    Hi there,

    I've been seeing a lot of responses requesting real names deleted from references. Please, only post references with real names IF and ONLY IF the other users OKs it. Many people here post with an alias because they are trying to protect their privacy, please respect this. I know it's generally harmless, but some people take this seriously, it'll make everyone's lives easier (and makes it easier to search for references!) if you post with the user handle ONLY. If you do want to post real names, please check first.

    Also: Please copy/paste users names verbatim, we also get quite a few requests to correct user names when pasted. (for example, if you were to post a reference for me, please use "diredesire" instead of "Dire Desire". This makes it easier to search!)

    I second this! it's so annoying when you look at your references to find someone has misspelled your name! =P

    User name only

    One problem is that my user name, AC Tennis, always gets the "The search term you specified (AC) is under the minimum word length (3) and therefore will not be found. Please make this term longer.
    If this term contains a wildcard, please make this term more specific." message. So I need to include my real name for people to find my references.

    Try using google with the site:tt.tennis-warehouse.com qualifier, or put quotes around your search term on TW. I just tried and it came up with some of your ref threads, but i'm not sure if i have special search permissions (doubt it)
