Blizzard SoL Real ID thread

So, with patch 3.3.5, Blizzard has implemented cross server, cross faction and cross game, battle.net chat as part of its new real ID system. While unfortunately this is not cross-region, it still allows the disparate population of SoL to communicate even when they're on different servers. Bear in mind, however, that Real ID allows those you add to view your real name, and other friends, so it is, indeed, a pretty big leap of faith. Even so, I'm going to start the trend by putting my email out there, Maximilian DOT ximenez AT gmail DOT com. Any US players can feel free to add me, though I'd appreciate a message stating who they are on SOL.

And the downsides of multiple people on an account continue to amount.

Sadly I just canceled my account since I didn't have time to use it anymore, so now I just have to wait for Wings of Liberty before Real ID is any use to me.

Still considering how much information about myself I am willing to divulge. As of right now, I am only going to use the Real ID for personal friends and people I have met in person. But I might throw my ID out here another time.

I completely understand that- plenty of my good wow friends don't even want to USE real ID, so I definitely understand.


It's not like, as an admin, I can't just find out your email anyway, though.

My e-mail is easy, it's my real name I don't like everyone knowing.

It's also as simple as googling someones internet alias (which they likely use elsewhere) and finding things such as facebook/myspace accounts or profiles on other sites. :p My stuff is pretty out there already due to all the things I do and so my e-mail is warlord25(at)msn.com which is also US.

When you see what information of someone you can find on the internet with just their name, I'm glad to be sticking behind an alter-ego(one used from another game). It can be scary, really, so many people blindly putting personal(confidential) information on the internet. Some people can be so naive :S oh well, ignorance is a bliss.(not talking about an email adress, the amount of stuff people put on things like facebook etc.)

I have a different name for most every account I hold. The e-mail I've attached to SoL is my personal one, but it still has no connection to my name. And with the exception of my business e-mail (which does use my real name) all the others are things that make googling me impossible.

Seriously, just try googling Cantus or Solitus. Yeah, absolutely nothing about me.

As long as you're careful about what you put on the internet then there really isn't much else to get. Now sure you can find out where I live but that's honestly the least of my concern. Now I can see the security risks if you do things like post your dogs name on your facebook account and then use that as the secret question for your bank account.

I'm not going to post my email up here for all to see, but, if for some reason you guys actually like to chat with a grumpy old fart like me, you know where my PM box is. I won't be holding my breath waiting for it to ding, either.

It comes late, but here it is:

TIP OF THE DAY

Never, ever, post your email address in the public domain, and if you do, post it like:

direction [@] mail [.] com

Instead of direction@mail.com, that launches a url shortcut to your address: translated: SPAAAAAAM.

Also, the mail is displayable to registered users inly in your profile if you enable it for it, and there only registered users can see it .

It's true. I have glasses, and I had them made with the Transition lenses, because of how all Americans are required to wear sunglasses.

I used to play there a long time ago. Now I just have a few scattered alts I originally intended to RP with. Good server, and lots of drama. (which is good. server drama <3)
Somehow managed to keep the name "Kaffemann" there. Still have it. lolmods
