No, you have to wait until after the conversion.

Lauri has already answered that question:

So, you can either change it to something you will remember or you can use the log out option at the top, then go back to log in and click where it says "Have you forgotten your login information?"

It will send the info to the email address you have in your Profile.

I don't think the current forum software allows for us to change the username you created for log in purposes. I could be wrong but I've sniffed around and have not found anything yet.

Again, rest assure, there will be no surprises. We are working on a gameplan to ensure that everyone will be able to reach the mods/admins to handle the username change if you need it. Stay tuned.

Everyone has a Display name. By default it's your user name. It shows up above your Avatar and when I quote you it shows up at the top of the quote box.
edit* nevermind that, I reread what you wrote.

What I mean is there is no where in 'My Profile' that gives me the opportunity to change it or gives any indication there's a difference between display name and user name. Never even knew there was until this thread.

I don't think you can actually change it once it's been set up. Back when my hubby signed up there was no option to have a different username and display name, and you're been a member longer than I have. Newer people who signed up more recently with updated software apparently did have the option. But once it's done, you can't change it yourself, I had to have an admin do it for me.

I would suggest that users go check the email address in your profile and make sure it is current.

Normally you can easily get your password from a Vbulletin board, as it will mail it to the email address that is in your user profile.

If it is not current this would cause a problem.

I would imagine the profile email address will be imported into the vbulletin database, making retrieving your password quite simple after the conversion.
