Maybe. Neowin IRC can be fun... in which ways is something you have to experience yourself. :shiftyninja:

You would say that. :p

Usually personnel leaving wouldn't be something to announce...

 

Also we're still in the works of getting the forum spiced up; the tech issues solved and name changes being one of them. The former you'd definitely notice and is worthy of an announcement. The latter, well unless you're obsessed with whoever's display names were before the change, it's not worthy of broadcasting on a loudspeaker ;)

I meant the display name changes.

 

Also, when I first saw staff changing their display names it confused me and it's clear that it had confused other members as well, which is why I was surprised that this change wasn't mentioned anywhere publicly.

Aheer.R.S.'s summary in the first reply is spot on. Most of the staff started using their real names at Daniel's prerogative to make the site seem more professional and friendly. I don't blame you for missing it though. They didn't exactly announce it publicly, and it didn't have a thread of its own until now. For reference, Daniel's post about it is #242 in the Tech Issues Solved thread. In case the context isn't immediately clear, he quoted Crisp's post #134 in the same thread, but he was really responding to the post Crisp quoted, which is Brando212's post #128 in that thread.

 

 

 

 

Appreciate the in-depth reply.

My advice to members is to always be careful about what you share about yourself on an open forum.

I'll take my pseudonim over my real name any day. Hell, even on my PhD some people use my other pseudonim because it's only four letters, describes very well my name and it's easier to pronounce. I kind of like it...

Yes,

As far as names of anyone here, I almost never even look at them. Heck, half of them are so corny and far fetched, I couldn't pronounce them if I wanted to!!

 

As far as my name, it's ALWAYS been my REAL nickname, just with my birth year added, since I joined Neowin. Everybody that I've EVER known in real life, knows me as Cork! :)

Denis and Steve are right. There is no drama on staff. Personal issues have caused this change. We are, however making Neowin a friendlier place for all. As Steve said, we will announce our plans soon. Until then, expect a few more changes. I can feel the conspiracy theories bubbling up now..... :p

I like the change, by the way, I was just curious how it came about. :)
