I like reading diaries . Especially Alex , Pleno , Liam n few new one . Miss the John Black diary though . Recently there been a few new diaries which are very interesting to read . Fantastic talking about poker HH, volume etc.. But why post here & create a interesting diary BUT DONT WANT READERS TO KNOW WHO U ARE ? I am a fan of reading but I will like to know what I am reading and who's diary it is . Kind of annoying if u read a book but don't know who's the writer ! Please correct me if I am wrong . If they wanted to stay anon , why create a diary here ?

What would people think if we insisted (for new sign ups to the forum) and encouraged (for existing members) people to use their real names when posting on the forum, as you would if you belonged to a poker group on say facebook?

No way, people should be allowed to be anonymous if they want. It will stop some signing up for sure also.

In the particular instance that Frankie is referring to - I'd much rather have him stay anon because its not worth it (for him) to out himself in terms of $$$, he'll just not bother posting and that's a loss to the forum.

At the end of the day it is his choice, all he is doing is posting on a poker forum. I dont know the real names of some posters and its not important. Why should people be forced to reveal their real names and all their poker aliases?

As for Tighty's point - again disagree, UNLESS you are posting in the staking forums. I can create a profile with my picture on Facebook, but I can put any old name up there.

I don't think people should be forced to actually state there real names. But.. If someone starts a diary on their life or poker journeys, the whole point of it is to be personal. People are able to relate and connect to a person and their views. Alot of the time when reading an opening post, I honestly don't continue reading as don't know who they are. And in My opinion, a few diarys or threads are only started to get 300 posts so they can get on the staking boards too.

Think it the responiblity if a poster to introduce themselves to their readers.

Why all the shouting in the thread? Sure politely ask someone their real name, but I find the shouting and demanding a bit off putting.  

We have a new poster who has put a lot of good content on the board already, leave him be.  If he wants to say who he is, I think he has the right to do it when he wants.

Now if he calls me a ****, then it is different.

Hi Frankie,

I know you don't always come across in the manner you intended.

Just so you know, UPPER CASE ("Capital wording") is the internet equivelant of shouting, or angry.

In your case, you don't mean it that way, of course, but not everyone realises that.
