An extra suffix in my name

Looks like my account name gained an extra "_1" suffix when migrating from the old forum to the new one.

I'd prefer my name without it, if possible.

 

I checked my profile, but did not see a way to fix this - did I miss something? Or is forum moderator/admin action required to fix it?

 

Thanks,

    MK - I've updated your profile for you.  The reason there was a "_1" added is that there was another screen name of "" in use.  Not sure if that was another account you had created with a different email address, but it doesn't look like it's been used much, so I renamed *it* to have the "_1" and removed it from yours.

    Hmm... I understand the old ITRC Forums screen names were unique, so I guess the conflict was with some HP Passport account or something like that.

     

    I think I used to have another HP Passport account years ago, but I've since lost its password and I think the email address(es) associated with that account no longer exist, so a normal password recovery procedure would not be possible. I don't think that account had anything significant associated with it, so its loss does not matter to me.
