Oh but a name like "Ostrova of Nanotransen" is fine though

So "X of Y" names are fine, does that mean I can play as "Smith, Human of TGstation"

X of Y can totally work fine as long as you can come up with a good reason to justify it and don't put the server name in IC

Do Clown names need to follow the naming policy? I feel they should! We should not have some SNOWFLAKE running around the halls with names like "No No Word" or "Beat the Clown"! My immersion is ruined!

As I said elsewhere, IRL we see kids everyday with names that only 10 years ago would've have looked outrageously silly. SS13 takes place more than half a millennium from now. Who knows what kind of zany names will people have by then?

my personal opinion is that if your name
1) aligns with lore
2) doesn't make multiple people cringe from reading it
3) has something to do with your gimmick (that is actually creative)
4) is actually a fucking name to some degree
it should be fine

also sidenote dumb post: ostrich of nanotechnology is a stupid fucking name because it's not a name it's a title, you wouldn't call your local security worker "JOHN OF WALMART" would you?

R. Andreas Spitzer or SpitzOS (or a random-named human) ingame. Usually somewhere in engineering, or pAI.

Apparently I was also bouncier than the other babies, because I then ricocheted off of the walls for what my parents recall as "a good five minutes." This of course left me horribly disfigured, as a baby should not suffer that many high velocity blunt impacts. My face was comparable to that of a bowl of mac n cheese, and still is to this day. I was undateable. Unfriendable, even. My face was so incredibly revolting that in a last ditch attempt to look cuter I decided to have genetically modified cat ears and a tail grown on me. However, I also happen to have suffered severe brain damage, which has caused me to become incredibly mentally deficient, and in my haze of stupidity I overlooked the fact that cat ears do not make the face look better. They do not even draw attention from the face. I have since suffered many hardships due to my various and incredibly revolting disabilities. If you asked what the hardest one was, though, I'd tell you it was when I started to get called Nyanaroni An'Cheese.


Glad you understand... This is the deep backstory I'm going for here, Nyanaroni DOES and always has suffered from crippling disabilities...

The entire problem of this policy was enumerated, it's not enforced by the majority of the admin team because (speaking personally) it's a horrible policy and I won't ruin peoples rounds just because they have a funky name. (Excluding those who name themselves hitler or stalin, like come on it's been done, although there’s' RP potential to play someone unfortunately named Hitler).

Only admins I ever see enforcing this are the "/tg/'s RP needs to be higher group" who are bananas god rest their souls

The headadmin team seem to realise this but don't appear to care, or only plan to double down which seems insane to me.

Yeah! Clearly our name policy isn't deep enough!

We should either force random names or have you fill out an ingame birth certificuit to play characters with names, and then INSTANT BAN players who dare step away from the name policy!

Then say that we let the name "Cup Cake" slide as a joke!

Why would the man who says that headmins shouldn't step into policy that is enforced inconsistently say that?

You've literarly said before that headmins shouldn't step into policy because they will inevitably make inconsistently enforced policy.

The point you should have taken away from that discussion is that policy will never be consistently enforced because admins are only human, that is why it's very important to have a robust appeals process (which we do) and that trying to overly heavily handedly prescribe policy (like say the naming policy) will only cause trouble.

In all seriousness, who fucking cares? Honestly, if it sticks out, so what? I get why "Alecifnarlyoistarian Jasmeorlamphromatosis" is not OK. I get why "KILLALLTHEJEWS ALLTHETIME" is not OK. But, why does it matter if someone wants to be called Cup Cake, or Ham Burger? I'm really not trying to be an ass, but we're on a space station where wizards and shit are the norm, it just seems like this is needlessly splitting hairs.

would you accept someone who calls himself PIZZA DOG (all caps included)?

point being, the problem is finding out the exact line between acceptable and unacceptable and the closer we get to it the more likely the thread is to devolve into shitposting
judging by the last few times this kind of thread has popped up usually initiated by people on the naming rules are for cucks side, presumably to leave the status quo unchanged

also I googled the more interesting name in your post on a whim

I don't care if someone names themselves PIZZA DOG. If I have to mention them over the radio, it takes almost zero extra effort to say their name. Side note: What about the more interesting name? Was it because it was mine?

Sure, that's not hard. At what point do you guys define aol instant messenger handle?

It was just a prank bro isn't a very good excuse when it comes to unprovoked nonantag murder, but since this is your first time doing it and you seem to understand the problem instead of a bannu I'm just going to leave you with a warning. Please PLEASE don't do this again in the future, as funny as crackhead broken bottle memes can be. Alrighty? Do you have any input on this?
[20:26:39]ADMIN: PM: [censored]->[censored admin]: Alright, no problem. I have some input. Fuck my boy pussy.
[20:27:06]ADMIN: PM: [censored admin]->[censored]: Okay then. Have fun.

Conchita Wurst is an actual name. It would get you banned on /tg/ if the zero policy folks had it their way.

How about admins use common sense instead of trying to regulate everything because otherwise some dimwit will join the server as TurboNigger69 to make a point?

That's a drag queen stage name.

You're talking about Thomas Neuwirth.

Whatever, it's a first name last name and only the last name is a reference to food. The sexual innuendo is also lost if you don't play an actual bearded female character. Banning it because FOOD NAME as someone is suggesting here is some zero policy bullshit that shouldn't have a place on this server.

And what about Clown Names? Sure, "DICKFARTPISS" shoulden't be allowed, but how about food names for clowns?

Or should clowns just use the randomly generated names?

Well shucks, seems we need a review of naming policy. But hopefully admins actually collaborate and speak with eachother and players to get an easy and defined policy.
Oh wait i tried that once and it was laughed at.
Tell me how good or bad of an Admin I was!
