Cannot retrieve lost password (or username)

Not sure where this should be posted, but i COULD NOT find a way to contact support, etc.

PLEASE consider changing this forum.  One VERY BAD thing for instance is having a username and email seperate.  I forgot my login - no problem i will just click on 'forgot password' - but it requires a username and email address to retrieve password - well i dont remember my username :-(  There appears to be no way to get around this, so i had to create a new email just for this forum (since you cant register again using an email you previously signed up for).

If there is a workaround, please include it here, maybe it will help someone else.  If there is no workaround - well, thats just BAD :-(

Thank you Marina, that worked.  Not sure how you found that.  It would seem intuitive that you would change this from the profile page: http://devnet.jetbrains.net/edit-profile!input.jspa

but i'll take it!  Thanks!!
