    Username Change

    Hello, I just read the sticky. I'm not sure why my user name didn't combine with my older account as the e-mail should be the same, but none the less could you change my username to Diesel with a number after it if it's taken? Thanks!

    Re: Username Change

    Instead of changing your user name, wouldn't you like access to your original account?

    Iowan, sorry, for some reason I didn't think the first one posted when I didn't see it in resolution area... so I reposted.

    Cariboo, that would be great! Either way I'm happy.

    Re: Username Change

    gmail ignores periods (decimal points) in email addresses - Ubuntu does not. If you change your SSO primary account to the version WITHOUT the period, you should re-link to your old account when you sign back in to the forum. I will disassociate this account in preparation. Good Luck!

    Re: Username Change

    I removed the decimal point (as I know gmail ignores them, but that is what I had typed into my original log-in for ubuntu Forums. However I changed to have no decimal and it is still with the old name. Any tips? Thank you.

    Re: Username Change

    If you set the old address (the one without the period) as the SSO primary email account, it shouldn't have re-linked to this account (which has the period). I disassociated this account again, but if you re-connect before changing the SSO primary email, it will link back here again. Eventually, we'll get in sync.
