When registering...

Please take the time to get your names correct in the fields listed.

Name = display name. This is what people see you logged in as, and is the name on your forum posts.

Username = login name. This is what you use to log in. For safety it is sometimes best to make this different than your display name.  (Note:  The forum software looks up profiles by username, so it looks like usernames can't be hidden.)

If you mess up, just send me a message and I'll fix it for you. I know, the little icons on the registration form have the indicators backwards for these two fields.
