What are folks naming their system account?

(Tobias Eigen) #1

I don’t especially like the “system” name for the system account.

I understand why it’s important to have it but it doesn’t make sense on my forum (Kabissa) everywhere it appears such as in email notifications. So I have just named it “Kabissa” to ensure that people know these notifications are from Kabissa. But it still doesn’t “feel right” since now “Kabissa” appears in places where “System” would actually make more sense.

Discourse also renames this user back to system with every update so the name change is not permanent.

Has anyone else come up with a standardized name for this system/robot user account that works well on your site? Maybe “SITENAME Robot” would do it for some sites. But for my community serving African nonprofits I don’t know if that’s suitable.

“System” does have a Profile

So I guess puzzled members members should be able to figure out “who” System is.

But true, the site name should ideally be visible somewhere.

well, it’s more than just that - people get emails from this user which looks supremely odd to those who don’t already know what it is, which right now is just about everybody because the forum is so new. :smiley:
