    Modded Clan Tags - Outdated, Unofficial but maybe relevant Information

      (from another thread): All this info is from last November when it was first going on, so it may not be valid for the current way of doing it. If you want to do it, go for it, but if it is deemed bannable, don't come back to the forums crying.


      Took some time, but I found it through another (old) website that reported on the Bowling tweets from last November:


      http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/threads/warning-to-all-those-who-mod-clan-tag.61 2416/


      Bowlings tweet asking people to report offenders (link on said page)


      Any attempt to cheat, hack, or glitch in #MW3 will not be tolerated. 1600+ bans issued. Updates in works. Please cont. to report offenders.


      From AV:

      Unfortunately the original link is no llonger there, but this was an Activision answer:


      Question: Can I be banned for using special characters in my clan tag?

      Answer: Using any kind of hack or exploit to put characters or graphics into your clan tag can result in a suspension or full ban. You may only use the default set of characters included in the user interface.

      Take it for what you will. An official response is still needed, but imo... I would not do it.
