Although this is trivial, I somehow know you've probably made something
for this as well: a who command. Do you display real names of characters?
Well obviously then a character could easily discover whether or not Bubba
was really Boffo like he said he was by doing a simple who command. Or
the more intelligent Bubba might claim to be another player who is logged
in. Do you get rid of the who command altogether? Do you show short
descriptions a/o player named descriptions? Or perhaps if there is an account
system (you make an account, then you can make characters with that
account) and you display each account name that is on? (That would also
be nice for OOC type commands.) Players liked to be assured that there
are other human beings playing the game. So what is the almighty JCL's
answer to this minor situation? =)
