I don't like using GM subnames.
Guild Titles are enough for me.

Dx but then its easier to scamers to pass off as GMs Dx

Zone

Not when I only use 1 name, or I could have had the character names set to no names under 5 characters.
Then I could just go by Z or Zone

I prefer GM, GM- or [GM]. The first seems to be the most common one nowadays (to me atleast), while the second used to be pretty popular a few years ago, but scammer wise [GM] is probably the best as you can simply set up things so normal players can't put [] in their name. (To add it you'd actually have to go into your database).. so thats pretty much scammer proof aflteast.

I prefer having none, but simply "GM Username" is the only one that looks legitimate to me.
I hate being called a master of anything so I don't use any GM prefix.

I prefer GM-  =3  For the most part, servers with no GM tag usually end up becoming corrupted due to the fact that the GMs look like normal players.  Currently the server I am GMing has no GM tag, which will be fixed soon thankfully ^.^


Becoming a GM means you sacrifice a part of your soul forever, be prepared.

I don't like any prefixes myself. They seem to formal. If I was to choose one though it'd be GM *name*. I personally like using GM guilds to identify myself as one then anything else.

Those are the prefixes GMs use before their name to identify themselves. Nothing big or special.

like guild titles?

I'd have to say that I generally prefer not seeing the prefixes / suffixes to the GM title. =P Mind, I do understand the idea that if you took away the ability to use a certain key [ such as [] ] that it'd be a hell of a lot harder to fake being one, but... Meh. xD I don't know, the prefixes / suffixes always make it feel less professional to me.

I guess it could be. I think in general this is for use of Game Masters and what other server Game Masters like to use for identifying themselves. This isn't a title mind you, this is a prefix. As in part of the charies name.

let me explain... in great detail XD

the people that run the server and help look after it and all are known as the GM's or Game Masters
these GM's often used a prefix or the words GM in front of their name so the normal players can identify them as more then just players but as GM's

example:
GM-JJJ

the words "GM-" would be the GM prefix

I like GM... I also kinda like [GM]

Kisuka

I don't use GM prefixes. Like others have said, I like a Staff Party and Guild more then my name haven GM in it. If I REALLY needed one thought I would have to go with [GM] Just looks nicer and separates the title from the char name.

Yes, that GM prefix isn't a requirement really. And the fact they would be carrying the title "GAME MASTER" means they should really be well familiar of ALL the things about the server.

I also like [GM] with the barracks cause it seperates the title from the name and also since it seems more proffesional since normal players names can't contain barracks.

I'm in the same boat.

I'm also one of the people who would prefer to use a regular name on a GM. I guess have the prefix in front of your name makes it seem a little more professional, but in all honesty, the regular name just seems more natural to me.

Plus, it's easy to tell a GM from a regular player by A) Either paying attention to the guild name/title. B) If they're using a GM sprite (obviously) and the name is yellow, and if a scammer tries to come along, no GM will (or shouldn't) ask for account information.

I prefer GM name. It's all up to the admin if he/she wants to spice up the prefix for a lil bit. ;)

Mamimi

I like 'GeeEm Name' but you know there's always going to be people who won't understand it. xD

Guest

Mamimi

Bots look for GM not GeeEm. :3
