    Re: Non members

    Well, it seems that no almost no-one else shows their name?

    I must be honest, this is getting on my nerves. It's all too easy for those guys who have been living with forums for ages. But I find this forum particularly difficult to use. I'm not new to computing but new to forums.

    Isn't there an option to show/not show your real name? And if not, why not. I don't like to think that all of my messages can be viewed by the entire world. I would rather be private. If this is not so then will regretfully never use the forum.

    So how do all the others hide their name but show as "members"??

    My view is that it's not very user friendly.

    To be honest this is my third year, and I have only been to one rally, and a few meetings but thats enough for me to know that this one make club was something I felt was worth supporting with my membership fee, hopefully I will get more time this year and money to do a few more rallies.

    As far as I am aware, names on posts can only be viewed by paid up members of the club. Unless, I suppose, someone decides to put their name in the signature block?

    A wizard will be along shortly to give the correct answer

    You can't see our names because you aren't signed in as member. This is because within the club, all posts, like letters to the Quin, are owned by their author. No hiding behind nome de inter web. Real names only. Guests however cannot see our real names because it's none of their business. Why would you want to post anything on the site that you would not wish to be attributed to you?
    My advice would be to never ever post anything that you couldn't say to the intended audience face to face, and bare in mind that people are listening. Not that different from chatting in a pub really.

    Everybody who shows as a club member has their name appear in their posts.

    However these names only show to other registered members which is why you cannot see them as you are not registered as a member.

    The names are not visible to non members.

    Hope this helps
    Rob.

    Yes, as Baza said, this thread is for non members to express why they have not joined the club, not for existing members thank you
