time to complain to the community

Unread postby SolarStar » 27 May 2015, 15:42

It's time to complain again  :cry:

In EL chat it has become a widespread habit to use the initials in big letters of that player.
Then we have Dar_elik, SolarStar, Shiidiman, and then you make DE, SS and SM out of it.

OMG ppl first, not everyone is familiar with it. Don't go on public channels with it and the abbreviations are sometimes not very nice. I suggest , choose a nice name when creating a character, one that you can spell and pronounce. Best with no _ signs. I'm not complaining about nicknames, because I do that myself. Shiggi alright  :thumbsup:

There is another trick, type the first 3 lettery of a playername and do autocomplete. To do autocomplete hold down CTRL and pless space until the correct name appears.

:omg:

Oh! so that's how you auto fill someone's name, I always click something by accident and wonder why a random persons name has come up xD

Well so far i have never seen DE for dar, nor SM for shiidi, SS I use once :)
I regularely use DD for Deep(Dragon/Dive) also DS for sunter, and also I use to abbreviate other names like:
gwin, ared, lore, solar, eats, adam and probably many more (dont feel left out if i didnt mention you here ;) ).

I don't see any abbreviations here so far which are not nice, like would be IDIOT, DUMB, etc ;)

I know what you are refering to with the abbreviation i once used for your name, yet its alwasy up to the intention of why i use it, which is purely for shortening names and be able to type faster - besides (personal opinion) I think we should be past that by now and not always boil that matter of 1945 up again (just had that topic today wiht a co-worker today - we are 2nd-3rd generation past that now)

I also don't see why we shouldn't use abbreviations on public channels.

If it really bugs you if your name is called with an abbreviation .. then tell me and i try to avoid that for your chars, but going that fat to tell what character names should be made like I think is a bit too much ;)

But thanks for the tip with the autocomplete I am sure some who are reading this channel find it useful anyways :)

Kind regards
Adam

Just FYI, I don't care for "DE" when referring to me. I usually won't even notice someone is talking to me if they use that. ;)
(And, while we're on the subject, I really can't stand when someone calls me "Elik" or "Dare", lol)

I just prefer plain ol' "Dar". :)
