We have had a bit of an issue lately with similar names causing confusion.

IF YOU ARE ABOUT TO REGISTER AS A NEW MEMBER

please please PLEASE don't use any variation on the words Hornet or Hairnet. We now have so many members with almost identical names, that sooner or later, there will be a problem with mistaken identities. PLEASE AT LEAST TRY TO BE ORIGINAL

and you get a message saying your chosen name has already been taken, please consider using something totally different, and not adding a number to the existing one. There's nothing wrong with doing so, it is your right to use whatever (decent) name you so choose, but it might avoid confrontation.

Admin are NOT capable of changing usernames, as they become the property of the person registering. The only way to get rid of a username is to ban someone (now there's a thought - who don't I like? :lol)

Unfortunately, new users can't see the list of existing ones, so issues will occur from time to time, so try to think original.

Existing users - please don't be cross with the newbies if this sort of thing occurs. It's not their fault, rather, down to the limitations of this kind of board.

Admin apologises in advance for any occurance of this nature.
