    ^ that. Even if it's people that I only talk to online after a while of knowing their name it can be tough to remember not everyone wants their name known and to use their username. After meeting irl it's even harder. I for one appreciate users like Jennifer and Ivy

    I've only ever met one TC member IRL. He's pretty awesome IRL as well as on here.

    I like real names over aliases. I sometimes want to call members I haven't met IRL by their real names too, then think privacy like Trin said.

    It's not weird, I just have to get used to it. I actually find it weird referring to someone by their username when I'm speaking to them in person, it's just that sometimes their username will slip out before I catch myself.

    I never really thought about it until I was going to maybe meet up with Usehername last week. Same thing with seeing videos of people that I've already formed a mental picture of. It's a bit like watching a movie after reading the book - sometimes you make a quick switch in your mind when you see the casting, and sometimes it seems weird...I think it also depends on how much people publicly share online (and therefore how ingrained it becomes in your mental image of them).

    Actually I prefer to call people by their real names, when I know what they are and the people themselves don't protest to it.

    The one I met had the same name as his username.

    That's dedication.

    If it makes you feel any better I was worried about calling you Fidelia IRL, as if I didn't care to learn your real name. I think it's hard to internalize once you have learned the shorthand of someone's identity in one way.
