Andrew vs NiceGuy1[edit]

Hi NiceGuy1. Was looking at the Contribution scores, and was wondering who Andrew was. When I clicked in, I was directed to your page. Can you explain why your account list your contributions under a different name? Just curious --Kynde (talk) 08:51, 11 June 2022 (UTC)

Andrew is my real name, I didn't realize I had put it on my account (this was a few years ago now), and I'm not sure why ExplainXKCD would be using it anywhere like that instead of my user name. ??? I certainly don't approve. And I don't see any Account page where I can see it listed at all... As it is I'm annoyed that the site keeps insisting on showing my username as red, saying my Talk page doesn't exist (this message MAY have changed that, but it doesn't look like it). Might be that it needs confirmation but the site refuses to send me the confirmation email. NiceGuy1 (talk) 06:31, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
I've created your user page, so now your username doesn't appear red. While False (talk) 13:55, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
Thanks! Though it HAS been handy for spotting my comments, :) NiceGuy1 (talk) 13:54, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
Found the Preferences page, it has an optional entry for "Real Name", I entered Andrew there. I would question why ExplainXKCD is showing Real Name anywhere. :) NiceGuy1 (talk) 06:37, 13 June 2022 (UTC)
Have you then changed it to NiceGuy1, that would be smart for you and others (I have put in Kynde as my real name there I see now). Agree that it is silly it post the real name. But guess the contribution score looks deeper... I'm happy you contribute so much. Did not know of course as I knew NiceGuy but not Andrew was posting changes ;-) --Kynde (talk) 13:11, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, I guess I should do that. It seems wrong to put anything besides my real name as Real Name, but looks like that's the best thing to do. NiceGuy1 (talk) 13:54, 14 June 2022 (UTC)
