View player profile from transfer request

I don't know if this has been requested before but I went through several pages of this forum and there wasn't anything that I saw like it.

As a fleet admiral, I get the transfer requests in. The message basically just says "you have a tranfer request from "XXXXX" and buttons to accept or deny. I can see the name but it isn't clickable. If I go to the fleet screen and search for members, if the name is unusual enough, I may find them. However, looking for a Captain Picard who wants to transfer in is useless, and there is no way to respond to an incoming request directly from that message.

It would be helpful if that name in the request message could link you to the screen where you can review the player's level as well as a way to DM them.

Additionally, it would be helpful when someone is trying to join a fleet to have the admiral identified. From the requesting perspective, they have no idea who the request is going to unless you have already chatted with them in-game, or via one of the other recruiting methods (forums, Discord, Reddit, etc.)

    I'm bumping this because I would like to add to the request. Instead of linking to a standard DM that often disappears if the other player doesn't read it quickly enough, I would like to be able to send a "message" that will stay in their inbox until they read it.

    This is a great idea! I lose conversations because they simply vanish

    Once again, any time I have a single opening in the fleet, I get a bunch of join requests in-game. We've been around for a while so I don't ever just push "accept" as there are things to discuss.

    But, when you have names like these two that i just got in the last little bit, it's impossible to find them in-game to even have a small chat.

    I no longer attempt to recruit from within the game. That's too bad because clearly, some people would like to join. If you are showing me their name, why can't it be a link to their profile?

  • I'm not an Admiral, I've only been playing for just over a year so have nowhere near enough experience to do so but maybe one day I will be and after reading all your comments and seeing the pictures I completely agree with you. Something that should be straightforward seems to be a nightmare. Hopefully one day if I promote myself, this would all be sorted out. Good luck
