Evolution of the Display Name

Looks like this feature request has finally become a reality.

What a pity we can’t keep display names though.

Exactly! Want to connect with that random person who rocked their wings and flashed their lights at you? Have feedback for someone? Want to swap pictures with someone flying the same route? This is a great way to engage! 🙂

Wow, very nice. Just one question, will it be like my ifc username and then my callsign comes up, or my callsign and my ifc username is in 1 line

Absolutely great Change.

Honestly something I’d never expect. I quite enjoyed the display name we have now, but then again:

“Out with the old”.

I ike this change, but I have my concerns. It’s a great way of bringing together that community aspect of IF even more. However, what if some people still want a “display name” per say, but don’t necessarily want to be on the forum? It seems a bit iffy to just kinda force someone onto the IFC to have that extra little nametag displayed

This is very interesting! I am excited to see this implemented!

Will an Infinite Flight subscription be required to create a Forum account now?

I wonder what you will have to do if you are in a VO that requires you to have their name in your display name, what if you are in multiple that requires you have that? ex IPP or IFAE

This will be covered in the release notes.

The ability for you to manually type your display name is being removed. It will be replaced with your IFC name if you choose to link the two.
