That is correct. We have 'killed' the option to change your name, because why would you want to change your name ?
The IDF requires members to register with their real name, because of several reasons.
- The member profiles are tied to rankings and registrations.
- Some events have insurance included, which require real names to be used.
We know some riders have nicknames, but think of it like this. Do you think Michael Schuhmacher was registered with the FIA as "Schumi" or as Michael Schuhmacher ? The IDF strives to be as professional as possible.
Requiring real names for registration is just one of many steps, but is an easy one to do, so we did.
If there is an error in your name, we're more than happy to change it to the appropriate name. Contact us if this applies to you.
