Chat box info
I've noticed in the chatbox that whenever another player talks it adds their log-in name to the text line. As an RPer that is annoying to me. Is there any way to turn it off so I just see the character name when other players talk?

I don't believe you can.

Yes you can. It's in the chat settings. Click the button with 3 little ppl on it to the right of the chat line.

You can also right click on the chat window title and it will bring up Chat Settings too.

Groovy! It had not occured to me to look for a way to adjust that. Good question :)

As a note, people's log in names are supposed to be different from their @handles. Theoretically making it harder for people to access accounts using in game information.

I prefer the @handles showing, just in case multiple people have the same character name, and so that I can see the actual person talking. Many people use @handles when they post out of game to identify themselves, so I like 'em.
