Add infotext about username on signup page

Reported by: sitatara Owned by: sitatara
Priority: trivial Milestone: 1.9
Component: unknown Keywords: signup, username


At signup it isn't clear that the username is the name which will be displayed throughout the website. Since we currently do not allow members to change their username themselves, this results in many people asking the Support Team to change their username or in deleting a profile just to sign up with another username. To avoid this problem, please add the following explanatory text next to the username field on the signup page: Please note: Please choose a username you feel comfortable with. You will be identified with this username throughout the website and you cannot change your username yourself. Read more (link to:

I tested on alpha. Seems to be a problem with the input padding above.

Thanks, I didn't notice anything in Firefox and Chrome but saw the problem in IE now. Would have been helpful to know where you had the problem. Will commit a fix for this.
