Show real name optional

I'm terrible at names and its worse when I just met them.An idea off of myspace..An option where we can put or real names under/next to our screen name..Otherwise " (screen name), it was good riding with you!Lets do it again.."

You can put whatever you want under your screen name, but I wouldn't suggest you put your real name.

The decision is up to the individual. Personally, I think if you really want to put your full name somewhere, that you have plenty of space to do so. User title, Signature, etc. Why make it any more cluttered than it is, especially for an option so little will use?

Hence optional and you wouldnt have to put your whole name.A first will do.

Then I guess what it comes down to is which is more important to you, a catchy phrase or a name?

...been this kinda forum since I was 13. Consider for a moment, how many Bob's, Steve's, Mary's etc that I've met, much less can remember.

Then there's.. Neva, Chizinks, DaveC, Cali(gone), Tempset, Jester, Pester, azylum and 'The old *****'. <shrug> My mental filing system tracks alias's better than it does full names.
