That calculation could break my computer.

I like the idea of First name with Last Initial.

I think that should be made a seperate option for the poll, just to be clear for voting purposes. I think having people's last names available for public knowledge might open up somewhat of a can of worms, but initial I think is good enough.

I like the idea. I would only want to put up my first name though. Maybe last initial like other people have mentioned.

it should be kept private, but should be required to register...Only avaliable to see by age verifies, mods and admins. Could help resolve issues and track people who use several accounts(scammers, assholes, banned people, etc). No user could access the real name unless and incident occured and then an admin could release the real name if they saw fit.

i think when you get age verified, your name and particulars should be recorded. so when people check out your profile, they can see you real name and province at least, then that way a person could calculate shipping charges themselves. and also if a deal goes awry, someone has the contact info ect so you can do something about it, rather than making a thread "got screwed by xxxxxxx"

I like the idea of first name and last initial.
That way you have SOME info to go on. I know the names of about 50 people who frequent asc just from deals and meeting at games and so on. Know the first name of everyone would be pretty neat.

Especially easy when your one of 2 people with that last name in Canada. Got a call asking for a doctor with the same last name so I was like "WTF? uhh sure" and gave them my dad who they thaught was that doctor.... they laughed when they found out its the wrong guy.

Agree, First name, and last initial

Real names are recorded and stored when age verified, but are not publicly available.

So ... what happens when your ASC name is your real name? Do we get to create other 'fake' real names? If so I want to be Todd.

Meh, I prefer people not knowing exactly who the fuck I am. 'Chris' and 'Poz' are quite good enough for me, thank you very much.

Although if someone does a Google cross-reference search, it'll turn up my full name in a heartbeat.
