Why can't I log in with my user name anymore?

You used to be able to login with either email or user name, but for some time you can only do it by typing in your email. It's kinda annoying since my email has more letters than my user name.

This was changed earlier this year along with number of security upgrades to the site. It's safer for users to login using their email since that information isn't as easily accessible as your username.

It can be a little inconvenient but I think the trade-off is worth it. No one wants their account tampered with.
Thanks to Minho for the sig!

I understand now. Currently when you hover your cursor over login at the top right corner it still says User Name/ Email, you might want to change it :).

Thanks for pointing that out, I'll ask the devs to change that.
