A lot of friends don’t know this site and sign on anon and I can make out who is who when the camera is on or when the microphone is on. However it’s impossible if they don’t do either.
I don’t want to force them to create an account. Instead when they log in if the default behavior was to ask them to set a nickname, it would make it much easier for me. Finding what to click to change the name is hard, so if the dialog always shows up if a random name is generated then it would be helpful. Not all users might want this so perhaps make a setting where people can enable the behavior?
