Thanks for your help!

I'm adding my default journal entry text right now.

Should save me a lot of time and totally worth the money.

Hi all,

Just joined yesterday and was going to buy some wings.

To add it to my "bag" the page requests "Member Name for Wings"
Is that actually asking for what I would call my "Profile name?
Could it be the "First name" and "Last name"in my profile. If so then what format?
Maybe its another name altogether and its only used on my wings.

Maybe I'm a tad dumb", but I don't find it very well defined and its off-putting. Best you don't have any impediment to someone like me purchasing wings which I'd like to do immediately this is answered.

Sorry to be so critical early on as I really do like the site overall, but this seems to be a lack of clarity and a mix of terminology as far as I'm concerned.

EDIT: shouldn't it just pickup who I am from the fact I'm signed in?

Cheers

Yes, it is. So in your case that would be BooksOnTheAve. But as far as I know, it only needs to be entered if you are buying Wings for someone else.

Thanks Moem for such a fast response.

I'll stick with my "lack of clarity" statement then.
I never even thought that it meant somebody else that I might be buying them for.

I'm off to buy them now!

PS - I've got some similar gripes about terminology on another page as well.
"Submit Journal entry"when updating sounds like its adding another. To my mind it would preferably read"Üpdate Journal Entry" . Perhaps I'm too perdantic.
Cheers

Then you'll fit right in.
Your Wings look great! And if you want, you can pick a different style from your profile management page, as often as you like.

It was a mandatory field.

Not sure what happens with a typo as I typed junk and it didn't object.

Are you sure you want to delete this item? It cannot be undone.
