Well, you can add numbers to your username.
like for example, it could be Internetakias92 or something like that.

How about this: lnternetakias
Use a lowercase L instead of an uppercase I. ;)

Internetakias, I fixed your name. The problem was that someone else already had a name beginning with "Internet".

The system automatically capitalizes the first letter, which is why the "L" trick didn't work.

I've seen the capitalize and in other wikis but anyway thanks it's dot com, you are the best admin ever!
