Pretend this didn't happen.
I've fixed the "forgot username/password" mail to contain the user name
now. The login could be changed to use only the e-mail address, but I
thought it may come in handy to have a pseudonym that can be used to
refer to a certain user.
I wish all sites just did away with Username for login and used email or oauth. Users should just be able to set a display name for use on the actual site.
Actually there is a display name already, so the user name could just be
disabled. The main argument for a user name is to use it for technical
identification (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org or
code.dlang.org/users/username) where a full email address or a display
name with special characters or white space wouldn't work so well.
Of course, at the very least, there is no reason why it shouldn't be
possible to log in using the email address instead of the user name
(it's unique, too). I'll add that as a first step.
