To clarify, there is a difference between your forum username and the real name you are being asked to provide. If you go into your User CP, and choose Edit Profile, you will see there is a field called "Real Name". It is visible only to Administrators.

Although, we certainly will not discourage users who want to change their usernames to their real names. :)

Ken,

I agree with you. I think we should also encourage people to make some posts to tell the difference between a person and a "board troll"

I did some math and came to this conclusion: 6030 of our 9314 registered users have not made any posts. That means about 65% of the ProDJ Community is inactive as far as posts go.

I hope my math was right. It seems like a high number.

My screen name IS my "status".

There was a time, I think, when many of us used our real names.

Wow . . .

I can't believe it's been almost two years since I stopped in here!

I see a lot of the same old faces are still hangin' around . . .

This is probably due to the number of people who sign up, lurk for a week or two and never come back. I went for six months or so without visiting and went from a senior member to a junior member in the process. I also don't mind a little anonymity, I had some unsolicited advice sent my way at one point which I didn't appreciate which is part of the reason for my absence.

My name is Jeff Murray
I live in Las Cruces, New Mexico
New mexico is a state, not a different country.
I am a mobile DJ - I charge a high fee
I do not have a website
I also own a pest control company.
I have been looking on these boards for many years but was unable to post because they would not accept my yahoo email address. I am soooooo happy to be able to contribute now that all has been fixed. Glad to get that off my chest.
Now you know everything about me. Does everyone feel better now???

I've sent prospective clients links to other DJ's sites when recommending them, (I get calls for many places out of my area), and I normally find their site from their posts here at ProDJ.
One of my June 27th clients (Chuck W.) that I've booked was a referral from a young single-op DJ company in Pennsylvania that frequents these boards.

I just spent the last ten minutes looking through my notes from Chuck's phone convo and google trying to find out what the name of his company was, I feel terrible because I would really like to give him proper credit and thank him RIGHT NOW in this post... all remember was that he had the same website layout as http://www.justoutstandingentertainment.com/. He had a really cool blog too.

Anyways posting your backlink has more perks that just SEO.

I prefer that online conversations be kept online - hence no profile means you are not invited to contact me outside of this board. What's wrong with that?




Trolls are people too. Seriously, you should be able to do your job based solely on the content of the character, not the color of the profile.
I completely agree. Some people on this forum know my real identity, but for the most part I like my anonimity, which is my right. Some people wont take me seriously because of the lack of profile. I'm fine with that. I'd rather converse with those that judged me onthe content of my posts rather than the lack of personal information.

On the concept of full disclosure and not hiding or anything...

I'd like to change my user name to Dave Miller

Can a mod or administrator handle that for me?

Thanks,

Test of my new profile. Well Thanks to this post I now have a picture with my profile. I'll play with the other features and see what happens. I've always wanted to have pictue and signature, but wasn't successful with my first attempt to set these up. I guess this post was a bit of a success. Thanks for the post Ken.

Hey Bill...wihtout quotes, it looks, at first, like you're asking to be changed to Dave Miller...LOL!

Evan,

YOU cannot change it, WE can...you have but to PM Bill, Me or any Moderator with what you'd like it changed to.

This keeps people from playing musical nametags to confuse things!
