Moderators have reached following decision in this matter:
It is solely writers option if they want to include member id with their article. Before adding a new article, moderators will ask each writer if they want to add the id. Member id will be included only if they consent to it.
I understand the decision (although had to wait too long for it, and even a further inquiry became essential to have the decison to be known by an "ordinary member" like me) and it is well-justified.
However, I have the opinion that those who may not wish to display their IDs with the articles, should better follow the Standard Method
of posting their articles to the moderators by U2U or e-mail. It is not understandable to me that an article would be posted first in a thread with MB ID followed by in the frontpage, but will have two different identities in the author names. Such denial to include the MB ID to the front page by the posters, to me, affects the right of the members in the message board.
This is just my personal opinion and if it is not acceptable, just ignore it.
