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.


Ah, well then that would be more logical.

"Fight for what you believe in, and believe in what you're fighting for." Can games be art?

Certain names weren't released because the accounts that own said names are banned. It's why I couldn't get "Matt", as he was banned for RWTing apparently... :(

Most banned names have really bad reputations though. You'd get a lot of shit if you changed your name to Matt.

Any idea when the new names will be available to pick with newly created accounts?

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!

The name of my first account was taken in a previous sweep after being inactive for only 2-3 years  :(




Is there any way to view the names released after R?  The news updates stopped linking to the spreadsheets after that release (and the forum stopped updating after M).
