    Re: Why do you use a pseudonym?

    I use Winger because it's been my nickname since high school. My middle name is Wing and somehow the nickname just happened. I don't hide my identity, but I just like going by Winger (I link to my website in my siggy usually). If I'd been using my real name, my last name has changed in the years since I started hanging out on the web so that would have meant changing my sign-on name - kinda a pain on most sites.
    I also use a different name when I'm on non-photography sites and I don't give out as much info there (mommy type sites).

    Oh darn. And I was going to ask if you were Debra Winger.

    I guess not. Cheers. Bob G.

    This has bothered me ever since I joined LFPF and today I tried to change this in my profile but I must really be an ignoramus because I can't find how to accomplish changing for a pseudonym to my actual name.
    So, can someone please explain how this is done?

    I don't understand why anyone would object to me not using my full last name when I quite happily post my photo there on the left <<<< ....
    When I was 16 I thought my father the stupidest man in the world; when I reached 21, I was astounded by how much he had learned in just 5 years!

    Nope. And not related to the 80s hair band Winger (though I liked them back then).
