    I want to make an account on Facebook purely for gaming purposes. I want to have the same username I use here on the temp. However Facebook has a checker of sorts to see if your name is legit and obviously "RemixDeluxe" isnt a real name. Any way to bypass this?

    Use "Remix" as your first and "Deluxe" as a surname? You could also try to create an artist page at https://www.facebook...ages/create.php, it lets you enter any name you want, but I don't think you can actually use that as a normal account and it'll be public.
    Edit: I tried to use "Remixes" and "Deluxes" with email adress a@gmail.com (told me I had 110 friend requests xD) and it worked, so you're probably fine unless it checks for dictionary words.

    Well thats the thing. The purpose to the account is to play games that are exclusive to Facebook so I dont want any social interaction at all with it. Also I tried the Remix first name and Deluxe last name and that didnt work.

    In that case try Remixes Deluxes, that works. You probably can't use dictionary words.

    Just as a heads up though, many of those facebook games are based around have a large group of friends to help you achieve stuff. Without them, you are going to be needing to make in-game purchases or suffer through very long waits.

    Nope. I tried that already and I'm guessing you got accepted was cause of the "es" part of the first name.

    Maybe. Or maybe they began filtering more thoroughly after I had made the account.

    Then just use a generic name like

    First name: John
    Last name: Doe

    If you aren't interacting with anyone, who cares about the name.
