I actually like the current setting, for people who use the Dynmap to find rp it prevents any accidental metagaming. This way all you have to do is seek out the most populated location and your chances of finding rp is on your favor.

What about an overlay depicting people's faces but not their names?

That would give you a few hints judging by their faces, but would not tell your their names until you've met them, making determining in OOC where your friends are easier.

That's what the server I came from had.

As long as people can see where other people are on the dynmap it'll be used for metagaming.
Dynmap hide setting is useful for that. The usual rule that I dunno, you will be banned if you meta game does good at keeping me in line.

While I'm fine with the anonymous 'blip' style we currently have, metagaming by using the dynmap can and should be punished on a case by case basis. It's rather obvious when someone has metagamed to find your position, and if you think they've done it with nefarious purposes, then just holla' at a staff member.

On the flip side, I'm fine with people metagaming my position if they just want to chance upon my characters for a bit of RP, so long as it isn't used to hone in on someone like a surface-to-air missile.
