Presuming a user is logged in, where can they see their username?

Yeah, I had this question today and I got stumped, as it doesn't seem to be displayed when the user views their own profile information (am I missing something?).

I ended up telling them to click their name in the people directory and look at the URL. It's displayed after the tilde.

Please tell me there's a more obvious way that I completely missed. :P

Interesting. But how will they login if they don't know their username? ;) Maybe that is why it is explicitly shown?

Believe me, the facepalm was almost audible. Still, I didn't have a ready answer... :P

The problem is that sometimes they catch you in an unexpected moment (sigh) :)

Well, in Jira you have the possibility of entering in the user profile and there it says the username right after the avatar. But I think it isn't that way on Confluence?
