You do realize that if you are over the cap of toons, yes you get to keep them, but IF you delete one of those toons, you will NOT be able to recreate a toon in that spot. Doesn't matter how many slots you've bought.

Just make them what you want. ^Read above note.

What's the point? So someone can take all the good names I got?

*nods* I've already been dong this. In most cases even alts with the same names on servers to be merged. I've got a feeling that is going to help out on resources even if just a little.

I went through and cleaned house before I saw the merge stuff... I couldn't remember what the concept of any of the old toons were. So I canned them all and made 4 new ones. I still need to force myself to do some republic toons though...

Doubt my names will clash with anyone as Ive been including a first and last name for all. My surnames are pretty obscure and its easy enough to turn off the legacy name (so they don't have 2).

Same. I'm filling all my slots up with toons I will be playing. I just don't like the idea of losing out on so many slots over the three main servers I play, this way I'll have a fair few to keep me going for a while. I also try to create two names on most if not I use what I think are pretty obscure names.

I have 81 slots over 3 servers, If I don't fill them I lose 54 of them and possibly have to delete several before I can create more. This way I don't lose any and they should last, yes it only works one time around but that shouldn't happen for a long time, depending on how often they are played and how long it takes to be done with them.

The intention was never to delete them.
Made some pretty awesome looking chars Im looking forward to playing and I love all the story.

This.

By merging my chars on servers together they were going to make me hit my cap. By making chars in advance it'll keep me busy for a long time.

Short answer - no.

Long answer - **** no!
There's only one of my 19 characters that I would consider voluntarily deleting. (One of the two characters I made for the DvL event last year.)
