Description (last modified by ocean90)

I have two accounts at wordpress.org.

  1. Registered on September 13, 2011


Username: henry.wright
URL: http://wordpress.org/support/profile/henrywright

  1. Registered on September 26, 2012

Username: henrywright
URL: http://wordpress.org/support/profile/henrywright-1

This results in one user having the username of 'henrywright' and another user having the URL of 'henrywright'.

My question - With reference to the second account (registered on September 26, 2012), at the point of registration should I have been told me that the username 'henrywright' was already taken?

Hi ocean90 - may I ask why you've modified the ticket?

The sentence should read exactly as I wrote it originally.

Please can you revert the modification you made?

Thanks!

With reference to the test you did:

Maybe it has been fixed, but when I try to register a new account with my username I get a "Name already exists" error.

The way to reproduce:

  1. Register a username containing a dot e.g user.name
  2. Then register the same username without the dot e.g username
