This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
You have previously been warned on one or more occasions regarding adjusting your display name to meet JavaRanch standards. This is not optional. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it prior to your next post.
Your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious. To be compliant, all you neeed to do is to drop the "(apj)" from your display name.
Be aware that accounts with invalid display names are disabled.
I'm sorry, but this is the FIRST time I've been notified about this. The Display name is in accordance with the naming policies when I first signed up, which is to give a good indication of what my name is. The "(apj)" is "added value", as this is usually my signatures with email correspondence.
I find this method of communication for your rules enforcement to be quite rude and uncalled for.
If it must, then the name will be changed when I return from vacation.
May JavaRanch send you occasional email notices such as our newletter and contest announcements? Keep your email address viewable to others when you post notes? Default Topic View Allow members to send you private messages? Be notified by email when someone sends you a private message?
It may be you have the first one set to "yes", thus receiving the notices, but the others set to "no"?
I am not positive that would do it, but I do know that when I pull up your profile, I do not see an email.
There are only two hard things in computer science: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors
