SubAccounts
« on: February 08, 2019, 11:39:11 PM »
This is a brief overview while a full guide is written.

The intention of SubAccounts is to provide an In Character option for making posts. While they are optional, they do give your posts (particularly your profiles and reports) a unique tie to each character, rather than having in character information appearing under a singular name.


To create SubAccounts, go to your Profile and click "Manage SubAccounts" then click Create/Link, and create the SubAccount there.
Please note, names with apostrophes cannot be entered here. Enter the name without the apostrophe, you can change the name which is displayed later.
The password here can be anything you like (so long as you have the same password in both boxes!), you will not need to login with this password, it is only required if you wish to share SubAccounts.


Once your SubAccount is created, you are basically ready to go. When you make a post, there will be a drop down where you can select the SubAccount in use. If it's a quick reply, this drop down will be to the left of the post button. If it's a full post, the drop down will be at the top of the page.


To alter your SubAccounts displayed rank and avatar, you will need to login as this account. To do so, you need to use the SubAccounts block at the top left of the forum. In the drop down, select your desired SubAccount, this will log you in as that Character.


To change your avatar, go to the Forum Profile section of your profile. You can either use one from the gallery, or upload one.
To change your displayed rank, go to the Group Membership section of your profile. Select the rank you desire for the character, and set it as your primary group.
