Ok so I got the Stack Overflow addon for Firefox (and the Gnome Panel Applet) and I just realised my UserID is not the same as Username, its a numerical value. How can I find this to make sure I have the correct stats?

The way I know it is a numerical value

  1. Open Prefrences of AskUbuntu Firefox Addon
  2. Look at the User ID field, there is a one.
  3. Try typing in letters... It won't work
