thanks Raul :D
It is a bit functional system to recover your password .. because there are users who forget username

if someone can't remember their username then they apparently don't really care much about being a member to begin with. have them just look around for a post that they made. they will recognize their own posts usually.
or, just have them re register a new account. they will most likely forget this one as well.

I just tripped across this because this is probably the #1 request I get from my users. I like the notion that I should just say "screw you, if you don't visit the site enough to remember your username" -- but in my case the board is made up of thousands of highly educated professionals who may need to consult with one another on technical topics a few times a year -- it's not a fan site of 13 year old boys who talk about a video game every day. So that idea won't work.

Disappointing to hear that Area51 has likewise decided that this basic tenet of user-centric design in an account-based online system ought to be ignored; leaning on the 'security' excuse.

All in all, very weak.

It would be if there were events in includes/ucp_remind which there aren't.

Further it looks like user remind will stop at the first finding of a users email address. If it is allowed for the email address to be used more than once the query will choose the first one it runs into which may or may not be the user that is requesting the email.

Not really sure how that mod got validated given that one can ignore the username part of the request.

You can find that option in
ACP -> User Registration Settings -> "Allow email address re-use:"
