Few things still remain unclear, like what did they mean in regards to the Guild Lists and the Buddy Lists? Is the name change permanent?

Though, Nexon seems to have heard and thought about the hackers/scammers/etc as well. I can only hope that they do enforce the rules regarding those people trying to get their IGN changed.

If I got this right, the name change is permanent, and you can only change your name once a month.

Good thing that off-ranked people can't change their name, GG hackers. mush1k.gif
I won't get a name change scroll, I'm happy with my IGN.
lol what's MapleStory?

The number one concern I have here is not being able to find people if they don't want to be found. Everyone should be able to be held accountable for their actions, be it scammers, hackers, exhackers, or even boss run looters.

Then I remembered something. It says that marriages, buddylists, and guild lists will not be affected by the name change. Do you guys think this means that the list will be automatically updated with the correct name? If so, I think we may be able to make use of Blacklist to keep track of those unsavory characters we wish to not lose in the shuffle. Otherwise, we'd have to trust everyone to make their name changes publicly known or trust that people who are buddied/guilded with said unsavory characters to let the rest of the community in on it.

That would still be a major problem with looters though, especially since the looter could just delete their buddy list and leave guild before the server check that changes their name. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if this kills helm selling almost entirely, so this may well be the last week that groups will sell to random players that they don't know.

And this is all coming from someone with an IGN of "AfrobeanMage" for a Priest and, prior to this notice, was very excited about being able to change it.

So the name change doesn't affect your buddy list and or guild list, but it does affect your rankings? I'm really confused can anyone clarify =/ wacko2.gif

Wow, well, I am glad that they are putting limits, so that the haxors can't keep changing their names. xD I guess they figure that their allowing this will put more to do on GM's and stuff. xD
If you see anyone with the username Mooglebunny on any site other than: Youtube, MapleTip, Roliana, AKFG Fan Forums, dslreports, livejournal, Final Gear, or Menewsha, then it's not me! It's an impostor! D:
Bye people. You don't like me. I've always known that. =]

I got a question.

If my name is wvwwvwvww, would I still be eligible for the name change? Maybe they will delete my character...My character isn't off rankings though.
