Might I add that there should be an easier way for users to change their name to their full name on this forum. Too often we have to remind newcomers to change their name, then face the issue of how to change it.

All set, Adi.

 

Victor, the forum registration form asks registrants for their "Real Full Name". Most people follow that direction.

 

If there was an easy way for members to change their name, some would change it to a fake name to achieve convenient anonymity.

Maybe this can be a sticky topic? I have unfortunately fell victim to the same mistake.  Could I have my username changed to Kevin Jacobsen?

Hi, this Name issue has been bugging me. I went to the Create Account page, and yes, it does ask for the user's Real Full Name, but that would require the user to read it. 

I had tow slight design ideas that might help. 

First idea would be to have some placeholder text (see photoshop mockup) in the box to guide the user. 

Second idea would be to have two separate boxes, one for the First Name (ideally with a placeholder text as well) then bellow a second line for the Last Name. Then have the result of both cases added together to create the Username string.
