Forum showing me logged in as different user

Post by Miss Lonelyhearts » Fri Apr 28, 2017 12:11 am

Earlier tonight forum was down. Returning later it worked but showed me logged in as fiby40 with 23 notifications and apparent PM access (or not - I didn't look). Now cycling between being logged in as myself, logged out, and fiby40. Forum software glitch or something malicious?

My recent post was not published and I was logged out. This happens often enough for me to have gotten used to it by now but the reply didn't get posted. I thought it was a problem on my network side but when I logged in and typed the entire thing out again it showed the standard 'a recent post had been made while you were typing. You might want to consider in light of this message

POST REVIEW
At least one new post has been made to this topic. You may wish to review your post in light of this.

and it was my original post.

When I try to log out of your account, I can not. This message is shown

You were not logged out, as the request did not match your session. Please contact the board administrator if you continue to experience problems.

Same thing happened to me last night, except I showed up as jacob. I've also noticed the last couple days I get logged out as soon as I navigate away from the forum even when I select the "remember me" option. This morning things seem more normal.

Okay, I take that back. I had a notification that I went to check, then I checked on my outbox tab and wound up in someone else's (jason's) outbox. So still some wonkiness this morning.

Soon it will be revealed that there are only three real people populating this forum with varying pseudo-identities. ;-)

Early this morning I also briefly became FIby41 and came here this morning to post about it:

Something is definitely awry.

Aaand now I'm rube.

ETA: when I go to post, I turn back into myself. But I can't log out as these folks, so it's showing me browsing the forum as them.

The forum was migrated to a new server just a few hours ago. DNS is likely not complete yet, so it might not work for everybody yet.

So far I'm not seeing the same issue occur for me. It was pretty obvious when it happened.

Was it a hardware failure?

Seriously, thank you. The internet can be a cold, dark place without this forum.

Now maybe the cold sweats can finally subside. ERE withdrawal is real.

Thanks, Jacob.
