    Default Stolen Identity...?!

    Forgive me if there is a direct contact button, but I cannot see it...

    When I click on my name anywhere on the site, for example after i've posted a thread my name has a link to 'my' profile, however when I click I end up on someone called ^^Sahara^^ instead of me, -Sahara-...

    I think this may be why I cannot upload an avator or profile pic... any ideas??

    -Sahara-

    I'll notify the other moderators in case they have a better idea of how to deal with this than I do.

    Hi Sahara,
    Sorry for your trouble. I am pretty sure it is a technical glitch and not someone deliberately stealing your profile. The signs in usernames sometimes mess things up, though I have never seen THIS exact thing happen before. We will notify the ones who can investigate and hopefully solve the problem.
    Hope you will be patient with us

    BTW, when you are logged in, do you see a "welcome, Sahara" near the top right on your screen? If you click on your name it should take you to your profile. Does it still direct you to the wrong place?
    And if you click on "user cp", where does it take you?

    I clicked on your name and it did take me to the other Sahara's profile. Strange it should happen as her name is all upper case along with double inverted Vs (^). It isn't stolen ID just that 2 people have chosen the same user name with slight differences which allowed the name to be registered twice but the system is probably not seeing the differences. As Gisela said she will get the administrators to sort it out. I am sure Salome will be able to do something or suggest a remedy.

    Thanks guys for your help.

    I didn't mean that someone had stolen my identity... just thought it was a catchy title! Maybe I stole hers?!

    When I go to CP the left hand columns take me to my profile, but the other Sahara seems to be the default one so overrides my ability to change pics etc.

    You could change your name to Saharazad.

    Sorry Sahara, I haven't heard anything, maybe PM Salome, in case she hasn't seen this thread.

    Gisela have you had any feedback?

    It sounds like someting to do with the coding of the website itself and might not be an easy thing to fix. It is possible that the coding aka programming does not make any difference for a - vs / vs ^ or any other marking.
