Topic 216108

A Website bug, probably caused by me, has resulted in a number of usernames being blank. The cause seems to be when someone changes either their email or password, their username is accidentally deleted. This should be fixed within the next few days, but in the meantime if you've recently changed your email address or password, please visit Account-> Preferences-> Community to enter a new username.

In the meantime, I'm going to be contacting people I see without usernames and letting them know where to change it. At some point in the near future we may decide to manually change anyone who still has a blank username to something like 'user'.

We going to go through and change volunteer's username which are blank (no characters) to 'User'. This will occur over the next week. If you do not like your username, you may change it anytime at Account -> Preferences -> Community, look for title 'Name'.
