<p>I been looking at names for players Characters on EQ2 players website.  I have noticed some good names that are used on most of the servers are taken up by players that no longer play or who have not played their character for well over 12 months and more.</p><p>Here are some of the many names I seached, (Susan and Chris).  Susan and Chris for Character names are taken up on every server.  But looking though each one I noticed alot of them have not been played since 2004/05. here are 3 explames..........</p><p>1. Chris on Befallen was created Jan 11, 2005 but was last played May 25, 2005.</p><p>2. Chris on Blackburrow was created Jan 1, 2005 but was last played Jan 29, 2005 and is only level 16.</p><p>3. Susan on Mistmoore was created Oct 4, 2005 but was last played Oct 6, 2005 and only level 8.</p><p>I chose these 2 names just to show what I mean.  It is time to wipe names that are no longer on ACTIVE accounts after say 18 months or less.  Some still may have active accounts but not played their toon for long time, but I bet most have left and will never return.</p>

People have there account not active for many reason. Thouse people could be in the army and have been serving over sea unable to play eq2. The person could of been in a bad accident and has spent a year in the hospital. Another person might be in debt and can't affoted eq2, but wants to come back when there able to... How do you tell someone who could not play for a long period of time that there name that they've had was given to someone else casue of there long time away. That wouldn't be fair.

SOE has rarely if ever deleted toons from any stagnant accounts. My EQ1 account hasn't been played in 3 years,  but I logged in about a month ago and all of my toons were there...If i wanted to go back tomorrow I could..

I do see where he's coming from, it's annoying to want a name and not be able to get it for whatever reason. If it's a valid reason. so be it - but if not - it's frustrating.

Its financially bad for SoE to delete accounts/names. I bought and played the game at launch for about a year and 2-3 months. I left then went to WoW. I finally came back to eq2 from wow. I would not have come back to eq2 these last 10 months if they had deleted my account/names. I was gone for about 14 months. Even if SoE only changed the names of my characters then I wouldnt have come back. People that are still playing actually saw me get back online after a long absence. Name recognition is big here. People notice names that are origanal. I have chracters that are on friends list. It would screw up friends lists of everyone if SoE delete names/accounts. Cant you really think of something and be creative or are you just to lazy to think put forth effort?

<p>I agree that after 12 months your account should be deleted and those names thrown back in the mix. However, shorter periods of time should be forgiven. I have taken 6 months off for Hurricane Katrina relief. After seeing all that and helping those people I could think of nothing better than a boost of morale with my old friends from eq2. So if they had canceled my account I more than likely would not have started another one due to all the time invested. But after 1 year I would totally expect to come back and find my account reset.</p><p>Another thing that needs to be reset is server guild names. There should be no delay on these in the sense that it should be an automatic reset. A buddy of mine worked hard to form and lead one of the best raid guilds on the Mistmoore server. While he was gone his guild disbanded. I tried to get the name on an alt to ensure no newb guild was formed with the same name. No luck! "Unable to use guild name" it said. This is ridiculous since name has not been used in 3 months or so and it has no members at all. Also some fantastic names have been used and most of those players have left eq2. Please reset guild names on servers!</p>

If they keep paying for the account, it doesn't matter that they never log in, they are active and not part of this discussion IMHO.

Lets ponder this one.... Player "A" started the game and played a bit, has not paid, played for whatever reason for a long amount of time.  There's always the chance that they may come back, be pleasantly surprised and stay in the game. Player "B" is starting the game, can't get the name that Player "A" has reserved so has no desire to stay because of it. If I was hedging my bets, I would put my money on Player "A". Also, if they simply went by last played like some people stated, what about All Access players that have EQ-1 Accounts that have remained active since Beta with level 70 Toons on them that left to play EQ2 as I did? Should they loose the names they had for the past 7 years because Johnny has to have that name to make the game worthwhile? If your starting out the game with the attitude that if I can't have the name I want, who wants to play, maybe a solo game is more to your liking.

As far as I'm concerned, as long as you are paying for the account (or station access), the name is yours, no matter how seldom you log in.  But, if you let your billing lapse, SOE has the right to remove anything including all the characters, or the names, or whatever.  It doesn't seem unreasonable to me to free up names after 6 months of nonpayment.

You have to forgive me in that I know I will be flamed for my response to this.  How would someone know that a name was being used by an inactive account? They would have to research that. I mean honestly, it worries me that it's not enough for someone to have a name rejected because it's in use, they really have to make sure that it's an active account? Yes I realize that to some a name means everything I guess.  Perhaps, in that context one could relate that it may mean something to the current owner, active or inactive. Maybe their going through a rough time in real life and why should we add to that? How would you treat it if it was an active account?  Would you be so upset that you would not play; or would you work around it?

<p>I go back and forth with this and today's mood is AGAINST it.</p><p>It's a fantasy game.  Names like Susan and Chris are not amongst my top fantasy names.  I imagine more than a few of the 'more desirable' names don't fall into the fantasy theme either.  A fantasy name can be about anything that has relative phonetics.  That's why nobody is complaining about the farmers taking up the good names.  They just don't sound out right.  </p><p>So today, I'm thinking that if you are ahead of the pack and reserved your name,  you paid Sony for the priviledge.  Whether it was for the original box and a free month or a solid year after release on Station Access.  Some amount of money has been paid to SoE and in return they keep your account data around just in case you feel like picking the game back up.</p><p>I can't say for certain that this is the general feeling around the office at SoE but I overheard a player asking an SoE person if they could have their name reserved on a server.  Basically, the player was told,"Sure we will disregard all of our other customers so you can have your name."  So is the real question, would SoE disregard past customers so as new or potential ones can have more 'desirable' names played?  </p><p>Well that's the toss off maybe.  I know, as a player, I don't want to have my names taken from me because I feel I have paid my dues.  If I went to play VG for two years, I'd still like to come back to Omni on Najena and not Omnix on Najena where the new Omni played to 25 and then quit.  Freeing up a name from guy A so guy B can play it doesn't mean guy B will progress the character or play them any more than guy A.  So what, a constant circulation of names?   I vote for static names and a little more creativity.</p>

I can see the other side of it too, the idea that if people were more creative it wouldn't be such an issue.

I think it should stay the way SOE does it now. As, it is one of the really good features that this company does have. That no matter how long your away, your always welcomes back, without loosing all your hard work that you may have done a year ago. Once you get that desire to come back, You want to go back to your beloved character and be sure that they are still there. So, I think its great that the names stay there. No complaints from me.

Soozan Susaan Suzon Suezan Chrys Chryss Kris Kriss Krihss And other spellings -- I'm too lazy to continue, my point is made. You're just gonna have to get creative dood ;p Then put in your bio a short bit saying something to the effect that "My name is pronounced Susan/Chris"....." but my birth was attended by a dyslexic gnome doctor and was recorded incorrectly", or "but my parents were fae hippies", or maybe even, "but considering I'm a froglok I'm just glad my name isn't spelled Grrooooaaak" ..... and then you just live with it <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> The fact is, SOE isn't going to do what you suggest. The small cost it takes to store the info on inactive accounts is more than covered by the incentive it gives old players to come back.  It's just good business sense,  because they would lose more money from old players not wanting to come back, than they lose from the few who might not play because they can't get that one name.  Chances are they don't want those players anyway.  In fact, the people who tend to complain about the name thing, have active accounts, so SOE is losing no money there--I doubt folks are staying away in droves because of this issue. If you want to put your money where your mouth is, leave, if enough people split over this issue maybe you can come back to that perfect name, in the meantime, the old players who keep coming back to give SOE just a little more money ARE putting their money where their mouth is, and SOE notices.

Yeah thank god SOE never deletes characters.  The fact that I couldn't be "Erebus" on the Unrest server is not as important as being able to pick up my original EQ characters from like 4 years ago.  That's important for me, as a player, who had life intrude for a while, and it's important for SOE, for customer retention. I can understand your frustration at not finding the exact name you want, but with a little creativity you can turn it into a non-issue.

What is so difficult about having to come up with a unique name?  rofl

<p>If you want Susan or Chris then just make the [Removed for Content] name xChrisx or xSusanx.  or some weird spelling variation like someone posted above. If I created a character but had to leave the game for a long time for whatever reason I'd be pretty [Removed for Content] to come back and my name not be the same. Names actually mean something for people who make a unique name for roleplaying purposes. You're not any more special or important than the person who beat you to getting the name first.</p>

<p>There's a strange mindset or something psychological about names and toons.   I have played a lot of games and try to mix up the names.  I can pick anything and at first I'm thinking,"This name sucks I should do a new one" but I don't and play the character a little.  The name kinda sticks on you and the more powerful you get the character the more you are liking the name.  In the end, you usually really like the name and have an affinity to it.  That's what I've noticed and I've used some really lame names.  </p><p>I got Omni from a buddy of mine on Zek(with his permission).  My EQ name was Jailok.  I use Jai as an alias some times and he was a caster so lok.   Should of been Jailock but that looked like Jail lock and seemed too lewt. Still it looks like Jail ok which seems lewt and people called me Jail ok.  Not my favorite name but it really didn't matter in the end because I was bad [Removed for Content] enchanter.  I am also glad I got out of my stage of starting all my names with Jai though.  </p>

If I start a new game and cant get the name I want, I choose a different one, only a complete [Removed for Content] would not play a game because they cant have their 1st choice of name.</p><p>The fact is that SoE have never deleted chars nor reallocated names. I have an inactive EQ1 accouint which I havent used since EQ2 went live, my chars are ALL still there with names intact. Face it, its not gonna happen bacause SoE dont was to lose resubscribers to new people who have a tamtrum when they cant get thier desired name.</p><p>Also, if you have an original name, this problem wont happen, you should only have a name problem if you want to rip off an already famous name. And then my advice would be to stop stealing other peoples work and come up with your own - and failing that theres the random name generator. </p>
