149 (NEWS 360) - SHORT vs. Name
By Alara: I've reverted the SHORT attribute idea. It's going to cause way too many problems, especially with things like an object that is @force'd to communicate via say/emote and such. We'll just have to put up with long, descriptive names until one of the devs decides to enable the @alias attribute for THINGs. Which they don't see the point in doing in all the three years I've tried convincing them too. But that's a rabbit trail. In short, no SHORT!
