While the characters can be deleted, their names are STILL in use by the database (which cannot be changed.)
-inb4 "Originality" comments-I don't know how to put this into easier terms.Characters / Guilds (level 3 with only one person in them if inactive) should be deleted if not active for YEARS at a time. This is a limiting factor to server creativity.I've once made a ticket about a name, asking if it was even an active character and I found out that it hadn't been online in over two years.Why not take all these characters, that haven't been online in literal -years- and delete them so that others may use their names? Same goes for guilds. If there's some inactive, 1 character guild that hasn't been online in 2+ years why are they even still in the game database. It's not like they are going to come back to game anytime soon.I say this because i'm starting to see PWI tier creativity issues. With XxXxMLGxXxXX or [AltCodeStar]Name[AltCodeStar] usernames and guilds.People may say "use creativity" but please. Lets be honest here. I'm sure that everyone who has played a PW server has had to put in at least 5+ different names and still have them all taken.I know for a fact if upon request Agatio may take upon the liberty to delete certain characters, ect. Why not just delete all the old characters that are literally crowded with cobwebs? No, I'm not asking for a server wipe. I just know that a mass deletion would benefit many players on the server.
I just read the title but i must say that yes theres lot's of faction names used and never been actives for years so they are empty never active so names are locked. Also i belive that all these years lot's of people joined the server making chars to see how it is and quited , i belive the amount of that is huge.
i dont really agree with deleting someones toon.. if i had to go mia for awhile and came back and everything was deleted i would be pretty upset. and i mean theres a few taken names i would love but i live with it xD i think it would take ALOT of time for agatio to go through and fine some player that hasnt played in awhile and edit the toon only for you to take the name. also how many "taken" names has been eaten by the I.D stones to
