    HI Everyone,

    Just a quick request, we would like to use real names from here on out for user names on the Freefly forum. We are having an increasing problem with spambots and fake users registering and real names will help. Additionally I feel real names will help maintain the level of professionalism that we desire for this forum.

    If you could please switch over to your real name in the next week that would be great. We will start deleting accounts that do not appear to be real names on December 10th.

    To change your username please do the following Screen Shot 2012-11-27 at 9.13.33 PM.jpeg Screen Shot 2012-11-27 at 9.13.45 PM.jpeg

    Thanks for your help on this guys!

    Tabb

    I messed up my name a little and now I can't change it for 89 days. Oops. Oh we'll, just put a cap "I" instead of lowercase.

    Hi Rex:
    Not sure what went wrong. Your user name appears to have changed, though...

    Thanks for doing that.
    Andy.
