PostPosted: Tue Jun 03, 2008 11:19 am    Post subject: DBBP Policy Regarding User Names Reply with quote

For complete ethical clarity and to avoid any confusion between the opinions voiced by fans on this board and statements made by players themselves, the policy of DBBP going forward is that no DBBP member may use someone else's name as their own user name.

Existing examples include:
MicahOwings
webby17
Sheriff27
CY 24
jupton10
Gonzo572001
O-Dawg
Chris24Young
Drew06
Counsell
CoJack
webby17

Please alter these names to ensure that the distinction is legally clear. For those that remain unchanged by midnight tonight, the word "fan" will be added to the end of the user name for clarification. Thank you for your cooperation.

And yes, we have no problem with JB (Josh Byrnes), first pitch hacking (Thom Brennaman), Steve Gilbert, and Keith Law keeping their user names unchanged. Wink

I just dont think anyone cares about soccer enough to notice... I had no clue your s/n referenced a soccer team and still have no clue which team it may/may not reference.

Actually, nah..just throw 'Fan' at the end.

It doesn't really matter though, if it's better off I change it to "Black hole in Left" then go for it, but if 'Fan' at the end is no issue, then keep it.

Of course, the team was named after this guy

Hopefully he doesn't complain to the Admins about the name use

Does Daron Sutton or Mark Grace ever post on this board? I heard them mentioning Shoewizard on one of their broadcast.

At the top of the page you'll see a section called "Profile." Within Profile, your user name and other options can be changed.

XB3 is correct. Let me know either here or by PM what you'd like your user name changed to and I'll change it for you. Again, for those mentioned above, if I don't hear back by midnight tonight we'll simply add the word "fan" to the end of your user name.

If people pick something other than CurrentNameFan, will there be a cheat sheet to know who became whom? Or is it like the witness protection program?
