My biggest issue with the Graalxxxxxx accounts, mixed with the Commuinty Names is the fact that when someone (EG: Litter [Andrew] or Yocas [Another Graal staff on Era]) has an RC, it's a pain in the arse when they prefer to use /opencomments, directly, and it opens the comments of their Graal account, and if you want to add work for them, you have to go into the Server Options to figure out which one is which, and who is who, etc.

People who choose their community name can't choose a name already taken by another account or community name, which works exactly the same as accounts. Sure, after playing for a short while, they can choose a name, but it really shouldn't matter when they choose the "Name" they want, whether it be an account name they get stuck with before playing, or if they choose it later. It lacks uniqueness, for those who decide not to choose a community name, so when I see "Graalxxxxxx did something", I have to think about "Well, who the heck is THAT???", but that's just me, since the day I started Graal, I've generally used "Show Account instead of nick on playerlist", so everyone looks the same

Apparently not. That's what this game lacks -- player input before this kind of stuff, motive to do something, and good ideas.

Graal###### accounts are horrid. To enforce this statement, someone on a playerworld tried to add me to staff list to help check up on something, and they couldn't figure out if I was Programmer or Graal702360. It gets highly annoying whenever account operations in RC need to be done. (i.e open attributes, edit rights/comments/access)

Motivation. Need I say more? Ever since Graal v5, I've seen very few beneficial updates to the Graal client and satellite programs. Hell, Graal Editor hasn't been updated in years! Also, what happened to Graal 3D? Was it ditched or something? Where is the motivation to update!

Good ideas -- This speaks for itself. Stefan and unixmad have good potential, but they lack good ideas. This thread is a prime example. The Graal###### accounts have a few advantages, but the disadvantages outweigh them. Playerlist doesn't show community names, it shows the Graal###### names. How are we supposed to know who's who? We're not going to remember accounts like Graal702360, we're going to remember accounts like Programmer and whatnot.

I highly suggest re-evaluating your ideas.

Well it has a good side too.
If a kid once named was SSSJ9_Goku-Phil he can now choose a new, less ridiculous, more mature name.

Which can't be done, community names are chosen once.

If you mean people with current accounts names, then you are mistake, everyone who already had account's community name is automatically chosen to be identical to their Account Name.

If you mean, new subscribers, then Yes, but as Crow said:

like everyone else has been saying.. I would doubt 2 people could have the same community name, so this system is just useless.

I thought they already purged (lack of a better word?) old accounts that were not used. This Frankie account was registered a long time ago. I recently took it about 1 - 2 years ago.
