FR: Vice Marshal title appearing in signature

Title: Vice Marshal title appearing in signature

Details: Right now its impossible to know who is the VM unless you check the army page. So it makes way to awkward situations where you see some knight sending orders and not knowing he is the VM, thus not paying much attention to it.

Benefits: It will clearly show the VM title in the signature so people will be more inclined to follow the orders coming from him. And it makes for an extra title on the simple knights of the realm.

Possible Downsides/Exploits: None I guess, might look crappy on people with many titles.

Or at least appear in letters sent to the particular army he is Vice Marshal of.

I would rather it show in all signatures, as it was at first. The crazed concerns of back then are no longer applicable. And it's really, really confusing to deal with a bunch of anonymous vice-marshals when coordinating with other armies, especially allied ones (but even domestic).

On a related note though religion ranks no longer show either.

This is not a feature request but a bug due to the Message Attachment System update.
VM title was supposed to show only when writing to the army.

Expanding it to ALWAYS is something Delvin or Vita would have to approve.

Religion ranks is a similar, known, bug. (http://bugs.battlemaster.org/view.php?id=9288)

Well, making it visible to everyone is a feature request, since it hasn't been that way since the early days of the new army system.

And I'm saying that it will be appearing in the signature when VM is writing to his army. Whenever someone gets around to solving the bug.

It was not clear to me if Shepard was aware of this bug, and simply opened this FR to extend it to ALL messages (I could see merit), or if you simply chose to highjack his thread and squeeze in a little something you want for yourself ;-)

To be clear, I would be perfectly fine with showing it on all messages.  :)

Eh, well we were discussing it on Discord and I told him to bring it up here.
