Thank God like it’s not like an MMORPG. Am I right? Can I get an AMEN?!
Like is indeed not like an MMORPG.
in my time, MMORPGs requiered players to choose a name;
-with a first letter in capiltal
-only letters, nothing else
-all name related to real life or existing fictions were banned
-the name should be pronouncable
AND WE LIKED IT
I mean you could just call her Sarah but with that name she would never be able to make any new friends. They would have to go through a whole list of Sarahs just to find her.
I do like how Steam handles usernames, meaning that you can change it almost as often as you want. Where other networks, like xbox live, demand a fee to change it.
This is because it is the unique id used to identify your account, while Steam has a profile number and account name which are associated with the profile name.
I think the anonymity of the internet brings out the worst in people. So I stopped using numbers and strange characters in my log-in & e-mail names. I felt the anonymity it gave me was bad for my short temper, as I could say or do anything without fear of showing my name in public.
Also it was always awkward when someone would ask for my e-mail and I had to say I didn’t have one because I’d feel silly giving out an anime character e-mail name.
It hasn’t helped my temper though, I’m still a bubbling cauldron of rage and hate percolating on the back burner. But it has helped me a little to watch and control what I say.
And I realized my real name is awesome if I swap my first and last names around.
Your real name is Jrince Ponathan? You parents must have hated you.
No it’s Jonathan Prince you boob.
What I really hate is the people who name their MMO characters after the CLASS they’re making them. I don’t know about you, but if my parents named me “BestMageEver” I think I’d become a barbarian just to spite them.
