Does this have to do with the terms of use?

I scanned them and found a couple of possible concerns.

What are yours please oh poster with the broken ankle?:)

EleGirl, the very bottom banner of the page has a "Terms of Use" link. ConanHub, what in particular did you object to (there is the normal -- we record your id, the IP of the ISP, and browser you use", but i think EVERY website does that for the most part now).

This is a little disconcerting. It may be a typical disclaimer but it reaches pretty far.

Yeah, that is a bit excessive.

I think that using the username is not that big a deal since most here do not use their real name as their user name. It's certainly highly discouraged.

Also, for the most part, no one here knows the real name of other posters, or at list they are not recorded in user profiles.

We're not using our real names because we don't want to be outed, this is a site to talk frankly. Or it was. l'm not worried about another user here finding out my real name but I believe we were required to give our real names when we registered, so these terms and conditions are removing the privacy aspect from this site. That needs to be changed or I'm going to be out too.

No, there was no requirement to give your real name when you registered.

In the old forum platform there was no requirement to give your real name.
There is no such requirement on this new platform either. Here is a screen shot of the new registration form...
