Logged in today with my old ID and password.
Logged out and tried to log in later.
Won't let me.
Had to use my email address and old password.
What gives?

I apologize for the inconvenience.

There is a new security feature on the forum, where it will not allow you to login with your screen name, you must use your username or email address. This is to help prevent hackers from trying to guess your password, as they would also have to guess your username or email address in order to be successful.

I had the feature turned off during the forum migration, but turned it back on this weekend.

If you don't remember your username, you can log in with your email address, and then go to the User CP, click on Profile, then Edit Profile. Your username will be listed at the top of the Edit Profile window (right next to the words "Edit My Profile"), and your screen name will be listed a bit further down.
