Real names!
« on: April 03, 2010, 01:06:08 PM »
Hey guys M2 posted a thing a long long time ago about removing the fake SN bullshit. I think we need to bring this back and put your real names up on here because on APK we are a big family and it shows respect and trust. You don't have to put your full name if you are insecure about your name getting put out on the internet.

Example:

SN: Imsocool
examples to change to -

-John Smith
-J. Smith
-John S.

It helps identify people and im sure most of the veterans on the board would appreciate it as well =D

Not only does it show respect and trust, but it also makes people more liable. I've been all for it since it was first brought up.

Why is this here again?

There are times when you want to break down and rage at the heavens. Don't. Stay calm, and let the emotions flood in, accept them and then rise above them. Never dwell. Don't fear or worry. Anything worth thinking about is worth talking about. And... Good luck.

Because we've noticed an increase of names like

"CoolTraceur"
and
"XxXParkourLOLXxX"

When traceurs know others on a first name basis, they're more likely to help you because they're more comfortable around you. Its like going to a gym. When people ask your name, you don't say "Oh hay, I'm XPxKxRunnerX". People aren't THAT socially awkward. If you're worried about people knowing your name, sorry to disappoint you, but I could find out more than you would want me to know just by Googling your email address

For Example, When you Google mine (Andrewwilsonnn@gmail.com), you come across a huge list of places I've registered to, sites I frequent, etc.

That's cool and scary at the same time.

Then I googled my own and got nothing. Felt pretty 1337.

Mine didn't come up either Andrew. But yeah, it gets annoying. Especially if you might attend a jam and recognize that person from APK and call them (I'm gonna use Andrew's example...):XxXParkourLOLXxX they don't listen to you and you feel retarded, but then you'd realize it's the other person's fault because they never told you their name.

Eh... "The Ninja" is pretty much your nickname, so I don't think it's too bad.

So Devin, what's this about roofs in your siggy?
