Matt Watts

yo

You scared me for a second. I am a friend of somebody named Matt Watts that I met randomly in some political group on Facebook. I thought the world was really that small. But I suppose its all and well now that I know of two Matt Watts's on Facebook.

I get a friend request from a random Matt Watts once a year at least.

Okay so I joined the OCR group on Facebook, but I don't know anybody by their real names.

This should probably go in off-topic huh?

Perhaps we should add "Real Name" as a user profile field; it'd be optional, obviously, but for things like this, very helpful...

Thoughts?

I know my friend criticizes OCR all the time because of how 'impersonal' it is. He feels that you can't have meaningful conversations when referring to someone only by their online moniker. Of course, who cares what he thinks...

My point is, having the option to include your real name seems like a good idea to me... and would appease the naysayers...

Oh, Decoy Octopus, you are always so correct.

That's a hella good idea. It'd be cool if there was an option to display it under your handle as well. ie:

Suzumebachi

Tyberius Hunter Guenley

Totally optional though.

Just as an FYI, this is a limitation of vB and, as I understand it, would grant the compo admins a lot of additional privileges they don't need and probably shouldn't have, otherwise I would've already done it.
