Maybe to solve this, only allow 3 names allowed on an iP or something like that. Putting some type of cap on the number of names one person has shouldn't cause too much trouble because not many people have 3 different people playing ss on the same computer.

And really, no one really needs more than 3 anyways.

Also, there should be a name deleting feature... somehow make it secure and if someone wants to get rid of a name they made up, they could have it open for the "market." If there was a cap on how many names a person could have, people might be using this feature and freeing up more desired names.

So what if a guy named RandomName becomes a ZH and gets the <ZH> tag, and later an <ER> tag? Will he be stuck with those three? And what if someone already had 3 names and then joins staff? Will he be forced to drop one of his old nicks (which may be very active on a different zone under SSC)?

Hey now! That's a stupid idea!

Do you really think people (like annux) have 1 ip address?

Hmm. I see that this idea didn't fly.

Just a thought though...

The principle is sound.

It isn't feasible though :)
