It's just a subtle message that the universe hate Mostly Harmless too.

The first ten million years were the worst, and the second ten million years, they were the worst too. The third ten million I didn't enjoy at all. After that I went into a bit of a decline, then they nerfed my name.

Bet I know what happened...

There's a 2003 player named "Mostly Harmless" and a 2003 corp named "Veni Vidi Vici"

I bet the duplicate names screwed with the new contact list ccp did for spacebook integration, so instead of fixing the problem they just jacked some people's names in the case of duplicates and awarded ownership of the name to whoever had it first.

Kind of a lazy and crappy way to handle things, and one that doesn't show much regard for customers' feelings, but again I bet that's the answer.

They changed the naming convention so that you can't have multiple spaces. That produced the naming conflict and forced the rename as stated by the previous poster.

Pretty crappy situation for the people that got borked, but hopefully CCP will make it right.

If only they had had some opportunity to think of a better way to handle this sometime in the past.

Like ahm, maybe 5 years ago or whatever when IGAs came ingame and certian not-to be named- alliances had problems with previously named corps etc.

But yeah borking the name of an existing ingame alliance in favor of a character without a chance to discuss it is pretty bad.

P.S. oh and dollars to donuts says the pos shooting thing is because of building off of code from before the more recent alliance/pos configuration thingies.

Well that would certainly explain what happened to my map. For the last half-hour I had been looking at whether it was a problem with something I was doing.

I just don't get why the GM's aren't renaming them. Plain and simple .... They've done Alliance renaming in the past already ... Kenzuku > Bob Reloaded -> Kenzuku.

Why hasn't this been fixed already?

Among the alliance names, a couple outposts have lost their names aswell, but the owners have changed them back already ingame. Or is there a new button ingame "Rename my alliance" and people have to do the change on their own?

I vaguely remember CCP saying they were going to remove double spaces in names, as MH used to have this I would guess this is the source of the hiccup.

Not sure I like the "-name-" format Confused

Ok, so Mostly HarmelssDOT didn't come to fruition. Its now DASH Mostly Harmless DASH. Thats almost too much work.
Though It is nice to see an alliance get some resolution fairly quickley. As much fail as they are they didn't deserve the ninja name pwnage
