Forum users -- read this!

Here's a note from our Forums admin:

Please take this message as your two week warning that the NEFA Forums will begin the process of switching over to your real names as posters rather than usernames/nicknames that you may have entered when you first registered. Your login ID's however, will stay as is.

> More info

This comes after a strong discussion about this topic late last year when last year's BOD took this issue up and voted to change to realnames 10-3. The conversation continued into this year and the new BOD also voted in favor of this change 12-1.

We have added a field under your name for you to enter a preferred nickname if you so choose to hopefully appease as many of our members as we can. It is time for us to begin enforcing our user agreements; anonymous posting on the NEFA discussion board will not be tolerated any longer.

Once we make the change to all real names, ALL POSTS, PREVIOUS & FUTURE, WILL APPEAR WITH THE NAME OF THE PERSON THAT POSTED IT.

Until our changeover begins in two weeks, posters really have one of three choices to make:

1. Register a new login with your real name and the "unfavorable login ID" will be deactivated. If you choose this option and want to use the email attached to the "unfavorable login ID", just change the email address before creating the new ID.

2. Get busy searching your nickname ID and editing out anything you don't want attached to your real name. We can give you some time to do this but there will be a deadline established.

3. Stop posting here.

Is there a way to just delete all my old messages -- say anything before January 2011.... That would be the easiest approach to this change-over for most....I don't know if there is a filtering method or what?? Also, will all the previous contacts who might have sent me a message in 2010 be transferred into new names...or is that old contact data just lost now because of the "code-names" going away??
