Delete or rename Player 'V'

Postby patrickaa317 on Mon Nov 05, 2012 9:47 pm

I always end up inviting the below person to a game by not holding ctrl hard enough. By deleting his account or renaming it, it would alleviate this issue. This player never played any games and the last time he visited was the exact same time he joined. This should be a quick, easy thing the new webmaster could do and immediately make all the tournament organizers that make this mistake happy. Let's get it done!

Well, you picked just about the worst day of the year to make this recommendation.

I got it instantly Mets :) That is quite a coincidence.

I have no idea whether just deleting an account happens. Also, I assume that you'd want some sort of restriction on signing up for an account with this name?

Yeah, just finished my obligatory watching of the movie when I saw this thread :)

It's not common practice to delete accounts entirely, but name changes happen relatively often in the case of inappropriate usernames. Since the account in question has not played a single game, I don't think anyone will complain too loudly if we change this person's username, and block anyone from creating the username "V."

I didn't even think of a name change. Patrick, I'd suggest PM'ing an admin about this. It's something they can do with their tools and they'd probably be able to tell you right away whether it will be done.

If a username has been changed, as of right now, we do not have any tools to prevent anyone from coming up with that former name once again.

^ Correct. If he happens to be a multi afterall then that person made that name no longer available after the bust and we'd be back of having an existing account named "V".

Update: PM replied to the TS.
As for other similar suggestions, we will still stick to no.4 of the FAQ's page regarding username change requests.

but at least it would solve the problem for now ... And anyone picking that username in the next few days is probably a multi who's seen this thread and is being a smartass. And if it did happen again, perhaps we could just politely ask the user if he wouldn't mind his name being changed to "V." or "Vee" or something similar.

Basically, if you're a tournament organizer and you're sending out invites to a lot of players all at once, you're going to copy and paste (e.g. Ctrl+C and then Ctrl+V on many operating systems) the usernames into the invite box. The problem is that if you accidentally don't depress the Control key during the paste step, you're just going to invite player "v" to your game. This is problematic because as there's still no way to cancel a game invite, that spot is held up for 24 hours by a player that's not on the site, much less in the actual tournament.

when inviting someone to a game TO's often copy the name from some where else (using Ctrl C) and paste it in the invite section (Using Ctrl V) especially for multiple invites.
Sometimes they'd slip on the CTRL and end up inviting user V instead of the correct user and have to drop the game, remake it and send back the invites... Could be time consuming.
