Short and sweet suggestion, possibly for Roland (or website admins).

Currently, in the "How to join" section it shows the following:

I am suggesting that we add the following to help clarify the difference between display name and character name to new members:

If the added sentence could be put in the DayZRP red it could look quite nice.

 

I'm only suggesting this as I often see a lot of new members joining and not realising. This has also been the case for some of our older members.

Not a huge change but it could help people out a tad, at least those that read it 😄.

I see what you mean by this, and it wouldn't hurt to have it for those who accidentally do this. +1

It has come up many times, I see it as a simple clarification to help. If people read it though remains to be seen...

I don't see any harm in this, and it's a simple fix.

I suggest changing it to;

You will need to create a forum account in order to be able to play on our servers. You can create a forum account by clicking on the 'Sign Up' button at the top right of the website and filling in the required information. Note that the name wil be the name of your forum account, and not your character. You wil be able to create a name for your character once you create a 'Character Page'.

'Forum Name' would be better fit, as it'll be your name on the forums.

Yeah honestly I'm for this. I was one of those that were confused so I used my Steam name at the time, when really I could have used my actual tag that I go by. But instead found myself stuck with this. I went with it, but it would have been nice for clarification.
