Real names in profiles

Post by dragos » Wed Nov 08, 2017 2:30 pm

I'm not sure if this Feedback section is for feedback on the TET itself, on the forum or both, but here's one suggestion regarding the forum:
It would be nice to allow users to also put their real name in their profile, besides the username.
I know some forum software allows that, not sure if it's the case here.

I just used my real name for my profile. Klaar.

I did that as well, but only after I previously created an account with the typical ID that I use on forums and social media.
Anyway, there's only so much you can do with an ID (there are certainly more than one Craig) and I do like some forums where you can use your ID of choice yet you can also show your real name if you chose to do so.

As I said, the best way would be to just be able to add it to the profile, so it shows to the left, where the avatar and nickname are displayed.

So, now you have a new field in the profile that you can fill it with your real name :)

It'won't display under the avatar but it will be available in the profile of the users that chose to provide the info.

Cheers

:handgestures-thumbup:
Doesn't take spaces so a bit of creativity should be involved to put your real name, but it's good.
Thanks.
