Just an update on the issue of usernames.> Posted January 15, 2010
While I am not asking current members (members prior to 2010), to change their nics, I am asking that new members choose usernames easily understandable in english. We are primarily an english speaking/reading/writing readership, and do not want usernames to become an issue.
Most, depending on familiarity with various languages, are going to struggle to figure out how various names in other languages read and therefore how they are said. I simply do not want usernames to be an issue, where someone is focused on what in the world the name means, or how to say it, versus what that person may want to discuss.
Therefore, whether one is merely picking a name from another language for impact, or with users fluent in other languages , since one must be fluent in english in order to read the forum in the first place, or may be translating it, I would ask that you simply use an english nic or something that can be easily said in english, or understood in english.
1 Corinthians 14:19-20 Yet in the church I had rather speak five words with my understanding, that by my voice I might teach others also, than ten thousand words in an unknown tongue. 20. Brethren, be not children in understanding: howbeit in malice be ye children, but in understanding be men.
