Hi, everyone. Reddit's [https://www.reddit.com/r/vexillology/ Vexillology forum] is a source of a huge number of flag redesigns. Every so often I search through to find new ones that aren't here yet. Because it's Reddit, there are a fair number of designers with some very, well, immature user names. I see this wiki as a very useful resource for people interested in alternatives to the state flags, and I don't know if displaying a file called "Arizona flag by turtlefucker472" would detract from that purpose. Are we comfortable with vulgar usernames? Should we censor such names with dashes? I just wanted to ask before I uploaded some of Mr. 472's flags and received a complaint.

:"turtlef-cker" or other censored versions would only imply that the displayed variation is the actual username, so I'd lean towards just using the actual name. Maybe PM Turtlefucker at Reddit for their input? [[User:HansLN|Hans]] ([[User talk:HansLN|talk]]) 18:00, August 5, 2016 (UTC)

::The question is more about our standards on this wiki. If our editors had a problem with rude sounding user names, I would want to discuss it before posting. [[User:Benkarnell|Benkarnell]] ([[User talk:Benkarnell|talk]]) 17:28, August 6, 2016 (UTC)

:::There is no precedent on this wiki, AFAICT, nor a relevant Wikia-wide policy. I don't know about other editors, but as I said I'm personally against censoring in such cases. If you're hesitant, the reason I suggested contacting the user was to ask if (s)he has some kind of different nickname to use, and/or would be okay with shortening the name (e.g. "Turtle472") or other replacements.
