Default Green Naming Policy (Petition)

Greetings Devs and Friends;

I am super grateful for the time you have all spent in developing P99 and in no way am I trying to sound entitled, or as if your efforts aren't sufficient, etc. I am full aware you guys are aiming for a classic experience and not to crowd please.

The official announcement for Green has me ecstatic! I have been literally planning for this server since a former GM told me about it in 2014, and have been planning characters, playing ALS style (since before ALS was a thing lol) just day dreaming about a new server.

With that said, I feel there should be reconsideration for the Green Naming Policy -- perhaps for Green to be its own dumping ground for future Green servers? Or to simply add an x upon merging to blue?

With over 1,000,000 characters created on Blue, it just seems so many names are already taken. And I do not mean names like "Detoxx" and "Hokushin", etc. But literally multiple accounts of "name banks" by players long gone. I just hope you might would consider, that the summit of your project 1999, the completion of it for a whole new adventure with Green, could be started out on a fresh ground and that our names would not be limited to what is left over from a 10 year old beta, with over 1,000,000 characters.

Change the non manipulative answer to "but I wanted to pretend to be Kraddok!"

Maybe they’ll run inactive level (X) accounts script and wipe unused names?

This. I feel like if you don't play your character for a really long time (I'd vote a year, but I'd imagine staff would be kinder and do two or three) your name automatically becomes pleasePetitionForARename1234.

I think they should save names for any lvl 60 on blue. Those lvl 60 names can be re-created on green from the same account.

Wipe the rest.

This simultaneously eliminates banked names on ghost accounts AS WELL AS allow well known and established blue p99 players the ability to keep their identity, and names, of their main characters.

Just my 2cp
