Display Name vs @name

Thomas Becker 1 year ago • updated by Stefanus “HowlinWulf” Fourie 1 year ago 1

When using the @name in a chat or post it would be awesome if the name that went into the chat or post was the display name instead of the actual @username. For example if my username is @jmaxwell and my display name is "John 647" (where 647 is a location number) or "John Maxwell" it would be nice to have the display name inline in the chat as everyone may not know who jmaxwell is but they may know who "John 647" is. I hope I am being clear in what I am trying to ask for. This could be categorized in Chat or Post as it is the same for both.


Perhaps a different suggestion would be to tag someone when you use their full display name? Similar to Facebook has/had it. Just my 2 cents
