Email Notifications

I have gotten two emails notifying me that people have responded to one of my posts. However, instead of displaying the person’s forum name, the emails contain their real name. Is that an option to opt in or opt out of? My main concern is that not everyone wants their real name disseminated in that way. I think it would be especially a concern since so many minors post on this forum.

Pretty sure it only displays their real name if they have their real name public.

I’ll agree with @Xenon27: I just looked back in my email at some of my notifications, and only see screen names.

Ah. You’re right. I just checked. The two notifications I got were from people that use their real name associated with this accounts. One appears to be a student (minor). There should be an option to disallow minors to reveal their real names on the forum in that way.
