Feldgrau is implementing a new policy going forward.
Hence forth all new members joining the site will be required to provide their real name in order to register. User names will no longer consist of "PanzerAce39" but must represent a real person. In addition, all current users will, in time, be asked to come forward to myself or one of the admins in order to change your user name to your real name if you don't already use it as such on the site.
If there is a real or significant reason why you can not provide or use your real name as your user name on Feldgrau myself and the mods will give that serious consideration on a case-by-case basis. For all others, please contact myself or the mods and arrange to have your user name changed to your real name at some point in the coming days and weeks.
As we enter 2008 Feldgrau is going to concentrate more and more on serious research. We are also doing this to prevent spammers, hackers, trolls, and those not interested in legitimate discussion and debate from posting here. Real names will present a more professional, legitimate, civil, honest, and up front environment to engage in discussion.
As I said, if there are legitimate reasons why folks can not provide their real names they will be dealt with as needed.
I've been running this site for over 10 years and never once had an issue with using my real name on this or any other forum. I find it very unlikely anyone else will either. We ask that you consider this request in the spirit that it is being put forth and that you contact us to take care of it as soon as you are able.
