    Username change request

    Hi,

    I would like my username changed to Enorah, or InTartifletteITrust if the first one is unavailable.

    Side question : why not offer the possibility to choose or modify default username when creating an account via SSO login ?

    Thanks !

    I can only assume that you didn't read this sticky, helpfully linked from the "Please read before SSO login" link at the top of the page before you logged in via Ubuntu One. It clearly states that if you un-tick your name in your Ubuntu One Personal Data Request page, the system uses the local part of the email to create a forum username. Which, since your Ubuntu One name is Enorah, this is what seems to have happened here - the system used the local part of your email address.

    I have amended your forum name to Enorah.

    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.

    I initially tried to create another Ubuntu One account with a different address and a different name that I left ticked, but it wasn't taken into account (in hindsight probably because it was too common) and I instead got stuck with the beginning of the local part of the email plus a number.
    Which is why I tried it the other way around with this one, thinking I read it wrong the first time.

    Of course, it means that I now have to get rid of this other account (by posting a request from it, right ?)

    To sum up, I'm an idiot, sorry and thanks !

    I have dealt with that account.
