My name is Ian and I alter the stickers that used to come with tools and also the extending rules that say "Festool Fan" on them.

My understanding is a Festoolian is someone who really likes Festool stuff. Well I certainly do...

My screen name is Jobsworth, because well Im a jobsworth. I have a festool shrine in my shop, every year I have and sponsor a pilgrimage to my shrine to celebrate my festools people come from all over to join with me in celebrating with food and song....

However, mid year next year, my shrine will be moving to the states where a new holy shrine will be created and celebrated by all.

Now I wish I know how to use these bloody tools....

While the use of real names is optional here it is indeed far more personable to know a person's first name when responding either to a post or to a PM.  A first name only doesn't really give away that much personal information in my opinion.  [2cents]

whilst in principle i don't necessarily disagree with the sentiment of using "real" names, for some it is a matter of practicality to remain anonymous.
i guess for most people working professionally in the woodworking or building industry then it can be a complete boon with regard to getting work and networking professionally; however there are some people (myself included) that have an interest in a personal capacity however wish to remain anonymous for other reasons.
 i keep total anonymity on the  internet, no photos of myself or family, no blogs, no social networks etc that could ever tie to me or where i live to being identified. this is not because i am famous or even infamous in any way. i am not a bad guy up to nasty things, i am not shy nor am i looking to rant at anyone or about anything.
professionally my work has brought me into contact with people i would rather not know where to find me either on purpose or by accident.
names are arbitrary anyway, they are merely a label with which to address others. there would be no guarantee the name given would be a "real" one anyhoo.
i think respectfulness and kindness come from the individual whether their name is a given one or chosen one.
i have no problem in using a traditional given name or offering a gender, however it will not necessarily be what i was deemed to be at birth and if "forced" to do so would make one up anyway.
