It sounds to me like you are blowing away name in the URL when you submit a
new form.

  ../index.php?name=My Name

Is just like clicking the submit button on a form with:
    action = ../index.php method = get

When you users use a new form the arguments to ../index.php are taken from
the form not the URL - I don't think you can say
    action = ../index.ph?name=My Name  method = get
And certainly not:
    action = ../index.ph?name=My Name  method = post

But the solution is easy - just put a hidden field "name" with the value set
to "My Name" inside of each form.

Good Luck,
