That makes me wonder how many people are going to try to spoof "GM" as a first name to scam people.


Probably quite a Few, im sure SE will gave that blocked as a first name. If not.. as long as peopel remember the rules, Main one being GM's Will never ask for User name and passwords. should be okay.. Hmm this might be a good thing to put into the feedback forum, to block GM [GM] {GM} or any variation of.
Probably need to add things like Admin, Gamemaster, etc as well. What would be epic is if someone named their character "Square Enix".

I like the idea, at least it gives a wider variety of names, hopefully will avoid the invasion by names having numbers and all kind of things because there are no names available.

Can't use "GM" as a 1st name since there's a 3 letter minimum. but aim guessing GMs will look special enough for it to be obvious, purple names, or talking chocobos or glittery auras or something....

I'm torn between being original and stealing Bradford. I bet classic FF names will be as common as Smith in here!

When I first heard about it I wasn't feeling it, but now I'm kinda excited about it. It gives me a chance to try out my new name formula: shade of color + musical term. Now I have to decide between Carmine Cavatina and Midnight Rhapsody. Heck I may even just go with my old chocobo's name: Stardust Rose. Hmmm, this is gonna be harder than I thought...

Oddly enough, that's quite similar to my dog's full name: Crimson Phoenix Serenade.

Ithink it will be forced to "Gm Name" because of the forced capitolization.

Edit: Ah, 3 letters. So "Gmm Name". Not bad. :/

Yeah, but you know people will try to do it.

"Hi, you need to confirm your WoW login details! go to battle-cataclysm-beta-login-validate-net.com to log in or you will be banned!"

Yeah, okay.

Oooh, nice. That is a lovely idea.

So for whatever reason, people are not choosing to post their name ideas. I can give some good guesses here - basically want to make sure you get it right? So some ****** doesn't make your name on a mule out of spite?

Well, anyway. I've had a real hard time coming up with a Surname for "Smashington". It's long enough already! But I just came up with a new name for my Champions Online character.

"Tankenstein". Heck ya! So now I'm seriously considering:

"Smashington Tankenstein".

Going to just fill the screen with awesomeness.

If SE was really creative they could spoof urban poster art with "And Remember! Your GMs will never ask for your username and password! GMs IMPROVING OUR WORLD."
