    Many of our members have usernames that are different from their real names. For example, there's no secret that Luckypenguin's real first name is Nic. I created a "Real Name" field in the user profile, so that if you'd like to share your real first name with us, you can enter it there and it will be displayed in your posts. I think it's a nice thing to do, but it's completely optional.

    To add your real name to your profile, go to the bottom of this page: https://www.photographerslounge.org/profile.php?do=editprofile

    Great idea - certainly much easier than trying to search my memory, or my cheat sheet.:tongue:

    Since 2nd grade, I've heard Luke Skywalker... a couple years later it was Luke Duke (from the Dukes of Hazard) and intermittently from people with impeccable taste in films I've been called "Cool Hand".

    But as my Dad always said, "Call me anything except late for dinner".

    Good Idea,

    Jason.

    (What's funny is some folks think that Djarum is my real name. I use this "alias" on lots of forums).

    And as you just showed us Andy, if anyone wishes to make it really easy - just go up to the drop down menu of Forum Actions, choose Edit Profile....and look down at the last entry option, I believe, and you can type in your "real" name.:biggrin:

    Ray, you were one of my favorite basketball players to watch growing up. And I loved your bits in the movie "Airplane!"

    No secrets here, mine is a very Dutch name and I could not really think up anything different actually, there are enough logins and passwords to remember in our digital age, so I thought I would just stick to my real name and hope I could at least remember that one...:)
