Force Name Changes


If supported by NS2 allow an admin to force someone to change their name.

After thinking about it some more this may be a little too specific. If the functionality exists to force the client to make client side changes it would open up a whole world of possibilities (and griefing). If such functionality exists a name change would be pretty trivial. This issue could be expanded to include forcing many different types of changes to the client.

^^ This is not entirely true. It's fairly easy to force a change of name without having acces to more core features of the client (normally the acces is limited to rate settings) - The problem with this however is probably more going to be the new STEAM engine forcing players name through their engine rather than the game, trumphing the access level of the game.
