Real Full Name
Until recently, when registering as a user of this site/forum, we have requested your 'Real Full Name', stating that this was only visible to yourself and Administrators.
Due to the nature of this site, where anonymity should be of no interest to anyone in the puzzling community, we have decided to change this setting.
Note that you may still elect to remain anonymous if you so wish by not entering a Real Full Name.
The new text now reads:
"Please enter your real name here, not your username.
This is optional, but visible to anyone who wants to see it.
It will also be publicly listed on any relevant contest result tables."
Since the site settings can only be global, this change is retroactive. Therefore if you wish to withhold your real name from public view for any reason, you should go to your profile
and set your 'Real Full Name' to be blank, or any other non-profane value you choose.Nationality
(This is a clarification, not a change)
To participate in online contests, we have for some time requested your country of residence, and country of representation.
Your 'country of representation' must be a country of your choice that you would be eligible to compete for at the World Puzzle/Sudoku Championships.
You may choose to select 'United Nations' if you do not wish to affiliate with one particular country.
Since the UK Puzzle Association selects UK teams to compete internationally, it is particularly important that you do not choose "Great Britain (inc. NI)" as your representative nation if you are not eligible to do so.Personal Signatures
It is clearly stated in the welcome information that all discussions and links posted on this site must be related in some way to WPC/WSC style puzzles.
This includes any signatures you choose to display.
Failure to adhere to this guideline may result in your account and all your posts being deleted.
