Are these allowed? If not, then why do they not get actioned when they get reported? Is there even a filter in place for clan names? Who receives the reports when a clan name gets reported on the website? Stop playing the forums

I read this cause I am curious too. I have seen a lot of rather nasty neonazi nomenclature out there like variations upon "blood and soil" or "put you in the oven" lately , and I think its difficult to... well... in the UK they always have to look at damage. There is not really free speech to say anything you think is true. It has not to be something you think is true, and not hurt anyone.

right now... maybe it doesnt hurt anyone, but it has too much potential to stigmatize rs the same way that like COD has been stigmatized and will eventually die from the wounds.
We're always ready to disagree with anyone who calls RSOF users contentious.

So you think racists, homophobes, etc deserve a platform to spread their shitty ideas?

In many cases, what may be perceived as a 'hateful' name depends on a context which is simply not present in the clan name.

I fully agree that any hate speech WITHIN that clan should be stamped on hard, but the fact is that just choosing a name like "Blood & Honour" (for example) is never going to be ban-worthy, because it could be taken in a different - and inoffensive - way.

Given the connotations around a name like (for example) Blood & Honour I'm kind of surprised it would be allowed. Although, yeah, in and of itself it can be seen as innocent enough.

I don't suppose Jagex would jump on a Clan name unless it was overtly offensive....I'd give an example here of what I mean but the post would probably get hidden, lol.

Maybe Jagex do a bit of monitoring of Chat for a while if a Clan is formed that has a marginally dubious name, to ensure it's members are not being utterly vile. Probably not, though.
