How nation name change could work

Postby The Independent Frontier » Sun Feb 10, 2019 5:41 pm

Since the main hurdle in changing nation names seems to be that each nation's name works as an ID/Username, what if the current ID/Username remained the same and was not changeable, but the visible name in the nation's page could be edited as long as it is available?
I'm sure that this has been thought of before and there's probably an issue with doing this, but I really want to change my nation's name.

It's been brought up. The problem with the "display name" idea, if I remember correctly, is the possibility of impersonating another nation. Trying to regulate display names to prevent that is probably not a headache that the mods want.

If you want a different name, make a new nation.
Romans 1:18-2:29, Ephesians 2:1-10
But God’s angry displeasure erupts as acts of human mistrust and wrongdoing and lying accumulate, as people try to put a shroud over truth. But the basic reality of God is plain enough. Open your eyes and there it is! | Those people are on a dark spiral downward. But if you think that leaves you on the high ground where you can point your finger at others, think again. Every time you criticize someone, you condemn yourself. | It’s a wonder God didn’t lose His temper and do away with the whole lot of us. Instead, immense in mercy and with an incredible love, He embraced us. He took our sin-dead lives and made us alive in Christ. He did all this on His own, with no help from us!

You then lose all of your progress on your previous nation...

Well it's either the name or your stats. Factbooks can be copied
