    Can we please have unique usernames?

    Kristi Taylor Level 1

      My email is my first name...and somebody else's too - so now there is no real way for anyone to distinquish between our accounts.  When I search my username her themes come up too and looks like it's all the same person.  Is there a solution for this?

          Hi kbtaylor:

           

          While it is possible to search for a specific user's content, since each user has a unique ID, that ID number isn't apparent to everyone.

          (For example, search for "userId:53394" without the quotes.)

           

          I have submitted a feature request for this to be added/changed.

           

          In the meantime, you can search for content made by a unique user by searching their ID number.

          To get the ID number, first search for the name. Once you have a result made by that user, click on the user's name. This automatically runs a search by their user ID. Copy the user ID for future reference, or repeat the process to locate content by a unique person.

              It looks like you tried to reply on this thread, but there's nothing but an e-mail header it looks like.

               

              Try replying again, possibly by going to the forum instead of replying by e-mail, so that we can see your message.

                sorry!  that is my anti-spam message...it was automatically generated as a response to the thread.

                 

                interesting work around but I can find my own themes fine and anyone elses by clicking on their avatar once I identify them but identification is the problem here since if multiple people are listed by the same username it is difficult to differentiate.  thank you for submitting the request, will be looking forward to new features you guys come up with!
