Up the length of names to 25 characters

Really, that's it -- 25 characters. It's not a huge technological barrier, just updating a database field in possibly a few places. If you get really crazy, you can let people re-size the target window so a name fits entirely (or people can just resize fonts if they so wish.)

Please, please though, up the length of the charater name field. Thanks ( ' :

I could get behind this. I have to scrap SO many names I want to use, because they're 21 characters and I RefuseToRunNamesTogether, because it's nearly unreadable to me.

More than 25, and I'd have to say no: It would just get too unweildy when you have to type someone's name in.

Good idea. When CoV came out, we got an extra five spaces, enough to add "Evil " to any existing character name. Now, with Praetoria and its shades of gray, we need another five spaces to add "Less " to any existing character name. This would finally allow me to make my dream character, "Less Evil Big Mountebank."


Issue 16 made me feel like this.

Oh man, I had totally forgotten about the "Evil [character name]" rationale. That was really the silliest thing. Did anybody ever actually do this?

Any sillier than "Lord Underwear Man"?

And fix the damn text boxes already! Still broken since AE came out and make using the mouse and even selecting the end of a line nigh impossible!

Gotta get on board with this suggestion; I don't see why it shouldn't or couldn't be updated, and it'd make a LOT of people happy. /signed

Oh yeah?

Well, size isn't everything.

Just so people don't get into a huff: the above was a snarky, camp remark with no other purpose than messing around.

It wouldn't hurt although I've only come up against the limit once myself. Lord Darkity Dark of Darkness was forced to become merely Lord Darkity Dark. Although 25 characters would still only get Lord Darkity Dark of Dark.

Yes but according to you anyone who comes up against a "text limit" in this game isn't being "concise" enough anyway.

Whoa hold the phones. It's possible?

Why someone would have such a ridiculously long name is beyond me. No one even likes saying longer names. They usually just find a nickname that's about one-two syllables long for the character.

But I'll /sign anyway 'cause that's just personal opinion and isn't a genuine issue with the feature.
