Posting without your real name


Recommended Posts

Not convinced this still happens. I've tried this a few times in an attempt to find location of poster's selling items and could not find a real identity. Please check some recent members as I think this has possible occurred since the forum update. Please let me know the result.

Ian,

if you login and tap on the avatar/name you will see the real name of the member.

That was mainly the reason for my post. The forum used to give the option of checking the "real " name or at least the name used to register but this does not seem to be there now. Highly unlikely , but surely especially discussing the sale of items without a real name is less than perfect online?

You can now see the real name if you open the members profile. Its not shown on the hover card, you have to click on the member name or avatar and view the profile.

Even if you have the real name never rely on this as being safe. We have many forum members that are not MYA members so always ensure you follow the guidelines below.

Thank you Austin. And thanks to you ( and others) in keeping  MYA visible and well presented on the internet.

And shouldnt those using the advantages of the MYA forum to sell items also contribute to the cost by being a member?  

Possibly, it's something that we will discuss at council going forward. If the classifieds is restricted to MYA members only we would not be helping newcomers into our sport. Also boats come up for sale from non MYA members that would not appear hear at all if we get too restrictive. It's a tricky one and from experience difficult to get right.

If I or any other forum moderator can see an individual abusing the system we would remove their adds.
