You may or may not have noticed that my name has changed just a bit.  What you now see is my real name.  No more hiding behind a shortened portion of my name or even a screen name.  Just my name.  That is after all who I am. 

Spam is on the rise.  We have taken measures to reduce the spam registrations on this site that have helped dramatically.  However, I can imagine that these measures will not last forever.  Many of the other sites have made the move to real names only.  I fear we will need to make this move as well in the future.  For now I am only asking that you change your screen name to real names on a voluntary basis. 

Won't you join those of us who have already made the move to complete honesty?  Won't you use your real name instead of hiding behind a screen name?  If you have questions, send me a PM with any questions you may have.  I'll be glad to discuss it with you.  And remember, this is purely a voluntary action at this point.  No need to feel forced.

Done.  All you need to do is go into your profile and change the name on the first page.  You won't lose any posts, ranking, or anything else.  You might want to sign your posts with your old screen name until people recognize your real name.   Roll Eyes Roll Eyes Cool Cool

I really like this.  I prefer to start my posts with the persons name rather than a screen name.  It also helps keep people more civil.  I use dbonertz because my name is Dale Bonertz.  Thanks for requesting this.

For those of you who want to change your name in the gallery, PM Rev or I.  We need to make the change on an Admin level.  Please include old gallery name and we will match your Forum name.

Done.  Your screen name was already your real name, so no change was needed.  But thanks.
