Tommiebefree : (12 August 2014 - 06:25 PM) I di what was suggested and java said the username can be an email address so that's what I did. When I finally logged in I was told not to do that and that I should live with it.  So while I was doing what was right I was treated like an idiot and I was scolded. Not exactly welcoming. I get why there are rules. Being a gold personality I get that. I just don't the nazi aprroach I appreciate the welcome I've experienced here.
