Credit for News/Content Submissions

This may sound weird, but I actually thought of this idea as I was coming out of R.E.M. sleep this morning. I only just now remembered it. Anyways, as you know all of the content inside the "Content" folder are either submitted by SalomeU2000 or HelloAngel. I don't know why that is but they're doing a great job in any case. Now before I mention my idea please look at the following excerpt from an article in said forum...

SIGNIFICANT TOURS

CASE STUDY #6 THE ELEVATION TOUR
By: David Yanks

The beginning of a rock n roll bands touring career is pretty standard...
Am I really the only one in Interland who doesn't know people by their real names here? My suggestion is that when submitting articles, that we also place their alias next to the persons real name. For example...

Thanks for your time. And thanks also to Quizy for letting me use him as an example

I've been able to put a few together just because some stories have sounded familiar, but it would nice if the authors were at least asked if their screen name could be included...

Cleasai,

Currently, the Content forum is a new thing, and has only been used as a means to post articles for Interference.com (our main site). Elvis, SalomeU200 and I are the only ones who can post or "publish" content as of yet into this Content "database."

Regarding forum names being placed into by lines -
The authors elect how they identify themselves in their article(s). Some have chosen to use their forum names within, others have chosen a more journalistic format and used their "real" names. At this time, I have no plans to put their forum name in their articles, but like I said, it's up to each author - and it's not a matter of the author being "asked" to do so.
