Assuming it's A-R, no chance of release now I would say...if T-Z, it might have a chance.  It could be a banned name I suppose.

 

 

 

Randomly decided to check yesterday and got "Dark Dude" at last. (Previous without the Space)


Remember to maintain a membership for a month twice a year for the following years. Seems to be enough to prevent you from getting your name taken from you, if their current criteria is anything to go by. Grats on getting Dark Dude, Mike.

 

Well, if you remember to do that, might as well just log in instead :).  In fact, I think if you buy membership but fail to log in for two years it may be stripped from you, unless they changed something.

Ya, I log in and don't know who some people are, since I can only see their last RSN. If they've changed it more than once, I have no way of knowing right off.

My account was inactive for almost four years, I'm glad I came back when I did. Even though my name probably isn't anything spectacular I would have been devastated if someone had robbed it from me!

I'm currently playing at the moment so shouldn't be a problem. RuneScape is pretty much the only thing I still use this name for (along with places that don't allow me to change name) so wasn't too fussed about getting it but it's nice all the same.

I don't really care much for name releases anymore, the name I wanted was released back in the second batch (and it sounds like it was unpopular enough of a name that it was still free yesterday when I changed to it.)

And then I'll end up remembering a cool name from one of the later batches and going like "awww, somebody took it" like 2 months later.

Apparently whoever owns 'urza' logged in recently from a jmods response. What a load of crap...

Apparently 'Wight' does not start with a W, X, Y, Z, or number, so I got 'Estoc', the greatest of the thrusting swords.

Or it just wasn't released, for one of various reasons.

Did they say anything about releasing names in the future (for example releasing names of inactive accounts that weren't inactive long enough for these batches)?

They did say they would be removing names on accounts that have not logged in for 6 months, or 2 years if the account has never been a member.  My guess is that they will save them up and do another event like this in 6 months, a year, whenever.

I was under the impression the idea was now that the freeing up of names would be an automated system that keeps on rolling at all times and that this 'event' was just the initial release to deal with the massive number of names they were unleashing in one go.
