in reply to Automatically add name to replies

I don't do it for vanity. I do it because it was pointed out to me why it was a useful thing to do by kudra. In fact she used to have a link on her home page to Suggestion for post-naming convention and an explanation about why her posts look weird.

I think having it done automatically is an excellent idea.

    If the author field were shown along with the title field everywhere, it wouldn't be necessary. I think that's a better idea. Image what a subject title would look like if it were done automatically:

    And that's after only two replies!
      That is only if it is done wrong.

      If you look at how the people who are doing it do it manually we tend to strip out the header from the previous person and put our own in. Take a look through my posts to see what I mean.

      There is no reason why an automatic process could not do likewise.
