The most basic implementation of such a system would be to have the avatar name field required and check with db to be unique. No extra verification and in no way manual verification should be done. But havign that displayed for new avatars, the community (the curious ones) will do their research further.
At the time of this thread was created, we had several new accounts trashing the forum and even if people figured out they were dodgy and reported them, your advanced systems took days and weeks to do the job even with reports from community. So yeah, the community would benefit from such a thing, anyone that would give two shits about this community could see that. But it's not the case, no MA staff gives the required two shits. Yeah I know this project (pcf) is greatly understaffed and having big workload took away any satisfaction, it's noticeable in your posts for some weeks now, this won't fix that, but this, along with other things you do, could help having a more clean air around here so new players could stick around for longer. We definitely need an active community manager but that's another topic......potential benefits of such a system are unclear at best.
