What i mean is the usual forum coding where you can edit the name in a quote, or make one up, doesnt seem to work.

If you mean the name at the top of the quote - Like the 'heHasRisen in the one above, that is standard practice to avoid/prevent wrong attribution of a quote - standard amongst all forum platforms AIUI.

PHPbb boards let you edit the tags.

I wasn't aware of that still being possible, but I haven't used a PHPbb board for about 10/15 years. I consider that bad practice to be honest, but maybe because I have been a mod on other forums (many years ago) where some riff-raff used to stir up trouble by doing just that.
