A Name Or Nickname you Prefer Would Be Nice

Last Update: June 22, 2015

I know this may seem personal, and I may not have any right to make such a request or suggestion per say, but I must ask all who I may share Comments with or even just support your Goals. Somewhere in your Profile, Please put your Name, Nickname, or some kind of name you would like to be called by other that your User Name.

In the beginning of your Profile, in the end, or even in the middle would be nice. It makes no difference where as long as in your Profile. I ask this because I have a habit of putting the name of whoever I am writing the Comment to. Now in the beginning, I would always go to a person's profile to find their name. Sometimes I would scroll down Comments until I found Kyle or Carson and saw what name they put for the user, but that takes too much time.

After finding soo many Users that do not have their name or name they want to be called anywhere on their Profile, I get to where I do not even look at Profiles. I just call everyone by their username. I guess that just does not seem as personal to me. I guess because in a way I call the WA community my online family working towards Success, I would just like to be able to call people by more than just a User Name and not have to work hard to see if there even is another name different than the User Name somewhere in the Comments below the Profile.

I know I may sound strange or however you want to describe me, but still I will put in the request for members to put some kind of name besides their User Name somewhere on their Profile so that it is easy for me or anyone else interested to find the name you wish to be called by so that those that choose to can answer comment with your name instead of just UserName.

I have a bad memory, so I have to go to people's Profile often to be reminded of their names, but of course if I see fewer and fewer names in Profiles. The more I find this will cause me to just stop looking at Profiles and just call everyone by their User Name. Just a thought and request for those Members who would prefer being called by something other than their User Name.

As Always, I wish Success For All!

Sorry Michael, I was certain your post was all one big paragraph that I could not read after the first few lines.

My reference to white space was in regards to the space between your words. And tighten up simply meant do a better job at it.

You can still call me E, Eric, anything else .... And now E-or if you'd like.

Hey, what do you prefer I address you as?

Hi Michael.

This is an awesome request and I wish folks would do that as well. I am constantly scrolling down to see Kyle's message like you said and that does take time. I never like using a person's username to "speak" with them - sometimes I do not give them a name. That is why I frequently put Steph at the end of all my comments....

Thank you Michael for blogging about this. Awesome!

Steph

I agree with you Michael, it feels weird to say "hello haihoyhuy14472" when I write to a person. Been thinking of this lately too, when seeing less and less names in the new profiles :-) And yes, Marith is my name
