Ok....I read the signature rules. Doesn't say you have to use your real name. What's the point of a user name if those are the rules.

It asks for a first name or a nickname. In other words, please give a/the name you are called in real life. I don't believe people in your life address you in person as "Romans830." I understand if your concern is about security. I recently removed my full name from everything here. Now my signature is bare-bones. But, despite all this, a brother was asking for a name by which to address you properly, a request which, given the board rules and the nature of this board in particular, is entirely reasonable, even respectful. Yet somehow this has become a "thing," utterly destroying any usefulness this thread had to offer.

Anyway, I'm not a moderator. I'll let them deal with it if they see fit.
So your violating the rules but yet calling me out on it.....ha.

Brother (or sister, I have no idea), you need to stop.

These is the required format for signatures:

First Name (or nickname)
Ministry Position (if you are a Church Office holder)
Denominational Affiliation
State of Residence


This is my signature:

Taylor (my first name)
[I do not hold church office.]
OPC (my denominational affiliation)
Georgia (my state of residence)

Yeah, that's how my signature looks. But according to you romans830 can't be a nick name. Not my problem. I'm following the rules.

@Romans830, please read: “The profile section of your user control panel contains information that must be filled out so that other users of the board can know who you are as a poster on the Board. Screen names are great, but they are confusing and we would like to have the proper information on each member. After all, we are trying to foster a community of Christians who encourage, pray for and help each other.”

It is incredible how a simple, everyday question can lead to such abrasiveness and confusion. I was not trying to throw a grenade into the discussion at hand—what a curious situation.

I don't know, "Romans830" works great as a handle on a Christian message board, but as a nickname? I am not buying it.

Hi Jeri, thanks for letting me know.
But I will continue to use romans 830 as my nickname. It's that's not acceptable feel free to give me one or maybe Regi can give me one:)

I’m not really sure so have posted the question to the other moderators and admins. Someone will get back with you about it.

Despite what seems to be an absolutely pointless back and forth, I will point out (as have others) that Robert does not have "Regi" in his signature line, but very clearly has "Robert". That is a name or a nickname. The Signature Rules (linked at the bottom of every page) specify the following with examples, and even call out "screen names" as being excluded.

All members of the Puritanboard must have a minimal "signature" in their User Control Panel that includes the following items:

First Name (or nickname)
Ministry Position (if you are a Church Office holder)
Denominational Affiliation
State of Residence

A signature would look like this:

William
Ruling Elder, PCA
Fort Worth, TX

I have never heard of anyone insisting that a forum user name is a nickname. There is no known definition that would support that.

I asked him for his name and he said Regi

Doing something completely normal and 100% within the usual cultural bounds of this Board like asking a person their name doesn't really count as "starting a whole mess", IMNSHO.
I'm not required to share my real name like the signature statement says. You don't have a problem with me but the rules.

Romans830, you are required to put at least your first real name in your signature. Your last name may be withheld if you are a missionary working in a sensitive area, or for a few other case by case bases. Your handle is not your nickname. And yes, you are not behaving in a mature manner.
