Friends Name Variable

Friends Name Variable

Short, concise description of the idea
A variable to put into FRIENDS_ENTRY that would show the name of the person posting.

Full description of the idea
This variable (%%fname%%, maybe? %%friendname%%?) would have the same relationship to %%user%% that %%name%% has to %%username%%.

An ordered list of benefits

  • You'd be able to see the "Real Name" out of the database for people who post, which is often more immediately recognizable than a name like "jrg3994458".
  • It would benefit people who have a style made to look like a web-based E-mail account and want to have the friend's name show up in quotation marks in the "From" section next to <>. Such as, for example, me.
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • It would require a new variable, and I don't know how hard that would be to do.
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • I really have no idea how to do this; I'm not a programmer.
