    Hi Erin

    While usernames cannot be changed by the users themselves, I will put in the request for yours to be switched to your email address. The thing is, I can't recall if I have ever seen email addresses as usernames on this forum or on users' accounts.

    You will be notified as to if this is possible. If it is, the username will be changed. If not possible, you will likely be asked for an alternative username.

    Since usernames are used in URLs (for uploaded files or forms) it is not possible to use email address as username. However, our login form allows entering email address in the username field and lets you login to your account that way.
