I'm wondering if anyone has seen anything on what sort of naming policy will be in place in the game? I've noticed some names for people who joined the forums at various points that I wouldn't be exactly excited to see in-game, and so I wondered what sort of limits might be in place.

Obviously, vulgar names will probably be reportable, but i'm also wondering if copyrighted names and those from other popular games/works will be disallowed, as well as what other things might not be allowed.

I imagine that the naming policy will follow the traditional restrictions in gaming. No Aragorns, Luke Skywalkers, etc. Play on names, however, is likely allowed; ala Aragrond, Puke Groundrunner, Darth Wanker, etc. Further restrictions based on lewd or blatant cursing is likely to also be removed.

My question is whether my name will be considered unlawful when I own the copyright to it. :P

There really shouldn't be any surprises to the naming policy. Good taste is hard to enforce, so don't be surprised to find something you aren't fond of.

I've been gaming for a long time and there's always going to be something less desireable that slips in under the radar. I was just wondering if there was a general policy laid out yet. I figured popular characters would be off-limits, but they aren't always.
