One tip to help everyone out and save the hassle of signing your name to each post is to enter text in your RCGroup profile settings. You can do this by going to "MyRCGroups" in the upper left. Click on "Edit Your Details" and then "Custom User Title". This text will always show up below your username and above the avatar. If you're logged in, this might get you there: RCGroups changed their policy and removed the automatic signature feature years ago because it was being abused with advertisements.
