Username (vs) ID Number

All players have both an exclusive Username and an account ID Number. During Novilar gameplay, you will be knowing and referring to other players primarily by their Username. 

Q: Can I change my Username?
A: Once an account has "claimed" a username, it cannot generally be changed unless the username goes against our TOS and demands a change by staff. Other legitimate username change requests will be handled by staff on a case-by-case basis. Please submit a Modbox ticket or contact us via Email if you would like your username changed.

Q: When should I use a username, and when should I use an ID number? 
A: You can ping a user in the Forums via their ID number. Simply type @# (for example, @42) and that user will be alerted to your mention. Once submitted onto the forum, the number will automatically change to their username.
