What exactly do you like about the taxidermy forum? What do you find hard to use about this format?

(moving to suggestions and feedback forum).

A forum for taxidermy issues???!!!

To each their own, I guess, but that forum looks much more complicated than this one. I like being able to see right there who started the thread, the last poster, and number of views/replies. In my opinion this is the best and most easy to use forum out there.

Personally I like the layout of this site as it is. I don't want to see it changed in anyway.

What I liked about the taxidermy forum is you can scroll threw every posting without changing categories...Its all taxidermy talk..just like this forum is all bicycle talk anyway...why not just lump everything together?

This forums follows a standard layout of 99% of the forums on the web and is definately the most popular style of standard. to change it would just be wrong

I generally like it the way it is. There are a few cosmetic improvements I'd like to see, like lighter backgrounds everywhere, and especially in this box, but overall that's very minor.

Now, one major improvement I would like is the use of real names instead of nicknames. I know that people can hide behind a name (especially if one's name is John Smith), but it adds a more personal touch.

Regards,

.... and your name is really mgagnonlv?

If I was re-registering I would certainly go with my real name.

I don't want our forum to look like one about taxes

Accounting is so boring.

I used to belong to a forum in the mountain bike site, then they switched the software without warning, everyone got mad and left. Change is bad. Let's keep the current format, I like it.

I would too. Future option for the forums, maybe?


So no, my name isn't "mgagnonlv", you have my real name, Michel Gagnon in the signature.

The problem with "log ins" is that one needs a unique name, and in most cases, the name must be one word, without spaces, etc. Looking at other user names like "Koffee Brown" or "Joe Gardner", I now can see that the Bikeforums software allows more possibilities for user names. I didn't know before registering, however.

As to why not Michel Gagnon? It's a very common name in Québec, probably equivalent to John Smith elsewhere in Canada and in U.S. Let's say that if one tries to register a Hotmail or Yahoo account with "MichelGagnon", one is typically offered something like "MichelGagnon22". My username therefore comes from MGagnon, and the last two letters are initials from my wife's name. Easy for me to remember.

Now you know.

Koffee
I know I could change my username but I don't want to forever end up as 'Rodney Olsen' (formerly known as MediaCreations)

So what was your original username?
