About logging in with the Usename

So what i noticed right away is, that you can change your username, but it won't work for logging in, but what happens if i forget my ES_#### number? do I always have to send me an e-mail to give me my username or will there be a possibility to log in with the changed username? :smile:

    Yes, same question here...
    This loginname-nickname-publicname stuff looks a little awkward to me as well

    The ability to log in using either Email or Username would be best I think, as many other sites have done. This means that users who have an auto-generated Username are not inconvenienced.

    Tbh if they just did it so we had to change our email and password when you first login, the problem would instantly go away.

    Can you not log in with the Nickname?

    Yeah or just give us the Option to Change the username one time?

    Just allow login with email, and the problem is solved surely? I imagine the ES_XXXX is more helpful for keeping a track of backers than anything else. Faffing with usernames would just make that more difficult (but not impossible)

    Just out of curiosity, is the ES_XXXX our backer number?

    I will raise this issue with the team and see what can and can't be done.

    You can also use your email address now in order to log in. And yes, the ES_XXXX numbers are your backer numbers, sorted chronologically.

    Unfortunately our Kickstarter/backer/customer & forum database does not allow to change usernames. But once you select a different public name and login with your email address, you don't need to deal with your backer number ever again.
