    In my user data folder I keep having a folder created for an 8th character I have never had. A folder named 'Galasrinion' is constantly created, even after being deleted. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    Only thing I can think of is logging off while in incognito spell or diguises, but it shouldnt be the same name created all the time.

    That would certainly cause the folder, But to be done over and over.. *scratches head*

    That's no Incognito name, either.

    GL in your name means you play Great Lakes? no character by that name on that shard according to search on MyUO

    Are you sure of that Aran? Incognito names are no longer just 'john' or 'fred'. I used it a couple of times when making the images for the advent calendar:

    There's a Luna vendor named that on Atlantic, how odd

    It may well be on the 'Elf' names list, as Sevin mentions it's an NPC elf one, albeit not one you see very often - mainly because of the scarcity of Elf NPCs outside Heartwood.

    I was gonna say your account's haunted but Petra beat me with a proper answer :D

    I'd say change your account password just in case some hacker has a freaky sense of humour. Then perhaps make a new character if that doesn't fix it.

    You don't live with any practical jokers do you?

    since it's an eighth char slot it has to be incognito or a disguise kit - ie one of the regular 7 in disguise. Is there maybe a char that was logged off under incognito that hasn't been logged in since? I'm clutching at straws I'm afraid, I don't really know.

    The incog is probably the best reason, I hadn't thought of that. Thanks guys
