Did I just get banned on FH3 for nothing?

Hey guys. Here’s my situation. It started when I was working on my liscence plate and I ended up putting “IMFASTER” on it. When I tried to apply the changes a message popped up saying that the liscence plate would not be seen by other online players so I guess that it must have been derogative or something so I changed it to 2FAST4U. the next thing I know. I wasn’t able to visit the auction house or join any multiplayer sessions on my XBox One console. After that I was confused so I decided that maybe There was something in the liscence plate that the server’s decided was derogative again or something? So I went back to change my Liscence plate to the HORIZON default. But still couldn’t access online or Auction House. I checked my network connection and everything was fine with that. I hard reset my console but still nothing. I reset my router and did everything I was instructed to do with the help of Xbox live support. But still can’t access the online features in game. I was able to get online with my other games but not on any of the Forza titles. Have I been banned because of the harmless Liscence plate of “IMFASTER?” And how would that be considered derogative? I don’t know what else to think. I haven’t received any messages from turn ten yet saying that I have been banned. Everything was fine until I changed my liscence plate. Any suggestions?

It could just be the servers playing up.

Try again tomorrow.

If you don’t get either a notification that you’re banned or clarification from a moderator, then it’s likely a connectivity issue. I was disconnected in mid-play twice this morning, though I was able to get back on after a few minutes.

I could be wrong, but I didn’t think you were allowed to put taunting or your car (which those number plates are).

I have had 2FAST4U since the game came out

And it’s a lie! :wink:


I just changed my plate to ‘IMFASTER’ and went online with it. No problem at all.

Whatever instantly determines words that can’t be used is a script not a human. So there would need to be something in the plate that could be defined before-the-fact. Like curse words and pretty much only that. The only thing l can get out of that is the letters MF but it would be quite far fetched to just ban those two letters appearing in succession.

lt’s just a connection issue.

Hmmmmmm…this is oddly helpful about a post I made a while back about not being able to share a photo. I made a photo of a rocket bunny s13 by the gas pump and had it named rocketbs13 but when i tried sharing it I was told that I tried to share inappropriate content. So i changed the name to 1 and tried sharing it but same thing, I even tried waiting a few weeks later but still the same thing. I wonder if the paint was what it considered inappropriate because it had 6666 customs written on the fender, however I made the design and was able to share the design without problems so who knows. I had to delete photo anyways so I’ll retry it again eventually.

Yeah, apparently four 6’s are as bad as three. I just tested it and got the same dialogue box.

Again. I’ll just be mindful of what pictures I take. If I need to take a picture that may be questionable, like a skull and crossbones it gave me the same box for, I’ll just screenshot and send it to the OneDrive, then share it from there.

If you people are seeing these things in-game, are you reporting them? That’s why there is a button where each of us can make sure these unacceptable items are brought to the attention of Turn 10 for their actions. When you Report something, a copy of the item is sent to Turn 10.

As for text entries, such as naming files, etc., that is - as it has always been - the Xbox Live language filter. It is not under Turn 10’s control at all, but mandatory in every game where user created items can be posted.


Yes, I do report them. I don’t want to see them and I’m sure others don’t either.

Still doesn’t really explain why basic things are considered inappropriate. Like a skull and crossbones when they’re tons of them uploaded. Or, four 6’s for that matter but it’s whatever. No system is without its flaws.

I struggle to believe this game has image recognition for offensive words. What a waste of resources to implement something so difficult.

Probably another connection issue.

I had the same thought but I’ve tested several things and got the same dialog box each time. If it is the case, I agree with you. Just let the players report them and dedicate those resources elsewhere.

I have also only tested this with the preset letterings so I don’t know if original ones would yield the same result.
