Hey folks!
I was wondering, to follow the convention, what user ID should you select if your first and your last name is already taken?
You can't change your birthname obviously, I just don't want to stirr this convention jello , is my user ID ok since my name being Salman Khan.
Thanks
-Salman

When this has happened before, It turned out that that person had registered before nad actually forgot they had. The other Salmon Khan registered in June and used an email address of salmankhan@hotmail.com Could this be you?
If not, you can register with something close, do you have an appropriate nick name?

We do allow one-letter abbreviations for first names, so "S Khan" is acceptable, and unclaimed at the moment. Also you are not limited to two names; that's just the minimum. So "Salman A Khan", "Salman Joe Khan", and "B Salman Khan" are all examples of acceptable names. Hopefully you can find some sort of variant that works for you.

Nope wasn't me.
Appropriate nickname you say, hmmmm My nickname is Ghost, is that considered "appropriate"?
Thanks though , I think Ill just stick with this one since S Khan was also suggested ...
