Brandon, is there any way for those of us that had a pwe forum account and a cryptic account linked before the merger to change our forum names? I hope I am not stuck with the one I came up with for the Neverwinter forums :redface: I would really like to switch it to the name I was using on the Cryptic forums.
Account linking will soon be non-optional. If you have a Cryptic account and link now, you can claim a special item in Star Trek Online. Also, the sooner you link, the better chance you have of getting your preferred account name and display name.
But it won't be policy to provide different @names to forum names in general, right? There's never been a divide here before, and I don't imagine that will become standard policy, will it?
And some of our @names are taken via PWE account/forum names, right?
So what's going to happen if/when the PWE account/forum alter ego to our @names decides to join STO or CO?
Will we keep our @name and they'll be given the chance to choose a new @name different than their account/forum name for PWE?
Will they claim our @name, since so far PWE users have, by default, regardless of seniority or even active status, claim over account/forum names it appears. And if that happens, what then...? Does our @name default to our PWE account/forum name? Do we even get to choose another one? Do we get automatically amended to, say, HappyHappyJoyJoy-1?
What can we expect if this comes to pass?
