I began participating in this website, which I like very much, as an unregistered user. I went to register and this Open ID thing came up. So I registered with Open ID.
Since my username appeared at the top of the SO screen, I thought all was good with my registration.
Not so. When I went to verify my email address, SO registered me as some number (member 637005) but it has zdvdla as my Open ID user name. I really would like to keep my initial posts connected to the correct username.
I can still get to my old questions, reputation, privileges, etc., but want them associated with my correct name and email, not the one with the number...
