peoples identitities
 
Hi,

I used to like that your forum name was the same as your @handle - it meant I could see someone post an interesting comment on the forum and chat to them in game. It meant if I saw someone speaking about a foundry mission I could easily find it and check it out and other missions by that author....

I feel that this has been lost - is there anyway to go back to linking your forum names to your @handles? I feel as the community is fragmented without it!

I feel we should have the Oppertunity to change our @Handles now... I've been wanting to for a while. @DecadeComplete.

You see that's just it DecadeComplete - I've seen your handle around the forums, I kind of feel connected as part of the same community - this new name of yours I don't know...... don't feel the same sense of community........

Oh I'm sure I'll learn it - but not to the same extent that was possible...

I still haven't figured out how I managed to keep mine...

I think those that linked accounts before the forced merger got to keep their handles.

I know i kept mine and i linked mine several months ago.


Edit: Or at least had a better chance at it if they set up the forum handle for their PW account to have the same one as their Cryptic account.

That wasn't it in my case...

I didn't do anything to change my account till we were forced too last week.

And I've never had a PWI account till now.

That may be the reason for me, though I'm not positive about that.

You've got your cryptic @handle in game for the time being, but don't be to surprised if that changes in the next couple of months.

When you made your PWE account, you were given the opportunity to set a display name separate from the log in name. That's how I kept mine. It wasn't too well hidden, I had linked my accounts successfully the weekend before PWE said anything about it and still managed to keep my old handle.

See, I worry. I haven't linking my account yet, but I set up a PWE account a while ago... I hear it'll automatically search my emails and link them.

Though, strangely... I think I like this user name better.

That's because they reserved your @name for you. According to Branflakes, a while back they went and set up everyone's @name with a PWE account UNLESS A) You were one of those people that chose the same login and display name, or B) Someone else already had your login OR display name.
