I was thinking maybe you could allow people to change their ruler name or nation name for $50 or something. I think people would do that. 

 

Like instead of UnknownSmurf, I'd change to Papa Smurf or something. 

 

I understand that leaves an issue for forum names and stuff, but it seems as though mods can change forum names if requested, so I don't think it'd be a huge issue.

I have wanted this forever (with appropriate limits), but lol @ 50 dollars for it.

20 dollars sounds more reasonable.

I'd pay 30 for it, and I would want my nation ID to remain the same. Good idea

I would say that the nation ID must remain the same, so that a nation cannot just 'vanish' from the system.

I would pay any amount of money for my ruler name to not be my first name with a 1 after it.

Allow the changing of ruler names as an alternative 'gift' in exchange for a $30 donation, but don't allow the changing of ones nation name or nation ID; that should prevent people 'vanishing' their nation thanks to changing everything.

This could help CN make more money for hosting and such. I don't see why not do this. As long as their nation ID stays the same, as Caladin said.

I like my ruler's name, I would love to slightly change my nation's name slightly though.

 

Perhaps a nation can only buy a change once(Or twice)? But can change either one. Nation ID remains the same reguardless, ofcourse. Perhaps there can be a directory of all nation name changes on a forum post, or even in game to make it easy to find a nation's past names. This would completely eliminate "Vanishing" nations.

I think with some tweaking to the price of it; I dunno why I said $50, just a number I threw out there, we can agree on this? As long as nation ID is the same.

 

I think this would be cool just for RP purposes; like if you have  democratic government you have a new "elected" leader and you change your ruler name or whatever.

What does this do for our log in name if we change our ruler and/or nation name?

 

EDIT: Doesn't matter now, I read the update properly :P

As a quick addendum to this suggestion, would it be possible for there to be a public record of a nations past names? For example, I could become Icicle city, ruled by snowolf-Formerly ruled by icewolf.

The purpose of this is to avoid the inevitable confusion of tracking people by ID number alone, which is easier to make a mistake with, as people change names.

I figure for people who donate to change their name, they probably don't want any traces of the old name to remain. Though, given the downloadable stats, this shouldn't be too hard to keep track of.

Not too sure it is the best idea to have purchasable immunity though-it kind of takes away from the gameplay for people to be able to put down $20 in an attempt to get a get out of jail free card.

Great Idea, 

But what happens if a person does this and it turns out the new name has already been taken?

I'd like to third the proposal of a record of a nation's past nation and ruler names being checkable. Maybe even make it so it can show up in nation/ruler name searches. Since ID number can't be changed you can't clear yourself with this anyway (and I'm pretty sure letting people do that wasn't the intent of the change- I get the impression it was intended to let people who actually didn't like their ruler or nation names to change them.

 

This could be useful even for friendly purposes; alliances who keep lists of members or specific groups of members (trade circles or the like) by nation/ruler name and don't save ID numbers, or people looking for old friends' nations (or current friend's nations, even) and not being able to find them. Come to think of it- if you didn't know someone outside of game and didn't have their nation ID saved anywhere, that could actually be a problem if someone changed both ruler and nation name and then realized they had no way of verifying who they were. Seems unlikely to be too important though (unless there are alliances that don't have any forums at all or something), but worth keeping a record regardless.

I think the staff checks before they do the name change.
