Holiday Names
Forum Index - Important - Announcements - Holiday Names
Pages: « 1 2 »
Holiday Names have been enabled to celebrate Halloween! If you want to change your Display Name to something ~spooky~ just go into your profile, look for the Appearance section, and put something in the line called "Display Name", like so:



When you save your profile changes, you'll now have a Holiday Name! This name will automatically disappear when the Holiday Names are turned off. If you're unsure who someone is because they're using a Holiday Name, you can always hover your mouse cursor over their name and the hover text will tell you their normal username.

Normal site rules still apply to choosing a Holiday Name, so keep these things in mind:

1. You may not choose offensive or insulting names.
2. Do not impersonate other users, including banned users, without their explicit permission. This will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis.
3. Your name must be at least 3 characters long, just like with regular usernames.

Lastly, this year we have a new feature: the ability to Disable Holiday Names entirely. If you don't like trying to figure out who's who, there is now an option in the Options section of your Edit Profile page for "Show Display Names". It's enabled by default, but if you uncheck the box there, you will no longer see Holiday Names:



Have fun!
Interesting.

I'm not sure what to put, though. I'll like to see the creative names people have and will come up with.

--------------------
We've got I don't know a good name., I don't know a holiday name., so what's next? I don't know a good password.?

Hack progress:
World 1: Complete!
World 2: Working on it. "Working on it" = about 1/2 a level per month (even though I'm actually making progress now)
World 3: Not done.
World 4: Not done.
World 5: Not done.
World 6: Not done.

Quick note on the rules: this rule list is obviously not an exhaustive one and the moderators reserve the right to ask people to change or remove their holiday name for any reason if they feel they are abusing the privilege. If any new rules are added, they will be announced.
Glad they've finally came back! Now I can finally Chang'e my name once again.

Also, whoever made this The Addams Family-styled banner? (Just in time for the movie, ayt? 👏👏)
We will miss you, Kobe. 😭 #MambaForever

Maybe "I don't know a good holiday name.".

I knew it.

Anyways, I'd like to know how many users will actually disable holiday names.

You cannot have a display name shorter than three characters, sorry. Normal usernames aren't allowed to have names under that length, and so display names can't either. I'd ask you to change your name please.
I love having this every year, Halloween and Christmas.

Fine I'll change it even if tecnically there's many spaces before the dot and it's using the entire character limit

The way I see it is, if the name is annoying to click on, it shouldn't be a name in the first place.

I remember last year someone had nothing but spaces as their name. You can imagine how that went.



Level up your Arash. Trust me, you will thank me later.

This is correct and staff reserve the right to delete a users holiday name if it breaks the rules or causes issues.
so i had picked a random nick and it accepted it, but then it got auto-nuked so each time i would go for it it wouldnt let me. so i thought it just only accepted a certain range of characters, but now i see people with emoji and random symbols in their nicks. is there a specific whitelist or blacklist being applied? what range(s) of unicode are allowed? because its clearly more than what normal nicknames use (so the rule of "follow normal username rules" is out the window)
There! No dot name.


now it's just creepy stuff!

Happy?

I don't know exactly what characters are allowed now, since one of the site upgrades allowed access to emoji characters on the site. That's why you can see a couple users with weird things in them. What were you trying to change your name to?

Too long, sorry. I was going to do it.

Try "I don't know a holiday name.", then.
KLDC 2020 progress: 50%
Updated Rule 2 about impersonations to specifically mention impersonating banned users. It was never specified before, but taking the name of a banned user also requires that banned user's permission. Please do not change your name to a banned username without permission.
my normal name is Halloween enough
