I registered with my Gmail account and prefer to go by my initials. I recently had a Q moved to the Apple sister site and it automatically displayed my full name. Is there a way to prevent this behavior in the future?

Your name is listed on this page, if you can change it there or in your OpenID settings it won't reappear...

    Tom, how do you change the name from the network user page?

    I said "or", but it seems this has to be done in your OpenID settings. If not, click the contact us link in the bottom of the page and ask if they could do it for you. Include a link to your network user page... Apr 10, 2011 at 19:41
