    Selco and I want everyone to be safe and maintain their privacy while enjoying the forum. PLEASE DO NOT USE YOUR REAL NAME AS A USERNAME!!!

    If you’ve signed up under your real name, it’s easy to change. Simply go into your profile by clicking your name in the top right-hand corner. Then click Edit. Then type the name you’d like to use in the box and click “Save Changes.” BOOM – you’re done!

    Thank you!!!

    If you’re new double check this. I thought I was good then posted something and realized I wasn’t.

    If you have a ham radio license it’s not a good idea to post your call sign either.

    It is easy to find your real name and address in a database.

    Hi!  I just logged in for the first time. I see my real name in the upper-right corner where it says “You are logged in as Abraham Lincoln” <span style=”font-size: 80%;”>(sorry, that’s maybe not precisely what it says.)</span>  But when I signed up I provided a username which is not my real name.  My username is “Amras“.  Did I do this right? Is my realname visible, or are you just seeing “Amras” ?

    Now if we can find a avatar of a pink coconut, you would be all set!

    Hi just signed in for the first time and notice my picture is of me and  was wondering if I should change that as well as using another name MOMMA Smith.. Just thought it was weird to have a matching picture and not a matching name.  lol.  If I need to change it can someone please help me as to how to do so.  Thank you MOMMA Smith

    I have always used a fakename when signing up for things non financial or none of your business. So I hope to continue this.
