I've been using the forum for a while now.Though I miss TechTalk (and look forward to V2), I really like the forum. It's a great community but, like many online forums, most everyone goes by email handles. I'd much prefer to get to know y'all better and names are a part of that.
For many years, Jeff Renner would post annualy (first of HBD & then on TechTalk) asking people to post where they were located as well as their names. Sometimes it helps give a better answer to posts (water issues, local supplies & beer resources, etc). This even resulted in folks posting their Rennerian coordinates - Jeff R being called the center of the homebrewing Universe.
I'd love to see more people include their names & locations in their profiles &/or signatures. I feel like I probably know a number of you by name, but not by your online handle. It would certainly help for all of us to get to know each other better & build our sense of community. Just sayin'
