Congratulation, Tom. This is quite exciting! :-)

I need to say that it made me feel uneasy when I saw my name spelled out in full, next to an enlarged copy of my facebook picture. Will it be possible to change these features, or Should/Must/Can I cancel my account?

Apologies about that Curt -
I've already reported this to Adi but I think it got forgotten about (did by me anyways :-[) - we'll see what he says.
It's actually also a problem if you register - you have to fill in a user name and a "Full name" - but it's the full name that's shown on the home/list-page.

I agree :D

Does anyone know what the norm is with Facebook logins - do they usually show the full name?
I have used FB to login places - but very little and cant remember how it worked..


Curt, this may help:
Initially I registered on the site, and gave the same name for user and full names (just "Tom") - after that, when loged in via Facebook, it just shows my registered name (Tom). I think this might be a workaround.

When a user registers to website using facebook, he is asked for permission to access to his/her data from facebook. You may remove the photo from your account at askapic with ease : Profile -> Edit Photos and you can also edit any information you want clicking on "Profile" in the header of the website, after logging in.

Your account may be though canceled/deleted at any time by an admin.

I was just thinking that displaying name instead of username is a much more friendlier way of listing the questions. We will modify the website to display usernames instead of names as soon as possible.

Curt,
I'm going to send you a PM (but I've got to finish another first!) with a suggestion so that your anwser need not be erased

I agree Adi that full names are friendlier - but when people have to fill in a user name they dont expect the full name to be used (that's the feedback I'm getting).
Another option would be to let them know which name is going to be chosen or let them choose which name is used - but these ideas are more complex and probably not worthwhile.


Re Facebook:
I would imagine that showing the full name is the norm - that's how FB works...

first name and last initial might be good.

for registering (NOT via FB) why not leave out the real name altogether? i.e. people would just fill in a username
or
would there be a sort-of legal requirement (or security) in attempting to get the full name?

I have to admit I've been ignoring askapic lately  :-[

Someone posted an interesting image today - it "visually" has the names of 72 bands e.g. The Eagles, Led Zepplin (I'm showing my age, only guessing the older ones)

Have a look (click on the screenshot below) - it's only fun (for you, and us) if you havent seens the answers elsewhere :)

PS dont be posting any answers here please >:( :D

2011/2012 Update:

I just wanted to say that Adi (adi_barb) has taken over the Askapic site and is going to give it another go (it never did get going last time round...)

Wishing him the best of luck :Thmbsup:
