It is in the plan to add that as an option in the user profiles, but some boards won't like that. Also, there's a black-list feature in the next version that keeps certain names from ever showing up to someone else. (Useful for example if you have one person responsible for discipline, but don't want everyone to know what characters he plays.)
You could add it as an option in the admin board!
Or even, to add as an option in the admin board to add as an option in the user board.
Also, that is a very good idea, so that the person does not need one discipline account to be used seperately...
The reason I was asking is that I think it would be GREAT if there was a mother account with subaccounts (haha that is the name of the SMF mod
) linked or an option to do so, that way people can see the main account (of the person), and also the subaccounts (of the characters). When a subaccount (character) is clicked on, in the SMF mod it shows that it is a subaccount by showing Forum>Profiles>User>Subaccounts>Character in that thing that always shows how you navigate to that spot, if you get what I mean... I personally think if it just had a section (at the top?) of the subacc profile that said it was a subacc of so and so's account, that would be even better and more visible too.
While I'm on this semi-rant, I will also mention that being able to have different profile fields for accs versus subaccs would be amazing as well.

No, but it's a feature I can add to my to do list if you'd like.
That would be amazing, thanks!
A huge part of the reason I've been hooked on this idea is less about simplicity of changing accounts, but more about a) seeing the links and subaccs (like I mentioned) and b) each person not having 10 million characters, which downgrades RP quality.

I''m on too many boards and don't remember if posting outside links here is kosher or not, so I'll message you the link. ^_^"
