Facebook just recently disabled millions 'fake' accounts. This first wave of deletions disabled all accounts with the word 'cosplay' in it. We understand that in the terms and conditions, it requires us to use our reals names, however, we also want facebook to understand that for cosplayers, facebook is more than a social networking site. We connect with people around the world through our hobby or at times profession. Please understand that the reason these 'fake' accounts are even made is that cosplayers want to keep their normal lives separate from cosplay. These accounts aren't fake, they've become a part of us, although they use names that are not true names as listed on our passports and birth certificates, they represent who we are. Not all cosplayers want their real names and information floating around on global networking systems and we would much rather have an alias or another name to go by. Many famous singers, reality stars or movie stars do this. We also understand the idea of a fanpage, however, the difference between a fanpage and cosplay account is clear. A fanpage is where one 'famous' person interacts with his/her fans without much sentimentality or directness. The point of a cosplay facebook/profile is for cosplayers to interact with fellow cosplayers, to plan for events, to rearrange photoshoots with photographers and much more. Therefore, we would like facebook to reconsider this rash decision. For it was made without any warning. Personally, I know that i was in the middle of discussing a photoshoot with a photographer when this happened, and now i can't get in contact with that person. Please put into consideration, the precious memories, countless photos, comments and messages shared by us, all of which are now gone. We weren't given the chance to back up our contacts or finish up sales or even redirect important friends so once again we are asking for a reconsideration. Cosplay is important to all of us, and for many of us, facebook is the network in which we use to express our hard work.
