For those of you wishing to register as a new member of RYPN. Please choose a username that reflects your real name or if you must, a username that is recognizable as having railroad content. We receive several new member requests a day and if a username looks like it has been created by a spambot, that registration is deleted.

Facebook is the largest social media platform in the world and it is based on using real names. I think we can do that here and not only eliminate these registration problems but also help us all to better network with each other. There is nothing so secret in railway preservation that we cannot stand behind what we post.

This is an example of a few recent rejected usernames that we get:

ArethaStg41587
natusianails21
VickyYir
EstelleCcb0202

Obviously spambots are creating these names. Capitalization and spaces are permitted in username selection, hence my username "Rick Rowlands".

Thanks Everyone!
