Thank God like it’s not like an MMORPG. Am I right? Can I get an AMEN?!

    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

    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.

    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.
