Attention Route Citizens,
There is an important matter that must be brought to your attention.
We've decided that the user experience is being harmed by users' ability to have "names" and "avatars". This causes inconsistency, and leaves visitors confused: who are these people? What do these names mean? What are the pictures for? How do I relate to them?
In order to make ourselves more appealing to others, to each other, and to create a safer environment, we've decided from henceforth everyone is now a Pokémon. There are no more silly "names" anymore; those are strange, erroneous anomalies. You are now beloved, familiar characters.
This change is permanent. I trust you will be immediately comfortable with your new identity. It may not be what you imagined, but have faith that it is the proper form for you.
Good luck to you all. You're welcome.
