    Man right now this thread has a rather generic title with an even more generic first post, you havent described what your talking about or posting for in the slightest?
    what exactly are you even talking about?
    How are they broken?
    In what way?
    Have you any examples?

    To give you an example, this is like me posting a thread called "Feet glitched" and my first post saying "the feet my toon wears are glitched and dont fit". Im not slagging you btw, im merely pointing out the major flaw in this thread so you can rectify it and so maybe someone here can help.

    If you're saying that the names are rediculous then I hate to tell ya, that's just what the game thinks is normal. Seen a girl running around with the name Frost Snatch. Have a member with the name TheCattyin TheHatty.

    Mepps could you inform us of what exactly the thread is about? What kind of restriction is broken? Is it the character limit or something?

    I think its people can make random names that should other wise be restricted.

    Mepps would you fix the specific name restrictions but allow us to create names with punctuation like they can on PC?

    Didn't wanna get specific for a reason, don't want it to get out of control. No character restrictions such as /(&&!?;)@"$!;>£*{]_~ that sorta thing

    Is this gonna affect all new names? I think symbols should be fine as long as they don't try to get away with cursing or anything offensive.

    I agree with the above. I believe EU can have symbols in their names. Plus it would allow people to create good sounding names with the addition of a symbol considering almost all the original names are taken by people who haven't played in years.

    Thats been going on for a long long time though. Im pretty sure I saw names like that when i started playing over 3yrs ago. But what choice do ppl have when theres no duplicate names allowed and theres no system in place with regards to inactive toons?

    The best solution i saw for this was brought up in a different thread, that if a toon is inactive for over 6 months then its name should automatically change to a generic one (the example she gave was like NewToon105, NewToon106 etc etc). You'd be surprised how long it takes for some ppl tk just START this game because they spend so long trying to Name their toon due to most names being taken.

    And lets face it, if you log onto your toon 7+ months apart, then your only using that toon as a Bank toon, so why would it matter if it lost its name? Names like Sůpermān or B@tman etc etc? Ye they should be fixed, but if you wanted something original like say "Molten Overdrive" but thats taken in 11 different ways already by ppl who dont even use 10 of those 11 toons, its either the solution above or just let them have Møltěn Øverdrivě.

    So because a leaguemate of mine got excited and found out he can make a name (we are on USPS and previously you were unable to use special characters) using an exclamation point, he unknowingly used this bug lol

    I kind of wanna try this, in efforts to troll my leaguemates. :)
