I wrote this post because I am fed up with issues with ModNation Racers that UFG clearly didn't see. And I do hope that UFG sees this post because I am going to list 3 issues with MNR that UFG missed.
1. Stolen Creations
The "Sticker Set" Collection does help you move one sticker set from one creation to another but I noticed that you can put stickers from a remixable downloaded creation using the "Sticker Set" option and put it on a "New" Creation. Then it would look exactly like the original creation and you could publish it as your own and you would get all the credit rather than 50-50 between you and the original creator. UFG should have thought the "Sticker Set" collection option through. You should be able to remix a remixable creation but not be able to put a downloaded sticker set onto a blank creation. If MNR really was like that then this would have prevented thousands of stolen creations.
2. Innocent words censored
This is another big isssue that decreases the enjoyment of the game. A few certain words like "Until" and "Impossible" appear sensored in the chatbox. Don't believe me? Next time you enter the Modspot, say "Until" and "Impossible" and you will find that nearly the whole word is censored. But these aren't the only innocent words that get censored. And even a 7-year-old knows that these aren't swear words. Come on UFG!
3. Ramming in the Modspot
Although this isn't a HUGE issue, personally I think it still counts as a issue. Ramming each other in races is fine because races were intended to be competitive. But the Modspot is supposed to be the total opposite. It's supposed to be a place where you chill out an relax. But so far the Modspot is a place where bumper-karts are played. We should just be able to pass through each other in the Modspot. Although this would mean giving up "Physics says you can't pass through solid objects" I think in this case the re-assurance that you won't get rammed while you are talking to your friends is much more important.
And the list of things that need improving still continue to grow...

(You'll know why *CENSORED* is replaced and I'll hint you, it is the dog from Tom & Jerry)
I'm on the same boat as you MSTER232, I had to rename my mods just to get them published even though UFG finds Punk, Butthead and even *CENSORED* offensive and that name was used from a kids cartoon show and I always get annoyed at this. Why censor that name when it's used from a cartoon show. This is an outrage. All of this is making me want to leave the Modnation community. Unfriendly gimmicks, too much restrictions, heck, nobody found that word offensive at all doesn't mean SDS and UFG found it offensive and censor it. True it is a slang word but doesn't mean they can offensive and overall, Modnation Racers is a PEGI 7+ game.
They lost my support, I'm trading it in when I get the chance.
And here is 4.
When you go the wrong way especially in Time Trial mode, the game will reset you the right way forcing you to complete the lap which is disgraceful and there is no reset option. What's their problem. -_-

(old thread is old)
As far as i know MNR uses Sonys word filter, some innocent words in English can mean something else in a different language. Anyway its to do with Sony not UFG.
As for "When you go the wrong way especially in Time Trial mode, the game will reset you the right way forcing you to complete the lap which is disgraceful and there is no reset option. What's their problem."
What are you going backwards for? There is a reset option - press select at anytime during the race.
