 Currently when you register you are asked for your Name, which is the part
 that is displayed all throughout the site. The problem is people register
 with just their first name. This causes all kinds of confusion because
 there are duplicate names all over the site with no way to tell who is
 who. For exmaple, check out this screen shot. How in the world do I know
 which of the Marks is the one I want to add? There is no way to do this
 and it just causes confusion to members.

 The name field needs to be expanded to a First name field and a last name
 field on registration and both fields need to be required. You can still
 hold them in the same fields in the database by combining them but as it
 is now this is a critical flaw for usability on the site.
