-2?

Both here and on The Bump, a few posters have been randomly being given a -2 after their username. No one seems to have any idea why.

    Hey there,

    There was an issue that came up where users were able to create similar usernames, just with different capitalization and it was causing quite a few errors. Tech implemented a fix to add '-#' to duplicate usernames in order to fix those errors, but I'm happy to fix anyone's username who had a '-2' added. 

    Thanks!

    I appreciate the reply, but this seems really odd to me. I can understand the numbers being added to new users who try to choose the same username as someone else, but why do they add on to usernames that joined a long time ago? I've never seen that happen in any other forum.
