Hi,

why I can't submit a topic in general forum?
What need I do?


Thank you!

Hi you all.

This is directly to forum managers (Robert and son on).

I just arrived to this community, but I have my real data in here.
However, my real first name is often misspelled or read by foreigners (Agostinho) so I got used to being known for a short abbreviation of my *real* name, which is much simpler, I like it, and most people like it too, specially non Portuguese people like most of you. Smile
The short name is Agos.
I would like to use it here too.
But will that be possible, whilst conforming to your forum rules?

I think it should...

Thank you!

Cheers,
Agos

Yes that's fine. The aim on the naming policy is to instill a
friendly discourse amongst the community by encouraging use of human
names rather than user id's that resemble random number generators or
are deliberately abrasive.

Cheers,
Robert.

Hi Agos,

We can change your name from "Agostinho Silva" to "Agos Silva", if you like so. However we can not just remove the last part of your name, because we should stay fair in respect to other people. The main reason, why everybody is asked to have both names, is that this forum is connected to the mailing list. Forum came almost 10 years after the mailing list, so the most community members were/are concentrated around the mailing list. The main contributors and authors of OSG are also prefer to use mailing list except of the forum.

Usually the communication in the mailing list is done through mail clients, which are set up to put realname in the from header. So the community is used to know both names of a person who is acting on the list. Forum introduced some kind of anonymity (nicknames except of real names) which was not that well accepted in the community. Hence we decided to force every forum user to follow the same netiquette rules as established over the last years during the mailing list age.

I hope you and other people will understand that.

best regards
Art

Hi Robert,

I don't agree with that. Maybe you remember the discussion half year ago about using of the nicknames or first name parts only in the forum. The finally decision was to force every user to have both parts of the name in his profile. If user wished to have some kind of anonymity, he could use any pseudonym which sounds plausible except of his real name.

So it is ok to change the first name from a longer version to some shorter one. However it is still not ok to just to use the first part of the name. Or if we allow it for one user, then we have to allow it for everybody, otherwise it is unfair in respect to others.

cheers,
art

Perhaps a mis-understanding... I was OK'ing the use of shorten version
of Argos first name.

Robert.

Exactly, you got it Robert! Smile
A bit of a misunderstood, but perhaps it was my fault.

I don't mind at all the use of my last name.
And I also don't mind having my full name stored in the forum Id database.
It's just that I would prefer to identify myself and be known just by Agos. (without the r Wink, because I'm no mythical beast eheeheh )

But I don't mind that, for reasons of security or clarity, or whatever is the rule in here, anyone can check my profile and see my full name, if that's important.

So, is that ok with you?
I see the practical point of Art, and I might do that, but if it is possible to do what I just proposed, I think that leaving my full name, for formal reasons, but using the short name (as Art does to sign his messages, for instance) will subscribe even better your ideas of "real" names, don't you agree? Smile

And thanks for answering.

I think there should be a new thread where new members can introduce themselves. If there is any as such, I can't find it.

Hi everyone, specifically forum managers!

I am new in forum once I have been doing my baby steps with OSG.

I have been trying to solve a problem I am facing within an application I'm developing but since I couldn't find any solution I though it might be a good opportunity to start my activity here, in forum.
I have read the conditions of approval as a recognized member, concerning about real names, and I think I am fulfilling all the requirements though I'm still not seeing my posts and topics approved.

I would really know what I am doing wrong so I can be able to have some activity in forum.

Grateful for any clarification!

Cheers,
Jorge d'Alpuim
