Colonist.io Player Suggestions
I click the edit button, enter a new name and click the checkmark, but nothing happens and it goes back to the default "Ertha5066" name
This happens a lot with non-logged in players that try to change their name once in a lobby. It takes a few tries and sometimes doesn't work at all. Might be best to just create a log-in.
I noticed it wouldn't work for my family unless they took out the #xxxx. And then it would work, and add a new #xxxx.Maybe this is just a confusing user experience? Maybe the name dialogue should just start empty, and make it obvious how many characters the player can use.
