    When I comment on an app in the Android Market it doesnt have my correct name, where is this pulling the name from and is there a way to correct that?

    I don't know why but I haven't been able to figure out how to post comments on the Market.

    Ok, I just figured it out, so everyone else can edit there own for future reference. The Android Market pulls the name from your "nickname" setting from your Google Account Settings.

    The program has to be installed for you to leave a comment. Go to the installed program in the market. Select "Rate it!"...you must rate it. Then it will give you the option to comment.

    When I post, mine says Anonymous. My nickname is set in my Google account settings. Any ideas?

    I used to have to put my name in, then it changed mysteriously to my Google acct name without me doing a thing(that I remember)

    Anything you have already posted as anonymous stays as is, once you update your nickname settings and post something new, it will be the updated name. You can repost your comment as your new name by editing your comment then resaving.
