In the old days many of us had spare accounts to store our names when we put
on an o or an e or our loved one's initials. Now at 70$ a year, it is a bit
too expensive for just storage. So many marriages etc back then, community
spirit etc. Wonder why AW has not figured out that people like to do this
and work out a way for us to do it without chancing losing our original
names. Would be nice if they would let us use the # after our names, not
registering anything after the # sign as is done in object making. This way
people could put their rings on, without it actually changing the name on
people's lists and without chance of someone jumping your original name.
Simple idea, maybe too hard for techies to figure out LOL

correction....it should show the 'new name' on people's lists and in chat
rooms. Anything after the # or a space should not count in regards to our
original, paid for, AW name LOL. Any of this make any sense?

i think they should get a release from us if we change our names and someone
wants to take your original name. I changed mine for 15 minutes and someone
stole it. I used to be Nikona

That happened to me, too!!!
When I was TheRaven, I changed my name to Lady Riff Raff for 10 minutes to
make fun of somebody I didn't like. heh heh heh
WELL - somebody ELSE who didn't like ME (go figure) hehehe used another
account of theirs to steal "TheRaven".
I was TheRaven<dot> for a month before they got tired of my name.
That'll teach ME!!!

Well --- I wouldn't want to name names, but her initials are NRH o
LOLOLOL

Just for the record, everybody - Naughty and I hated each other for almost 2
yrs in AW, but either one of us knew WHY!!!
Turns out 1Unknown was feeding lies about us to each other, to make sure she
and I didn't get chummy and spoil his catting around.
*rolls eyes*

We adore each other now that we've "compared notes". sheeeesh
1Unknown sure talked a good game, but he was SUCH a LoSeR.

What a clever idea Sweets, I vision a type of addition that shows your
relationship status when you right click a name.

Can you vision a burger stating your single, a burger and fries showing
engagement, two burgers, fries, and a coke showing a family, and then
perhaps a page you can edit thats built in which allows one to wrote about
their loved one, as well as an additional page describing yourself in AW!

Touch of sarcasm, seiya?? It may be a silly idea (yours with the burgers and
fries absolutely ridiculous) but it is something that has been done since I
can remember, adding o, e or initials. So why not make it legal so we can
all have fun with it? That is all I was saying

I could see this work if you just wanted to add one letter at end of
your name.

For example, Builderz would be my main username but there could be an
option in the settings to add one extra letter after your name. You
could enter "e" or "o" into this, and your name would then look like
Builderz o or Builderz e or whatever.

Maybe the extra letter could be in a different color? On second thought,
that would probably look pretty odd.

But there could be some form of abuse with this. What if I wanted to
change my name to Builderz PK and pretend to be a PK in front of a bunch
of newbies? That's why I think the limit should only be one letter and
nothing more.

People could be walking around with things like Security, CEO, AW, etc.
after their names and try to cause some havoc -- or just a bunch of
random characters at the end of their names.

Another problem would trying to telegram the person. Could you enter in
their cit name with the extra letter (like Builderz o) or do you need to
telegram their main cit username without the letter (Builderz) for the
gram to go through? Would the uni make an "alias" and link it to your
main cit name while you had the extra letter so you could telegram both
your main name and/or the extra letter? Lots to think about with this...

Another idea would to just have an icon next to your name (like the AFK
icon) that shows whether you are married, engaged, single, etc.
