"What's your name?"

Postby virtualTune » Tue Aug 02, 2011 9:46 pm

Recently there have been many new people entering the forum, and almost always one of the top 5 questions is "what's your real name?"

Honestly, I think it really doesn't matter. I mean, I don't know Arzoroc's name. I know Maffe's name cuz we are close friends but that isn't important for the forum. Obviously David feels fine when ppl know his first name...

What i am trying to say is, people create usernames as an alias so the "rest of the world" doesnt know their real name. So I suggest that in the future, instead of asking for the person's name, we ask for a Nickname, especially if their username is long or hard to spell like "Arzoroc's."

To me, for example: I am vT if it comes to this forum. The vT in this forum is far different than the real vT, *looks at Maffe* ! I don't want to mix two worlds, and i feel that we might push ppl a bit into telling us their name, even if we just ask...

Just a thought...

I don't like putting too much of my personal identity online (*cough* facebook *cough*), and my first name is part of that. If, for example, Maffe would come to visit Germany, I'd tell him my address and invite him for a visit, but I really don't think that anybody has to know these facts about me. It comes down to personal preference, but I don't like it.
When it comes to a nickname for the longer nicknames, my real name isn't shorter than "Arzoroc", so that wouldn't help you out, and "Baum" is the same length as "Arzo", so if you think that 4 letters is short
enough, go with one of them.
Now that I think about it, I know Cyril's, Clexzor's, Maffe's and devvv's first names. And obviously Willy's, Mike's, Rod's, David's etc. But I really don't care about those names to be honest, and as long as I haven't got anything to do with that person, a nickname is perfectly fine for me.

I don't mind people knowing my first name at all. I just use a different name online because I don't like my first name. lol.

Not a house (own house = 200k + :o), it's some rooms in a house that you can rent.

Because studying > Poor guy > Small flat with some other studying people > party hard > invite Maffe.
