    About deleting/Renaming

    Hi all, first post, long time read.

    My question is this:

    Can anyone please offer any advice concerning the renaming thing?

    As far as I understand, you delete a character, make a mule occupying that name, and when your character is restored, you'll have the option of renaming it.

    Is this correct? If anyone you know, or better yet do YOU have any experience in this regard? Is it 100% assuming they restore it? I'm not asking is restoring 100%, I'm asking if for example they DO restore it, and the name is taken, is it 100% that they will ask you to rename or will they simply say "oops, sorry cant do it. You're beat."

    I know that you can only restore once per PoL ID.

    Thank you sincerely in advance.

    Delete the character, make the mule, go into that POL GM thing and talk to one of them. They ask you for the ID Numbers, birthday, address, ethnic background, tax returns - after all that they confirm it and it takes a couple of days before your character pops back up. The renaming is auto - they don't actually ask you to rename it. When you log in you just.. have to.

    THank you. I've read one post on Killing ifrit while waiting for responses to this post and it all seems to say the same.

    I dont know what they'll ask me to restore it, I dont write EVERYthing down. I got my credit/billing info, PoL ID, any question they could ask me bout the character, etc.

    I dont want to do this and then have them ask me anything I didnt think of to prove my identity. I dont know my PoL Email for example, I never used it.

    Im gonna do it :D

    They will ask you for your FFXI and POL registration keys as well.

    One thing...make sure the new "mule" with the old character's name is either on another account, or a different content ID, you don't want to loose your toon...

    if you do it on the same Content ID than your old character is gone.

    if you do it on the same account than certain people would be smart enough to figure it out and make you delete it (but most people wouldn't care).

    fixed.

    He wouldn't post it to have competition if he planned to buy it.

    Personally I don't see why he'd care

    Maybe he has a bad rep, doesn't want people to know he sold his account but rather quit etc. I could come up with a ton of reasons.

    But if I saw what I thought was a good deal, which it is so obviously not I wouldn't advertise where to buy it so somebody could buy it out from under me.

    Person 1:"Hey guys, check out this awesome deal and there's only one left!"

    Person 2:"Cool thanks, I just bought it."

    Person 1:"What? noooooo!"

    You guys had the general idea, but were a tad off.

    I'm not the one selling that account, and I dont know who is. It was bad timing, and that's really all it is (the post subjects).

    Is there any way to obtain your PoL and FFXI registration codes if you've lost the little booklet they came in?

    common sense says there should, the harsh reality says no.
