Just a reminder that we are not an anonymous forum community. We are a professional photography community.
As such, it has been, and will continue to be the policy that we use our real names
in our profile.
Please make sure that your display name is in line with our clarified policy. Your Display name should be
your real full name
(first and last)
Alternately, you may use one of the following. When choosing one of these options you must
include your real full name
(first and last) in your signature line and your signature must appear at the bottom of all of your posts.
a) Your company name
b) Some easily identifiable portion of your real name
c) Your real nickname
How to edit your signature: login, click on the "user cp" link in the top right of the screen, then click on the very first option on the left, "edit signature."
How to edit your display name:Email me or pm me your edited display name and I will change it for you. Email to: email@example.com Clarified Avatar Policy:
The logical continuation of this policy is that all avatars should also be your photograph. The avatar is meant to help people get to know one another, not to show off your latest graphic design. Although, I must admit that some of them are quite cool. Please be as creative as you want in your signature line. Put your cool avatar that you use on all the other forums in this space. There is a lot more room to express yourself there anyway.
In this forum, the avatar should reflect some recognizable semblance of a headshot of you. If you want to Photoshop out wrinkles, put a cool glow on it, etc., that is fine.
If you would prefer not to post a headshot you certainly do not have to do so.
After September 1st, 2006 the moderators and I will edit any profiles not following these policies. We will not provide individual members any advance notice of these changes. How to upload an "avatar":
You can upload an "avatar" to your profile in your "user cp" section.
Simply click on the "edit avatar" tab in your "user cp" and then upload your avatar (80x80 max pixels, may be smaller) (.gif, .jpg, .png accepted)
Browse to your head shot image and upload it.
