It's possible you've created an account through a third-party platform like Google or Facebook and were not offered the option to create a unique username. If this is the case, we have created a default username similar to "userXXXXX". Try gaining access to the account by clicking "Reset password" or going directly to https://www.hackster.io/users/password/new. This will generate an automated email, allowing you access.
