I was trying to register (help to registera friend) a new account WITHOUT a plan attached for now (only user id, email info, password, etc.).
Strange thing is I DIDN’T GET ASKED about the user id (for the login into the system).
Just email, names, password, etc.
After the creation of the user id we discovered that the dreamhost system has AUTOMATICALLY and without asking created an ID, which it has “pulled out” from the FIRST and LAST name - so if my friend’s name is John Smith, it has created johsmi! That’s stupid!
What’s the reason for that? Why there was no field for USER ID?.. Did we do something wrong and should we try again?.. I guess, the user id can’t be changed
On the screen in the old knowledge base:
…I can see that there WAS such a fields before - but not now?..
Can you help?..
