    I created some characters with some pretty terrible builds and now I want to just delete them and start fresh. On my first re-creation I was told that my deleted character's name was in use. I waited roughly a week and tried again but still says the name is taken. Is this a permanent thing or do I just have to wait a really long time for my previous names to become available?

    Names should be able to be re-used when deleted. Now, whether that is happening correctly is something I'll check out.
    Thank you for letting us know.

    The names are cached permanently, the name won't be free'd again until the server is restarted and can re-initialize the entire cache and detect that your old character was deleted.

    I will take a look into handling the deletion of characters and unregistering their names with a more immediate solution.
