Hi all.

One of the few rules of the forum is that we use our real first and second names. The registration process only asks for a 'Username' but I have added a note to say that this must be a real name. It is also stated in the T&C's of the forum which must be accepted before you complete the registration form.

It seems that a lot of people miss this and register with nicknames etc? Ones that I can validate with website, company name etc I activate, and then send a PM or email to ask for the username to be updated. I see though that some still login and ignore the request and I simply don't have time to send constant reminders.

I am trying to come up with a more suited registration form but the forum host company does not yet allow me to edit the current form. I am looking at a third party registration form which I can use in place of the forumotion one.

Anyone who has registered in the last couple of weeks, and have not yet updated their username, please do so as I will have to otherwise delete the account.

It's a simple rule of the forum and one I think most appreciate the need for.

Thanks.
