Allow Users to Choose Nicknames

Postby DoomYoshi on Thu Jan 24, 2013 10:52 am

Concise description:
  • The part below a username is what I call a "nickname" e.g. Admin

Specifics/Details:
  • A nice Premium Perk would be for us to be allowed to choose our own nicknames
  • Mafiascum has a public nomination for other players nicknames, a system like that could work here

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
  • People won't have to worry as much about their terrible usernames.
  • Tournaments could offer a new perk: nickname

Would you restrict users from picking a nickname like "Site Administrator?"

To be clear things that would not be appropriate for Usernames would still be considered inappropro right?
Sounds pretty cool. A good incentive to purchase premium as well.

Just a question, at the end you say Tournies can offer a new perk:nickname... How does tournaments offer the nickname? Did you mean to say Premium?

I would like to have nicknames that'd be cool :)

Well, the way mafiascum does nicknames is that a certain team of volunteers assigns them, based on requests by the community. If that was the case, rather than just the willy-nilly free-for-all of everyone pick your own nickname, they could also be assigned by tourney victory.

Or even clans could have their clan name in there. That type of stuff. Special awards or Yoshi Nominations.

I see

I like this idea, I can't decide whether I like just anyone being able to have a nickname, or just winners of certain tournies, or any tourny winner... Not sure but I am sure that I'd like to see some form of this

Ok, so I guess submitted? This is a really cheap way to make users have more fun, I know it is already encoded in the php, we just need to activate the feature somehow. I volunteer to be one of the volunteers if we go that route.

While I think this would be fun, I think a few more parameters probably need set before it's submitted. What's allowed? What is not allowed?

Anything that's not allowed as a username, and anything that contains any false iteration of "moderator, administrator, etc.". I like the idea of a volunteer who takes requests and bestows them, that will keep C+A involvement to an absolute minimum.
