Trickster Naming Conventions
Have you ever wondered why a lot of TO players (I don't know if this happens in other MMO's) name themselves in a similar fashion?
I'm talking about naming trends.
InMemoryOf / InMeMoRyOf_______
x______ <-- x in front of a name, e.g. xHayate
i_____ <-- iRain, iTalk, iCall, etc.
oO____Oo <-- O's before and after the name
xX_____Xx <-- X's this time, and I've seen this outside TO
_______x3 <-- The x3 smilie before or after the person's name
Out of personal taste, if a name I like is taken, I won't attempt to duplicate it by adding x's, o's or anything like that to it. No offence to people with names like that of course, I've tried it myself too. My sheep was xSayakax before she reidentified to Sayakah. After a while, I'm just not comfortable with a generic looking name, but many people seem content about it.
