    Usernames and real names

    I've been meaning to post this for a few weeks but it seems especially relevant if some new people come onboard the forum... Just my 2 cents but it would be nice if people include their real name as part of their profile and/or their signature. Or at least their first name. It's all well and good to be creative with usernames but we're all friends here (I hope!) and I'd like to know who I'm dealing with.
    Thanks,
    Roy

    I already did that because I knew most people would not know who I was. But on that note, I am working to get that functionality added to the postbit.

    That is just a simple template change - or even simpler - adding a required profile field. =)

    Thats a good idea roy for now I will just put my name in my signature.

    Bobby can you change my screen name (NotoriousSway) or do I need to just create a new one?

    Yeah, I'm still learning the VB thing. The profile fields should be there now. I attempted to add the coding to the postbit and it wouldn't take for some reason, but we technically have a guy for that.

    These are just my two cents, take them as such.

    Bump.
    Just a reminder of my friendly suggestion from a while back. Seems like there's quite a few folks on here with usernames that I don't recognize. It's your call if you want to remain anonymous but I feel like we're all friends here and it's easy to add your name as part of your signature.
    Thanks,
    Roy
