So I know I was supposed to gone until tomorrow, but I felt sick and had to come back home. On the way back we went over so many bumps and when we got home I went to say hi to my mom. And then it happened... I threw up. We got home just in time for me to go up to my parents room say hi then run to their bathroom to puke.
So, not to point finger (or wings) at anyone, but it's become quite a common thing for there to be multiple OCs that have the same name. Yes, it's not exactly a HUGE problem, but still, on one likes being told that someone else has already used a certain name -- especially when you put a lot of thought into it. Well, it's actually easer then you might think to figure out if a name has already been used: just use the search option. Right below the icon you click to enter the MB (it says 'MESSAGE BOARD' on it), there's a little box that says search. Whenever you create a new OC, just type the name into the box, wait a few seconds, and see if the name has been mentioned before. Ta da! No more repeated names.
