DPLogin Account Creation rules state:
Quote
We realize there are lots of commonly used names, but older, established members of the community take precedence. In other words, if you've just recently started playing the game and register a name that another player who has been around for 5 years is known by, the name will probably be removed from your account. If it looks to be intentional name theft, further action may be taken, such as account suspension or banishment. If you're having trouble coming up with a unique name that doesn't conflict with existing players, you might want to check out GameSpy's Naminator.

That being said, Reaver has taken it upon himself to register these names, and impersonate these players in-game:

 || Profile for d1rtytaco ||

Player ID:   5117

Names registered:   pancak3s, brigad3, 0lbaid, dystr0, j1gsaw, d1g1, bl1tz, d1rtytaco, tomvendett4, reaver

Former Clans:   8th Wonder, exiled, reneGade, Brutality Gaming, Apoboc Trainees, Apoboc, Insane Junction Training, [Vi]ZioN, Jerks, Speed DemonZ, drifters, NiGHTMaRe, coldFusion, FarmStarz, Eternal Rage, InFamous, UrBaN EmPiRE, StRaTeGiK InSoMnIaKs, Team Redemption

Edit:

Apologies to Reaver, I actually think it's HellHound creating these accounts.

None of those names are unique, and they conflict with existing players. That being said Iced, you are wrong once again.

Yeah, might wanna remove anything t odo with reaver (besides the fact that he's also a victim of name stealing here) from your post, he stopped going by that name months ago. A little players search for the names "hellhound" and "mephine" reveals that that is indeed hellhound.

so what your saying is that you can only add names if they are "unique" enough?

Ya.

This account was made only with purpose to fake name.

It's like he had made Ic3d. Same thing.

We have 10 names available to us, we should be preventing this.

I have y00tz, yootz, y()()tz, y()()+z, etc. registered. 

Those who are not registering alterations and allowing others to 'steal' their names are creating yet another completely unnecessary waste of Paintball 2's sole dedicated developer's time.

But those 10 names arn't there to cover likenesses of our one name, the correct way is to report on it when found so they can be removed and the impersonator dealt with.

Also can someone change the name of this thread...

While the committee and myself don't have the time to police every similar name on the login system, given the nature of the severity of this case, the committee has decided on a 16 day ban.
