Dear bartenders:
I see the following message appearing almost once in every 4 threads on this discussion forum.

Welcome to the Java Ranch, we hope you�ll enjoy visiting as a regular however, your name is not in keeping with our naming policy here at the ranch. Please change your display name to an appropriate name as shown in the policy. Thanks again and we hope to see you around the ranch!!

Instead of repeatedly posting this message, why don't you introduce this constraint while the user creates a new account?
Not that this message bothers me everytime I see it or it is difficult for you to post this so often - but just to make things easy for everyone...
Cheers
-Uday

thanks for the suggestion -- duly noted (as it as been before).
We're working on transferring the Big Moose Saloon to a new Bulletin Board system -- and also a name validatoin thing-a-ma-bob.

Please note that general comments about the site should really be in the JavaRanch forum (where this point has been discussed several times before), so I've moved this post for you.
