Please use a real name and present yourself once you membership is activated.
All Ogfor users are asked to use a real name as their display name, with a first and last name, and maybe more, separated by spaces. Obviously fictitious names may be locked out. By "real name", we mean either your own actual, personal name, or a name that at least looks like it could belong to a real person. No names of celebrities or fictional characters. No cute nicknames like "Goodgarden" or "Hacker King". No joke names like "Adam Baum" (atom bomb) or "Justin Case" (just in case). No names with embedded numbers or other unorthodox punctuation like "John897" or "Andre_Painchaud". No names of companies - just people.
This does not mean that if your formal name is Michael Jingleheimerschmidt that you cannot use "Mike Schmidt". You can even use an initial or initials for the first name if you like (but not the last).
It is possible that you are uncomfortable about using your real name on the web. This happens. In that case, feel free to display a fictitious name. Just make it look like it could be real - like "Al Swensen", "Roberta Cheeny", "Anand Singh" or "Xiao Wu". And if you do use a fictitious name, don't announce that it's fictitious. We want to encourage use of real names as much as possible here, so please don't undermine that goal.
