How do I have reader chose a name?

How do I have the reader chose their own name instead of me choosing one for them? I know there are other threads of it but im not grasping what they mean. I also dont know everything about scripting.

For letting readers choose their name, the code is:

input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME)

label first_name_input
input What’s Your Name?|What’s Your Name?|Done(NAME)
if (NAME is “”) {
NARRATOR
You do need a name.
goto first_name_input
} else {
continue
}

I’ll put it into steps:
First: Go onto your main character’s thing where you change appearance and change “Display Name” to NAME and press save
Steps
Second: Go onto the episode you are making and put this:

label choosing_name
NARRATOR
What is your name?

`input What is your name? | What is your name? | Done (NAME)

                 NARRATOR
          Your name is [NAME], is this correct?

choice
“Yes”{
NARRATOR
Then let’s get started [NAME] :wink:
}
“No, I messed up.”{
goto choosing_name
}

So if I write “name” and put it in brackets, then whatever name the reader wrote will show up
wherever I put “[NAME]” on their device?

Yes. :blush:. But if you use the character’s name like say you have the main character named Alice but you put NAME in the display spot you can still use Alice to code but it will show up as whatever the character named them.
