Currently, the way Discourse is configured “out of the box” shows both a user ID and a full name above the post.
- Is this redundant?
- Why do we need both?
I can imagine that some communities are more driven on user ID’s, and some communities relate more to real names. (And some communities that fall into the latter group may have some people who are only known by user ID for some reason like privacy.)
Should admins be able to configure whether to (a) show both, (b) show one or the other, or © prefer one if both are available or
fall back to the other option if not?
What do other folks think?
