Your login sucks noobs


Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I do not care to remember an account name for my login to your services. I have many other important things to be doing with my time than remembering what damn name your company insisted I create to use as a moniker for the forums which I loathe.

 

I WANT TO SIMPLY LOGIN SO WHY WOULD YOU MAKE IT SUCH AN ORDEAL? LET ME HELP YOU WITH THIS ---- > LOGIN WITH EMAIL. NOT USER NAME.

 

Fools. You are welcome.

I have better things to do with my time than remembering which of several email addresses I used when signing up with various forums!

 

If you like spam, there’s nothing to stop you changing your username to match your email address. You can even include an ‘at’ sign, which strikes me as a stupid thing for the forum software to allow in a username, but something of the form ‘moniker-at-example-dot-com’ would help you avoid putting too much strain on either your brain or your mailbox.

Good grief!

Some scientists claim that hydrogen, because it is so plentiful, is the basic building block of the universe. I dispute that. I say there is more stupidity than hydrogen, and that is the basic building block of the universe.

These are not my own words but I sure like this quote.

Browser autofill. It's a wonderful thing.

Vega,

 

When you have calmed down..... It seems that this setting was overlooked when we last upgraded the forums, and had gone back to the forum default of username only. I have just checked the Admin UI and was pleased to find that "username OR email" is an option (it has annoyed me too, though far less than you clearly). 

 

Please retry, and keep the personal insults to a minimum or you may find the forum regulars less interested in assisting you. We "fools" who work here have less choice in the matter, but still have some.
