There is an issue about the use of one’s real name and pen names in EzineArticles that is not clear to me. Note that: 1) I would like to keep my real legal name completely off the grid. Also, 2) I would think it is quite desirable to apply to get the Diamond Author badge so as to present a more professional image to the better and more important article syndication re-publishers.
With that in mind, say I open an EzineArticle account in my real name (and use my real picture as theoretically required for Diamond Author status), and say I add 8 pen names and all of my articles were submitted only under my 8 pen names. Upon obtaining Diamond Author status, will my real name and picture appear someplace on public display at EzineArticles?
Another way of putting it, if a Platinum or Diamond Author badge is earned, will the real life name get the badge(s) and thus be displayed on their page list of Platinum or Diamond Authors, or will the individual pen name personas get individual Platinum or Diamond Author badges and only the persona pen names be displayed?
Thanks so much again for all of your help.
