It would be great to have at least the basics like the Base Airport (ICAO code) filled in, so it can be shown to the right of the post.

It helps to add context to questions.

You can find it under My Account.

Many thanks

It doesn't show the home airport next to each post.

EGBE - Coventry

True but it could in the future.

Done!

This is just a bump on this old thread

Many peoples’ profiles are just empty. It would help the context of a post to know a bit about where you come from.

1000% agree. It’s terrible. Especially those who think that their position or role in the “industry” is such that they can’t afford to be recognized on a pilot forum…

Frankfurt (EDFE, EDFC, EDFZ), Germany

Done

I was once very active on a forum using my real name and holding back little. As you see on virtually any forum, although not on EuroGA of course there are people who are nasty and possibly unstable. On that other forum one of those people decided he or she didn’t like me and spent a year researching and writing letters through the post trying to screw with my life. I didn’t anticipate that issue. Luckily I found people who receive those letters can be fairly easily set straight.

I think whether you choose to identify yourself on a public forum is your choice. There are trade-offs in either direction, and grey areas in between if you ‘partially’ identify yourself to some level at which you feel comfortable. Obviously my initial impulse years ago was to be totally open, and in fact I made close friends that way in places I’d never have made friends otherwise. Good luck with whatever you choose.
