Quanta, you are obviously not understanding the way the /tell system could easily work while having surnames be optional. I'm not going to explain it to you because, like everything else I've said, I have no ******* clue what I'm talking about.
None of you have any reason as to why surnames SHOULDN'T be optional. You all spew the same bullsh*t answer that people should just accept it and move on. If you can all ***** about your lack of male miqo'te and tele-taxi's (no offense) why is it an invalid argument to say surnames should be OPTIONAL? If you don't care, then just shut up and walk away from the argument instead of making yourself look utterly incompetent. Stop trying to make things more difficult for people who are asking for something very simple. I think surnames are stupid in an MMORPG. I'm not even required to have one irl if I don't want one so why the **** should it be forced upon me just because a bunch of idiots "don't see why it shouldn't be forced upon me?" Unless one of you can come up with a real reason why surnames shouldn't be optional, then stop wasting your breath.
And you've given us no reason why they SHOULD be optional other than the desire to be able to use only one name, which is the terrible system that most MMORPGs have stuck with for over a decade. You can't explain how /tells and other **** should work in a system where first or last are optional because you have no ******* clue how
they should work, or you would have made an attempt to explain it instead of writing it off as some "you wouldn't understand" *********
On that note, I'm going to take that approach. First and last are in and mandatory. I'd explain why that's the case at the database level, but you wouldn't understand. Because you haven't understood so far.
Apparently they weren't capable of navigating a simple menu system to turn these notifications off. It was possible.
Sure...much, MUCH later. It should never have been in the system to begin with is what I'm getting at.
