Why is everyone so infatuated(sp?) with the little asterisk before their name?

On babylon they have it so the RCs can make it so no matter what it add * to the begining of their names...

Is this some new hipster thing on Graal I missed?

I think it's so other people can't have the same name. At least that's what I recall.

The star thingy is only supposed to appear when you set your nick to the same as your account. Easy way to get rid of it:

Your account = cheese
"setnick cheese" = *cheese
"setnick *cheese" = cheese

God knows why they made it so but *shrugs*

Kaimestu is already controling our minds. and not useing his phococonetic blue glowing monkey powered mind control/influence device consturcted in russia, dismantaled, than reconstructed in your room twice thrown out, referbished, coffymaker installed, machine of doom controling all our thoughts.
He's useing his natural super power, powerd by occasional mind boost, from Birdbird_0's nexzt door kitten. Thus prooving that Birdbird_0's kitten is actually scaring himself, because he is the master mind after Kaimestu.

-Kiirar The astrick* denotes the account name and the nick are the same so when a PW does this it shows all nicks are also the account names when they are not . And yes that can pose problems.....:(

Only the cool people have * before their name. :rolleyes:

Actually I use it so no one else can have the same name as me unless they have a nick setter NPC.

Stefan, while you're at it, Frolic lets ANYONE set nick to *Stefan or *unixmad, or anything else without a guild tag.

I'm not saying that to get Babylon in trouble.

I was merely using it as an example.

And right in that post, after some careful searching, you can easily find the reason why this isn't allowed.

While your at it, take down... say... Valikorlia, Delteria... Hell, Stefan. Just take down all of the horrible playerworlds.



I remember a while back on Classic that everyone thought if you had * in front of your name, it meant you were a newbie hahaha.
