Solo
Skywalker
Fett
Boba
Revan

etcetera

/MSG me tonight Keir, all I can say is that Solo is way more popular than skywalker (for a damn good reason too)

We can add these words to the ban list for handles, should we put it up for a vote?

They aren't canon though.

Nor can most people name two people with Ismay actually in their handle.
Start hacking at the canon names. Ban Palpatine and Vader while you're at it too, please?

..Veers..?

Problem is, if you're going to prevent the use of *some* canon names, all need to be blocked.

That's basically going to be impossible. (:

Also problematic in case existing characters with such surnames desire to re-create as a family member or invite friends to play as family members.

Perhaps instead allow all such players the option of getting a handle change at any time?

Theres a few people slipping by with names that arent names. Example: Koz Ofyurdeth


Year 6 Day 233 22:46
why isn´t that a name?

Because it's designed to be pronounced as "Cause of your death"?

He's just spelt it in such a way as to slip past the "must be a name" requirement.

still a name,
there is alot of names in the combine that means completely different things in other languages. I have seen people named after some sort of food and other things.

Some people doing join requests are more lenient than others, is what it usually comes down to. (: And I'm sure some are mistakes as well.

However, those in question, such as Koz Ofyurdeth, are not actually in the filter as banned names, and therefore still require manual approval.

I believe the suggestion here is to add canon names into the coded filter so they would not even be able to get to the next step of the approval process without entering a different name.

Still an issue as, like I mentioned, basically all canon names would need to be added if any are.

If all canon are banned and the case of a friend or recreated relative after death comes up, couldn’t they join as John or Jane “Canon” and have the friend already in the combine lay claim to them for a name change to a canon one as they begin their life as John Skywalker.

Problem I see with the name change any time for cannon names is someone goes thief of becomes wanted and then gets name change to slow down pursuit (I know posted in Sim News, read them all).

Is this last names only or first and last?
Couldn’t the top 25-50% of Canon be banned?
Bal Organa and other non top 50 characters aren’t overused…

I understand your consistency point Syn but, my Pre-character creation research showed that the canon half of my name wasn’t overused and I would consider it rare. [A few of you are bound to be thinking “Part of his name is canon?” right now.] Syn I realize my creation presses isn’t peoples norm.

Handle changes are only done when the handle breaches the handle rules (http://rules.swcombine.com/character/charactercreation/), not whenever someone wants.

Khan,
I don't know if that responce was to my idea or others before me.

If needed clarifying, my idea was only for name changes at first creation (not mid character history). Change was only if canon are blocked (I understand the need) and for expantion of current Canon name families (friend joining or current character died and new would be a relitive).
