Hi fellow translators,

One of our fellow translators recently has had an annoying problem - he logged out from ProZ.com and then forgot his username.

Of course, he could not logged in again before his username was found.

What can we do other than-trial-and-error efforts to retrieve the forgotten username?

Thanks and Best Regards

Hipyan

Some tips Nov 14, 2007

While Mulyadi's solution certainly works, here are some other tips that might be useful:
1.) Using forum search or term search, our colleague can find pages to which he contributed.
2.) By installing google desktop on his computer, he can search for "ProZ" on his computer. He will find his username on the pages that were stored while he was logged in.

Thank You Nov 15, 2007

Thank you very much for your contributions, Mulyadi and Atilla. Indeed, as I mentioned in the beginning of this thread, the problem was actually faced by my friend. Nevertheless, the information is really useful in case I have the same problem.
