Username in your RPGist profile
In respect of our users' privacy, the RPGist' RPG Looking for Group platform uses a customizable username as a form of identification instead of real names.
Currently, the Spellcaster Helper identifies users by name – provided by the login with Facebook or Google – when sharing character spell sheets with each other. When the app login system is replaced by the SSO with RPGist Accounts, not all registered users will have a name in our database: those who log in via social networks have their names filled in automatically; those who register with email and password are not required to fill in their names. Having access to usernames in this case solves 2 issues:
- no longer exposing users' real names
- they act as an unambiguous form of identification that is present in all users
And that's it for today. Good games!
