    Hey everyone!

    Today I'm here creating a poll asking you all if you'd like to see the removal of /nick from the server.
    I personally think that /nick has more cons rather than pros-- what do you think?

    As a staff member (and player, if you have ever submitted a report), when a player has a nickname and they need to be punished, we have to hover over their name in order to see their IGN, and most of the time, you can't see the chat message behind the big tag.

    EDIT:
    I'm also realizing more cons to having nicknames,
    players can impersonate staff, other players, etc,
    and can also bypass the chat filter with it.


    So what do you think? Remove /nick, or leave it?

    I was asked to hover over someone else's IGN, even when the person didn't have a nickname I was still asked to hover over an IGN. Though it's a bit annoying everytime I see a nick I need to type /realname to find out who they are. People may say they want to be creative with their nicks, why not be creative with your IGN?

    I'd say keep them. They are fun to the server and I love messing with friends with it. I get that it can be annoying but people will just name other stuff inappropriate names then item them in chat.

    If they will item stuff with inappropriate names then they will just get punished accordingly. That could be avoided very easily.

    I know, is that not the problem with the nicknames, or am I reading this wrong?

    If this is just about inconvenience then I don't think they should be removed. I get typing /realname can take a whole 5 seconds if you are a slow typer, but I love the ability to nick myself fun names.

    My first impression was the problem with nicknames were that they were naming themselves something inappropriate, but now I see they are just finding it a problem with convenience

    Nicks are one of the few ways to communicate when you are muted

    More annoying than fun imo. But if we get rid of them I would like to see another donator perk replace them.
