Changes to the EVE Naming Policy
We have made some small edits to our “EVE Online User and Character Name Policy” for the purpose of clarifying a few things and also to establish the fact that the policy includes all player named entities, not just character names.
First, we changed the name of the policy from “EVE Online User and Character Name Policy” to “EVE Online Naming Policy” in order to better fit the actual purpose it serves. Then, we changed the heading of section 2. from “CHARACTER NAMES” to “IN-GAME NAMES” so that it is made clear that the policy covers much more than just the names of characters. As further clarification of this, section 2. b. has been expanded to say:
“In-game names include, but are not limited to: Character names, corporation names, alliance names and any other player-nameable item or entity within the game world.”
Also, we have added section 2.c. which states:
“c. No player may use the character name of another player to impersonate or falsely represent his or her identity. Player created corporation and alliance names also fall under this policy, as does any other in-game entity named by players”
This is to strenghten the impersonation part of the policy and to clear up any misunderstanding there may have existed regarding such matters. Finally, we have put in “support ticket“ to replace the word “petition” which is being gradually phased out of our system.

That‘s all folks.
