No forgotten username functionality?

Post any ideas for improving the WHATWG community website and forums.

No forgotten username functionality?

Postby i_hate_whatwg » Tue Apr 19, 2011 12:19 pm

Hi. I have registered ages ago but cannot remember my username.
When I click on 'forgot password' I am asked for email address AND username. What if I have forgotten it?
Surely the email address should be enough. That's what most sites do.

Not very user friendly.

Sorry about that. (Maybe you can file a bug with phpbb3 if you want them to support reminding of usernames in a future version.)

If you PM or email me ( your email address I can find out what your username is.

I could look in to this for you, But you could always message a forum admin with your e-mail address and then we could e-mail you the username or re-activation link manually.
