    When I elected to signup to this site using the google authentication, it looks like my userid was selected for me. I use my real name with google but don't like to for game sites. I didn't see an option to give a userid for this site. Either I missed it or the userid is always auto-selected in that way. I understand the policy is to not allow changing userids, but this is literally the first thing I have done here, so I don't see changing my userid will "cause confusion".

    Mention how it happened, too. Avoiding your real name is one of the few reasons this site will usually accept for a name change, so it might be worth the effort to let you change your name on Google sign-up yourself.
