    Naming Convention, Important please read.

    Hi All,

    Thank you all for signing up. At this time, I'd like to ask all the people that have signed up to either have their "First Name, and Initial" in your signature if you are not using your name as your alias.

    We will be periodically maintaining the system and purging names that do not have at least the first name in the signature.

    To edit your profile, click on your name in the top left corner, and click on edit profile. In the Signature box, add the required information.

    Thank You.

    We want to keep this a friendly place.

    Thank you Joe (that is your real name?) :-)

    I'll just add that another reason for this is that we occasionally meet in person and it can be awkward to not know a real name. We have all been there I think. In a totally virtual world it matters less. But we're also real here....

    If anyone would prefer to change their login name just let me know. I can change the name at the backend. You can PM me or hit the Contact Us page.

    Now, on with the show 8-)

    I forgot to mention that in your profile is a place for the Real Name. You should put your name there also. There are a few places (like Classifieds) that use the real name instead of the alias. Imagine calling for that set of coilovers, dialing a wrong number and asking "Is this Chunky Chicken?" :-D :-?

    Oops.

    ^^ Where in the profile is the real name field? I can't see it (maybe I'm blind?), but I have seen that on other vBulletin forums.

    This thread was from 10 years ago when SPDA was on different forum software. It was also in the club's infancy. I can alter your real name or alias for you. Alternatively, just put it in your signature.

    Hi Doug,

    I can change your login name, but I suggest using something like DougC if that's ok with you, I'll go ahead and do it, your password will remain the same, your login name will be DougC

    Let me know and I'll make the change.
