If you don't like my toon, I can reroll another.

Lets run an instance.

I heard WoW invented the whole fantasy genre.

I think WoW stole "Toon" from UO who ganked it from Tiny Toons who then took it from Who Framed Roger Rabbit's Toon Town who nabbed it from Looney Toons! Now FFXIV took it... oh the HUMANITY!

You are playing a game that looks like a cartoon and your character looks like a toon. Hello kettle?

But seriously people replied to this with constructive ideas about name conventions? Put your geek away and walk away from the computer. Next go outside.

I dont like the word toon either, and roll my eyes every time I read it wondering what in the world people are thinking calling their character a toon. Seriously, it sounds like you're playing Mickey's Clubhouse '94 or some animated-aimed-at-10-year-olds-game.

I think you and the OP need to get outside and be reintroduced to society. You're taking game terminology way too seriously.

I like the word toon, it has less letters than the word character, wich in FF XIV chat system, is huge issue when typing sentences.

seriously, i bet if people had more than 85 characters within which to express themselves ingame they would be more inclined to type 'character' instead of 'toon'.

That "T"-word does sound horrible for this game. I'm lucky I never had to hear that word used in XI...ever.

so stop calling them toons.
this is a public service announcement. thank you for reading.

No one is calling their chars in WoW toons. It's definatly coming from somewhere else. I only ever played WoW, RO, EVE and now FFXIV and have never heard toon before reading around in FFXIV forums. So maybe it's coming from FFXI? So stop trolling around.

Thank you.

It is actually used very extensively in wow, perhaps your just not social? But ya Toon did not come from wow just like wow wasnt the first mmo just like... I just realized I am still typing in this pointless thread and keeping it alive .... meh

It's my toon, I'll call it whatever the **** I want.

This has been a public service announcement broadcast between your cheeks, so you can hear it better.

I hate the term "toon" as much as the next person (I won't even call my WoW character a "toon".) but making a thread about it is utterly and completely pointless. People are going to do it no matter what so you can either:

A.) Deal with it and move on.
B.) Bawl and rant about it then quit.

You lose either way so why not make it easier on yourself and just blacklist someone if it bothers you that much.


What he said. Dude, grow up already.

I think the fact I'm using "Samus" in my username is what sparked this... Funny since it's been years since anyone actually commented.

--Random Not So Interesting Fact--

SamusKnight or SamusKnight2K in some cases, was a user name I've used for well over 15-16 years now. Some time after Metroid has came out I took a liking to the name "Samus". It would be ironic it wasn't until a few years later I found out Samus Aran was a woman. It was initially SamusWarrior, it later became Knight. Either way after using Samus Knight (How it's actually supposed to be.) for so long I just couldn't get myself to change it. Despite Samus being a female, and despite myself being a male I didn't care, it was the name "Samus" I was attracted to. Funny too being I actually don't even like Metroid or any of the spin-offs since her NES debut. They were good, but not my type of game.

So there's your Random Not So Interesting Fact of the day. Pardon the derailing there but I wanted to cover that. But right... on topic:

I don't like the whole "toon" thing but it does no good to really rant about it, people are going to use it either way. But by the way, if it's due to chat limitations why use it on the forums? Also, why not call your main "toon" your main? Or main char? Call your other "toons" your alts. Main, alt, char, they're all about the same length as toon.
