Hi Bram and everyone else. I have just joined RD and have been issued my licence (many thanks). I have a question that I am sure has arisen before regarding the use of real names. I totally accept that this is the forum and sevrer policy to which i will abide (my first race is tomorrow), however I am wondering why this is so? I realise it is to promote fair driving but would it not also be possible to this by associating a nickname with the real name in the forum. For example. On AC i use my nickname TAM Zak (used to be redlinezak), but to enabe me to race in the RD servers i must change it to my real name. Whilst this is not a problem as such, when i then race elsewhere i must (or choose) to change it back as many many people know me from my nickname which i have used for over 20 years on various forums and games etc. Also it would mean that should someone whom i have raced in RD servers comes across me in a public or other lobby they will not necessarily know it is me. If the chosen nickname was associated publicly with the real name in these forums then would the incentive to still be clean not still be present but still allow users to continue using the nickname that may have been with them for a long time (and indeed had a reputation (good or bad)) built up with it? Thanks for your time and again thanks for the licence. Nath I would like to add that i have no issue at all with people knowing me by my real name but i would love to be able to continue using my nickname.
