To prepare for AuthorRank by claiming authorship for my content with Google I am unable to have a single name of ptosis with Google + and the name MUST match the Google+ in order to claim authorship.
I believe that this is the major problem with Hubpages is the inability to keep up with the changes of Google that says, "link content you publish on a specific domain (such as www.wired.com) to yourGoogle+ profile."
You can include your real name on your profile, in addition to your HubPages user name. Just add it on the profile edit page.
On my home page - OK. But I got around all that yesterday - I figured out how to make sure my name on google+ authorship is recognized by adding the domain (my hubpage homepage) to the contributor list.
I know that you wanted to change your name for different reasons. But, I really would like to have the ability to change my Hubpages user name to my real name. When I first signed up, years ago, I was just having fun and now that I have actually made a place here I would like my real name to be used instead of some stupid user name.

I noticed that the square block of ad usually seen at the top of the hub (when you don't use a photo or any capsule aligned to the right) is now gone. I haven't touched my hubs for quite a long time and I'm wondering if...
