Because you have a Login name and a Visible Forum name. The shoutbox checks your login name.

Thumbs up

But could he change his visible name so that it's the same as his login name? Can someone customize that visible name of his? Can I?

sounds like u cant, but i'd like to try and find out how... cause it's already confusing some people, with one of my names different to the other.

Something of the like happens to me, I've got different nicknames here and in Abandonia Reloaded.

So Mr. Tom Henrik, could you please dispel this uncertainty?

Admin can choose both. if the needs arise.
However don't go asking for a name change. They are rarely granted as they cause confusion

But in Japofran/Tanaka's case, I think it will remove the confusion (or at least make it less apparent).

PM me the name you want people to see, dude k:
(And of course, for which forum you want the change)

Thanks a lot Tom, PMed you already. And thanks also to Data, his info was right and helpful, I was wondering whether it could be self-customized and now I know it's not, sounds pretty logical.
