Cant see displayed name

Question

Hi all,

Im using Firestorm and suddenly I stopped being able to see the displayed name of a specific person, while others can see it normally.

Any ideas why this is happening?

Someone once asked me (on another account) how  I was able to hide my login name and only show a display name. I explained that I had never used a display name.

Point is that everyone else can see this displayed name...

Did you maybe use "Rem DN" in Contact Sets to remove that avatars display name?

I was trying to set a sound just for this person when coming online, so I was playing around with the settings.

Btw, I think this is not possible, right?

Actually, maybe you can - I don't have time to test this now, but I think it will work.

Create a new contact set just for that person.
In the settings for that contact set enable online notifications for that set only.
Then in Preferences -> Sound & Media -> UI Sounds 2, tick "Friend comes online" & input the UUID of the sound file you want to play.

This also might be the golden opportunity to give people the names you think they deserve!

”Igor....I’ll call you Igor.......”

Its not a bug, it’s a fun-feature :-)
