While you sign in on this side you will be asked for a “user name” (your “login name” or “nick”) and your real name.
Please provide your real name.
Showing our real names has multiple benefits:
- This is a real world endeavor. You can trust in relationships, which you build up here.
- People who know you already do not have to remember your nickname.
- Less difference between insiders and outsiders.
- Discourse will search your nick and your real name when you enter “@” in the editor. This makes it easy to invite individual people to a conversation.
Please add a photography of your face to your account.
This will help the community to remember each other, when we meet in real life.
