Default Option for real names in forum profiles?

Hi all,

I would find it useful to be able to show/see forum poster's real names (opt in of course). People are doing this already with their SeqAnswers wiki accounts, are these connected to the forum accounts in some way? If so could the forum profile link to the user's wiki profile?

Alternatively is is possible to change a username?

Thanks,

Peter

Hmm, looks like I can edit my "Custom User Title" from "Senior Member", maybe I should just use that field?

Or can a Forum account username be renamed by an admin?

I don't know about the forum, but I can tell you about the wiki. Indeed, each user in the forum is mirrored in the wiki, and it's possible to provide a direct link between the two. In addition, users can describe themselves using a minimal form in the wiki.

I have planned to initialize these links for each wiki user 'by default', but I got hung up trying to create a 'bot' account on the wiki to do this job. (Bot accounts are difficult precisely because of the way the forum accounts link to the wiki accounts, but it's not a serious problem TBH).

Once this is done, I wonder if the forum profile could be configured to show the information provided on the wiki page?

I'll also look into integrating ORCID into the wiki.
