one way is get ppl to complain about ur name, which is kinda hard if it cant be offensive.
another way is to have a friend on ur server make a char with ur name.
first u delete ur char, then ur friend makes a char with that name, u call up square and tell them u "accidentally" *cough cough* deleted ur char and just once, they'll revive it, and since ur friend took ur original name, u can make another name for ur same char. it might be risky cause they cant guarantee u get all ur items back.

this way is safer but would take longer. server transfer. if you transfer to a server where your name already exists you have to change your name. so... get another character on the server you are transferring to with your name, get name changed as you transfer, wait the 27 day waiting period and transfer back

actually i believe there is a much safer way, turn off your content ID, then using another content ID use the name of the character you made inactive. Reactivate the original content IID and it will force ya to change names

You'd be surprised. Guy in my ls had a GM call him with a name complaint, supposedly the person who reported him claimed his name was based off a character in a hentai. Suffice to say the GM ended up not forcing a name change beyond just telling the him there was a complaint.

Was funny because the guy had the name for 4 years with no complaints.

that's not offensive. one person who had his name changed was japanese, his name vaguely translates into "streaker dance".

With this new server change, yo can change your name for $50 USD

1) Make a character on a different server with same name.
2) pay $25 to switch to different server.
3) Re-name character.
4) pay another $25 to swicth back to old server.

You forgot to add that you need to wait 90 days between step 3 and 4.

Personally i think it's hard to get your name changed due to complaints. For example my mule is a galka named Spankedmonkey. other mules running around that might offend some come to mind... A mithra named Tightnjuicy, an elvaan called Icrywhenipoop. there was humptaru... let's see... oh yes i remember back when i was a newb i saw a mithra mule named ilikeanal. In general, unless your name is a racial slur of some kind... most people just don't give a damn
