Looking to try to figure out how to make Gamerlaunch work for ARMA 3. In most ARMA 3 units, a member can apply with a username (Say A_USER), and will be told to change their name to the unit format (A. User). The rank will then add the rank prefix (PVT) to their name, for a formal display name of PVT A. User. I notice we can't freely change the name of people on the site, and there doesn't seem to be a way to add rank Prefix's either. I've also noticed characters, but characters appear to come attached with a 'Level' that doesn't make sense for us.
Does anyone have any thoughts as to how we could go about this?
In your profile you can change your "display name" .. would that help?
There's also the option of giving people "awards" (perhaps like ranks?) https://www.gamerlaunch.com/community/forums/viewtopic.php?p=12515913&gid=535#12515913
not sure if that would help at all.
Changing the display name would certainly work, but I was hoping for functionality like Enjin where someone could update their display name on a particular site without changing it globally.
On here, it is site wide.
Thanks for coming to check us out.
You'll want to have a look through the Admin Menu->Rosters settings to start. I believe you'll want to switch your settings over to the Member modes, because "characters" don't quite make sense for your situation.
If you navigate to Admin Menu->Rosters->Misc. Settings, you should see Default Viewing Mode, switch that to Show Members. You can also set "Character Adding" to "No" instead of "Yes (Default)".
Next look at the Admin Menu->Rosters->Ranks page and make sure you have the ranks set there that you would like.
Once you have the ranks you want, you can apply those ranks to members. When the members post in the forums, it will show their profile icon, their profile name below that and then their rank underneath that. Their rank also shows below their name when viewing the Member roster section of the site.
Mountain is correct, your profile display name is site wide, as in all of gamerlaunch.
Lastly, I thought we did have a setting to stop displaying the character level on the roster, but we do not have that setting. However, when viewing the Member Roster, it does not display anything about character level or character settings like faction and such.
Let me know if that helps answer your questions!
Thanks for the welcome!
I might request to nominate that for a site feature then. A site specific display name for a user would be a great asset for any ARMA unit, as would the ability for admin to change the name accordingly.
Enjin is promoting Gamer Launch. Expect new comers. :)
