Registering IGNs
Registering IGNs 06-20-2014, 08:24 AM

I think it would be good to make it manditory to register your platform and IGN when signing up for accounts on this forum. This way if a user is blocked from the forum they cant just come back using a different forum name. Also have an indicator of whether the user is Android or IOS or both(something like the color of their username on the forum like the mods have)

Post This has been suggested before however is impossible to implement.
This is a fan based forum. We don't work for SE nor are linked to SE. So even if we have a compulsory field to enter IGN, there's no way to cross check if it's correct.
Also many users okay both iOS and android. However we allow only one GCF acc per person. So stating version makes no sense.
Once u sign up for GCF, u have iOS, android and Japanese version sub-forum open to you

Post It's not impossible, when I used to play ffxiv 1.0 you could link your account to fan sites. You could get a password on the site that you had to message in game. Granted, I know nothing of the logistics of this, the difficulty of automating the process, etc. but it popped in my head so figured I'd share. Don't care either way, just saying =]

Post I don't think verification would be needed - they would just be little sections under your username, like under your post count or something. It gives people a place to see right away if they can trade with you or not (nicer than seeing it in signatures), and what your IGN is so trades can be done faster.

This forum obviously isn't under Square Enix, so a trust-this-information-at-your-peril disclaimer should be enough.

Post Besides what Viking has covered, there are several users who simply don't want to disclose their IGN for whatever personal reasons.

It would be great if we had an automation system to reference a list of hackers against data on this forum to identify any hackers under new usernames but myBB doesn't allow it and even if it did, it would infringe on user privacy. So the easiest way to do it would have been if square Enix itself implemented it since all game data including the IGN and accs of users is under their control and I don't know if there are any risks involved in attempting such things.

It's an idea that has come up several times in the past. This isn't new. We haven't managed to implement it back then and I don't think we ever can. The best we can do here is maintain a hackers/scammers list. The reputation system is the best shield against these issues. It's not fool proof but it works. The rest is up to users and how they judge whom to trust. Even with the best security, one cannot stop a scammer from scamming if they really really want to coz they will find a way. Maybe not always in regal life but on the internet it's not impossible.

Post It's actually easy to scam with wisdom stones and guardian stones though, you can't really check whether it's I or ii stones... But then you can see the before and after number if stones u have
