Extreme language Filter in Description Text for Mod upload

Game Version:

Windows 10


I cannot write a single sentence when trying to add a description for a Mod without getting it blocked for upload, because what I assume is a language filter. It was extremely hard to get the description of this Mod in a state where the filter let it pass because the filter doesn’t tell me which word is the Problem. I had to do a binary search on the whole description and even then multiple words were problematic.

Reproduction Steps:

Go to my mod https://www.ageofempires.com/mods/details/4066 and copy the description to your mod update process and add the word “I” somewhere and it will be blocked. At least it was like that for me. This applies to a lot of vocabulary and even a lot of single letters.

This is a known issue and a fix is in the works. For future reference you can also publish your mod or update its description via the web site, which does not have this issue.
