    Default Do you want to be able to give yourself a nickname?

    As you may or may not have noticed, you are no longer able to do this in FM10.

    I've got no idea why, it could have stopped working or it could have just been deemed pointless.

    But I know I used it when changing my name on FM to arsenal_2111 for screenshots, and I've seen some people using it to put 'Sir' at the start of their names.

    Would you like the ability to do this again in future versions?

    Not particularly.

    Easy enough to do it using the first and last names.

    I went into my first demo game aiming to use this feature but I couldn't find. Disappointing. I wanted to be realistic so I thought, I'll impersonate Leonardo on the AC Milan bench, but I couldn't name my manager just "Leonardo" and couldn't use a nickname, so I had to put de Araujo as a name

    Well, I think that this option is redundant. I NEVER use nicknames in my games!

    I hadn't noticed this had gone, I used it all the time to name myself 'dafuge'.

    Is it now possible to enter just one name when creating a new manager?

    It's a nice option for those wanting to post screenies but don't want to have their real name in it.
    Therefore I support the return of it.

    I wanted to be Teddy Sheringham, and give him his real name with Teddy Sheringham as his nickname as per real life. Why was this taken out SI?

    Its not all that difficult to use an image editing program to remove your name before posting screenies. Like Colorado and Blanchflower1 I too never used this feature so am not disapointed that its been removed.

    What!!! Nicknames are gone. I'm disappointed the nickname is gone. I use it on my staff all the time to help sort the emails. Maybe they can put it back in a patch.

    It's still in for players and staff, but not for human managers.

    I really don't understand why we can't have a nickname anymore in the game... Having that possibility changes nothing for those who doesn't want to use it, but that changes everything for those who use this feature.

    Please at SI, make this feature possible again for human managers... :'-(

    I couldn't care less about being able to give myself a nick. Never actually understood what it might be useful for anyway to do that to anyone.
    If I want to nick myself then I do it when creating the manager.

    I use nicknames to shorten the player's name.

    For example:

    I will change Robin van Persie to 'van Persie' or Didier Drogba to 'Drogba'. To me, it looks better, it's more practical, and there's something about just one name.

    I don't pay much attention to user nick name, but I am ALWAYS on this side: Extra option is never bad. He who wants to use it will enjoy it, he who doesn't want to use it, doesn't have to and it makes no relevance.

    It allowed us to give ourselves a single name, like 'Pele' or 'dafuge'.

    I think it is a very important feature because it is nice to be able to show a screen shot without having to give vital information about one-self. Not everyone wants to become famous. It should be made available again regardless...

    But you could argue that just by signing on here you can be giving away just as much vital information as you would if you put up a screenshot with your real name? If it bothers people that much then surely uploading their screenshot into paint or something and covering your name like that would be worthwile?

    As i say, im not fussed either way tbh as its something ive never used. Im just tryin to get some debate going about the pro's/cons of it

    You can enter in your desired nickname as your first name and a random surname and tick the Use First Name box....

    That just reverses the name, so it would appear as 'Smith John'.

    Definitely want this back, why the heck did SI remove that?
    In what way did remove this feature add any benefit to the game?

    I play the game as my real name, but when I need to post screenshots, I must set a nickname.
    This feature is quite an useful feature, and one I cannot understand why they removed.

    Hopefully they'll un-remove it for the patch!

    It is quite common for Brazilians though. The nickname function was also the only way you could enter a single name like 'Zico' rather than a first and surname.

    I didn't realise this and I'm actually very disappointed. :mad:

    As others have said, this made it really easy to change your name, especially for uploading screenshots. I used to change my real name to 'Crouchaldinho' or 'Crouchy' for this purpose.

    It's only a small thing admittedly but it is something I would definitely like to see back in the game asap.

    Maybe you should make this into a poll Jammy? See how many others want it back as an option.

    Same here, I'm pretty annoyed that this has been removed as I always used it.

    Looks like I may have to go back to the old 'da fuge' name

    I want nicknames back. Changing your nickname and posting screenies is ten times faster and easier than using a image changing programmer. Why can't you put a nickname, I know it's not used very often, but surely it isn't extra waste of space just to add that small feature for some who wants it? I agree with the following two quotes.

    What if you wanted to create a Brazilian manager named like Zico?

    I should add that I would be quite happy to lose the nickname function if we were able to enter a single name in the beginning for our manager.

    Current results of the poll suggest it is actually pretty pointless as the majority (at this moment i may add) aren't bothered/never used it!

    So you're basing your conclusion on 19 people saying something? I don't know if you realised, but there are a good few more than that who play Football Manager.

    And, even if it turns out that most people don't mind if it's put back in, surely it would be better to have it in and please those who want it? Other people don't have to use it if they don't want to.

    How does that make it pointless?

    Pointless would be if absolutely nobody used it.

    Clearly it was a useful feature for some of us who posted up screenshots and wanted to use our forum names in those instances. Clearly it isn't 'pointless' as I have just described how it has a point!

    I have to laugh at the people who have voted for the 'No - I don't want this feature to be available' option.

    Why would you specifically not want this to be available?

    Unless, of course, being able to give yourself a nickname in the game really annoys you for some bizarre reason!

    So the minority have to be pandered to then? Like i have said earlier in the thread (over 2 days ago in fact), it actually doesnt bother me if it is or isnt in the game as i never have/never will use it. Im just going off what the poll is suggesting most were saying at that particular time (pay attention jammy).

    Of course not, but when there is a third of people '(at this moment i may add)' who want it reintroduced, and no obvious reason for people hating the option of it, it seems a bit strange that it would be taken out.

    If you can give two good reasons why this option should have been taken out, assuming there were no technical problems with it, then I'll happily give in.

    By the way, the 'minority' at the time of writing is around 30%, which although totally meaningless really, is actually quite a large proportion of the voters.

    I should also add that my CAMRAD thread was set up for a minority taste, and you were pretty quick to jump on that bandwagon.

    I can't understand why you're making a fuss about something you've just said you don't even use? How can it possibly have any significance to you?

    I like you baker.simon. You're a funny man, although I'm not sure if it is intentional or not. ;)

    Kind regards,

    Dont get me wrong, as i have said ive never used use the option, and as such is doesnt really bother me if it is there or not personally. I guess it just a matter of opinion really, some like it, some dont, most arent fussed but surely there must be a reason its been removed? I mean, as you say crouchy, it is possibly one of the smallest little features in the game so i cant see SI having to take it out to sort something else out if you know what i mean? Perhaps after all this there may be a reasonable explanation as to why its been left out? Although i cant think of one, but im also not a programmer or anything

    Oh and btw, i am intentionally funny ;) My mum says so, she also says im pretty and special

    By the way, to DanGLiverpool, Djemba-djemba, foggy21, OugaBagga, Ramos, Sparky_07 and USbzh, why do you not want this option in the game?

    How has it 'backed you up'?

    I had no idea that was how a poll works. Apparently, everybody who votes is wrong unless they vote with the majority. And all of the other options that come in second or third, well, they're just pointless.

    Where do people like you come from?

    For something to be pointless, it must be senseless and have no meaning. The nickname option has a clear objective, which it achieves, and many of us feel that it is a purpose which is worthwhile and useful. Therefore, by definition, it cannot be pointless because it has a point!

    If there is one thing I cannot stand on this forum, it is idiots coming in and posting up ridiculous nonsense masquerading as the truth. :mad: Is it just that they cannot read and understand other points of view? I just don't get it but it drives me crazy and it happens all too often. At least the ignore button is only a couple of clicks away.

    Hrm, that's annoying. Seems like a pretty harmless feature to take out. I'm not very keen on going back to naming my manager "Sc ab" seeing how neither name makes much sense to be referred to as. I'm not sure exactly what to use now as giving my real name would be way too inconvenient; I seriously can't be bothered to manually edit every single screenshot I'll post daily in dafuge's challenge and elsewhere. I ended up with hundreds of them last year...

    Not ignoring you baker.simon, fear not.

    Scab - you make a good point. I expect people who undertake the challenges in the CSE forum, which usually require screenshots to be made, will be most inconvenienced by this.

    How can people NOT want this feature? What harm is it doing?

    Anyways, voted yes (forgot to vote last time!)

    Therefore I support the return of it.
    Agreed

    Other than that I've never really seen a use for it.

    Yes, I used it to change my name for screenies, usually when my name is "Mister [insert expletive]"

    I'd still like to hear from one of DanGLiverpool, Djemba-djemba, foggy21, grep, keeper tom, nev147, Nickos, OugaBagga, projoe, Ramos, Sparky_07, Stampler, SWaRFeGa or USbzh, the people who don't want this option in the game.

    If any of them could explain, and in all seriousness I am interested, I would be very pleased to read

    Same, I can understand not caring, but to actually not want it? I cannot comprehend.

    Very disappointed that this feature was removed. Used it in all my games.

    If this was a feature then they should keep it as there is no harm in it. I never noticed it or would be bothered with it now. However i am still peethed that you cant be a manager unless you are 30 or 35 orw/e it is. Why give me the option of putting 1985 in my birth year if it then disregards it? Also there is nothing saying a 25 year old couldnt be a football manager so why not allow this? You have allowed women to be in the game so why not younger ages? as i think the latter is far more likely to happen in real life.

    Don't see why it was removed really. Useful for posting screenshots.
