Another username clear-up

I'll keep it exactly as-is. Because I can. And because reasons. I don't really care about vanity, only about that people recognise my name.

In all honesty, this newspost makes me upset at Jagex. Name hoarding (usually for the purpose of selling) has become a massive problem with every name sweep they do do (heh) - as admitted by themselves even. So by posting this, they essentially continue to give their problem the upper hand, again.

 

Disregarding that, isn't the criteria for clearing a name 6 months of inactivity as a F2P player and 2 years as a Member? I feel like a vast majority of players inactive for half an entire year have no plans to return.. a displayname being the least of their concern.

 

The whole process is just a mess and I wholeheartedly hope they improve the problems with releasing the names they had last year. Am I being to pessimistic here?

I honestly believe that people who are inactive for half a year may OR may not come back. I mean, look at some of the players in the RuneHQ community... There have been some who have left for a great number of years, and come back. 6 months is hardly enough time to actually judge whether or not they will stay. I mean, for some, 10 months of a year is dedicated to school...

My longest break was around 14 months.  6 months isn't really enough time IMO>  Though for F2P I can understand the shorter time line. 

 

These things don't affect me anyway.  I won't be changing anything.

I'm retired and have been for a while, but I have no intentions of giving up my username. I built my legacy on that name, a strong account, lead many clans, made countless friends. That name is mine until I die and Jagex pries it from my cold dead hands.

Thinking about it but I think I already got the two display names that I like, Master Owl and Mobius 1 (I switch between the two monthly so each one stays reserved to my account).

 

Good luck to those looking to get what they're looking for.

So 2 of my friends accounts had their names removed. Those names were gone within a day. Somehow, someone chose BOTH names, even though they aren't something most would come up with.

 

They just added/changed the numbers on the end, but still...

This will be launched this month! 

 

So my question still stands. Will you be changing your name in any way, remove numbers, shorten it?

I've never had a number in my display name before. Makes you feel like a Synth doing so. I'll be keeping my Display name, then again I'm not even actively playing RS atm.

Likely going to be towards the end of the month. It won't be this upcoming Monday, but hopefully the following. Then again, it'll probably be done at a time most of us work so I'm already expecting the worst with low hopes.

Honest answer, probably not; unless I want to change it temporarily, for a special event like Christmas; if we're not allowed to do that, then I won't change it, period.

Hello, this topic has been locked. There are many possible reasons for this...

  • the question you are asking has been answered,
  • you may have posted in the wrong forum,
  • the topic could be degenerating into/has already started a flame war,
  • the posts were straying too far from the original topic.

Your topic may have also expired. This means that no one has posted on it for a while, and it would be better to start a new topic to keep the conversation fresh.This list of reasons that your topic may have been closed is given instead of a specific reason because moderators have the option to close multiple topics at once, with this standard reply added to the topic. This is much faster than closing multiple topics manually, and gives us more time for our other work.If you have any further questions as to why this topic was closed, let me encourage you to check the FAQs, and to PM me if you do not find the answer there.Have a nice RuneHQ day. :D
