i tried to join this forum this morning and for some reason it won't
to join because my name isn't a real name. it seems real enough to me
but it won't allow me to register. anyone else have this trouble with
Novascroller is your real name? You need to know the genesis of SMC to
understand the requirement. The original people populating that forum
(I was one of them) were evacuees of another forum that disbanded. One
of the strict requirements of that forum was real names. It probably
never occcured to any of the founders (nor did it to me) to change the
policy. It's a good one. It's surprising how keeping out a little
anonymity ensures a lot of civility.
Anyway, Novascroller sounds made up to me, and I'm sure it did to
them, too (Graham sounds real enough, though). Why don't you drop a
line via the backchannel to one of the moderators and negotiate a
resolution. If Novascroller isn't your real name you'll have to cough
up your real one if you want to play there. If it is, it shouldn't be
difficult to prove it and I'm sure the SMC folks will accept it.
I am a member of SMC and it is a GREAT forum.
Make sure you are using both a real first name and last name. The system
will not permit a "one" name approval for membership.
i.e.: John Smith-acceptable
Look forward to seeing you there.
