    Hi All,We are fighting the spam bandits like mad over here. It would be really helpful if you would go into your account profiles and change your user name to your real name, if it isn't already. We'd appreciate it if you'd use the format of FirstnameLastname; like CarolenaNericcio. I have to delete accounts and posts when the name looks like Spambanditbuyviagra.Thanks!

    hi Carolena,I'm trying to change my info, to add my last name as requested, but it is requiring passwords... which I do not recall receiving, or choosing.  I never got a confirmation email that I was added to the group.Suggestions?Thanks 🙂xorhi

    @rhi: It's the same password you are using for logging in. 🙂

    Rhi,We are still figuring out this system as well! Forget the password issue and just update your screen name (the second field in account settings) so we can see who you are. Sorry about the second email you were supposed to receive, we didn't know about that either.Thanks for your support as we get this engine started!

    Hi Rhi, when you register you have to choose a password (and enter it twice to confirm it) so you must have chosen one. Unfortunately you do have to re-enter your password to change any of your account info. If you can't remember it, then you can get sent a password reminder - trouble is, you have to log out to do that. So log out. Then click LOGIN. It will then take you to another screen where you are supposed to enter your username and password. At the bottom of that screen is a link saying "Forgot your password?" When you click on that you can enter either your username or your email address to get your password emailed to you.  😉I hope that helps!Anne

    I can see that it's for really practical reasons but if you don't mind me putting my 2c in… 🙂Just thought I'd mention that I love having a pseudonym on other (usually nonBD) forums, using real names can make me waaay too shy and feel like I have to measure my words so much there's not much being expressed! I can see how this will make people 'play nice' but... also might mean less meaningful discussion, or only really assertive people's opinions in the mix?P.S. So happy this forum is now available.. hopefully get back to the tribe.net days!! 🙂

    We requested this to help us identify spammers (having to enter a name, rather than random letters/numbers, which is what we were getting) and to help us identify those who are Sister Studios (checking our lists for name/email info).  Just trying to make our jobs easier.  🙂
