I don't know, but I thought you might want to know that you're supposed to put information identifying who you are (name and current team) in your signature.

Done. I really don't understand why that's necessary.

It's so people know who you are when you post. I don't think that's too much to ask.

I just am not that comfortable putting that specific information on the internet.

Hey, we are all real people as part of a real life community that meets to play a real life game, not an anonymous mishmosh of internet people making up an internet community. As such, it seems to be nothing but eminently reasonable to be open with everyone else about who you are and what your connection/affiliation with quizbowl is. This does not mean "J,PHHS," but instead whatever it is your name is and expand the acronym (presumably to Park Hill High School), and as long as you don't practice this same openness, don't be shocked when people ask you to do that (especially when it's a board rule, for god's sake).

My only problem is that other people can view this, and that I am using an alias I use elsewhere on the internet. So I am going to apply for a Username Change to resolve that specific conflict, now let me think of a new username.

The reason why we require this policy is to hold people accountable for what they post. If we have a bunch of nameless people spouting out whatever they want, such as talking trash about other teams, this board can become unproductive. I'm not saying that this board was a complete mess before we enacted this policy, but when names are attached to all posts, it makes people think twice about what they post. As Charles said (quoted above), because this is a real-life activity where we will potentially meet at a tournament, it is completely reasonable for us to require you to provide this information.

Also note, signatures are only viewable to members.

Umm... this is supposed to be the case but apparently isn't... while it doesn't appear with posts when signed out, it shows up in the user profile no matter what. Good job Zetaboards...

I'd never even heard of zetaboards before coming here, usually people use phpbb or if they have money vbulletin. You can probably alter the code not to display signatures on the profile, but members couldn't see them their either.
