I think that bothers a lot of folks. I sure would not sign up to a forum when my choices are my name or email address instead of username. People were signing up with their real name - even though later it says it can't be changed once they register - they are still very uncomfortable given only the initial option of name or email address.
I've tried other suggestions from here and it is not working for me
Please someone give me a reasonable step by step to change name or email address to username. The rest of the sign up form asks for an email address anyway.
appreciate any help i receive.
