We’ve updated our Terms of Service to now include the following text, under Section 1:
"You must use your real name to register an account. Anonymous accounts are not allowed, nor are accounts registered under a false name. You may not share an account with someone else. Each person using this service should have their own, personal account. Older accounts, created before the move to the Discourse forum software in November of 2016 are not grandfathered under this rule. If you’re using such an older account under a false name or no name, please change your account preferences immediately to reflect your real name. Please note that you are still free to use whichever username you want, as long as the “Name (Your full name)” field is filled out correctly.
If you feel your personal safety could be compromised by using your real name, please apply to one of the admins for permission to use a pseudonym."

If you have any questions or concerns about this change in policy, or would like help in changing or adding your full name to your profile, please either reply to this topic or PM (send a personal message) to either @Nick or @Gunnar.
Your continued use of this Website indicates your acceptance of these Terms of Service.
Thank you for understanding!
