    For some of our official giveaways your real name is required to send to the vendor if you win a license. Although we clearly state this during the giveaways, it is still a huge problem getting all names from the winners after the giveaway is over, leading to unnecessary delays.

    To help streamline the process, we've added a textbox into your user profile where you can enter your real full name. This can be done by visiting the Personal Details page in your profile while logged in.

    Or hover over your profile name in the blue menu bar at the top of the forum and go to Personal Details.

    In the text box "Real Name:" enter your real life full name (first and second names required), and click Save Changes. Do not enter just your first name, a fake name, a nickname or a username as once saved you cannot change it again without the help of an administrator.

    Your real name will NOT be shown anywhere on the forum and only the administrators are able to see it. It will not be shared with any third parties apart from when you win a giveaway and the vendor requires a real name. You will be notified about this before entering a giveaway.

    Future giveaways requiring a real name will need you to have filled in this box before the giveaway is over. Your entry will be deleted if your name box is empty or contains false/incorrect data.
