A user can, at his discretion, record a personal profile through which he can access further services, including the possibility to comment on editorial content written by the editorial staff as well as to intervene with his own contributions in the forum discussions. In the process of creating a personal profile, only the e-mail address is requested as the identifying data; the nickname (username) is chosen by the user at its discretion and we suggest not to use your personal name and surname for this field.
