the above name is a name i chose from YOUR name generator yet my application to join this game was declined because my name didnt fit the name requirements. well if that name doesnt fit then your name generator doesnt work right.
The first Name Corsair could have been the problem. All new Accounts must be approved by hand and that might have been the cause. And yes, the random name generator can come up with names that wont be accepted. But it works just fine. Thats why its called Random. I would suggest thinking of a new name and trying to Register again.
All accounts are accepted by hand, so you probably just fell foul of someone being a little overzzealous that day. I don't see why "Corsair" wouldn't be acceptable, really. I mean I know it's actually a word, but it's used as a name as well not-infrequently.
Worse names have slipped through, for sure.
"May the Grace of Ara go with you, and His Vengeance be wrought upon your enemies."
That handle would most likely have been accepted, had it been subject to manual approval. Did you receive an e-mail in which it was rejected, or did it simply inform you immediately after submitting the form that the handle was invalid?
If the second is the case, then this is a known issue at the moment, since there are some issues lately with valid handles being rejected. The fastest option would be to just submit some other handles instead until you find one that works, until this can be resolved.
If you did indeed receive an e-mail, that means someone manually rejected the application. You can try again and hope you get someone who approves it, or, as mentioned, try another handle entirely.
