Lol, I don't think 'bollocks' can be considered a 'respect(full)' term. But yes, history itself is supposed to be dated. I thought that's exactly what the back story is meant to be: an explanation of how Arkadia was discovered and colonized, told through the adventures of characters. The fact that this process is still ongoing sure makes it interesting. Still, I understood this to the base (story) on which colonists build: not the history of the exploits of (select) avatars. And I haven't stated that I'm against any mention of avatar names in general: as you said, it's been done on other planets. But often at the starting, and predominantly in-game. Depending on how it's done, it certainly can have a positive effect; I've seen evidence of that. But a place where this likely would be less advantageous, would in my opinion, be in the official canon. Like I said, there are other ways of showing appreciation. That are perhaps less subjective. (BTW, the term 'sandbox' for EU seems rather diluted over time: since it doesn't appear to be presented as such anymore. But that's another topic altogether.) About the hornet's nest: Between being too careful in life, and not doing something that's very likely to cause discord, lies a world of difference. (eg. a teacher who refrains from naming his/her favorite/best pupil, is just being practical) But well, it wasn't my intention to have a debate on the front page. Just wanted to post another view: I'd rather speak my mind now, than sitting by idly, and grumble after the fact. (Plus the inability to log in the game causes me to write, while I should be playing.) Basically: I like how this chapter is done, as is. Besides, in the end it's not our decision, not by a long shot. So to each his/her own: if not implemented, great. if implemented, great for the few involved. Respectfully, Yuki.
