A player submitted a character, which I accepted, but the character's name doesnt appear in his submission thread, nor in my Game Controls. I can't open his character. What to do? Can I name and un-named thread?

Currently this is a problem and should probably be addressed in the Suggestions thread.
One can probably send a PM to BobTHJ describing the issue and he can probably fix it for you. Or, if you feel adventurous, you can follow the directions below and fix it yourself. NOTE: You must have full access rights to the document in question (ie be the gm or be given rights to the document by the GM) in order to rename it. Otherwise following these directions will only allow you to view the document in question.
Navigate your way to the page where you can see the link to the unnamed character. Notice it has a little paper looking icon next to the empty parenthases? That's our ticket to fixing this issue.
Now, look at the source code for the page. (In IE 6, you click on the View menu, then click on Source. In Firefox 1.5, either press Ctrl+U on the keyboard, or click on the View menu then click Page Source.)
Bring up the search feature in the source code viewer (you can usually accomplish this by pressing Ctrl+F) and type in the following:
Now, look at the line directly beneath the one highlighted by the search feature. If it reads something like...
<a href="topic.aspx?topicID=xxxxx" style="font-size:12pt"></a> ()
...where xxxxx is an actual number, then that's the line we're looking for. If not, then continue searching.
Once you find this line, copy the parts contained in quotes that are directly after the href element and paste it in your browser window just after the http://www.roleplaymarket.com/ (replacing what's already there if neccesary) and click your browser's Go button. This will take you that particular character page. Using the example above, the browser's address line would look like this:
Once we're on the character page, you can use the action menus at the top to rename the character sheet. Do that and Bob's your uncle.
Hope this helps until provisions are put in place to prevent unnamed characters from causing havoc.
