Details about the Forum upgrade
In late November 2013 these forums were upgraded from the UBB.Threads platform to XenForo. For returning members this necessitated some changes to the log-in process.

The old UBB.Threads platform had four key elements for each member account, Email, Username, Display Name and Password. The Username was required for log-in and Display Name was visible to the public. Usually these were identical but many members choose to change their Display Name over the course of time.

With the upgrade to this new XenForo platform the migration process required the elimination of the old Username and so the old Display Name became both Username for log-in as well as Display Name on these new forums.

Platform Changes Summary
UBB | XenForo
Old Email = Current Email (no change)
Old Password = Current Password (no change)
Old Display Name = Current Log in & Display Name
Old Username = Obsolete and removed.​
