I bet that wouldn't take you a couple of years or anything.

Relax, your standards of what is and what is not acceptible is your opinion and thats all. You have no right to decide what is or isn't right for someone else. Those dorks who name themselves darthname or mastername are just going to go through their chars life looking like a fool, and to me that is punishment enough.

It's originality I believe that shines in a name. Limn'ersatz for example meaning "to highlight an example of a poor substitution"

If you must use names from SW canon, be clever.

I'm more bothered by names that aren't names at all. Like Comfychair or Teapot, the kind of names someone who completely lacks imagination would use. I'm also annoyed by names that appear in other games, like Satharion, Ragnarios and such - adding one letter to them won't disguise it.

Whenever I make a character I try to think of something parents would plausibly name their baby in the universe I'm playing in. A Twi'lek mother wouldn't call her son MikeSmith...

Well, if I could spell true, I suppose. However, that I am better versed in the English language than some, I will take your compliment as a dare.

Thank you.
I agree with you fully but it wont matter!

Your on a PVE server and asking for name moderation

Im on 2 RP servers and asking for the same thing and get ******ed when ever I do ask.

If RP Server people cant get names moderated (and ALLOT have asked), dont think you got much hope of a PVE server getting moderated.

Best we can hope is once the bad and stupid names are done looking for attention, they quit and head back to WOW. Cant tell you how much Im looking forward to the 20th of this month. I figure many (not all of course but many) of the dumb names will cancel accounts rather then pay a monthly charge and all servers will get a bit more mature and better.

Other thing you can do to avoid the majority of the bad names (again not all but a good portion of them) is before 11 pm local server time, play a character thats in Tatooine or higher level planet.

Thats what I been doing to improve my game experience.

Before 11pm I play the medium and high level game and after 11 pm I then play my lower level characters.

While not a exact science it does seem to be that MOST of the dumb named people (and the chat idiots that talk about stuff most dont want to hear about) dont level past Nar Shaddaa. Many dont even make it that far. And most of them have bed times and you rarely see any of them past 9 pm (but I say wait till 11 to be sure). Figure why give them the attention they desire so much by creating names they know will get a responce. Thats all their doing! Looking for responces.

Ignore the bad names (literally put on ignore)
Play at times they very unlikely to play at
Play on planets they very unlikely to reach even when they are playing

That seems to be about all we can do as Bioware honestly hasnt shown any interest in doing and quality control regarding names.

Your right, Established Star Wars and other works names should be off limits on all servers.
On RP servers there should be a even stricter nameing policy to promote immersion and enviroment

but thats doesnt seem to be a pressing issue with Bioware so what ever. Nothing we can do but speak with our dollars.

I like this game so I not cancelling personally.
As for other Bioware titles,
Well lets just say it will be a cold day in hell
In regards to lessening F2P and Preferred restrictions
In GAMING, as in LIFE,
You get what you pay for
No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it
