Please do not use other members' personal names

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sat Oct 29, 2016 10:45 pm

Even if their personal name is well-known to every member, please refrain from using any members' given name in posts. Thank you.

Can we make up names? I'm sure as hell not going to write out some of those long names...so they either remain nameless, or I'll make up a name.

Just to unnecessarily clarify, this means people's names in real life, the name on their birth certificate, the name their friends call them, whatever.

Suppose you don't know if its their name or no? It's just the name you knew they by on another forum. That's what happens most times...you just carry on because that's their identity to you.

Why do some people find certain instructions so hard to follow?....it's hardly rocket science to understand that people prefer not to be called by any name other than what they register with. Rolling Eyes

Nah...too long to type some of 'em.  I'll invent nicknames. If it's an name like syl, that's no problem. But a name like "whose your wolfie" can give you cramps. "Wolf" is good enough.

Initials or short names. Anything will do. A lot of people we know from other worlds. I've known wolf for nearly a decade, and it took me years to jump from Bee, his former name (lol...which was itself a nickname).

I tend not to worry about his name....I never respond to him.

How will we know someones REAL name unless THEY tell us????

Precisely. You only know them as you knew them in the past, and that's from them (or the forum on which you knew 'em).

Yes, but that is not what Ben is asking us not to do is it?

Jeez. I thought the opening post held the simplest of instructions and hardly needed a reply?

using name that are not their real name is fine
like whose your wolfie can be shortened to Wolf
veya_victaous can be shortened to veya etc
