It should be that they can only get into the forum by completing the form, now we know they can give false answers bit it is a start.

I almost agree but how would you want to force people to id themselves in an internet forum?

I just took WARmachine88's suggestin and started a thread for him to post about himself. I think that if anyone wants info on anyone else they should start a thread asking for that info. Someone sent me a PM. I will gladly post in a thread if someone wishes to ask questions.

The following is just one example of why there needs to be some change or improvement in the system as Charge 7 has suggested.

There is no way forcing people to provide more personal information will stop flammers and people like WARmachine88 (CSmaster). It takes only seconds to lie about someone's background. Now we can tell if someone is lying about being in the military since we have members with extensive military backgrounds.

I feel we are going to have to accept that there will always be flammers online just as there will always be crime in the real world. As long as we have members who report flammers immediately for the mods to deal with, we can keep damamge to a min.

Yes, they can always lie about what they put in their info, but it would at least be some idea of who they claim to be. Having no information at all makes dealing with such individuals just that much more difficult. Also I doubt that they'd lie so overwhelmingly all the time that you couldn't, at least in many cases, figure out what was up. If nothing else, it should be mandatory that you identify with a particular country. Seeing people with great big question marks where their country's flag icon should be just highlights the problem.

I've been member to many forums, and anonymity was always considered as some kind of right of the users. It's never really dawned on me to force a profile. I suppose it is a good idea, at least on this particular board.
