Thank you Crucian.
So I thought I would try this thing out, I sent a gift to a website/RF4 forum member/player. I also sent them a pm/personal message via this forum.
Here is the members reply, sent to me via this forum pm/personal message:
"Thought I let you know since you was testing as if you never messaged I wouldn't have a clue who gifted it. They could do with adding a little more info of who gifted."
Just noticed this "you now have the opportunity to gift gold and premium to other players on the website" .
So I presume this only applies to standalone players, and not those on the steam version?
"To do this, check the box next to "Buy as a gift" and enter the username or email address of the desired player."
Should entering the RF4 username of a member who plays this game via steam work?
All I get this
