    My name is Fuuk but is pronounced Fook.
    I was just wondering could I get banned for using
    this username since it is originated from a different country and such.
    Thanks.

    If staff think usernames are inappropriate, they can be banned.

    As @Destination666 said, if staff thinks the username is inappropriate, the player will be banned until they have changed their username.

    Depends indeed. I remember someone by the name ''MemeSlutMikey'' who didn't get banned.

    Obviously because he was a meme slut and not a sex slut.

    Still. I don't get how that is not inappropriate enough to ban, while 'cumfused' is.

    As has been mentioned above, it's possible for you to be banned. May I ask, what is your entire username? I'm assuming the full name is Fuuk, so could you use something some as CallMeFuuk, or ItzFuuk so it would be clearer that it's a name?

    I think the staff will tell you before they would ban you, so I do not believe you will be banned. If you are still worried about being banned, you could change your name if you have not already.

    Sad thing is I have been muted on one server and banned from another server because of it and I have to wait like 29 days before I can change

    There was a name hippo_sex (because it sounds bad obviously) that I banned a year ago, that turned out to be BlueJeansTogo's sister. She appealed and said it meant sex as in male or female rather than hippos actually doing it. So you should be fine. If you do end up getting banned, which I doubt it, the ban appeals here will save you.

    We don't do so. As long as the staff agree the username is inappropriate, they ban without warning.

    We have already discussed that and we agreed on not banning it.
    Don't ask me how and why I have no idea

    If names are at the extent where they are offensive (such as the N word) can be banned for innapropriate names.

    However, if your name is a foreign word that sounds offensive in English, you should notify a staff member about that (Atleast I think so)
