Lax. I would die if my MAG trophies were gone.

It reminds me of the days when I would spend countless hours on a game with so many people from Japan....

And someone else also took pink_toe so that made me double mad lol

But I now really like my name because the symbol at the end looks like a toe sticking out_

I personally don't care.

I am creative enough that even if a name that I would have liked to have, is taken - that I can simply think up another name I'd like.....

Like my forum name.... Colonel Fenris..... named after Fenris Wolf/Wulf. Old Norse name. Used in the book - The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe before being revised back to Maugrim from the original writing in 1994.
Captain of the White Witch's Secret Police.

I read lots of books, so I have PLENTY of names I can use.

 

You guys should do the same.


Don't get so hung up on ONE name if its taken.... use your brains, and create something else.

They couldn't just remove people who haven't signed in for a certain amount of time. What if their PS3/PS4 died? Not everyone can just go out and get a new one immediately.

 

People who have an account with no trophies and never sign in though. that shows a total lack of interest in using the account and I believe it would be fair to assume they don't need it.

IMO, if they do this it should coincide with implementing the ability to change your PSN name. I would say they need to send emails stating the account is inactive and will be deleted as well as set a time frame for this (maybe as long as a year in advance, sending multiple emails). Pretty much get the message out there where people can find out about it and log in (if only from a web browser) to keep their accounts if they want to keep them.

I think they should deactivate any accounts not used in the last 10 years.
