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 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.

I did it when it was forced on us and I've still got the same name.

However, I had to set my account name to something else so I could keep Radkip as my displayed name. Which I don't mind, I have about 4 account names I cycle through all across the internet.

At this rate, the only thing we can do to save our Identities is put something in our Sig IDing ourselves with our old Cryptic Name.

I just hope PW lets us keep our Cryptic Account in STO, else things will be thrown into chaos as we wouldn't know know who is who.
