    Default Login names

    The British Merchant Navy
    Old Friends Plus


    I receive many e-mails mentioning that it is difficult to find old friends on the website when a 'Username' is employed.

    They do have a point, so I wonder whether you would allow me to change your username to your real name thus making
    it possible for old friends to contact you should they spot your name?

    May I also mention the Crew List, if you haven't yet added your name and ships to this please consider doing so, the
    link is at the top of the website.


    Please click here to send me an e-mail


    Many thanks,

    Just a thought. a lot of people whist posting on this site, may not want to be found for a number of reasons.

    Local Burglars see a name on the internet chat site, and a person can say ,"I am off on holiday next Saturday for two weeks,".
    The local burglar sees it, looks in the Phone book , gets the address, goes around and knowing no one is home Robs the house.
    This has happened several times in Boltonistan.
    That is why I do not use my name.
    Cheers
    Brian

    If my post was read correctly it will be seen that there is no requirement to use ones proper name, it is just a request.
    The principle object of the website is, as the title suggests, to help find old friends, it is not just a blog.

    Posts on this forum are also not intended for general discussion, they are for inclusion in the Newsletter only.

    Ivan... This website is here to help merchant seamen find old friends, for that a name is needed but it would seem that we do have
    members who do not want to find old friends so hide behind a pseudonym.
