I think there shouldn't be a way to change your character name. It would be too easy to misbehave until everyone in the game hates you and then change your name and noone would recognize you anymore.

name changing

thats a really good point, but people can still do that with different characters cant they? :? plus, if your concerned about people causing mischief, why not make a reporting system. someone reports someone, you look at the conversation, and if they did something bad, you could delete the character or something.

name changing

Post by zend » Tue Mar 13, 2007 10:36 pm

i like my name the way it is, but that deos seem like a feature the game should have(no offence), my friend and brother both want to change their names but cant without making a new charecter(they would make a new charecter, but they dont want to start over with their stats so high). and you could make a reporting system for reporting the people who are making mischief and such.
sincerly your contionce with friends :D

Currently to change your name, we have to stop the server. Anyway, maybe in the future, on a new server, there could be some admin commands to do that.

I totally agree with Crush. You shouldn't be able to change your name.

Then why pick a name like that? I think this is a very good example why we shouldn't allow name changes. You could change it into the name of a different website now and then. The name of you character should be well thought about and kept with that character.

I also think name changes shouldn't be allowed. What we can change, is to make sure to warn people about this when they choose their name.

Though of course administrators should be able to do it.
