Does anyone know where I could find details on the vendor naming policy? It seems that names with "GM" in them give an error something like, "This name is disallowed." Why would that be? (Such as, "GM Potion Kegs" was disallowed).

I think if you put GM in something, people think it might be in reference towards a Game Master, not Grand Master in a skill. There were a few crafters posing as EA staff, trying to sell their wares at one point.

One example was the tailor named "The Dev Team" on atlantic, who tried to pose as an actual member of the dev team to sell his stuff. Funny thing was, his stuff was really good, and I would've bought from him just based on that alone. He eventually got banned. Anyway, that's my only assumption. I would just put "Kegs" in your description. People will know what you mean.
