    Maybe I was blind and didn't notice it, but I just typed my name in the blank that said name.
    If it said user name, then it is my fault.

    Now my first and last name are shown as my user name, I cannot change it apparently until 90 days from now. I just started this account, I think I should be able to someone change it when I log in for the first time and see it is wrong.

    Just my .02
    I don't like have my real name on my posts, can a mod at least just delete my last name?

    Would any one have known that this was your real name? But now that you've created this thread we do. Not really the best move on your part.

    If it is just a nickname then why would you have even created a thread about it? Seems like a pointless waste of time to me. I guess then, there is nothing to worry about. Therefore the mods need not do anything about it ....right?;)

    This thread was posted before hours. But the view count is 1700+. Something wrong with the counter?

    I thought I was trying to be helpful by suggesting that they highlight or make bold the light gray line underneath the name field so it is more clear that is the username that will be seen on screen, or at least changing the name of the field to username instead of name. Changing it to username would be a better.

    Reading the rules this website obviously likes to streamline things and have them flow along smoothly, so I tried to suggest something that would help. I was not trying to waste any ones time.

    Oh pardon me, it appears that I must have misunderstood your issue.

    Jody is pretty common and probably taken you will probably have to add something to it, like Jody191173 or Jody Coyote

    The signup page does actually tell you that the name you pick is the name that will be seen in your posts...
