Somehow I expected the name he coveted to be more special than that. Oh well.

This entire thread is an outrage! I can't believe this guy gets to take my name just because he wants it. Who thought this was a good idea? I demand compensation in the form of companion shower sequences being added to strongholds.

He`s safe, it`s not one of mine And Charon would have sounded way better anyway.

It didn't start off as crazy as it became. In the first few pages I was really interested by the "you can tell if a person is using a character thing"...until I realized you really can't. The only thing you can tell by the friends list is the person's name if they're offline. So if the character in question from the OP was level 33 last time they were online theres no real way to tell if they're leveling or not.....unless you happen to be logged in the same time they are. (I tested this myself in the beginning. Offline friends don't show level. )

Though shower sequences would be acceptable. Like the "Woohoo" animation in the Sims.

Is getting a specific character name really this importand to people

To clarify: this is not sarcasm nor is it inteded to be offensive to anyone who lost/cant find their favorite/original character name.

I myself lost nearly all my character names in the two server merges, but I just cant imagine using them again. And not just because they now belong to someone else, but because those names I will never use again, those characters got a new wardrobe and a new name (some I deleted instead).

So if I had the chance to take back even one of those names, recreate my character with that name, I wouldn't do it.... that said, if anyone demanded one of my character names I wouldn't agree, haven't even used my free name-change tbh...

Say you got this name you so desperately want, would you truely be happy? whould the character that you lvled with the 'old' name still be yours? would it's personality stay the same? would it's look still reflect what you had in mind when you created it.... is it realy what you want? (if it is, perhaps you should take the sugesstion offered earlier and contact the person who has this name that you do desperately desire.)
I am everywhere*!!!

It isn't being held hostage, and it isn't unjust in any way. Anymore than someone owning a vacation home that they never use is holding that home "hostage". Just because you want to live there, and they don't use it, doesn't give you the right to move in.

Yeah that would work great for military players on deployment. Or people that just want to take a vacation IRL.

EDIT: And why limit it to level 49s or below? Why not be able to steal names from level 55s too?

The correct spelling would be wiener, by the way. The sausages are named Wiener Würstchen. From "Wien", the German (and therefore correct!) name for Vienna.

I always wonder why english speakers tend to write it weiner.
