    Change of Username

    I would like my username to be my ubuntu one name, not my name from the e-mail.

    Thank you very much

    The system only uses the local part of the email if you untick the Full Name box on the Ubuntu One Personal Data Request page so as not to share that information. From the SSO login sticky linked from the prelogin notice:

    When you first login to Ubuntuforums with your Ubuntu One account, a forum account will be created for you with a username based on the Ubuntu One username (where your Ubuntu One account is an older one with a username field), or if this is a newer account with no username field, your Ubuntu One Full Name. If you untick the Full name box so as not to share it, the system will use all or part of the local part of your email address (the part before the @) to generate your forum username.
    I have renamed your forum account to your Ubuntu One account name.

    Please do not PM me about your forum account unless you have been asked to. The correct place to contact an admin about your account is here.
