Default Tiny space for first names?

I don't know if this has been suggested before, but I couldn't find anything.

I was wondering if a person's first name could appear somewhere in the post, maybe under the date of joining or under something.

It seems that only a small amount of people include their name in their signature, or like me, use their names as their CP name (that's understandable, otherwise you'd get Julie1, Julie2, Julie3 etc. LOL!) I just feel rude sometimes when I don't know how to address someone. I agree that it's often not necessary, but sometimes, you want to address someone by name, and saying 'Moonshine's Mum' or whatever, just doesn't sound right. I've been here about 4 months, and I still don't know many of the regular posters' names when I reply to posts. Personally, I don't even care if people use an alias if they are uncomfortable with the world knowing their real first name, as long as it addresses them as a person, rather than just as 'dog's owner', LOL!

I think it's a good idea!

By the way, my name is Malin.

Hello Malin, nice to know your name! We've passed comments a number of times, but addressing you personally, as Malin, is definitely an improvement on saying "Hey, you're right, Electrocutionist!" LOL!

Is that pronounced Mah-lin, by the way? Or May-lin?

If you go to user CP there's edit signature,you can add your name there at the bottom.

Yes, I have seen that, but most people don't seem to use it. Also, I think a lot of people actually use that line of text for doggy info, instead, don't they?
