I’m really annoyed at CCP and whichever person came up with the transfer of identities and names into the ‘new’ forum.
In this ‘new’ forum, you have changed my name so that “People can mention you as @Mu_ad_Diib”. I am incredibly annoyed about this change, and even more so because there was no consultation prior to it happening.
You’ve changed how my name gets displayed and how other users can refer to me and you didn’t even have the decency to ask me first I’m really upset my this
To be clear my character name has always been Mu’ad Diib and the reasons for the name are very personal and very important to me (which is why I’m so annoyed) and there are specific reasons (again which I feel are very important) for it being written this way
The whole point of the apostrophe being there is to be indicative of the Arabic linguistic pronunciation of certain syllable groups and how there are slight pauses in pronunciation. The apostrophe is there because I lived in the middle east and I know something about Arabic. It’s also there because it’s a subtle nod to the Arabic influences within Fremen culture in the book ‘Dune’.
Having just checked my profile, there is no way for me to change this and I want to know what I can do about it.
Had you asked me what I wanted, which I’m sure is low down on your priorities, I would have said that if your system can’t recognise apostrophes then leave it out and give me Muad_Diib I don’t like this particularly but it’s way better than a ridiculous underscore being in place of a diacritically placed apostrophe.
