View Full Version : User names with numbers at the end

Some users ended up with numbers at the end of their names. That was due to conflicts with duplicate names imported from the old board. The duplicate names either prevented users using those names from logging in or allowed them to log into the wrong account. To fix the situation we appended the numeric user ID to the end of those duplicate names.

How Fix it

If you already managed to get logged in, you can contact the moderators (http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/sendmessage.php) to have your name changed. You will need to choose a name that distinguishes you from other users. We encourage the user of your real first and last name.

If you haven't been able to log in, it might be for this reason if your username in the email we sent was short and could be commonly used (Steve, Fred, Bill, etc.). You can find your new name by searching in the Member List (http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/memberlist.php) for the name you were told in the email you had, and just looking at the posts associated with each user with a name like yours. Once you find the one that's yours, just substitute that new name for the one in your email and log in with that. If there is more than one account associated with your posts you can just pick one of the names to log in with and apply to the moderators (http://www.largeformatphotography.info/forum/sendmessage.php) to have your accounts merged and your name changed at the same time.

As always, let us know if you need assistance with any of this.
