I don't know if anyone else feels the same, but I would be interested to know a bit more about the other magicians on the site - the profile page doesn't seem to give very much info. The two main things I think it is lacking are a "Real name" option (I for one sometimes feel a bit stupid referring to people by their screen names, particularly when sending them a PM), and maybe an "Age" box?

Obviously these should be optional (in my opinion), and although this information can be found out fairly easily, it would be nice to be able to look on a page and see everything there.

Thanks for hearing me out,
Simon

I agree with the points you have raised, and if this is going to be considered, maybe add a section for 1) types of magic performed 2) Years practicing magic 3) club member

Or maybe this could all be covered if we all had a little box for "comments" or something, which we could fill in with whatever information we wanted?

Not all the time, but usually, members who use ID screen names don't want their real names posted. There is a signature line area which I know you are aware of that could contain a real name if desired. We also have a new arrivals forum where members can post anything about themselves they wish to divulge.

Ages though? Also, I'm sure some of them wouldn't mind telling us their real names, they don't have any choice to at the moment though!

How about a "Bio" field? Would that do?

Here's an added thought ...

The "Bio" entry could also be made viewable only to logged-in members. That way the robots can't read it.

Thoughts?
