Cannot rename unregistered account
« on: November 30, 2014, 01:12:41 PM »

Hi,

When I launched BitShares for the first time, I created an account "robin".
During the syncing, it told me that this name as already registered and I should rename mine.

But the system doesn't allow me to do so and always return this error:

I have tried a lot of different name, like "iofzeofiezoighzei", or even my whole full name (and I am sure there isn't two people with the same name) and it failed every time.

Thanks, should be fixed for next version. Meanwhile you can just make a new account.

Do not use this post as information for making any important decisions. The only agreements I ever make are informal and non-binding. Take the same precautions as when dealing with a compromised account, scammer, sockpuppet, etc.

I got the stack trace if you need it.

In the meantime, I can do another account, yes, but I already received my 0.5 BTS on this old account.
Can I receive 0.5 again for my new account ? BTSX8D2hhVwZSDzg6eYnGLZQvPfnYbF98Herwe1wLEUr8MRqSqubaG

Edit: nevermind, I just received 0.5 BTS from onceuponatime. Thanks !
