REMEMBER DUPLICATION BEFORE PUBLICATION
It seems there is a special case when using the tag #ZMANU# to display the Manufacturer of the Watch .
Navigator ( Tissot )
perpetual ( redacted )
GMT M4ASTER ( for GMT MASTER who would guess )
OMEGA ( as in Alpha and Omega )
G11 (trigger by 911?)
And did you mention that word in description? Maybe they meanwhile corrected the bot list, but some time ago my face named khaki was pulled down, because of aggressive protection for the model name of Hamilton brand. They acknowledged my appeal in the end. The face was not much of fancy, from my early attempts, but it was really annoying experience.
I didn’t follow up the issue, as the workaround was simple. Don’t use Fossil as a preview watch. But as the ZMANU tag displays the manufacturer name across the watchface, the preview image generated would have alerted the Copyright police to seize the watch face.
In my opinion G11 or 911 should not be on the list because it is not a banned word -at least not yet. Such possibly banned words should be separated out from the list - if not, the list will not contain facts, but opinions and lose its value.
The Wiki is not working the way I expected but is working really well!
I have forgotten who Edited that . I think it was a Take Down but it would be good to get the response from Facer .
We have to allow this thing to Evolve Naturally . I have absolutely no Idea how it will or if it will Work . I have raised a ticket with Facer about How long the Primary Entry will be Editable .
The G11 was me. I’ll follow up with Facer Support, they did not respond to my ticket to this day…
Update: 24th Nov. 2023:
Facer did get back to me, they recovered my watch face, but did not comment on the reason it was taken down. The only difference I found to the newer version I had published, called TX-GX1, was that I had named it TX-G11. So it confirms that Marvin had something against “G11”.
Anything to do with Fallout, Pip-boy or Wastelanders gets removed now. Makes sense given that Fallout/Bethesda have just launched official watchfaces in Facer (which are super cool).I agree that the flagging system may not be perfect, but I’m quite impressed with the system Facer has in place. Important to protect copyright owners like some have said before
