How's this for a trend to promote? Use the same nickname on FST that you use in private communities, and be proud of both.
First of all, many people have FST accounts, and many interesting people are active here - using FST does not make you a newb.
Second, in no exaggeration trading has become a plague on the private community scene.
So stop sneaking around, and use one nick. This is my main nick, and I go by 'speed' also. I'm proud of the accounts I have on all communities I sign up for.
The current trend is good for no one, and its a lot of wasted energy. I'll offer two words of advice to anyone here, and anyone who wishes to share it with others. These will get you anywhere you want to go, in the least amount of time, for the greatest amount of reward.
1) Contribute to every community you are part of, in such a way to improve the interests of that community. Be a good person.
2) When you are part of a private community, respect its privacy by keeping all that happens within the site. Be secure.
