I'd like to encourage people to use their real names when participating on Metabunk. I think discussions are more likely to be taken seriously if people recognize they are talking to a real person - and people tend to be more polite when they are not hiding behind a pseudonym. I know though that there are valid reasons for people to want to post anonymously. So I don't want to just start requiring real names. But I do want to encourage it. Possibly I could add a special user status (currently like "Member", "New Member", "Senior Member"), like "Verified Member" that indicates the person is using their real name, that they are not-anonymous. That status could even come with particular minor benefits, like the right to use a sig, or to edit your posts for longer. Or even posting rights in the Metadebunking forum. What do people think?
