Underscore just doesn't work. I had to change my username from svx_biker to svx-biker for the wiki Login to work.

Looks like you have to send an e-mail to support to do this now. Sigh.

Edit: Due to major infrastructure changes we're implementing in our users' database, we have disabled the ability to modify usernames in the Dashboard the only way to change the username is to delete the account and register again, to delete your account please fill up the form: http://tinyurl.com/WazeDelete.

You have got to be kidding me.... I guess I have to make an alternative account to edit the wiki and keep this one for editing. Urg.

Odd. That's not working, I've tried capitalizing my first name as well. Hmmm. The problem is likely my underscore, but I have no idea what it might be replaced with. Time to contact support I guess.

Is the database for the wiki linked to Waze? This is my assumption, but I have been unable to login to the wiki since registering over a year ago. Is there a separate database that I have to register for that I'm unable to find?

I ran into a similar bug only in my case it automatically turned the "B" in my username lower case so I'm "Arlenbystander" in wiki and "ArlenBystander" everywhere else. The only problem I see is with my user wiki page. I guess I can create a redirect page from one to the other if it becomes an issue.

I got this back from Waze this morning, so yes, it appears support can't change usernames right now.

This is a temporary situation.
Support will be very soon able to update user names again and I hope that soon enough this option will be enabled in the dashboard too.


Thanks,

Where did you get that information? That does not match what is posted HERE in the forum by the Waze staff.
