One thing's always puzzled me with NintendoLife. Why does the log-in form require our email address rather than our username? Is it a privacy thing? Only NL (and by extension, Movemodo and Kinectaku) is the only place I know of that does it that way.
It's often easier to remember your username than which e-mail address you used to sign up (especially if, like me, you have about 3 of them for various reasons). Wouldn't it be better if we could just enter our username and password rather than email and password?

EDIT: Derp, made it on the wrong board. Deleted and remade on Suggestions. MULTIPLE TAB FAILURE.

Actually, you can log in with your username, but if you've had a username change that's where the issue is. For example, I log in with Prosody rather than James Newton, even though there's no user by the name of Prosody any more.

If you've had a name change, think back to your original username, use that and Bob's your uncle.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

...Oh, so you can. Heh, I took the labels as gospel.

How do you know my Uncle's name. Are you stalking me again.

I was logging in with my email address for ages but this information came to me in a dream. Anyway, problem solved!
