    Character Name on Profile

    Suggestion Details

    Describe your suggestion in as much detail as possible.
    Simple suggestion - add the ability to set your character name on your forum profile. It should ideally be displayed on both the profile page and somewhere underneath the profile picture when you reply/start a topic.

    Why do you feel this would be beneficial to the community if added?
    Easily identify who roleplays what character IG. An easy example where this would be helpful is if you IC'ly wanted to email say, a law enforcement officer about a query you had. Instead of signing up on the faction forums, you could instead find and PM him/her with your IC email on the main forums.

    This essentially saves you from having to sign up to a forum you'll rarely use.

    An absolutely wonderful idea. I'd love to see it in play, but Zuthrex tried making the login system for the panel an extension, and that's what we'd basically have to do for this. I'm sure it'd be difficult.

    Unless we let people set it manually. The name on the forum doesn't necessarily need to be linked to the database.

    Players are able to manually set a name on their forum account. If staff feel this is a need in the future it can be discussed at that time, archived.
