    Well, name is your character's name, handle is your user's account name, by writing it in said format you can receive invites and messages.
    For some things like mails the account handle (@Timelord_Victorious) is enough. Fleet invites are character specific and require the character's name.

    Not quite. The login name is not the same as user name. Please don't post your log in name anywhere. There have been cases of account hacking and giving people half the log in data is a serious security risk.

    I'm not sure what you mean. My username is the one I use to log in. And the @handle part of the character@handle name.

    Mine isn't and I think it was not even possible to pick the same one (it's been more than 2 years, so I can'T really be sure).

    the reason for that is security, so someone can't simply pick up your name in zone chat or something and effectively guess your password to rob you clean.

    And it's not just virtual stuff.

    Imagine someone hacking into your account and buying a 1000 master keys which he then transfers into his account through 2 or 3 fleet banks or the exchange and then sells them for a small fortune (a real one).

    And you are broke in real life...

    Unless you pay by credit card, which I think is required. Then its fraud, easy to fight, and doesn't cost you. Hassle, but not money.

    Risk is to your EC in the bank, which Cryptic has fought replacing when stolen. CP is through them, and they can control that transaction, and have been fixing when hacked, I believe...

    Yeah, you may get everything back with enough effort, but I still would recommend not letting it happen in the first place ;)

    Obviously, just pointing out that while it might take 2 minutes on the phone to sort out, your assertation about being broke in real life over this was nonsense.

    Unless your credit card is provided by Libertarian Bank or something... ;)

    Tried inviting you, says you're already in a fleet. Didn't see you on our roster, so either I'm doing something wrong, or you joined another one already.

    Can only be in one, so gotta leave that one if you want to join ours. Grab whatever it lets you grab from their bank on the way out ;)

    Sent you an invite.

    Make sure to join the TrekBBS channel:

    Rightclick the chat tab on top of the chat box, choose channels and enter TrekBBS Subspace Com

    Also the Tailor has our fancy TrekBBS themed uniform waiting for you. Just select it from the fleet uniform dropdown, put the fleet shoulder patch on and you can show of our colors.

    the fleet bank has a wide selection of rare gear.

    If you provide the unreplicatable materials our fleet crafters
    can help with gear that's not in the bank.

    Don't be afraid to ask if you need help with missions or PvP and STFs or simply want to experience the awesomeness of team play.

    Unless the signup has changed, there was a warning about using the same player name as your account name. So "Rocketeer_7" is my player name and it's much different than my account name.

    +++

    Someone mentioned changing names. You can change a character's name by buying a token from the C-store. I think you can change your account name, but it would be a pain. You'd probably have to explain to Cryptic/PWE that you suspected that someone was trying to hack it.

    I started a new thread for fleet recruitment and discussion of fleet matters with a FAQ section in the first post that should give all necessary informations on how to join the fleet, how to get the fleet uniform, how to join the fleet chat, etc.

    Please post there from now on.

    I think it's time to retire this one. :)
