Hello, I am new to swcombine. I am wanting to make my handle “Gand Agwo”, because of the Gand race description said this was normal. However, the system will not allow this name. It keeps saying that it won’t allow a name with “Sir” or “Lord”. Please advise. Thank you !
Why would it be a glitch? Many players have been around long enough that their handles violate rules created since. We don't require them to change their handles when a rule is created after they already had it approved; that wouldn't be fair to them.
He's a High Ambassador of the New Republic, I don't think they're that desperate for new people
this was an automated rejection sounds like, so obviously someone added it to the titles list at some point. arguably if it made it through someone could accept it, it's not stand-out egregious, but if it's an automated denial then there's not much to argue about
did you have a point to being here or did you just feel like bitching about something
Gand Xitwa is only a couple years old as a character, if even that, I do believe. There are six characters with Gand as a first or last name, so it certainly seems odd that it would be added as a title apparently within just the last couple years.
It was definitely added as a banned name more than a couple years ago. The name matching with the banned handles tool is a little shaky, though, so it's conceivable that a handle matching a banned field will eventually slip through, but at the end of the day it's still a forbidden handle. It's neither "odd" nor a "glitch" - it's a deliberate addition to prevent players from joining with a forbidden handle, among 49,768 other entries.

Good luck then. Hasn't been resolved in over a decade, but it's not exactly high priority. It still catches some 99% of blocked names, and nobody outside of this thread seems to care about the few it doesn't.
