User ID: Your User ID is defined by the application. It is your first initial and up to the first seven letters of your last name. All special characters such as apostrophes and hyphens are removed. If a user exists with the same User ID as one being created, the eighth character in the new User ID is converted to a number. Once created, the User ID cannot be modified.
