A question: Why is there names within brackets () after the members name in most latest posts that are not equal to (in my case) my name? Are those moderators of said post or something? Its very confusing anyhow.

Dear Grizabella,

the names in brackets after the nickname, is that member's real name. That will show if you have that set in your profile.
Hope to have been of help Very Happy

Correct, at higher levels it often combines a username in forums with one level of permissions with the parentheses of another at another level of access.

Sorry.
