    Did you even read what Rolle posted recently about donations and the perks attached to them? A name change is actually a service you get for buying a colored name, and it's not only a donation luxury... and this service costs a shit load more than it should. Everyone that I have brought up the name change amount/problem with found it to be an exorbitant crazy fee. I'm sure if you took a minute to think about the situation logically, and then thought about another persons concerns and not only your own, you would see there should be a compromise here too. If someone makes a mistake for whatever reason and wants/needs help with a one time fix, why should they be forced to "donate" such an unreasonable amount of money to fix a honest mistake? Everyone makes mistakes right?

    From Rolle's Bailout Thread Rolle said: Well, I guess most of the points the defenders of the name change rules made are invalid now. And we should continue the overpriced changing username service discussion... Since getting a particular name color (that allows you to make a name change) is considered a service, I feel the service being offered is an extreme price to charge for a name change almost $120. The multiple name change price should be lowered, and the addition of a lower priced alternative for a one time name change service should be made available, or even replace the current multiple name change service entirely. Treating your members (customers) with respect by offering fair priced services would go along way during these troubling times, which in turn would lead to more members also wanting to show their gratitude by donating to a forum (business) that cares about their concerns. That's all members are asking for. *shrug*
  5. No evidence on this side unfortunately
  6. Well, it played out just as Pat stated. As we approached the vehicle two people ran out from behind a near by house. One headed over to the well and one was near the truck. I ran up and yelled for everyone to get down. The first person I ran passed complied and laid on the ground. I then again told the person near the truck to get down, and informed them they stole my truck and I was taking it back. I was having a hard time getting into the truck and the person that was on the ground near the well reached for his gun and Pat protected me with cover. After shots were fired I was unaware if the others were shooting, so I quickly left the scene. The person that was near the truck was so close that he was hit when I attempted to go around him. He did not yell out don't hit me, but only yelled out that he got hit as it happened. He also had a chance to move out of the way but did not. Again, the truck was fully loaded and was far from abandoned.
  7. Hats off to all the slave masters RP performances... Also I enjoyed watching your stream Marshal after my freak session lost death... To my fellow slaves, good job as well. I hope most of you found good homes haha

    Chris... Same here, and thanks. Like I started out saying, it's worth having a conversation about, and looking at it from a few different perspectives. I will be donating soon regardless because I enjoy the server and not any other reason or luxury... but wonder if people would have had a different response to my opinion if I had a colored name already.

    It's funny you mention that, because my friend who signed up at the same time as me was granted a name change from a different admin. yes, his name was more vulgar (mine Ron Chee a play off "raunchy") but his was changed and mine wasn't. Like I said I tried to clear the name issue right away and feel I made a pretty honest mistake. I can understand everyone else arguments for willy nilly name changes but situations like mine seem to warrant a fairer look. Again, it's unfair for someone who has the name they have been known by for sometime to act like it petty for someone who also wants the same.

    N/M misread your reply flapjack

    My circumstance isn't "willy nilly" and many other newly registered members might fall in the same boat. I mentioned donating a smaller amount for a one time change, how is that not being willing to pay for the luxury of a name change? Hell, I feel I have a valid claim for a free name change, but I am willing to pay a more reasonable donation amount because I feel I want to stick around a while and I understand the stress on name changing being a luxury.

    Considering Fuckface420 is vulgar it wouldn't be approved and your point makes no sense... sorry And you might think it's nothing to you, because you're a happy camper with your username... try to think about someone else not only yourself. Yes, for whatever reason if you need to make a reasonable change to your forum name we are forced to pay because the only way to do so is by "donating". I'm just saying there should be a more reasonable amount to donate for a name change if someone might only need to do it once. Telling me "that's just how it is" doesn't fly when you're trying to go in my pocket for almost $120 bucks

    I agree with you alieb, and as you can see Search: username many others are in the same boat. Donating $113.64 to get a one time name change for whatever the reason might be is absurd. I feel accepting the staus quo here is crazy, and it's worth continuing the conversation. I am new here and am not trying to cause waves so soon, but boxing members in a corner to "donate" such an extreme amount of money for a single name change is unfair. alieb made a good point with the comparison of changing your name on Xbox Live. I understand how it normally works in forums with donating, and making donation levels more attractive and creating value so people will be willing to keep donating is part of the business to help keep the lights on, I get it. But having a one size fits all option for changing usernames needs to be tweeked a little. I could see having the ability to change your name once every 3 months a value for a small group of people, but most members I'm sure fall into the category where they would need to change their forum name maybe only once in their forum lifetime. I understand you don't want people changing their names left and right to avoid confusion with members, but granting people the option to donate a small amount (or even better yet free for a decent reason ) to change their names once wouldn't create any havoc (The forum has the ability to keep track of previous usernames in their profile, so it's not that hard to see what a users name has been in the past). Allowing a member to donate to change their name once would go a long way too. It would help some members out there who feel stuck with a name that doesn't represent them feel more attached to their "eIdentity", have them be more engaged and active in the forums, while ultimately getting them to donate at some point because of the invested time they have put into the community. Here is my username problem: I recently registered, and after being whitelisted I looked through the forums and realized my registered username wasn't required to match my IG name I originally created for my background story. I'm new to Role Playing in general, and a friend recommended this site/server and mentioned when signing up that I should have the two names match up. Having the two names match up made sense to me because I figured server admins would want to keep track of members easier and that would help. Once I finally finished the process I quickly noticed everyone using random gaming usernames and not their IG names in the forums. (And so it's clear, I haphazardly thought of this registered account name and never wanted it to be my main identity in the forums) Yes, now looking back and going over all the Rules/FAQs/Guides it does state in 1 sentence in the newcomers guide that "after you register the only way to change your username is by reaching a certain donation level". But when I first came to the site I registered first and then went through the newcomers guide and the whole whitelisting process, so I was unaware initially of how strict the username rule was. I PM'd an admin shortly after to get help with my mistake (actually PM'd Rolle first before I realized it might not be best to go straight to the top of the chain of command, so I PM'd Conor about my issue and apologized if I contacted the wrong person initially). It's been several days now, and I have yet to even get a reply back mentioning if my reason for a name change was valid or even a response saying your shit out of luck lol. So it's clear I reached out promptly so 1) I could address my problem while it was fresh and 2) so I could get a quick name change to avoid any confusion because I was/am eager to get active in the forums. I made a honest mistake registering first and then going through the whitelist process and reading all the details, and now I feel I'm being taken for. My simple mistake shouldn't cost me 4x's what the actual game did. I would hope this is a community where the members matter and are not being taken advantage of.
  15. Found this guide very informative and useful. Thanks for taking the time to create it! I'll be giving it a go soon.
