When a guy named Vex0men15, but with displayedname Vexomen sends me a pm or rank msg, his NORMAL name shows up, instead of the DISPLAYED name. Like this:

I don't know what might be the cause, but thanks looking into it.

This is a feature, private messages do not use displayednames to make them stand out more and prevent confusion, rank prefixes/colors are not shown either.

staff is a different case, it is not a private message, but more like a different chat channel, because players from all ranks are using it the displayedname is used, with rank prefixes/colors you know exactly who you are dealing with.

There are several places where fCraft shows players' names without formatting (rank prefix, rank colors, frozen/banned stars, or custom DisplayedName stuff). For example:
  • logfile entries
  • incoming and outgoing PMs
  • /me
  • rank chat

I would not consider real names in log files, but in other cases (pm, /me, rank chat) it's pretty much cosmetic. I suppose I could change it to show DisplayedName, but then it wouldn't stand out as much against other chat.
