I find it so strange (and arrogant) that people leave a little comment of their name at the end of every message they leave.  It's like they think themselves emailing or sending a letter.

I mean....it really doesn't effect anything but like seriously, your name is to the left of the message itself anyway. Do you think I need to know your name twice?  like I should be in awe of your awesome comment and now ill remember your name cos you're just so ace so took the time to throw in that little last bit of class.

It's like ending a phone call by saying your name instead of goodbye.

:D i had to do it.

No but seriously now. I think that many people do that indeed thinking like they would write an email or a letter, i dont find it arogant. Hell sometimes i dont even noticed it. Just sit back, have a beer and enjoy your day either in WoT or out from it.

As i sad above i dont see it as an issue.

Most of people don't notice your name on the left, they don't even look there (I know I don't  do that). So I think it's just to be noticed.

Goodbye.

Pointless thread mate, correcting peoples grammer or how to write posts/threads on the internet is a waste of your time and ours reading and replying to it.

You must have better things to do, I would hope  :amazed:

I don’t know about now. But in the early days of computing. You tagged everything with your name. This was so if the database collapsed or the file directories corrupted or some such. The paper trail could be gone though and it all worked out. My father always signed as “fred”. Look at your keys and you’ll see why. But that was back in the 50s and 60s kind of died out in the 70s when core dumping became the thing. That said I cant see that this would have survived till now in common use other than, possibly, in the more annually retentive companies. Although it is still used in some universities  I have had dealings with.

On a forum like this its a bit pretentious. But so are a lot of the people posting comments and treads. So the look at me I’m so important factor has to be considered.
