Solved "Please choose a unique name for your horse. Try adding a prefix."



  • When trying to register a horse on the main site, I keep getting the error message:

    "Please choose a unique name for your horse. Try adding a prefix."

    No matter how many different name combinations, the error message always comes up.
    I have tried:
    AF Алиса в стране чудес
    Алиса в стране чудес AF
    Алиса в стране чудес
    AF Alisa v strane chudes
    Alisa v strane chudes AF
    AF why does this not work

    And The same message just keeps coming up... with or without the creator's prefix.. Help?

    Hello!
    Due to a quirk in the system it requires not only the show name of the horse to be unique but also the barn name.
    This happens only at the moment you create the horse so a recommended strategy is to make the barn name the same as the show name (which is already unique) and then change it to the horses true barn name afterwards :)

    Good luck!



  • @Elsie-Spectre Thank you! Changing the barn name managed to work so got it sorted now, many thanks for helping :)
