Display Name Filter Issue

Page URL: https://www.roblox.com/my/account#!/info
Impact: Low
Frequency: Constantly

Reproduction Steps:

  • Go to account settings
  • Click on change display name, type in creditsmix, and then CreditsMix.

Expected Behavior:
My username is on the display name blacklist. When a Roblox user attempts to type in CreditsMix as their display name, it should return an error.

Actual Behavior:
When typing in the exact spelling of my username, it allows any Roblox user to choose that as their display name even though I’m on the blacklist.

API I used: https://users.roblox.com/v1/display-names/validate?displayName=creditsmix&birthdate=01%2F01%2F2000




Are you sure your username is on the blacklist? The display name API doesn’t return an error for me when checking the validation of “creditsmix” and “CreditsMix.”

I used a different display name API to check the validation. It’s interesting that there are two different results. This might be another issue relating to the display name filter. It could be that I’m not on the list or the word isn’t allowed on a different filter. Thanks for pointing that out!

The birthdate above is only an example and does not actually represent any personally identifiable information related to me.


You need to replace the user Id in the URL with the user Id that you’re currently logged in with
