    Clan Member Nickname

    It would be nice if clan leader and co leader can change nickname of clanmates. Sometime, their name are too weird to call and too hard to pronounce. So clan leader and co leader can change their nickname to a nickname that they would like themselves to get call by everyone. Once a nickname changed, clan leader and co can't change their nickname to another one in two months.

    I find it easier to kick people with unpronounceable/untypeable names and tell them they can come back if they change their name to something normal.

    It would be great if accounts could be given nicknames.

    It would be great if accounts could have short descriptions, which could include a nickname field, which could be optionally shown in the chat. Even just a nickname would be good.

    I would not give this power to the clan leadership, but to the player. Their nickname should surely be consistent from clan to clan, especially across clan families.

    My clan new member request to join acceptance policy includes requiring them to have a proper pronounceable name. No Chinese names (ever again). Nothing rude. Nothing silly that doesn't work in a sentence. No accounts named after CoC troops.

    Gee. Cant imagine that this could be abused. Do you allow others in real life to decide what you will be called? I dont think this is a good idea.

    I recall moments when I would be tempted to assign nicknames:
    • The idiot
    • The buncher
    • Barch spammer
    • Can't read
    • random kid

    With that example I think this feature can be used as a dunce cap....
    "VICTORY GOES TO THE BRAVE OF HEART.AND TO JACKO.WAIT,THAT'S ME!!!"

    Not actually me,though.That would be so cool....so cool.
    Check the out wiki for clearing some common doubts,trust me it'll help.

    Would this not just be a free name change?

    If the person whoís name gets changed actually likes, agrees to or has chosen the new name then yes it would.

    However itís pretty safe to say that this wonít ever happen for reasons posted below so we can let this thread sleep.

    The reasons above are already compelling enough as to why this wonít happen but thereís a few others too.
    Some people get temporarily banned and have their name changed by player support for being inappropriate. And if they give people the power to do this it will be used and abused so no this should never ever happen.

    Thank you! ClashOfHolmes for an awesome sig!

    Just call me K, my name is too difficult to spell.
