Continuing the discussion from Can't remove Real Name if Admin disables them:
(Apologies if this belongs in UX)
Feature request: Allow the Name field to be disabled on the signup dialog as a settings option.
As per the linked thread, this is to allow more anonymous use, for example when full names are already being hidden throughout the forum.
An alternative way may be, when the "enable names” setting is turned off, do not show the Name field in the signup dialog. (this avoids adding an extra setting).
Hopefully that makes sense…
This is kind of the opposite to Making the name field required or removing it?
