    I have all names off - myself, other players, and NPCs.

    (although I have enemy nameplates on for hostile NPCs and PvP)

    I'm pretty sure I have it on, either way, I don't really notice it anymore.

    I do. Its just always been like that and I see no reason why to change it. Doesn't really affect gameplay. Would feel weird without it tbh.

    Showing your own name is not on by default, so if you never bothered, it would be off...

    I turned my name on, and my buddy got actually mad at me. Ever since then, it's been off, haha.

    Only people I've seen with own names turned on tended to be PvP videos made by people who were very pleased with themselves.

    Have just name + guild on for others, don't care what their title is and it makes names extremely long.

    I turn all my names off. I play on an RP server, and bad names really get on my nerves. Turning off the names helps me see the world better and less report spam to Blizzard. :P

    I see others' names, but I don't see my own name, I'm fairly certain I know my own name.

    Fun how to see other people also have it turned on, i found it kinda strange when i saw it @ him

    I also dont like all the names cluttering my screen, have titles etc turned off.

  12. #32
    No, I never have it on. It's distracting... I know who I am and I know where my character is on the screen without it.

    Never understood why there even is option to show my own name. On other players i have only name visible and have only hostile nameplates always on. I don't even use any titles on myself.
    I don't like: raids, grouping, warcraft movie, doomhammer
    I hate: orcs, especially thrall, pvp, sylvanas, legacy server whiners
    I like: ???

    No. It drives me nuts for some reason.
    They ask me why I'm bringin' - A baby into battle - That's really irresponsible - And getting them rattled
    I say "give me a break - Get off of my back damn, it" - I didn't learn parenting - My daddy was a planet

    I just keep mine turned on, so I know where I am. When I turn my name plate off I sometimes lose track of where I am. Silly I know, but that's what happens. lol.

    not sure why anyone would have it on, seems weird to me, but thats just me.

    i dont have titles, even though I collect them far to much, its just annoying too have anything on my toon showing, other then its gear.

    each to their own I guess
    A woman should never invest in a relationship she wouldn't want her daughter in, nor allow any man to treat her in a way her son would get scoled for.

    I don't need to be reminded of my own characters name, especially when it says on my Unit Frames .

    I still have it on.. never actually turned it off.

  19. #39
    Yes. I'm used to it I guess.

    I'm surprised having it turned on is considered so weird/unpopular!

    I have mine on in part so I remember which title I'm using. I enjoy swapping out titles all the time and I like to see what other people are seeing. /shrug
