how did member's name change?

in the FICGS__CHESS__CLASS_B__000049 tourney, Paulo Cerini after resigning against me (he put a Q en prise - no credit to me), became Frank Gavin in all his games. [now there is no member called Paulo Cerini] How?

by rule 11.2 last paragraph? Kafka, Calvino, Bunuel, or 1984/testify[RATM] (who controls the present controls the past)? :)

Good question

Good question on the name change - at the same time I thought at FICGS you are supposed to use your real name?? Normajean??

I found this in the Wikipedia:

The term Norma Jean can refer to several people:
* Norma Jeane Mortensen, the given name of actress Marilyn Monroe.
* Norma Jean (band), a Christian metalcore band.
* Norma Jean (singer), a Country music singer, nicknamed "Pretty Miss Norma Jean"
* Norma Jean, the stage name of Norma Jean Wright, R&B vocalist and former lead singer of the disco group, Chic
* Norma Jean (album), the 1978 debut solo album of Norma Jean Wright
* Norma Jean, a circus elephant with a marked grave in Oquawka, Illinois
* Norma Jean, Song by the Danish Heavy Metal band Mevadio

how did member's name change?

According to the terms & conditions, the site can keep players informations and games, however if it's a "real" problem for a player who wants to close his account to have his name remaining on the site, an admin may change it (at his own discretion, the player can't register under his previous name though), but the games remain.

to Andrew Stephenson & Thibault

Andrew Stephenson,
Normajean Yates IS my real name. Is Andrew Stephenson yours? from *mauritius*? doesnt sound mauritian to me ... doesnt that place have a - you know - reputation for you-know-what?
I'll stop this as soon as you do. Or Thibault steps in. I think i smell early signs of harassment.

normajean: penguin, mumble's mother, in the film Happy Feet. Played by (voice) Nicole Kidman
Mr Stephenson might want to include that on wikipedia.

Well, Normajean is probably not a so common first name for everyone but anyway please consider the rules about Netiquette and responding to provocation.

[moderated ;)]. Right now I am off to listen to some Johnny Cash songs. He is very popular in Mauritius. Not a lot of people know that.

Apologies to everyone including Mrs Rodolfo d Ettorre

Norma is a popular girls name and is of latin origin (meaning norm or standard)has no connection with Norman.(north man) Jean is popular as a boys and girls name. (John , Joanna etc) Normajean as a single name is completely unknown and not just uncommon or rare. It is like someone deciding to write their name as Susanmary. On the other hand in some places its quite common (more often for females) to be called by their first 2 names: eg Sue Ellen, Mary Pat Mary Jo etc Of course in many jursidictions (UK for example) a person can opt to change their legal name to virtually anything they fancy Simonpeterandrew for example.
