The way "characters" are made allows for a sort of namespace reservation process that has me seeing a whole lot of "shell" accounts, e.g. @Taki who may or may not be the account of Taki the Skunk. I myself made a character for URL at @jessica as well as my own @jessabelle just for the namespace. I know naming and namespaces are a tricky part of any website, so I wanted to voice @antnommer's suggestion of having verified usernames for people. I would love to be on that list.
