Why can’t I create a wolf name? It only shows my username.

In older episodes of the game, players were allowed to create different wolf names to use in multiplayer games, just like they could in singleplayer games. More recent versions of the game only allow players to use their forum usernames, which shows up as [YOUR FORUM NAME] when you create your multiplayer wolf. This feature was added in the first Survival of the Pack (Episodes 1 and 2) version of the game to make abuse reporting easier for players. This also allows each wolf to be distinct in name, so no one can try to impersonate another player by choosing the same name and wolf colors as another player in a game.
