If your drivers license or other government issued ID says "JL" instead of 'James Livingston' (or whatever), contact Mac Kerr or Doug Fowler via PM and offer to fax a copy to them.

We have a user who's name is "Cosmo."  One name.  It's legal (he had it changed) and he's allowed to use it on the forums.... after he documented that it was legit.

Have fun, good luck.

At one past job we finally got used to hearing a sweet southern accent asking for "Jimmy Head".  Another co-worker in the same office had the last name of Duda and his brother had changed his legal name to Zippity Duda, at which point the rest of the family immediately distanced themselves from him.

Although my guess, the honerable Abdul-Eq was pardoned from such a mundane requirement.

Several were grandfathered in on the real name issue, but voluntarily changed to not make waves with all the newbies. Real names are more professional anyway.

Abdul-EQ is a special, some would say "head", case.

The sands of the desert have not been kind to Abdul of late.  His camel has lost his way and we have not seen or heard from him in some time.  Hopefully the sandstorms will clear and he will again be posting here.

The issue is presumably your initials.  Unless they don't stand for something and are actually your entire name, that's your issue.  See my displayed name for the usual way around this.
