This is the email I received, this combine appears to be perhaps as much a waste of time as a previous game...although to date it has not cost me a dime :) Still if it dont work it dont work...and time wasted is time wasted....
Dear Sold Azis,
The SW Combine Administration has declined your membership application providing the following reason :
Your handle does not match out current rules requirements. It was turned down because of the presence of a restricted name or adjective, such as ?Lord?, ?Count? or ?Darth?, or an existing Star Wars character name was chosen such as ?Luke Skywalker? or ?Han Solo?.
Hey if the last name was Soldwalk I would approve it. Like Syn said, sounding like "sold as is" is not a name. But I just declined in on the word Sold. I will also not approve the names Bud, Ace, April, Red or any other name that is a word in the real world, a real name or not. I think today's parents are stupid, what are some people thinking.
Players have also been able to avoid the handle rules when they create a second character after dying, since there has not been an approval system in place, and such handles are automatically used. I believe that is being worked on now, if it has not already been coded.
In short, old handles which were accepted prior to these procedures continue to exist, but these days if someone slips past they are generally asked to select a new handle.
