I agree. Most people on there are just trying to make the pack name a bit more interesting. As long as it's not out of control, of course.

It's stated here, though that is true, they are like that. No one seems to follow that rule very well.

Also the weird symbols sometimes dont work on certain peoples windows and makes it look all messed up and screwy, and it makes things hard to read.

If there are way too many symbols, it can be distracting, annoying, and disturbing. Decorating the topic's name is allowed as long as it's minor and the actual title can be read properly. Some people use "design" in their pack topic names to lure members; it can make a pack look very interesting if the name has unknown or rare special html characters.

When you said disturbing, I laughed ^_^

For a pack I'm in, all they did for their title was:

☼Thunderclan☼

Or something like that.

Using one or two special characters isn't disturbing. But the example Mezz gave us (***~~~---___\{The_(pack name)_Pack}/___---~~~***) goes over the line in my opinion. For instance, it is way too long and stuffed full of html/special characters. It's not very nice to browse topics like that. It's just plain distracting.

Yeah... It can get ennoying. And sometimes I see packs that's name is in different font with all those stranges symbols and it looks just ridiculous and stupid. Plus I can't even read it...

I totally agree with you Songdog. It does get annoying with titles like that.
