The names we release aren't available for new accounts, they're only for members.


As a non-member, would I be able to change my name by using a bond, or would I have to subscribe to members before I could change my name?


These soon-to-be released character names will only be available for members. You're best to use a Bond to get membership and, assuming you havn't recently changed name, you'll be able to grab one.

I've updated the original post with the below text to answer some of the recurring questions:


We're looking at starting to release inactive names 2-3 weeks from now. We'll announce more details closer to the time. The releases will be done in batches over the course of (hopefully) a fortnight.

We will also be watching closely to guard against name resellers and mass-hording. RWT for character names is not allowed and we'll ban any and all accounts used by someone for such mass name selling.

Are there going to be certain times of when the names will be released?


We'll give more info in a couple of weeks when we're closer to releasing the names.
Would you prefer an exact time or a vaguer hint at when it'll happen?

And Pips, any idea how many names will be released at a time? If it's a small amount then it'll be much harder to obtain one, and also where will the list be?


We're looking at in the region of 50 million+ total.
Broken up into maybe 4-5 batches. But I can't confirm that yet, we've still got some prep to do before we can confirm quantities, batches and release times.

Could display names for RS3 and OSRS be separate? There are names that are inactive on oldschoo but will never be available because the player plays RS3 :(

No sorry it's the same system.
