Changed username = new forum account?

Postby rstegeby » Mon Feb 14, 2011 12:15 pm

Hi,

I've changed name, and my old login stopped working, and thus getting a totally new account in this forum. Is it not possible to have a unique LDS Account ID that could be stored and used to identify the account, or is there more thought behind beeing able to create a new account?

I'm not sure what the situation is. I think it was a case where the issues created by using the LDS Account name wasn't worth the additional labor needed to fix it. At least not at this time.

But I've merged your old account into the new one. There's a few things that won't work quite right until a database rebuild is done, but you've got your old posts credited to you.
