Something that came up in another thread .....................

It would be great if all forum members used their real names instead of made-up 'usernames' please :z17

When we meet on the river bank ( or in the pub ) we use our real names ..... it simply makes sense to do so on here too :z16

To update your display name:

Please click on your name on the right hand side of the main dark blue menu and select 'Profile' from the drop down menu that appears.



Now click on 'Modify Profile' and select 'Account settings' from the drop down menu that appears.



Now enter your first name and surname in the 'Name' box ........ and then move down the page, enter your current password and click on 'Change Profile'.



Thanks in advance :z16
Best wishes
Mike

We are sitting at 1122 forum members ...... but how many of those are active members, possibly about 100, maybe less :z4

I'm not a numbers sort of guy ( ask my accountant  :oops ) and having 1100 in the members list makes finding folk hard work and can slow things down. I'm therefore going to heavily prune that membership list on a regular basis to reflect a realistic level of active members :cool:
