Why isn't my name displayed?

Where is my name? I'm making a utility, but why do you need a name as author?
If I make it blank, it says:
1. No author was given! Select a value from the drop down or write in a new one!
How do I write in a new one?

Should be an option to write in your name.

We want an author name as we'd want to give credit to the author for their work.
(maybe there's some other administrative reasons, I don't know)

(also the Scratchpad function is not a general file-hosting service. Only Staff members will see what you post there. You'll have to use another service to host your image, like imgur.)
