There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.
In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

My apologies... I clearly understood the naming policy for the website. Maybe I am not able to understand whats wrong with my display name or I am not making the changes in the right place. What I see as my display name is "Sabrina Kr" which is exactly who I am. I am sure I dont understand what could be wrong with this. Please guide...
The naming policy requires that you use your complete last name and not an abbreviation. It also requires that it not be obviously ficticious. And since that are very few last names that do not have vowels, of which "kr" is not one of them, you are being challenged.
Please either provide materials to validate your last name, or change it.
Also, please consider this as your third warning.
[EDIT: Just did a quick last name search. Never mind my warning. Although, I can't say that you won't be warned by another moderator.]
