Familiar names

No doubt we'll see some familiar names pop up, I use the same screen name on all forums, I notice plenty of others do as well, trolls tend to change names a lot but I suspect the types of people that you want to have participate here are likely to be contributors elsewhere as well

 

For me I tend to check in on forums quite a lot and tend to look in on sections that I'm most familiar or interested in, so for myself in other forums I frequent that would mean

 

iPhone

Android

Mobile

Wireless Broadband

ADSL

VoIP

Network

Hardware

ISP's

Carriers

 

And usually anything news or annoucement related so I expect there might be some crossover here with some of those

Thanks, some other avatar options (including no avatar) probably wouldn't go astray Smiley Wink if you want to make it a bit more inviting for all that is

yes me too, there I was crying in my beer, wondering why I hadn't been noticed Smiley Tongue

 

Hopefully the acceptance is good once this goes public, a good initiative I feel, something I never would have expected to see happening a year or two ago that's for sure

I'm sure whoever coded this site is proud of their work and it is probably technically very correct but if you want it to be a bit more inviting a more familiar forum type atmosphere would help I think, it's a bit clinical at the moment, I do understand the goal is for it to become a searchable FAQ that can assist other customers but making it a bit more of a community look and feel might encourage more participation, just my thoughts anyway Smiley Happy

I tend to agree with the forum suggestion, it would encourage discussion.

 

The idea of a forum with a searchable wiki function for solutions is better in my opinion.

Re: Familiar names

Agree with jokiin that it would be excellent to get more avatar flexibility. I do like icecream but I feel it doesn't properly reflect the depth of my personality like say... a dancing inanimate object. I'd be happy with a dancing icecream option if that makes it easier for you guys.

_________________________

The "trolls tend to change names a lot" statement has me somewhat baffled.

Would this be in reference to other forums throughout the internet or specific to any particular forum/site?

I have contributed to a few forums, one in particular is a competitor's Community, on which I continue to participate intermittently, using different screen names for each. Does this make me a #*%**?

Sometimes people use a screen name that may be applicable to a particular forum and a different one which may be in line with the theme of another. For example, it may be rather silly if someone called Telstra_bob used that screen name on the Vodafone Community website.

I don't hide who I am nor do I have a problem disclosing my screen names that I use on other forums if requested, and in fact I'd love people on this Community to read my content on your competitor's Community (details of which I can't openly post on here as that may violate the terms & conditions of this service).

However, we must also remember that we are on social media which is freely accessible globally, and anonymity is essential for purposes of privacy (and to some degree security), hence why we use screen names in the first place on such sites.
