My name is Robert Simpson and when I applied for membership I tried to use Robert Simpson as my handle name but the application was denied and this is the email I received with the reason:
Dear Robert Simpson,
The SW Combine Administration has declined your membership application providing the following reason :
Your handle does not match our current rules requirements. It was turned down because it either contains numbers/special characters or it doesn't sound like a name (ie: Red Wolf). Please refer to the Character Creation rules page located at /rules/?Character_Creation for more information.
Please make the necessary changes and try again. If you have any questions or queries feel free to post on the Problem Centre or visit the help room on IRC (#swc-help).
The SW Combine Administration
Star Wars Combine
Please help me out and tell me why I can't use my actual name?
Well hello there. I was the one who declined your handle.
As I go through the list of join requests, often i'll login and there will be quite a few names awaiting me. As I go through we have neat little buttons that can redirect us directly to google or wikipedia for a quick cross-check of the name submitted so we can weed out any that belong to other fictional universes, real-life famous people, etc.
In your case, your name turned up the same as a famous composer from England who composed upwards of 11 symphonies and 15 string quartets and therefore I denied your request for the following rule: "9. You may not have a handle that closely resembles that of a famous real life person or organisation." You see, he's sort of a big deal in the world of classical music.
Please submit something that is not your name, not a name for someone famous, and maybe even something a little more exotic for the exotic universe we find ourselves in. Thank you.
