Maybe I'm just an Olde Farte (well, no maybe, I am), but....

I sure wish folks would just use their real names here.
Personally, I think the nickname thing is sort of high-schoolish.
Just first names would be fine with me - makes it seem like I'm talking to a real person.

Yep, gotta agree.

My username on a couple forums is my initials - KDN. Then, I just went right for kirkn. It DOES get cumbersome talking to "ONEBADCB200" or something.... :D

But, even then, I just sign my posts:

My name is Jonathan. Or Jon. Or Woody.

I think the only problem with a first name only thing is when forums get huge and someone refers to "Jon"... it can be very non-specific.

Honestly, I'm a little indifferent to the whole thing.

I'm Steve. But since there are usually other Steves on the forums I frequent I just go with Mope. From Mope Head. Yes, I also have a moped addiction. Clever huh? Thank you, I'll be here all week. :D

Not suggesting anyone give up their nickname or login name - just to sign your posts with a real name.

I'd feel funny if I walked into a pub, and everyone called me "Brown Bomber" :? , so "Allen" will do.

Sorry Bill....Both my uncle and I were named Rex after either a German Shepard or a Palomino and never really knew which. I've been Blue for quite some time a nickname that has a lot to do with being a Biker and nothing to do with forums or the internet. Liked the music btw. Best ~ Blue

GB or Bird here :D

People call me that because it's shorter than my name, and frankly my name stinks. My username is from my middle name and my dog.

So everyone here can call me GB, Bird, Birdy, B, G, Mr. Ballinger, or whatever I deserve to be called ;)

GB :mrgreen:
