names with "Unknown" .

Please can you ensure that new members not having a board name are contacted by you to tell them how to enter one. How is one to know which "unknown" one is speaking to? or helping?

Agree with you there RR. I have just answered a new member with the board name of unknown.

It would have been nice to use a name just to be polite. Didn't think Hey you was appropriate.

But the laugh is if you click on the " unknown" you get their actual name, which im sure they are not aware of.
