Solved poster name gets changed to guest randomly

Post by insomnia on October 2nd 2012, 8:40 pm

There have so far been 3 times where a post after some days changes the name of the poster to guest.

This happens to people who have been a member for a long time, and are in no way guests.
The problem is new and started last week, and just now when I looked on forum a post from the 28th got changed to a guest post.

Is there anything we can do so this doesn't happen? Or any idea as to why this happens?

It simply means the user choose to unsubscribe himself using the forumotion unsubscribe tool. There is no way to avoid it.

no thats not what I mean. It only happens to one of the posts. When the user writes a new post it looks normal. One of the people it happened to asked me what was going on, and I have no idea what to tell him

Please check the IP of the guest post. See if it matches with that of varlan? Also post a screenshot.

it gives some posts that are mostly old, by different people, some I know still have their account and some posts are too old for me to remember who posted it.

it gives 3 different post names however in the overview:
anonym
Guest
saff!r (actual user)

but it was him, u can ask him if u dont believe me Smile
we dont even let guests post nor do we allow users to unsubscribe. Its turned off in settings
I am just worried since this have happened 3 times now during one week, that it will keep happening. it makes it confusing to see who posted what in the long run.

but they haven't, as I said at least 3 of the posts I know what account they came from and they still exist. Ofc some of the old posts is hard to say, but these recent ones I know where they came from.

I dont understand what u want?
Like I said, its not like they are doing it intentionally, and I am not lying about it.. I just wanted some help if it was possible. It seems that forum is just changing a random topic into a guest one and it worried me.

I am saying I dont know what is going on. As the user is still there and confused about it, and me and the other admin didnt do anything to make it happen.

what will it change if it happens again?
I will say x posted and the post turned into a guest post, and we will be where we started now.

Hello,

That doesn't seem to be a glitch... And that's the first time I heard about it.
Have you some other examples ?

According to the date of the posts, it can be related with a problem we had with servers.

It shouldn't happen again since the technicians intervened to fix it immediately Smile

This is confirmed by the tehnicians Smile
The problem with the posts was due to a maintenance on a server.
You shouldn't have this problem again now that the maintenance is over.
