Hi there


I am another person who has hit the roadblock of their domain not being allowed to be registered as the Return URL. In my case, its because I have the word "game" in it. I can understand stuff like "sex" or "viagra", but "game"

To use Windows Live ID I now need to buy a new domain name. Is there a list of banned words available so I can make sure my new domain does not include one


All the best,

EA

Hi Ed,

I've seen this question before on these forums, but I can't answer it for you, no official answer has been given by a team member yet, maybe they will answer this question one of these days.

Hi Ed,

I have had contact with Angus Logan regarding this issue, he said that Microsoft can't publish the list with banned words (which is obvious), but acknowledges the usability issues that arise from them. For now, the best solution is posting a topic in this forum or e-mailing him directly.

They are working on it though.

Hope this helps,

Alex

Based on all the feedback in this forum, we are currently reviewing the list of banned words and the problems people are having with working out what the issue is with any particular URL. Keep watching this space for updates.

Thanks for the update Jorgen.

I suppose that a compromise for the moment would be to have the return URL to another domain, then redirect with the credentials to the "real" domain.

I have implemented the single sign on systems from Facebook and Yahoo, and neither have this issue with the same domain.

All the best,
