So, with the new feature coming early february, who is considering a name change?
I am considering losing the _haps at the end of my name, hoping orionic, or orionicly is available.
Will kittens go back to Michelle14fcali ??

Wait, what's this about? I don't keep up with the news recently, so...
AKA Rvan. That's R.van; you pronounce it as "Ar-van", not "R-van".

I've been thinking about changing to Myst_Walker to coincide with my youtube channel, and to get rid of the stupid numbers in my current one

FYI, we were just talking about forcing your forum username to match your Minecraft account last night... so for some people this could be good.
<Emp> There are only three acceptable reasons to call me at 5am. He will die for his crimes.
<Feldherren> If he sounds tipsy he's probably dead drunk.
<EmpC> I have seen moo dead drunk, I left him in Seattle. And yes, dwarves are weird

Huh, this is pretty cool.... some of our players should take advantage of this. I won't name any names... mostly because I can't even begin to spell whatever excuse of a name the players I am thinking of have.

Empirical is sadly pretty common so when it's not available I end up using a derivative name (almost always the same one). For fantasy settings I usually have a few names tucked away; Lyis being the most common.
