Seems you can't specify your real name in the profile (if you don't use it as your member alias already).

I've created a new field. It is now available in the My Controls area.

This field is currently viewable to all, is that what you had in mind? Also, is this something you'd want to show up in the sidebar beside posts, or only if someone views the profile?

Yes. But your question just made me realize that if you don't add your name in public, the postal address ("only visible by staff") may not be a sufficient address. OTOH, does the staff really need the postal addresses?

In the profile only. If people want their real name completely visible I guess they would use it as their forum nick, like you have with "John Pozadzides".

I meant, as opposed to supplying it on request.

I can't really think of a reason off the top of my head that people would need to share that info with us. But that's why it's optional.

Having said that, I am at times excentric, so what if we wanted to send everyone a holiday card, or something like that. We wouldn't exactly be able to go and ask for the info ahead of time, so we'd only be able to contact those who provided it in advance.
