Requester field permanently set to "false"

In my tickets, when generated at the portal, the Requester field is set to "false," and cannot be edited. This is obviously a problem, because I need to know who submitted a ticket, and from what Organization they are sending a request from. I've created a workaround in the form of custom fields for the user to fill in, but it looks redundant, and does not allow me to sort my tickets, and it makes me have to put each ticket into its organizational box manually, which is a headache. What's going on? When I create a ticket on behalf of a customer, the rerquester field is there. Is there a setting I'm missing, or is this like the CC field issue?
