Creating a nickname is the first step in chat.

You can begin chatting without going through this process. Ares will assign you a name like anon (short for anonymous) ending in a few random characters. Now if you’re not complaining, then this would be your chat nickname. This gets you in alright but would not give you anyone a hint to recognize you by.
