When one person obtained a Petz from me and wanted to show it, I was not prepared at all, even though I would've wanted that person to use his/her own prefix instead when it's theirs now.
Well... if you prefer to stay anonymous and wouldn't want people to know a cat being shown came from you, you don't have to ask people to use a show prefix for you. It's only if you do want people to know a pet being shown originally came from you. It's kind of a "pride" and "lineage" kind of thing... you don't have to participate if you don't want to. I personally think it's fun
A little off-topic but how do people come up with show names? Does it have to be completely random or something in relation to the Petz itself, much like how it is in real life? I think one can do either way but I'm just curious.
It doesn't have to be anything -- people are completely free to pick show names for their petz, as long as it has their prefix in front of it. I looooooooove to pick show names for my petz!! I usually go with something that is either related to their looks or that pairs well with their call name. For instance, I love to make puns or come up with silly little things that binds their call name with their show names in some way, like this:
Call name: Comma
Show name: RKC's Punctuation Is Important
Call name: Cellulite
Show name: RKC's Fat Chance
Call name: Quiz
Show name: RKC's Question Me Not
Call name: Mistake
Show name: RKC's Cherished Derelict
Call name: Pyrotechnics
Show name: RKC's Brilliant Display
Things like that But that's just me. Other people do it their own way, of course. I think it's tons of fun to come up with show names, and maybe even make people smile or think "wow, what a cool show name!"
