Though I don't mind people knowing what my real name is, (it's not exactly a secret) I must agree with Casey on this one. Even if you know people's real names, please refer to them by their forum names. It makes it easier for people who don't know their real names to follow along and it prevents all those problems down the road that I won't talk about. Please edit your previous posts to say people's forum names.

This is an administrative decision that I've been contemplating and it is non-negotiable. It's meant to protect both the community and myself from problems in the long run and, that said, I will enforce this rule.

Thanks,
~Drack

Edit: I've modified the forum rules to reflect this as well.

Man that bums me out a bit, I always enjoyed being able to refer to people as such. But in the future I wil observe it.

Also drack, does this include the welcome and hellos thread, or is it all inclusive?

I would prefer it if there was no public way to link a person's real name to their forum name unless they themselves declare it. If you want to talk in PM's about it that's ok and if someone says "Oh my name is Richard" that's ok. But even if a name is well known, it still makes it easier to follow posts if you use people's forum name.
