Description Olathe 2005-05-11 04:43:17 UTC
Like most Wikipedia users, I have a Wikipedia username different than my e-mail address.  This causes problems with 
bug reporting, as I forget that MediaZilla uses e-mail addresses for usernames and I use my Wikipedia username 

While the e-mail address is technically the username for MediaZilla, there is no benefit in penalizing users for 
their imperfect memory.  It would be a lot easier if both the login prompt and the lost password prompt asked for 
e-mail addresses instead of usernames.

Changed 'Login:' on the login page to 'Registered e-mail address:' in our custom template file.
