Issues changing username.

    Every time I try to change my username I see this message appear (Error: Your password is too weak: Looks like you're including easy to guess information about yourself. Try something a little more unique.) and doesn't let me change the username, I have tried clearing my browsers cache and cookies and this didn't work either. I have also used 3 different browsers to no avail.

  2. The warning is right on for those who do not wish to be subject to hacking and who does? Do as it it says please and choose a very strong password. http://en.support.wordpress.com/security/#choosing-and-using-good-passwords

    I am not trying to change my password though, I'm trying to change my username. What the message says that appears is in the brackets above.

  4. I am having the same issue. Any resolution on this?

  5. This thread is tagged for a Staff response.

  6. Hi there,

    I would recommend first updating you password to something stronger. Once that takes effect, you should have no trouble changing your username.

    Cheers!

  7. No, that is not the case. I did change my password, and I still have the same error message that comes up when I try to change my username.

    Some further advice not involving changing my password would be appreciated.

  8. i have same issue

  9. Im having the same issue... where is the support for this site? You cant even delete your profile. I have tried everything and nothing works. Anyone have any idea how to change your email also?

  10. @Sarah,

    Thanks for letting me know - I'm looking into this further for you.

    @Alireza,

    I'll check on your account as well.

    @nickbruck,

    You can't delete user accounts, correct:
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/deleting-accounts/

    That link also includes instructions for changing your email address. Once you have tried that, please let me know if you have any issues.

    Cheers!

  11. Hi Sarah and Alireza,

    I believe our developers fixed this yesterday. Can you try again (you MIGHT have to change your password again)?

    Just let me know how you do!
