Authors, we need your help:
The way the current system works today, we can only accept one author name per complete system…which means, if your name is “Christopher M. Knight”, that there can be only one author name with that exact name.
This policy has brought about 2 dozen complaints over the past 6 months, especially as we add thousands of new authors…many of which have the exact same full names as other people in unrelated industries.
Some questions for you:
1) Should we begin allowing multiple author names of the exact same name?
2) How should we do it considering the current expert author URL structure we have today? ex:
3) Any other concerns relating to this issue that we should address at the same time?
Looking forward to your feedback.
