Instead of the world filled with ESFn00bs why not use their steam name instead?

Simple yet effective.

Because you are all n00bs.

Why can't you just easily change your name in a matter of seconds in the options menu?

Exactly geez, don't make a big deal out of things that can be solved easily. Also, ESFn00b usually signifies the fact that the person is new and therefore can be taught :).

What if people really don't want their steam name to be shown, and were expecting a name like "Player" or "ESFn00b"?

On second thoughts; seeing as only n00bs forget to change their name, make it so the default name = steam name + password too!
That would make them learn faster... :D

Every mod has their own "default" name. It's always been ESFN00b....maybe occasionally harsens.

How is this a suggestion for ESF? It's not difficult to go into the "options" menu and change the default name to something of your choosing. You can even change your name in-game through the console by typing "name [insert name]", or if you want to be really lazy, just bind different names to your numpad.

Well ESF-world and a couple of other servers have a pluggin that changes the name of every person that joins as ESFn00b into a name from the database.

Thank you everyone for your helpful comments especially Sub. And no, I use my name in-game.

But seriously, it could work, even without putting the password into the name.

Guzzie, you are usually right but I meet good players who hide the fact they are good (the 3 hit melee gives it away).
