There has been opened up a thread to discuss the difficulty of obtaining a name. It is in an attempt to get it smoother for the next time and Jagex asked for feedback regarding the issue.
My personal idea:
I was more thinking of a rolling requirement. This entails a name change requirement starting at Maxed (2595) and gets lower every 15-30 minutes. This lowering would be in batches of 100 levels then 200 levels then 300 levels etc. So after one hour everyone from 2k and up can request a name change.
In addition to this there could be an X month membership required. Preferably at least 2 months.
If you want to further restrict it, you could do the above method on 2 different account ages. From 1 year on the first start at T and when T=1 hour, those who created their accounts in less then 1 year, but have maxed stats could start requesting name changes. After 15 mins those who are 2500+, etc...
This latter could make it way to strict tho, but sometimes strict measurements are needed.
Lol, just lol.
I can't tell if your post is meant to troll or not.
Or maybe you just through it was a good idea to ask for preferential treatment because you've had a comp cape for a whopping 3 months? Ridiculous, and utterly selfish.
Honestly, if you want to make it fair, it should be first come first serve. If the names are hoarded, too bad you were too slow.
Announce the date on which the names will be free'd. Few days before said date, release the name.
There's going to be chaos on the servers anyway, at least this way no one is given special treatment.
Yeah, the thing is, for something to be preferential treatment or favoritism, the criteria being judged has to be subjective. A player's total level is a firmly objective criterion, so its not preferential treatment or favoritism in any way, shape, or form. You earn levels, you earn privileges. She's not [bleep]ing suggesting that they give out names to people with [bleep]ing blonde hair first or something. God damn it.
