In the beginning, there were terrible corp names.

Then, came terrible corp names with periods after them.
Then, came terrible alliance names.
Then, came terrible alliance names with periods after them.

Then...came terrible alliance names with THREE PERIODS AFTER THEM.

Its LONG past time that CCP start 'recycling' old and abandoned corporation/alliance names. Since we're now past five years, make that the cutoff - names that have not been used for five years should come available.

And dare I say, the same for characters? If a character has been abandoned for five years, they're not coming back.

It's called an ellipsis, and it's better than one.

Progressive little buggers. They skipped the two period alliance names altogether.

CCP should allow underscores in alliance names.

Their alliance name is also in ALL CAPS. All that's missing is some numbers.

This.

When alliances called D4M4G3 INC... start appearing, I think I'll lose the will to live.

Ah, the good old days of STAIN ALLAINCE.

All trial accounts that were never activated and are older than 6 months old need to be purged from the database. Free up all the names!!!

Same goes for old corp names and alliances!

Just give them a citizen number for a name and add the old name to their lists of known aliases.

The XcharactersX and XxXalliancesXxX are way worse, those people should be banned, make something up and ban them.
