In the settings there are the fields company short/full name. These are used in terms of service text.
I do not have a company yet. Legally, what is appropriate to write in these fields, for someone who does not have a company.
Those fields are used by the new site Wizard to modify your site TOS. You don’t have to fill them in. What you do need to do is visit
yoursite.com/tos and make sure that there are no "enter xyz here` or similar phrases in the text.
but “company short name” appears everywhere in the TOS. I cannot delete all of it, I have to enter something into these fields.
Right, but it doesn’t need to be a “legal company name”. For example, let’s say you had a website for “Amazing, really good, delicious apple pies”. That would be your long name. You could come up with a short name, like “Amazing apple pies”, or simply use your long name everywhere.
OK I got it, thanks.
