NAME CHANGES, NAMECHANGES


After much deliberation among MUME Management on the subject of name changes, Manwë has written a policy for them. This means that if you want a name change, check out this list, and don't ask if you shouldn't be asking!

Name changes will be granted (or forced) under these conditions:

  1. A ridiculous name, completely out of context with MUME (e.g.., Spiderman, LukeSkywalker, Saturn:

    • Force name change sooner or later
      • Level 25 or under: Free
      • Level 26 or above: 2 levels
  2. An offensive name (Yousuck, Covidrules, f***, etc.):

    • Obvious: Nuke the player, even at level 100.
    • Subtle (happens to be offensive in some local language, or when read backwards on moonless nights, or…)
      • Level 25 or under: Forced name change, 1 level.
      • Level 26 or above: Forced name change, 3 levels.
    • Note, this does not mean we will be after everyone to change all of your potentially offensive names now.
  3. A not-really-in-context name:

    • Never force the name change.
      • Level 10 or under: Free.
      • Level 11: 1 level.
      • Level 12 to 25: 2 levels.
      • Level 26 or above: No way.
  4. At the player's request and subject to Valar approval:

    • A minor name change, at any level, once(!) per character:
      • A single phoneme for a single phoneme: 1 level.
      • Up to two phonemes for up to two phonemes: 3 levels.
  5. A (newly immorted) Maia who wants to look cooler:

    • No way.
These are the rules that Management will be following when it comes to changing names, so don't bother asking 5 different V+ in hopes of a different verdict.
