As I was looking around in some game forums, I noticed how names can ruin a game. Might I suggest we have a name verifier so people can't be running around with names like "uberpwnzer", "ikillu" and other names the likes of those. I don't know if its just me but when you see someone running around with a stupid name, it just ruins the feeling of whatever your playing. Oh and maybe add in that all names are capitalized. Just my feelings though.

You should definately be able to report/have some verifier for lame names. Such lame names will ruin the whole RPG spirit in my opinion.

I think names should be how they are in english. First letter is capitalized, the rest are lowercased. I do agree some names can be so stupid, you just want that person to die and never log on again Twisted Evil but seeing as that probably wont happen, maybe some rules on names are needed.

Yes, names will be verified in Daria. It will work such as this:

- You create your character
- When you join the game, you will have an "not verified" tag on your name (or some other effect, such as a half-transparent name)
- Admins and moderators will be able to list all names that haven't been verified, and then either accept or reject the name (in which case the Admin himself or herself will choose a new name)

Are we allowed to put apostrophes in names?
For example, "Khaile'anar".

Plenty of character names in RPGs and stories have apostrophes and I'm wondering if it's going to be illegal to use them in Daria.

Having RP-ish names is only good if people actually do RP. Wink IMO it doesn't matter much if you hear "j0o suckz0rz i pwnz0rz j00" from a character named "ikillu" or from "Khaile'anar". In the first case at least you know what to expect;) So, unless the names are really obscene or offensive, they should be allowed.

... or, you could just leave them unverified and unable to play the game, so you don't ever have to deal with "j0o suckz0rz i pwnz0rz j00."

Yes, apostrophes and various non-English will be allowed. In other words, "Björn" is a legal name. That's why we need to verify names "by hand", because it's difficult for a automatic parser to detect illegal names such as "Cünt" etc.

Also, about the RPG:ish names discussion: Characters in Daria will have sort-of "real" names. In other words, you will not give your character a nick, but a first and family name instead.

Hmm... Actually we haven't decided yet Smile The default way will be that you must type the whole name when you /tell somebody, but often that will not be possible or convenient. Either you will have to 1) set a nickname for your character in addition to the character's real name, or 2) set your own "shortcut names" for friends that you want to contact often.
