    So the server chat is currently ignoring all nicknames and displaying everyone's account name.

    Nice security.

    Saw that and tried changing my name using the #rename <old name> <new name> command. It errors out and doesn't work. Could have something to do with the general login maintenance that's going on right now.

    That seems like a rather large oops....will dbg now ban themselves for sharing info?

    OMG this can't be a thing. As a MMO middleware developer I cannot stress enough just had awful this is.

    Please update the forum when this is fixed. I'm not logging in until so...

    Seems that it got fixed right before the servers came online. Chat was frozen for me, but after logging out and back in my pseudo-name had been restored. Servers got unlocked just a moment after that.

    There are other MMO's which do this benefit is that azzwipes cannot hop on their other character to shows which account the name is under.

    The benefit is FAR outweighed by the fact that if some clown figures out your password, gets your account name from something like this, the bad actor can log you in, move you to FV and chop-block-sells your characters things... your EQ career is over. #DBG-WeNeed2FANow

    How do you change the name showing on the Server (down) Chat window? It shows the name I had a long, long time ago...and my husband's shows a name it should not (see above comments). Any help is appreciated!

    If that is what is showing in the chat window I suggest staying out of chat.
