    I'm trying to sign up for a Facebook account but their system won't accept my name: "Tim Rocks"

    Maybe their filters won't accept "Rocks" because people were using it as a verb in a joking way, or for their bands or something .. ?

    Of course their help system is impenetrable, I don't really think it's possible to reach a human. It's important to me to use my real name because I want to set up a business page as well and I don't want to confuse my customers with pseudonyms.

    You could possibly cheat it by going with "Tim Rocks-Caricatures".

    I'm not crazy about the new system either. My wife was able to use her fake name, though.

    Not sure it has to do with a new system. I tried a long time ago to sign up with my real name (Tim Rocks) and it rejected it. So I made up a fake name to use and didn't really care b/c I wasn't that into Facebook. I just had one friend who kept telling me to check it out since he enjoyed using it so much.

    But now I would like to set up a business page, maybe multiple pages for different services, and it seems like I should have them "anchored" around my real identity.

    Thank you for the suggestion though, I may have to try something like that until some competitor comes along and stomps them into the ground for having an impenetrable help desk.
