IRL….huh? You aint an belf? *sigh*

Disappointing aint it….I am not an elf…which one do you think I iz? (hint: far right, i iz pimpin)

Sidenote: if you have the change defintely visit Japan. I had a blast…would so go again every year if I could.

Ari had a very interesting post on identiy and names. How we ID people with their names or even their characters is a very interesting notion.

Names and characters identify an individual in ways that can be positive or even negative. Take a name like XxxVegetaxxX. I automatically think….watch out noobbbbbbb alllleerrrttt…will prob spam chat channels, with intelligent l337 speak.

Lets take a example from the guild, Dozzer, Tauren – warrior, just from appearance and name.. Dozzer sounds ilke a tough guy name. Prot spec – like to get in the thick of things. Tauren – dont mess with me, i will warstomp you. Character fits with name. A+

IDing people purely based on names is bad….i know the old phrase is dont judge a book by its cover….however, in WoW…its way to easy to throw that phrase out the window and beat it with a dull spork.

My rules for dealing with unknowns in WoW. (/ignore)

1.) Any XXX or etc in the name….prob good chance going to be a moron.
2.) Any variation of name involving the male or the female anatomy….once again prob you found a moron.
3.) Named after a porn star…..see above.
4.) Has a normal name but spams chat with anal jokes etc…..you get the drill.
5.) Has long extended conversations with other moron in chat…..
6.) Does not know how to type out coherent sentences……
7.) Named after Cloud, Sephoroth, or any Final Fantasy character…..
8.) Any Dragonball, Bleach or Naruto name….

    Japan – one of two places I would be willing to get a passport to go visit.In my previous MMO, I would have gotten 2 strikes against me for my name. I was xxStrifexx. A lot of people thought it was a Final Fantasy reference, which it wasn't; I didn't know about the character name similarity until after the fact. It was just part of a naming schema I wanted to use. The "xx" came about because some jerk already had one of the other names in the set and I really wanted my sorceress to be named Scorn. So I ended up with xxStrifexx, xxScornxx, xxFuryxx, etc.

    Yup. japan is worth the work for a passport….the flight time kinda sucks though. Yeah bad Ari….XXXX big nonono. lol well at least to me…every person i have met in MMOs with a name like that…not a pleaseant experience, but to every rule there is an exception. Pic from above is taken from a Buddhist area in kamakura town. Lots of cool statues, shrines and temples.
