Austin Vert (Greg) suggested a great idea...

Hi to all staff members,

I am inviting staff feedback on a suggestion i would like to put forward for a better, warmer and a more friendly Forum experience for all Forum members.

Since i have been a member of the Forum, i have posted and replied many times to all sorts of topics, and of course reached out and communicated with many Forum members. From my own personal experience, there have been many,many times when i wanted to respond to the person, and use their christian name, for a MORE personal, warm and friendly approach to the reply. A matter of respect if you like.

But the problem for me has been that I never went to the trouble of tabulating a list of first names of members as they have bobbed up along the way.  Therefore, I DO have trouble remembering members first names sometimes, and I find that somewhat embarrassing for me.:blush:

So my proposal is along the lines of setting up a special section in the FORUM area, that acts like a private reference library for any Forum member to access when needed to obtain a first name for their own usage.  The listings would simply show the Forum members official name like    Austin Vert --- Greg and be alphabetically listed.    

I realize that some Forum members would have a sensitivity to showing their first names in the library, so on that basis, participation would be non compulsory, leaving only the first names of members who would not mind their first names being put in the library.

(now what was your name again?):D

Greg.:)  (The warm and friendly guy):p  

So please make a post telling everyone your first name and one of the staff members will add you to the list below. ;)

Hello to all Forum members,

I recently came up with this idea for the Forum, because it's always a friendly way to greet people and use their first name if you want, when you have something to say.

Thanks Don and the Forum Staff for your support on deciding to implement my idea and make it a reality.

On that basis, i would encourage any Forum member to come forward and pop your first name right here on this thread, so we can build a quick reference library of member's first names for all members to use when you might have forgotten their first name etc.

If you feel a bit uneasy about giving your first name on the forum, you could always use a substitute first name like TK or Tp for example. But again, i would encourage you to put forward your real first name, as this Forum is run and conducted on the basis of being a genuine, friendly and respectful place where folks can connect up and have a great time. Friendship and an open friendliness is always fostered on this Forum and enjoyed.

So please DO drop the Forum a line and leave your first name here. It all helps the Forum to be an even more great place to hang out and enjoy!:)

So when you need to use the library ------- Click on FORUM at the top of the Home page,

then Click on WELCOME



then click on WHAT'S IN A NAME

then just leave your first name in a post.

For a faster way to get straight to the thread to leave your name, or to use as a reference, use this link ----------- http://www.7173mustangs.com/thread-what-s-in-a-name--22663

Thanks folks,


Mark pointed it out. You can also put your name in your signature so that it always shows up under every post. See this post where mine is.

That can be done in the user CP.

That way you remind everyone of your name with every post.

If you can't find it, drop me a message and I will change it for you.

I'm Midlife. You can call me Mid, you can call me Randy, but don't call me late for dinner or drinks!
