Until a few months back, I had no idea that this would be so important but here it is.

Naming your ships.

Someone pointed out to me that people are always seeking intel on everyone they would or would not engage and if you just assembled a new ship in a station it carries your name and the ship type.

Most of that is fine but sometimes the ship type exceed your maximum amount of characters you can put on like:

Apocalypse Navy Iss- since there are is no more possible room for the last two letters

So how about you double the amount of letter a shipname can have?

Yes, I know and I don't think it's lazyness since your ship will have that name anyway.

So an elitatwo's Apocalypse Navy Issue will have the name on it, no matter what. It's just renaming it that makes problems.

Ah, now I see what you're saying - A new ship, when assembled, has a name longer than what you can enter in the "Rename Ship" dialogue.

Yeah that's silly.

CCP make this happen.

Oh my god the limits on ship name length are so annoying.

Very supported.

Holy **** yes. I have had several glorious ideas for naming my ships that have been shot down by not being allowed sufficient characters.

Supported, because I can't be vulgar enough with the amount of space we get right now. Lol

I would like longer names for spaceboats (assuming it doesnt hurt engine performance and such) Although its not hard to name the can "NAVpoc (or Napoc) stuff"

My old Bhaal could have been called *FF No Nice Things For You instead of *FF NoNiceThings4You which while efficient is sorta meh
