[Forum Request] Proper names for users of the forums
Dear all,

It's been a long-standing tradition of LDraw that proper names (personal and family name) should be made available. This is a request to all members of these forums to maintain this tradition.

This doesn't mean you cannot have a username. Many of us do. What it does mean is that your profile (access by Control Center->Edit My Profile) should contain at least one of your proper names and preferably both.

This also has a secondary benefit. It means that the Admins here can more easily identify likely link-spam candidates and delete them making everyone's life better. If we see someone who hasn't posted in a month or so and who hasn't filled in any details we'll know they're probably a spammer.

Thanks for your help,

Note: if you do not have your real name set, you should see a big, red banner at the top of every page asking you to do so. This is only a request, we can't force you nor will we. If you sign up and never post, we'll probably won't notice until we review the user list. However, don't be surprised if you find it set for you by one of the admins.
