ive had my name "capt'n kitkat" for about three years on facebook. This is a nickname (kitkat) that I've been called for a very long time. I also used that name so people who were constantly harassing me on my other profile that I abandoned, wouldn't find me. It was like a code name and now facebook decided to force me to change my name or I could no longer get on. How do I contact them to get my name changed. It wasn't a harmful name at all and it protected my identity from people I didn't want to find me.

@katlynkitkat,
I realize you're (probably) not a drag queen, but Facebook has recently done a 180 on its real names policy, at least when it comes to them. See:

This does not necessarily mean that you'll get your wish, though. You'll need to go through FB help, here:

If I were you, I would emphasize the harassment issue in my request. Best of luck to you.

@jespah,
Thank you Smile how do I use this? All it shows me are questions and no where to ask or communicate my own (im on mobile. Is it different on a computer?)
