OK, so I am sure there are toons out there that the owners would love to change the name on, both for legitimate and nefarious purposes. Also, being a protagonist of CCP and of Eve, I propose the following.
  1. For some fee (real currency) an account holder may opt to change a characters name.

  2. By default, the chars bio would have (A.K.A. OLD NAME) so that a corp thief cannot escape their own reputation.

  3. (Quoted from suggestions later in this thread)

  4. Only doable once a year, like remaps


  5. Same cost as a character portrait swap


  6. History of name change is on the character sheet


  7. History of name change is on the limited API


  8. Can't change a name within 48 hours of leaving a corp


PLEASE consider this...dear god please!

No, I mean protagonist which is the nominative synonym of proponent, except that proponent lacks the element of advocacy.

Fair enough.

Though you just argued away the only person to post in your thread so far. Razz.

This sounds like a panic attack due to impending Incarna patch and realisation that poorly chosen name is going to be a millstone around the Avatar's neck...

Oops, sorry but you should have given character creation more time than going for cheap lols if wanting character to be taken seriously.

Not supported.

Pretty much this. Just live forever in shame with your horrible, horrible name.

Not supported.

Creating a name as a joke on another.
Realising the joke is on oneself.
Priceless.

'nuff said.

It is possible that this name was not chosen. I really see no harm in allowing CCP to generate more revenue by extending the ability to change a name.(Supported)

I would also agree,

Being a toon that would also like to change the name....
I would add one more thing to the online fee for name changing after I read your name.... (thinking of the children)
A portion of the fee goes to some charity of some sick children or something.

How can ccp say no to that :)

I don't have problems with my names, though I like the idea of a history tab for our chars.

One point though.. make it bound to RL cash payments. If you allow isk to be used for name-change you support scamming behaviour on a massive scale..

No it really is not.

Only cases where a name is not a direct result of conscious thought is for the "<Race>CitizenXXXXX" cases .. and they still brought it on themselves by deliberately choosing a name that violated Eve's almost non-existent naming policies.

You break it, you bought it.

yes, there should be option for name change, as long as change record is visible in the same way employment history is.

Hirana,

We all like Eve. Why not help it to grow, give people another way of enjoying the game, and raise more money for Eve?

http://encarta.msn.com/dictionary_1861736395/protagonist.html



I still say the use of the word 'protagonist' is wrong here. A protagonist does not stand alone, but is set against the background of other characters. Which is to say, there's always an element of competition. Either it's the 'main character' (in novels and/or movies); or 'one of the main characters.' But always with other folks in the picture too, making him/her the protagonist. 'Protagonist,' in the sense of an advocate of something, obeys the same rule: it's an advocate amidst other involved parties (like detractors, for instance).

'Proponent' certainly doesn't lack the element of advocacy. See: proponent

In fact, 'proponent' is really the word you're looking for if you want to express that you're 'pro' something (whilst being neutral about possible other parties involved).

Also, even "proponent of CCP" is not entirely proper English. You can be a proponent of ideas, or plans, change, etc; but not of a name of a company. "I'm a proponent of the existence of CCP," for example, would be correct English. In the former case, you'd just say something like: "I'm a huge supporter of CCP."

Ok, Point taken.

However, think of it this way. You may be a proponent of (for example) peace. You would not be a protagonist of peace, however, unless you took some form of action to bring it about...which I do for eve. I dabble in fiction, I subscribe, I get others to subscribe. To me that is a tad more than just a proponent of eve.

Hirana,

Because Eve is unique in the respect that it does not cater to the instant gratification crowd like practically all competitors.

Eve rewards perseverance, intelligence, people skills etc., once you start down the path of rewarding (more than already) whomever has more cash to burn in real life Eve may make more money but it will be worse for it.

What would be next? SP for ISK? Ships/mods for ISK? How about a store like those of the Free-to-play games?

If you **** up in Eve, tough ****. You get up and go out mess someone else up to make yourself feel better .. it is the human way, it is the Eve way.
