Our First Name Under Avatar

I was thinkng of having everyones first name under our avatar. Like this we can call each other's name instead of user name like 4dr-ls, gcobalt and so one. Makes it better and makes the forum more of a family oriented place.

eh, i dont like it.
good idea, but wont be very useful.

by calling people by their username, people can relate to who they EXACTLY are.
if someone has a name like "nosfuratu9" and you call him "mike", no one is going to relate "mike" to "nosfuratu9", especially new people.

and when we say mike, you know how many mikes there are? lol
i voted bad idea.

lets stick to saying, gcobalt05, hailcesar, 4dr-ls. easier to put the username with the car IMO.

wHatever new member signs up their first name will automatically will be by their avatar. It will no be an option for them. Just like having a username

Well usually when some one has to call someone by name it's usually in the same thread and within a couple posts behind. It shouldn't be that hard or cunfusing.

Agree. With a username like mine, it's a no-brainer. I think the first-name basis would work well here. Not sure if ADMIN can do it or not... There are different limits to different types of forum software.
