Author Topic: Another User's Comment Showed Up as Me  (Read 983 times)

I posted a thread in Creativity, and a user called Sport both posted there and sent me a PM. Yet his post showed up as if I had made it. From what I can tell, it's like I posted it; I can even modify the post. I guess it goes without saying that I didn't make that post, but I have no clue how it happened either. This user has no history on the site other than he exists and made an account; his post count is even zero. It just seems very odd to me that I'd make a thread, posting a poem, and a user with no record would post a comment at all, much less one that showed up as me. Has this ever happened before? Did he hijack my account somehow?

*edit* I'm not exactly sure what to do about this. I can modify the post, so I guess I can "delete" what he said.

Uhm, don't delete it, it's noted that it happened and it's an interesting example of an interesting bug.

I don't really know how the forum's "system" works so all I can think of is this Sport person has like, maybe an identical user id or something?
Could you PM them to post in this thread? I can't seem to find the user, unless the name is sporty.

This is indeed very bizarre... your IP address is identical and everything. I've never seen anything like this before and I can't imagine what it could be... you say that they sent you a PM? On the PM, did it look as if the message was from you, or could you see who this "Sport" member is? Can you either forward their PM (or post a screenshot of it), or link to this person's profile if you have it?

In the thread itself, the user did sign their post as "sporty", so it's safe to assume it's the same sporty who signed up on the 11th. Apparently they were last online at around 5 am pacific time.

Seems like a forum glitch, but I don't know. I guess next time this sporty is online we can have them post again and see if it does the same thing.
