I'd really like to be able to use character names in the forums instead of the log-in name. For 2 reasons.

The first being I have several memebers in my guild who's name was taken for the site so they had to register a different name than that of their character. This leads to some confusion on the forums. I ask them to add their character name to their sig. to identify them.

The second reason is the ability to post with a different character. It's hard to role play as my lvl 18 Rogue when my lvl 50 Warrior's name is my login name. So I am in effect unable to add my rogue into any RP that may go on in the forums since my forum name is my log in name.

It would be great to be able to select characters during the login.

Blizzard's WoW forums have that ability.  It's pretty cool.

This feature is a highly desired one for many of the members of myguild.  If we could get a thumbnail image and signature percharacter (instead of per account) - then if we could select acharacter for each post - that would be well appreciated by the memberswho enjoy roleplay.

Let me add my voice to this request, for the same reasons that the orginal poster gave.
