Changing your username

Author: Tunnelr.com on February 10, 2011 | Print | Bookmark
We tried to steer clear of a 'pick your username' type of setup just because of all the complications we saw with our other project, devio.us. To keep things as simple as possible and to get the service running as quickly as possible, our system generates a username for you automatically based on your first and last name. By removing the option to select a username, we eliminate a lot of support overhead for ourselves (it's not easy making changes to both the front-end client portal and the back-end user accounts without making a mistake!)

In short, we apologize that your username won't be the same as all your other online accounts, and in v2.0 we'll hit the drawing board to see how we can improve on the little things like this.
