Is it possible to give your item the exact same name? (in General)
October 21 2007 1:48 PM EDT
Reason why I ask is that I found out that this wasn't possible previously, and I want to have a few of my items 'renamed' while they keep the same name.
In other words I'd want to know if naming extensions are possible... (even when loaning items to someone else)
it sounds like it should be possible by the text on the page, but i had problems with this myself some months ago.

Unless something has recently changed, the answer is no.

Thank goodness then that I just found out that the names of 2 items that I'll have to update/renew in about a week will be getting better themed names :D

This is what I get when trying to rename my MH Boomstick:
An item has already been forged with the Name "Boomstick." You'll have to come up with something else. (Variations of capitalization do count as different names.)
So extensions are not possible unless I am doing something completely wrong.
If you use the same exact name, I don't think it's possible.
I've had to rename an item as well when I wanted to put more time into it and couldn't get it to work either.

That's a bug then.

Is it something that can be fixed quickly or something that will be on the back burner for a while?
FYI, this has been posted a few times before in the forums.

I have had the same issue, that's why there are a couple things named by me that have slight variations to them. I have never been able to rename the same item with the exact same name to extend the naming term.
I just waited until an items name ran out to reup the name

I know this came up before; I thought I fixed it then. :)
