    Or we could not be required to divorce, disband families, leave guilds, etc just to get our original names back.

    It's not like we had to do that for them to change to Name+Server.

    Are you serious? Because of what they did no one could be removed from guilds or join guilds. O_o;;;

    If you knew how relational databases work, then you would know this isn't as simple as it sounds. No doubt they were intending to allow name changes to affect the least amount of data tables as possible so the characters themselves don't become corrupt.

    With an old game like this, I bet the database is even more messy like the code is for the game itself.

    Well this bites for those of us who are stuck at work. -_-

    Just hop on your phone-y phone.
    Are you kidding? In my line of work, phones with cameras is a huge no-no.

    Beware not all workplaces will grant such a permission.

    Just take your break at that time.
    Keep in mind that not all employers allow breaks to be taken whenever we want. Some places will even deduct time out of your break simply for using the restroom. -_-

    Uh, instead of triple-posting, how about editing your post each time you want to say something while your post is the last one in the thread.

    I got the cash shop inventory error despite not having anything there. Trying to log into the game to double-check and logging in is impossible. Will anything ever work according to plan? Find out on the next episode of Dragonball Z.

    Same here. Havent bought any NX for over 3 years so i dont know why i would be getting this error. Logged on to check and i even tried buying some arrows with the small amount of leftovr nx i have to see if that would fix it.

    I thought we weren't going to let people name snipe though? I lost my Giant Emilia because the name was taken and I'm fairly sure the other Emilia's weren;t active anymore. it hurts to lose a character you've had for a decade because someone's fawning over an anime (I assume)

    just realised: If two people both have pet adoption medals, they can trade a pet back and forth and force a name change on the pet. This is gonna cause a heck of a frenzy when Nexon puts the medals on the cash shop again.

    Kind of a hassle, though.

    Especially for the person initiating it, since they have to clear the pet's inventory.

    Since character who has housing can't be name changed yet until the house lease expires, is it possible to pass it to an alt?

    Yeah, the whole point is to avoid name-sniping. So if you think someone took a name that wasn't originally theirs (in your case, the name Emilia), submit a Support Ticket and chances are they'll give priority to the person who had the original name. It's worth a try, at least.
