EclipsedAngel has a spectacular aura about
Community Names

Get rid of them.
They're not really account names, they're just labels.
We still have to refer to their Graal numbers to maintain the accounts.
It's rather ridiculous.

What is the point, seriously?
It's hard to keep track of people by referring to them by their graal numbers.
How are we supposed to remember those?

Get rid of community names, and have the accounts that were created after community names were installed, to replace their graal numbers with their community names.

I like when someones community name is a different Graal### account than their real Graal### account.

For example, their community name is Graal711352, but their account is Graal684252.

Now THAT is hilarious to me. Especially one day when this Graal## was trying to get a job on a server, and the staff kept saying that it wasen't his account. It was a huge mess.

Community names are garbage. Most people like to be known as there actual account name, not some Graal######.

What about allowing a player to pick an account name when they upgrade? If they were implemented to get rid of hundreds of unused trials, then give them an account name when they upgrade and let Graal###### be temporary.

OR just script it so that unused trials self destruct after 30 days of non use. The issue of all the good names being taken would disappear. This would also eliminate the need for support to remove a community name for someone that decided they wanted to change their identity by changing their community name. Plus it would get rid of the Graal##### confusion once and for all.

I keep hearing people say all "the good names" were taken. What defines an account name as good? Does anyone else want to be known as papajchris or Bell? I don't understand whats a good name. Sure many new people like acct names such as "xXSilent_SNIPERxX123" but theres millions of other words and ways to do that, so i don't see how there is a lack of account name emergency

I agree, but I think it should be a little longer than 30 days. At least 2 months. Giving people leeway in case something happens like hospital stays, loss of internet, personal issues, moving, or whatever, ya never know...

I want *pojo, but it's been taken by an account that hasn't so much as logged on in years.

I'm pretty sure when I made this account, I had to tack numbers on it because "Darlene" was taken. I wish I could remove the numbers. I have never seen an account named "Darlene", ever...
