Push for real names on the forum

Post  Aneurin on Wed 22 Oct 2014, 09:29

Came up last night - it would be useful if people used real names on the forum...

Honestly my name is Aneurin - it says it on my birth certificate and everything...

Although it could get even more confusing with all the Paul's, Mike's and Steve's

Yes! And photos!

(NB: I would claim that from 'paulyg' it is pretty clear what my name is, so I don't plan on changing it... particularly as t'other Paul has seniority and so gets 'Paul' so I'd just be changing it to PaulG which seems to minor a change as to not be worth bothering with) :-)

I already did it. I don't have a cool name like Anadin though, so you'll have to make do with plain, old Paul.

Fine by me, although I think there may already be a few Toms. I could be TomC or maybe BeardyTom to be a bit more descriptive. I really should get round to putting a picture on as well.

I also feel the need to apologise to Ellis - He has been coming for months and I still can't remember his name...

Ooh finally. This is beautiful.
Before I read this, I was thinking, "Who's this Paul? We don't have any other Pauls."
I think names like beardytom are fine, arguably better, as they add a descriptor as well. For myself and Aladdin it's not really necessary as you aren't gonna confuse us with anyone else with the same name.
