Offensive Language

Does anyone have or know where I can find a list of all the words that are known to be censored by B.net when you try and upload a map?

Unfortunately, I fear that even if you find such list, it would be ridiculously too long considering on how Blizzard acts with censorship in general.

The closest clue you can attempt is to put the words in your map name OR in your map's extensive description (both things showing when you click on a map's description over b.net) then attempt to publish (but not sending it) it to see if the Blizzard's auto-censors will complain about it.

Dang. While I'm usually happy to do my own trial and error, that seems like too much work for what basically amounts to a joke. I'm toying with doing an SC1 campaign and was planning on having a foul-mouthed Dominion Commander and peppering his language with the more bizzare forbidden words in SC2. Ah, well.

Use bizarre euphemisms, much like Andrew Hussie does for Problem Sleuth and Homestuck

I wonder if you'd get banned for making a map where you feature the Marine's pissed audio line from Starcraft 1 when he says chickenshit.

More than likely, yes, as it's highly unlikely many people on their moderating team have ever played the original game.

As awesome as PS was, Homestuck is indeed a much superior product.

I should catch up. I haven't been reading it for a while since I reached the last bit a few months ago and he went off to a side project.

That was pretty much my Plan B.

Oh man, Problem Sleuth. Awesome stuff. I haven't read Homestuck or any of the others though. I'm saving them for a day when I've got a lot of free time and required something awesome.

Homestuck has got quite a slooow a boring start, but halfway act 2 it gets progressively more awesome to the point of universe collapse.
