisoft, hence they sold the game.

    y'all are too anal about the rules, like theres a stick up your ass or something..
