Real names


Camp

Any chance a field can be added to our profiles for our real names?

 

I'd like to say I can remember everyone's name but the simple fact of the matter is I have difficulty remembering my phone number (yet there's room up there for the old up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start code).

 

Anyway, I'd like to be able to address many of you with your name...I somehow feel rude using your screen name.

I think this is a damn good idea, actually. I'd have used my real name but frankly if you ever find me playing a game online it'll be using my devilishly punnish moniker above. Mainly because those rat bastard bioterrorists made my OLD nick slightly un-PC ;).

 

Use this as your quick reference Camp, I'm Mark Evans :P. Actually, hell, I'll add it into my sig. I don't like hiding behind a username anyway.

Thanks for the support, Mark.

 

BTW, before someone asks "Camp" is my name (kind of). I got all kinds of shit form the HTF people because of their stupid "must use your real name" rule. They denied my membership twice before caving in...I still think they 'watch' me

the problem with forcing people to use realnames is 1) you must manually approve every new membership 2) how do you know that the name is really their real one and 3) most gamers go by there handles anyways, even in real life.

 

plus i don't feel like reprogramming phpBB :P

Actually except for HTF and here i never use my real name in online stuff. When i used to be into CCG's, when i went to tournaments people still called me capt or DS as we were so used to calling each other by our online names.

I firmly believe that Snow Crash should remain in the realm of the paperback. Lord of the Rings is the only truly exceptional book-to-movie translation I can think of. Snow Crash is too good to leave anything out of, and it would lack Stephenson's flair for description.

 

Can you imagine trying to explain some of those concepts in a movie? Snow Crash has some pretty intelligent conversation going on there and I think it'd be so dumbed down in a movie to be depressing :P.

I think much of Snowcrash would be lost in translation to the big screen. Better to just leave it as is, in my mind. Speaking of which, has anyone heard anything about Stephenson's new book,

Quicksilver? Seems to be keep getting pushed back (sounds like alot of games I'm waiting for).
