The fourth batch will be released tomorrow (September 4) at 1pm BST, and will consist of letters N-R.  Announcement here.  And whoop-de-do, they made a link to a category in account management,

 

Edited the title, thanks for mentioning!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be?~ Marianne Williamson

One of the issues associated with usurping display names is that it could create confusion for their previous owners. For example, if Jagex releases the username "Bob" and someone claims it, the new holder of the display name might be mistaken for the original "Bob" by the latter's friends who think he has returned to the game. I'm kind of curious: has anything like this ever happened to anyone who has claimed an inactive display name?

that was the biggest issue for display name changes when the system was rolled out in the beginning.

 

They system really needs to be revamped to show a complete history of someones name.

Well original Bob would show up as a string of numbers in their friendlist.

 

When someone gets added to a fl it tracks that accounts unique id not the explicit name

True, but if a friend of "Bob" were to create a new account, they might still try to add their original name and not realize the change.

 

Oh yeah, and it seems the original display names of Andrew Gower ("Andrew") and Paul Gower ("Paul") have also been usurped. This seems like a bad idea to me as it could allow someone to impersonate Jagex staff.

If a name is not on the hiscores, name change screen says it's not available, but adding to ignore says unknown player...what does that mean? Banned account? Something else?

Decent chance of release?

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.

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.

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.

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

Follow my voice, we'll run far away from here

If only to hide, to escape this life
And live forever, forever in the sun
