why would you need to switch names, couldn't you just ignore the chat or whatever "others" are doing?[/quote]I_Died_Once wrote:But I know and am recognized so much that now, I am the one switching to unregistered names just so I can get a game on. So I know and understand why someone might not want to use their actualy name on any server.
Well, I think it has something to do why some of the "well to do" don't wanna be "seen" at a given server, plus some.
I don't know about any other server owners, but sometimes, not always, when I join a server and people "recognize" me as having to-do with Planet MoFo, I'll get people whispering to me "oohhhh! I love your server! Its my fave! Can I ba an admin there? I just love it SOOO much"
...and it cramps my style. I wanna get my game on, not talk about my server. ESPECIALLY is the whole conversation is being held at, say, Vipers or badgerking's. If I wanted to talk and deal with MoFo, I'd go to MoFo. So yeah, sometimes I'll use a non-registered name, or a separate registered name I got idden on the side.
Now, I know this just makes me crazy and nuttier than a fruitcake - I'm just sayin'.
And after all of this, once in a blue moon, some admin will recognize my IP address and ask "Are you kin to Vader???"
