On signing up for an account there is the possibility to enter a username ("What shall we call you?" or similar). I have entered the one I wished to use, but after my account was created, the username showed as a random alpha-numeric sequence. I tried this twice. Why is there no error message when the desired username isn't available?
Unfortunately, it also seems like it is not possible to change the username, so in that case especially I would expect some sort of hint regarding the username's availability or lack thereof. Highly annoying!
