My full name was used by at least 10 persons and I have had to protest to the Admin for misuse. Now that the Admin has decided to use the unique username for display (This can't be used by anybody else), it has solved the misuse and imposter problem

Yeah cause the username wasnt displayed right UNDER the display name or anything?!?!

You had to be a bona fide idiot to not be able to figure out if someone using a fake display name was actually not the real person.

You are wrong. When you look at the current threads list, the full name of the poster was displayed and NOT the username. That displayed name could be used by anybody with a different username and it happened to me a sufficient number of time to get very concerned.
Look at the thread in this section with the word imposter in the heading and you will realise the magnitude of the problem.
Under the new system implemented yesterday or today, this won't happen, period.

When we all registered, we knew that our displayed name (most prominent and on top) was our "full name" and NOT our was foolish to have a "full name" but log in using your "username", and having 2 (both) names displayed with each post..

So if Ecoustics wants to have just 1 name DISPLAYED, it should be what we originally selected and wanted with our FULL NAME, not our username to be displayed..our "full names" were our prominent NICKS that we preferred to be called and used..

admin, may I suggest you reverse your recent change of displaying our "usernames' and display our "full names" instead as we all wanted...or otherwise, require us all to re-register and we'll all pick whatever "username" we want for you to DISPLAY as our NICKS, and for login purposes..
