Hello you Shotokan Way’ers,
After much discussion between Emma and myself, but also because of the results of your vote, we have decided to make attaching your name with your post a compulsory thing.
We previously had very good reasons for not doing so, which I believe I have stated in the past, but the cons outweighed the pros, so we have decided on a new action.
We want this Forum, but more importantly, this site to be a place of learning for all Shotokan Karateka. If placing your name will create better and more honest discussion then that is a positive thing.
Please do not mistake me when I say ‘More honest’, as I do not dispute the sincerity of your posting, but this can be a worry among the other readers.
Please write your name in the signature box of your profile next time you log on, and further posts where names are not attached will be deleted or edited.
I hope you all understand where we are coming from, and continue to post in your enthusiastic and articulate way.
Shaun and Em
