My user name is my given name + the adjective “restless” but it was flagged. I received a message saying so, but I couldn’t reply to it. I’m a real person, and will gladly prove it any way I can. My website, which includes the same adjective is www.restlesscraftsman.com

I think if you just took the Restless out of the name and put it in your signature, everything would be great. You can even put a link to your website in your signature. Your signature could be something like:

=============================================================

Restless Jason Taylor -- www.restlesscraftsman.com

=============================================================

If you notice, no one else has adjectives in their name--I'm not Hyper Nicole Alderman, and Paul Wheaton isn't Amazing Paul Wheaton, Duke of Permaculture.

I hope this helps!

Honestly I’d just rather not use your site. I have a major problem with unnecessary rules in society, and would rather people see different behaviors as culturally positive actions rather than deviations of the social norm. Good luck with your website, but I’m going to stop visiting and will stop recommending that others do the same.

this web site does have some quirky automatic omission functions, it does not like the way I write a lot of times and have to make changes, it is what it is

Thanks for stopping by.  That was a neat bike thing.  Your account is now locked per your request.

For example, my real name doesn't meet the name policy, so I go by my initial instead.

I noticed even David The Good (fantastic author by the way!) has changed his name on this site.  If he can do that, I figured I can too.  here is a very useful thread for understanding how permies works.

I just popped over to his website.   Called The restless craftsman...  By Jason Anthony Taylor ?  
Sounds like a real name to me...  to bad he doesn't care to use it here.

? maybe I'm incorrect, but I personally flagged a post in the singles section the other day for a user who stated their user name wasn't their real name.........

then I went back and checked and the message was edited to eliminate the bit about the confession about it not being their real name.  They were allowed to keep the fake user name, though.

As a user who also had to drop his totally fictitious first name of "*cott", which is not my real first name and I do confess that.  

I'm just curious as to why this other person got to keep their first name, and just edit out the part about it not being real?  I never even stated it wasn't my real first name!  Someone apparently just seemed to think it was impossible to have the name "*cott Tenorman".

Lol, it's all good, but it seems a bit inconsistent.

The following is from the first paragraph in the above linked page.

All permies.com users are asked to use a real sounding name as their display name. Obviously fictitious names may be locked out. ....  No names of celebrities or fictional characters.



I don't make the guidelines. I'm just the messenger.

Touche,

but that doesn't explain Raven.


I checked, it looks like a pretty legit first name in real life.  https://playback.fm/people/first-name/raven

This isn't society.  It's a private forum.  There are some rules here that can be hard to follow, but the real-sounding name policy seems about as easy as something can get to me.

Raven is an edge case name.  It's uncommon and unusual.  I choose not to use it because I value the vibe we have on permies and real sounding name policy is a big part of that vibe.

The point is to have a 'real sounding name'....and not to talk about whether our name is really our own or not, so it's likely that person had a 'real sounding name' and just needed to remove the reference to it's origin?

Jason's name would have been fine without the 'restless' preceeding it.

One of the things I love about the real sounding name policy is it's a very quick indicator as to how good a fit someone is with permies.

I was reading a post from seven years ago where some guy named Paul goes on about how crazy he is....

Well, all the best people are.  That's why I like it here.  

I can't say it makes much sense (to me), but like I said, "It's all good."

Thanks for the explanation.

That was me just now. I love Carmina Burana. Is there a whole video of it I could watch?

Apparently, yes!

I may be some time.  Especially if I completely overload trying to listen to this and burn myself out again.  But hey, it could be worth it!

The blurb says

This was the dramatic rendition of Carl Orff's most famous piece of music, how he wanted it to look but seldom performed as such nowadays. It was finally filmed by West German TV in 1975 with the close co-operation of Orff in honour of his 80th birthday. The various stories of young lust and gluttony are playfully and skillfully brought to life. This version of Orff's masterpiece of the sacred and profane was hard to find in Germany. Not so strange, it was banned there for decades, most likely because of its almost literal interpretation of the texts Orff put music to. I first saw this when I was 12-13 years old at the Goethe Institute in Bergen, Norway, with my father, sister and mother. Someone had managed to get hold of an 8mm film roll with it and had a secret screening. This was in the 1980s and, believe it or not, there were strong forces opposed to what they considered blasphemous content in films. The mixture of Christian and pagan imagery is completely consistent with the lyrics, which were found in a monastery, and are a mixture of sacred and profane songs, but were obviously too tough to swallow. Copies of the film were destroyed, but luckily, art prevailed.  




Check out the subtitles too.  You can either have translations or the original Latin, so you can sing along.  My dog's gonna hate me...
