Username Policy

This policy has received a consensus of almost all Our Property Taxe$ editors.

Choosing a Username

When you register with Our Property Taxe$, you have three name options, Username, Real name, and Nickname.

Your Username ties in with your User ID#, and will always be seen in the upper right hand corner, as well as on your talk page. This name is difficult to change, so make sure that this is the name you wish to be identified by.

Your Real name. The name you choose as your Real name will be the one that will be used to credit you for all your contributions. This name should be chosen with great care, thought, and pride, as it will be displayed on all articles, edits and communications made by you on Our Property Taxe$. You will be referred to by this name so you would want a name that would give you a feeling of pride when mentioned in a blog in any part of the world, or in an award presented on Our Property Taxe$ for your great and outstanding contributions. You do not actually need to provide your legal name when choosing your Real name. Many people chose to remain somewhat anonymous by using a pen name, code name, or shortened name (e.g. Josh W.). Please choose the name that you are most comfortable with. If you do not enter a real name, your Username will be used for all attribution purposes mentioned above.

By default, your Nickname is set to the same setting as your Real name. While it is technically possible to maintain a Nickname different from a Real name, this may create confusion among the community and is usually discouraged.
