Name unavailable?

5 replies 464 views Edited May 14, 2013

hello all..i decided on making a 2nd PSN account... the name i had in mind was taken..(but the person probably never logs on or its probably an abandoned account)...

 

so i tried adding characters like x's.. and i noticed on one of them it wasnt taken but it wouldnt let me use the name..which was x_2Fast4U_x ....... just wondering why.. i really wanted to use the 2Fast4U name... please get back to me on that.

Hi welcome to the forums.  If it was available I can't say as to why it wouldn't let you use it.  It doesn't seem to have anything that seems it would deemed "inappropriate" so I can't really say. Perhaps someone else will chime in that has a better idea. If not you can always try contacting customer support to see why it won't let you.

Keep playing around with other screen names too. I've seen lots of iterations of "too fast for you" it's a very common name.  You find another version that you like better that it has no problem getting up and running. Good luck!

It doesn't seem like 2Fast4U has been taken.  There might be some issue with the filter misidentifying it; I can't think of any reason it would be blocked either.

It is common to add an x in front of PSN names, particularly ones that start with a digit, which are not valid names by themselves.  After over six years, all of the obvious names have been taken.  I would be surprised if x_2Fast4U_x was still available after all this time.
