    I just got done playing a game with like 5 aliases on all at the same time, and I thought, wouldn't it be funny if we had a day when everyone logged on as an alias? It'd be like a masquerade ball with guns!

    In the Quake community I'm hanging around with, we used to do this for halloween. All get in in "costume" for halloween... The rule was to have a different alias then usual and a different player model then usual.

    That was fun, trying to guess who was who... but, of course, there was a lot of participant... something like 100+ people pass by during the evening.

    This used to happen fairly often back in the 2.86+RA days. Usually took about 5 minutes to figure out who was who just by how the played.

    Whats the big deal? One of those aliases was me, and you were very rude. You really should think before you speak, you remind me of how I used to be. Nothing wrong with using an alias.

    On a different (but similar note), we did have a day where everyone logged in with there real first names. It was pretty cool.

    It sucks, but sometimes I have to use an alias. Otherwise, I have people like Losus trying to shoot me with 203's at close range.

    P.S. My alias was P. Diddle

    The hell you talking about, NT?

    But yeah, Geo, something like what you were talking about. That'd be awesome.

    Unless you live where I do. In which case you post a couple fliers around town saying "HEY LETS HAVE ANOTHER HALLOWEEN NEXT WEEKEND" and everyone in the entire area would do it. I love Ashland.

    I was often using aliases, especially with the Weed guys. Once I had (typed in) the exactly same alias (server bug, don't know?) as another guy and I kept him "insulting" (not really) why he stole my nick ... ;)

    Yurch wins the thread.

    We did smething like this for Halloween in GLQuake awhile back. Every regular (about 8 of us) at the 124.- server got to upload a playermodel. I was Sub-Zero. I also remember another guy was a Harlem Globetrotter.

    Hee hee too bad we can't do custom player models in INF... this could be so childishly fun...

    Well I guess for people like me who never wear anything but a black balaclava and cap I could make an alias loadout wearing... I dunno, a HELMET! *gasp*

    Voice changes, face changes, an unusual loadout, new name... hm...

    When should we do this? A monthly thing, weekly, biweekly, annually, etc? I think once a month would be fun. It's not like you have to go out and make a costume. Hell, re-use aliases if you want.
