I've been lurking for a few hours and I really liked the site so I registered.
But, it seems as though I can't use my name b/c it's already in use, I looked through the naming policy and it showed that you prefer first/last name but the first name could be an initial.
I really don't want to share my first name(For various reasons), but if I use T Smith, it's taken, however T. Smith is fine, which feels... wrong.
I'd hate for the two of us to be mistaken.
What do you think I should do?
I really don't want to give my first name, and I don't want something like "John" or "Joe", got kinda disheartened that I couldn't use my typical handle/username.
In my opinion, since the other "T Smith" haven't posted in four years, I think that it is okay for now. Of course, if the other "T Smith" does comes back, and confusion occurs, we will need to revisit this.
