    Default Orange Names?

    Well, I was just in-game with my best friend and was completely baffled by my orange name when I logged on...I was in Blackspore, so I noticed the other people there also had orange names, but some still had light blue. I thought it was just a color malfunction on my screen, but when my friend logged on, she told me her name was orange, too! Does anyone know why some people have orange names while others still have light blue names?

    It means that they are a member.

    Ohh, thank you! Does anyone know if there's any way to get the light blue back besides losing the membership? I really prefer light blue...

    I'm pretty sure losing membership is the only way. Either that or there might be something in settings letting you change it...

    Ahem - There are NO orange names, to end all confusion. There is the light green names, for non-members; pink names, for refs/admins; and GOLD names; for members - which is what you probably got confused.

    Yes, the only way to convert back to the old names is to loose your membership. They added it so you can tell members from non-members. So I highly doubt they will allow you to turn it off.

    I don't think you had to make a big deal of it being gold not orange. As long as people understand what was meant by orange names, which they did, then there is no need to point out what color the names are.

    Here is a quick reflex answer: "Send a ticket." (:

    I don't like the color-coded names. IMHO, it is a form of discrimination, because a player can "discriminate" between a member from a non-member. We already have the VIP ranking, is it really necessary to have color-coded names in the game?

    I agree with Brett, I don't like these gold names.

    It probably makes the non-members feel...Even slightly...Ashamed? Of not having membership. SOE really know how to pile on the pressure :/

    yeah and my favourite colour is light blue! I was gonna make my best friend a rare account for a christmas present so she doesn't get called a newb...but she might get teased about being a non-member. :/ sony...come on pick yourself up...true discrimination this is.

    Yeah... it's not very fair. $OE's method is simple: Try to get as many people to buy membership as they can using any method they can. Unfortunately.
