    what in the world are they thinking with this approve name stuff?

    I don't get it.. they don't approve ANY of my handles. The only real common thread is using 'flynn' in the name. they don't approve any of them.. even bland ones like

    flynnjones

    What the heck is offensive or otherwise against the rules in that??

    VMK is interesting.. but the laggy response time (in games that require response time no less...) and the getting kicked off all the time.. and now this.. annoying!

    Hmm... maybe it's because they think it might be your real name and they don't want that? That is the only thing I can think of.

    the irony is.. my handle has always been based on TRON.. and of all things its the big thing this month!

    I can't seem to get any variation of 'flynn' past them even flynnibus, etc

    Maybe it's too close to "Fin."

    I don't think that's it, my VMK name Is my real name - just not my last name.

    I bet if you called yourself AwesomeAceFlynn or CaptainCutieFlynn or even PrettyPrincessFlynn you'd get approved.

    I don't understand how some names get approved. I was playing Pirates the other night and saw somebody titled "SissyQueen" - and it was a guy.

    Too funny Momzilla!

    My guess is that Flynn has been taken and you need a different version with Flynn in it. I heard VMK got their millionth (sp?) costumer not too long ago.

    That happend with me too. I tried to use Phonedave as my character. I have been Phonedave on line for a long long time (I work in telecomm). I guess they though I was looking for people to phone me. Then I went with SuperDave (al la David Letterman) and that was taken. So KingSuperDave was the next choice.

    Maybe that's why? Copywright? I got the same thing when I tried to make a Muppet.

    I know.. but I meant for him since he is trying "flynn" ____. I know you, you can't be a "mom" but you can be a "mummy!"

    Just when I thought Tron was a forgotten treasure and nobody else remembered it, VMK brings it back to life. I certainly can't complain!


    Kongalush! To all you fellow adventurers out there!
