Issue logging in

This is a standard part of IP.B

 

You have two things. Your username and your display name. By default your first  display name is your username. It stays with you forever. Additional display names are just a way to hide the real username.

 

If I'm not mistaken, no one can ever take your original username. But display names can be released to the public pool.

When I log in to this site, I can't use my username because it keeps saying the password is incorrect, but using my email will work fine

However, if I use my old username when logging in, it will work

Is this a glitch or just an error? Haven't seen any threads about it, so I figure either no one has had their name changed, or those that have have never encountered this problem

 

Thanks

ok I see...

so no one is able to take my original name, but any other names I've changed to can be taken once they're free?

first time I've used an ipb forum, didn't know it worked like that

There IS a chance I could be wrong, but I believe that is how it works.
