Of course you have your "user groups".
These are great but are not what I'm after.

What I'm interested in are different flairs per category.
Say you have a Formula 1 node (board). In this board you want Formula 1 driver names to be available flairs (Lewis Hamiltion, Sebastian Vettel, Charles Leclerc,..).
A user could somewhere within that node select his/her flair. The flair would then be visible below the user's avatar only within that specific node.

Reddit example:

In my opinion this helps different nodes have different identities.
Say you have a GTA V discussion node: why not have flairs available like "Lamar" "Michael", "Trevor",..

Of course all flairs should be customizable with css in the admin backend.

You can achieve this with thread prefix?

From my knowledge, I don't think an add-on exists to get this done.

You could get something done using custom user fields. One user field per node, could get messy depending on how many nodes you have :).

From there you'd need to hard code in the user field using a conditional inside the post bit.

if forum node = 1, show this custom field for that user
if forum node = 2, show this custom field for that user


Again, rather messy and ideally would work best an add-on but this could work.

The thing is that the flair needs to be tied to the node, not the global forum per se and if you want to replicate the Reddit's flair functionality, they also allow some users to set their own flairs.

I think a custom mod is needed for this one.

Exactly. Although even better than a custom mod would be built-in functionality.

Why was this tagged as "Lack of interest"? I still believe this would be wonderful and I'm sure many would agree.
