This will be a very radical suggestion to many out there, so please bare with me.#SayNoToNametags
-Remove the ability to use more than one Nametag per account.
-Also the possibility of a second use after X amount of time has passed.
-Can only be used once every X amount of time has passed.
-Can only be used X amount of times.
-After each use, time before another can be used escalates.
-Raise the price.
-Any other idea's?
-Include a "Previous names" list.
One thing you have to realize, is that "your name is your identity"
within games such as this. Using a Nametag is more than just changing your name.
There is nothing worst than people who constantly change their name. People such as myself, find ourselves constantly asking.. "who are you? >.> ". I Tend to lean towards removing them from my list, rather than trying to remember who they once were.
Or then there are those you unfriend for a suitable reason, and they change their name. How are we to recognize them?
Then there is those who gather themselves a reputation and use a Nametag to hide from said rep. Ok, fair enough.. but a reduced amount of times a player can change their name will make them think twice about gaining a reputation in the first place.
There are also individuals who troll and attempt to steal/fake another players identity.
I'm sure many other reasons can be thought of, but the biggest reason.. the reason why i am even suggesting this.. Name is identity. There is no other unique identifying markers.
We all should stick to the name we have chosen, with the ability for new users to change to a better name if chosen unwisely. That's my two cents.
