There appears to be a notable increase in the lack of imagination of members picking their user names.
I'll put the original first, and the 'sincerest form of flattery' after.
Deerman - The Deer Man
Flytie - Flytyer
Centralbeltstalker - Centralstalker
Venison17 - Venison16
Rick O Shea - Rick O Shay
Rangefinder - Rangemaster
It's made it quite difficult for me to read posts, and to understand from a glance whether the poster is someone who's posts I've been reading for years, or someone who recently joined and chose a remarkably similar user name.
Would it not be possible to give the members the opportunity to change to something more unique in order to facilitate the smooth running of the board?
There's also been confusion with Logins which have been deleted & chosen again at random by an unsuspecting member. Swede, Caprelous, 6.5x55.... would it not also be possible to withdraw user names that have an association left with them?
Just a question for JAYP,Sikamalk & CSI really!
