I'm planning to remove USGN accounts and to use US.de accounts for everything (this website and in-game/usgn) in future.

This would make many things much easier and simply better. There would be no more threads from users who created the wrong account for what they wanted to do and who are confused because of the strange account situation.

I actually only introduced separated accounts because both systems (us and usgn) were on different servers at the beginning. however now they share the same server and the old solution is simply bad and a pain in the a**.

The only downside of this plan would be that I would have to delete the USGN accounts including the friend relations and the server ranks.

What do you think about this idea? Please vote / comment!

That's really good news.
Well, maybe this could make small confusion for people who haven't read this.
Moreover, it makes sense now & there wont be stupid questions like "I can't log in with us.de account"

Yes, I agree with this idea.

I'm not really sure is this better or worse. Some people who are confused about current situation will (maybe) be even more confused.
But I think it will be better, many confusions will be solved with a simple text line: "UnrealSoftware account for everything."

I would just want to know if you have to shut down U.S.G.N while you are creating and testing new system?

So there is really no way you can somehow transfer accounts, or make a script which can do it for you?

@TheKilledDeath: you keep your unrealsoftware.de ID and it will also be your USGN ID then, yes.

@LinuxGuy: I though about how to do it with losing less information. that's why I added the USGN page in the profile where you can connect your existing accounts.
I'll be able to transfer friend relations in ALL cases where BOTH(!) users of a relation have connected their unrealsoftware.de account with their usgn.de account.

Of course I would announce this (as news and usgn in-game message) several weeks before I switch the systems.

USGN downtimes should be one day in worst case but could also be as short as 30 minutes if everything works directly.

@Schinken:
No, they would still work as before. Only difference: The IDs change because then it would be your unrealsoftware.de ID and not your usgn.de ID anymore. So hardcoded IDs in scripts should be changed then to fit the unrealsoftware.de IDs.

I agree with the idea. I see how this would relieve some confusion, but will it not start more confusion? I mean people who rarely visit the forum will not understand. Even if you do update them through the game. Which will create more threads about "My USGN ID is invalid!?" though I did vote Yes.

So we will use www.unrealsoftware.de for friends? Or will we just use the USGN?

Deleted? (Or should I say combined?) Or redirected to US.de?

Yah everything will then be at unrealsoftware.de. the login+register buttons at usgn.de will lead you to the unrealsoftware login+register sites (probably with an additional info about what's going on)

I'll also spam SEVERAL in-game messages to make sure that most people will get it... lol. of course there will still be some people who miss the info but that's better than having two different accounts for years with corresponding confusion for years.

usgn.de will still explain what the usgn is and how it works and it will still be a source for serverlists in your browser. remember: the usgn will still be there but you will use it with unrealsoftware.de accounts.

Are we going to be able to change usernames just for friends / serverlists? Or the old ones (if you transfer accounts) are going to be added?

If somebody gets banned here, does his/her USGN-ID also gets banned?
I hope not. I bet that there are many banned people who still would like to play on USGN-Only servers.

@LinuxGuy: No, one and the same name everywhere. However I'll PROBABLY add a change-name feature so you can change your name maybe once every 3 months (to avoid name change spam). seems to be fair in my eyes. the profile will then also show the previous names of a user.

@Heavy: you are funny. people who want to play on usgn only servers simply shouldn't violate the rules! can't be that hard. yeah, a ban will ban you everywhere of course.

And if...

1. ...someone is banned from US.de and still has an USGN.de account (or vice-versa)?
2. ...some person doesn't like his/her username on US.de and/or USGN.de?
Code:
1
2
3
4
5
[i]if[/i] [b]and[/b], then [u]simple[/u]: get a new username for both ([i]if[/i] possible)
[i]if[/i] [b]or[/b], then... [i][u]example[/u][/i]: "I don't like my USGN.de username but like my US.de name, I think I can stick with my US.de username then.", but [i]if[/i] someone thinks like: "Oh no! I love my USGN.de username, but hate my crappy US.de username... what am I going to do!? I can't stick with this crappy username anymore!".

[b]//[/b]This sounds (and is meant to be) like a programming/scripting language. Just to "spice things up".
[b]//[/b]The [b]2.[/b] question is kinda confusing, so don't botter squeezing your brainz to answer it. If you can easily answer it, fine, if you have to "squeeze yo' brainz", don't bother.

0. you are insane

1. usgn accounts will be completely deleted. it's impossible to "still have an USGN.de account". it also answers the vice versa. there is only one account. so it's not possible to have one banned and the other one not.
people with banned usgn account are lucky though. they can just register at us.de / use their existing us.de account in-game.

2. I'll probably introduce a rename function as already stated. read above posts for details.
