    Is this KD theme valid or qualifies for a ban?

    We are thinking about using postal codes as our KD theme next age.

    For example:
    8012701
    6681028
    etc..

    Is using such a theme considered "ban" worthy? I am unsure because they are obviously quite distinct, but at the same time a pain to read.

    In same kd

    I suggested this. But I thought of putting letters between postal codes or 5 random numbers, like this. G66666k, d44444p.... Those are examples.

    Rules:

    Names may not contain gibberish (for example, “asdqwe”, “lkjlkjlkj”, “542341224” etc)
    Names may not be designed to be confusingly similar to other names in the game. For example, it is forbidden for the provinces of a kingdom to select names that are deliberately difficult to distinguish from each other.

    Ban worthy:

    Depends. I've seen a KD getting mass-deletions. Others have just gotten their names changed or a short freeze of their accounts.

    Postal codes are structured differently in many different parts of the world, are you sure you want a theme that would only make sense to certain parts of the planet? For instance, UK has letters in their codes, US has only five digit codes, Japan has 7 digit codes with a dash... but on that note, if you're going with it, maybe start the province names with letters to individualize them, maybe by city or country.

    Tokyo 522-0323
    London AL2-1FN
    New York 10460

    You'd still get your theme but much less risky.

    Just pointing out that you can run any theme you want as long as have a clear way of clearly distinguishing between provs. You can do something like

    1 blah blah blah
    2 blahblah blah
    3 blahb1ahblah

    And so on

    If you are too lazy to find a theme, just get something slightly confusing that does not warrant a ban. Then bishop will make a theme for ya ^^

    I think the only way you get away with this is if you have the numbers preceding the gibberish. I know we have warred kds who tried the cute name crap (while it worked a couple times via failed attacks) and we reported them. By end of the war they all had named changed.

    I want a clear way of clearly distinguishing if you are just trolling.

    Bishop has perfect themes. If you like My Little Pony or Taylor Swift, which you of course do.

    Warhammer40k theme was my personal favourite. I am also known to rename people Mary and Susan though as well.
