These forums use our Identity Bank. The Identity Bank gives us many new capabilities but generally it:
  1. Gives us greater compliance with international laws on privacy, safe harbor, etc.
  2. Protects our users. When our systems use our Identity Bank, they cannot be cracked for user login data. The user accounts are simply not there to steal. It also allows us to concentrate our security efforts on the Identity Bank itself.
  3. Greater privacy by allowing the use of usernames/nicknames.
The third general feature is the subject of this post.

These forums treat your unique user names as "new users" and separate account holders. This means that you have the ability to be a nickname instead of your real name. The advantage is greater privacy for you.

To use a nickname here:
  1. go to our Identity Bank ( and log in.
  2. using the menu options at the top click on "user names" You will see a list of nicknames already assigned to your account.
  3. add a new nickname by entering it into the form that starts with "Add a new user name"
  4. Click the "Add" button
Now that nickname is yours, as long as it is unique to our Identity Bank system and does not use "reserved" account names.

Click the logout button and return here to the forums. Then log in using the new "nickname" you entered and your account password.

Each nickname you log in with is treated as a new and separate account on these forums.

I don\'t know if the forums have been updated to change the way this is done, but \"user names\" is not a tab available in the top menu for me currently, checked on two different devices2021-05-31 07:07:10
These forums use our Identity Bank. That is where you can set user names/aliases. Once they exist on the Identity Bank they may be used here. Please note, these forums do not have any personal information. Therefore, different users names are treated like they are different people.2021-06-01 11:30:37
