    Hi all,

    I accidently entered my real name the first time I registered on GDF. Now I want to keep my same username but change the email address associated with it. How do I do this? Also, why should I not use my real name on the forum? I've a newbie to Web forums.

    Thanks

      if you use your real name, people can google you, and sometimes that's not a terribly desirable thing to have happen. That's all.

      To change your email address:

      - go to "User CP" (top left of the thread)
      - select "edit email and password" on the left, 2nd line item
      - enter your new information and save the changes

      That's all there is to it.

        At some point in the future, a potential employer or client might decide to google your name just to see what comes up. If they click on a link that takes them to one of your posts here where you either: A) express your doubt as to whether a particular client has any brains, B) start a flame war with another member, or C) say something extraordinarily funny but extremely tasteless, (which most of us do at some point), they may view you as unprofessional and thus not hire you.

        If Virgo Nightingale was my real name, a google search might have someone thinking I'm a total pervert who's obsessed with avocadoes. I don't want potential employers knowing that about me until I've worked for them for at least a year.

              just hope that your boss doesn't google you then, JP! After that discussion about the eggbeaters and the shoehorn you'd be in hot water for sure!

                  no... why would I watch a bachelor party? I'm a girl.

                  Oh boy, I get the feeling that this thread has taken a bad turn...

                  edit: thank goodness I didn't use my real name!

                    If you've looked into fair use and still don't know the answer, I would recommend you speak to a lawyer. If the artist asks you to take their work down, the polite thing to do is take it down. If, however,...

                    Those of us who work directly with clients all have the same problem.

                    So just a little personal insight from my several decades doing this stuff: clients usually want something different...

                    Can someone make you take down something on your portfolio web site?

                    People will take advantage of you, if you let them. Don't do free work, don't volunteer for any business, unless you are paid on the clock.

                    All of the line weights are the same. I'd do some more thinking about the sound being the same weight as the CF.
                    Is it a political lobbying group? or a political action group. I don't normally associate...
