Please remove the "FirstName LastName" default name from forum signup. Instead, please force people to type a unique name when signing up.
There are already at least 10 separate users with this name and this makes it very difficult to tell which is which or to reply to a specific user using that name. Forum users should be required to have a unique name so we can tell who they are and so we can target a reply at a specific user.
And, while you're at it, it would be nice if you could fix the existing duplicates to make them unique. There is one particular "FirstName LastName" user that is particularly active and I can't figure out how to target them specifically in a reply so they will get notified and so others can tell who I'm replying to.
This forum software is already handicapped enough with no actual reply button to reply to (and/or quote) a specific post. This duplicate names it making it even more challenging to direct a reply at a specific post/user who is using this non-unique default name.
