    e-mail as username

    I am making a form and my intention is that users will have to enter their e-mails as username.

    What I want to know though, is what do you think is the best way to inform the user that he must enter his e-mail for username.

    What the text that will accompany the specific field must say?


    At first, it must be something easy. I decided to post though so I can hear views.

    I would forget username and just have an email address field.

    Email:

    People will know what it means. This seems to obvious though, is there a reason why they have a username and email address if you don't want them to use their username?

    So , you are saying that just having an e-mail form field is enough.
    No reason to mention at all the word username.

    I am saying this because in some sites there is a form field with the label: username or e-mail
    I am talking always about the registration form.

    Well if you want to use the email address just use that in the fields and when there is a need for someone to login put email: instead of username. I don't really understand the confusion?

    No problem what-so-ever! I've been there. Don't worry you can use just email, I have done before.

    You can simply say to the customer on the form that " fill your E-mail as User name " that's it.
