As you may have noticed, there's a new link in the user bar called "My Characters", located next to the "My Controls" link. This is the new character manager that allows players to view/delete their DN characters.

To take advantage of this new feature, you must first log into DN, head to the AFK Lounge and "speak" with the Eternal Flame. The flame will whisper you a private validation key. This is not your NWN CD-Key. As with any key, it is strongly suggested you keep it private -- no one will ever ask you for your validation key.

Once you have been whispered your validation key, write it down. Return to the your character manager here on the forums and enter your Gamespy account and the validation key in the provided form. This links your forum ID to your Gamespy account in a secure manner. You may only have one Gamespy account linked to your forum ID, we have no to plans to add support for more -- if you have several Gamespy accounts you play on DN with, you should pick the one you use the most. Make sure you enter your Gamespy account exactly as you do when you log in to play (Account and Key are case-sensitive).

After the form has been completed and submitted, if your key is valid (you only need to follow this procedure the first time), you will be able to continue to your character manager.

On that page, you will see all the characters you own for that Gamespy account. From there, you can click the [ delete ] link which will flag the given character for deletion. The character will only be deleted the following day -- you can cancel/remove the deletion flag from a character by clicking on the [ cancel deletion ] link that appears in front of a flagged character. Once a character is deleted, all data associated with it is gone (meaning you will be able to re-use the name).

Please note that we are still in the process of testing this new feature. If you encounter any bugs please post a detailed report in the bugs forum.

NOTE: You characters won't be deleted if the system detects you are currently logged in while it tries to delete files belonging to you. Therefore, it may take more than one day for a flagged character to be deleted.

PS. The DN Admin/Dev/DM team is not responsible for any characters wrongfully deleted. You are responsible for 1) Keeping your key private; and 2) Logging out of your account if accessing via a public/shared computer.

Thank you Exm for this feature. I can finally start purging charters that I've wanted to remove.

Excellent! Thank you EXM! I have always felt bad about having 'dead' characters clogging up the server. You are the Man! :-)

We're also not responsible if your dog/children/angry wife/angry husband finds the link and deletes all your characters for you, hehe. smile.gif

Seriously, big thanks to exm for building this project, and kudos to Emaleth for sending the PM to the design team that snowballed into this feature.

Thanks Kathy and Mike!

Characters are not deleted until the following morning. This gives you time to change your mind.

Are you expecting them to be deleted right away?

Or is something else not working?

Just a note to add Dave, for folks on EST (like me in MI), if you delete a character in the morning, it is deleted by the afternoon. So assuming that the DN site is half a day ahead of me already. If I delete a character in the afternoon, then it doesn't get deleted until well into the next day. Might be something to add in somewhere maybe in case someone does like I did, and decide at work to maybe do an FOY and come back from work.. well, ya know heh heh

But Ghost, it does take a 'day' to delete them.

Carry on...

Oh, okay then. I thought E synched it with the char list compiler at 6am PST, but it sounds like maybe not.

How about "it will be deleted within 24 hours"?

Double check that the spelling is exactly correct; for both your Gamespy ID and your KEY. The case is important too - everything that's capitalized, or not, must be exactly right.
