Cannot log in since my username (email address) totals 31 characters. My long-running session/cookie kept me able to log in on my existing browsers. I started fooling around with a new Raspberry Pi this evening, and upon starting the browser up tried to log into newsblur.com. But it rejected me since my email address is too long. Thinking it was a problem with Chromium on the Pi, I logged off my regular browser (Chrome on Mac OS), and now I can’t log back in there either!
How do I fix this? I don’t want to use a different email address just for this app… and I was able to log in with this current address for a while so I’m guessing the character limit is a relatively new change?
Hello? Is this thing on?
What is the normal time to get a response for a problem like this? I’m unable to use my paid-for application because of this new restriction on username length, so I’m not sure what to do next. Thank you!
Try emailing email@example.com as well.
Hey, you should email me your username. If you know your actual username that may work as well.
Also, there’s nothing I can do about the limit, as that’s actually in the original Django model. They may have changed that in future versions of Django that I haven’t upgraded to, but it does seem a bit short. Email me and I’ll get you sorted out.
Ok, officially embarrassed now! I forgot about the plain username option… all is good!
But I am wondering how I was able to switch my email address to one that was too long from one that was a slight bit shorter originally… maybe different code paths or something?
Regardless, I am now able to log in again. Thanks for the memory jog!
Just curious - is there a way to mark this as closed/resolved? Or is that something that only moderators can do or something…
