    Hi all,
    As the garrison continues to grow, it's getting more and more difficult to know everyone by screen names. So, I've added the option for you to display your real name under your avatar on every post you make.

    In the interest of privacy, this is optional, and is an "opt-in" feature. If you don't want your name displayed to all registered users, simply do nothing (be aware that your real name is displayed for viewing by admins and moderators on all of your posts).

    Due to the way the boards function, I had to add a separate field in your user profile to accomplish this. So, if you'd like your name publicly displayed (like mine is under my avatar to the left of this post), go to your user control panel (towards the upper-right corner of the screen)

    select profile from the menu on the left

    and scroll down to where you can enter your name. Enter your name as you'd like it displayed, and click submit
