I had a display name specified, but after today's forum downtime, my posts only display my original login name.

Anyone else seeing the same...?

P.S. yes, I see that 'jochemd' is now only 'jochemd'.

Claudio,

For me, that is the least of my worries. I come off looking the fool, when the forum is not hosed!

Well, I'm not seeing your full name right now:

Jochem.JPG

And I am also seeing this:

Yo.JPG

which includes a previously non-existent underscore between my first and my second names.

Addition: I have just noticed this, which is wrong:

Yo2.JPG

and the information displayed when I hover over my name includes some garbage for my email address, which I don't know if it can be used to reconstruct my address, which I have asked to be kept private.

Message was edited by: Claudio_González, Reason: addition.

No, why should I? I am visiting these forums, with no intention of going to the Adobe Store for the time being. Oh, and the Claudio_González replying you is jut me, same old Claudio González, but given a second identity by Clearspace/Adobe.

Addition/Correction: Now it appears that you replied to Claudio_González, but were answered by Claudio González.

Have you tried going and signing in under your email address rather than your screen name.

I have a problem with the Split Personality thing as well If I sign in using pjonesCET I get the account I opened with Macromedia. my name there is Phillip Jones CET

However if I use my email addresss, then I get this account: My name is Phillip Jones and my user name is listed as PjonesCET.

Try signing out then sign in using your user name. See what happens. The sign out and sign back with your email address and see what happens.

No. I'm still within my 24 hours, so I haven't had to log in. And I have never used my email address as my Adobe ID, and I don't see why I should start now.

Sorry, I have refused for years to use my email address as my Adobe ID, and I am most certainly not going to start now.

Phillip,

At least you got your beard back. There were posts where I was clean-shaven, and I have not been clean-shaven since 1965! Also, for a bit today, I had white wine in my avatar's glasses!!!! Hope it was a fine Puligny-Montrachet.

Maybe, when I wake up tomorrow and Log-in, things will be OK, like today was just a weird dream, a la David Lynch, or something.

I figured out what is going on. As soon as you log in your profile settings are partially reset. At the very least your "Last Name" is set to "Hide", not sure which other profile settings are reset when you log in.

First, congratulations on post 1,000!

Now, it appears that many/most of my recent posts are still up in the product fora. Have not checked them all, but the ones that I recall seem to still be up.

Now, after I got things back about mid-afternoon, during my session, and just between posts, I got flipped to my "evil twin." Those still seem to be up too. At least it will give the newbies something to think about - two personae replying to the same thread and with the same questions/comments. Let them figure that one out.

Jochem, maybe the effects I have been reporting will disappear when I have to log in again. However, it worries me to see this in the meantime in my profile:

casilla.jpg

I have hidden most of the garbage appearing as my email address in this second (and I hope temporary) identity I have been given, just in case there is some relationship between that garbage and my real address.

My email address appears to be hosed

I had noticed the same. It was just a series of random characters, without any POP syntax.

I have not checked lately, but feel that it's still probably hosed. At least that will cut down on requests for help from people, who are afraid of the fora. Heck, I get enough e-mail already.

Oh, I just hope that my e-mail notifications have not been reset!!! I'd better go and check on that, as I only have a 20GB mailbox on Cox.

I had a display name specified, but after today's forum downtime, my posts only display my original login name.

Look in the mirror. I thought I was the same person, who went to bed last night (except for a few bags under my eyes), but Adobe thought I was someone else! At least my wife and my dog recognized me.

It has happened to many. At least I got my screen name back, but have lost my Adobe registrations. Maybe they'll wash up on shore in Jersy sometime soon.

Good luck,

This is weird...

I am still logged in here after some 48 hours.

Then I went to check my Adobe profile; I had to login again.  My display name was still there: 'ʇɐb ɹəuəllıʍ'.

However, here at the forums my name displays as 'pwillener'.  I wonder why - do I also have two IDs?

This may not seem like a big deal, but somehow it is.  Over at the product forums, people don't recognize me any more.  People searching for my posts (being near impossible anyway) can't find them.

Your forums login now outlives your Adobe login.

However, here at the forums my name displays as 'pwillener'. I wonder why - do I also have two IDs?

No, you are still userID 116319. The forums now display your username instead of your screen name. You can reset that in your forum preferences, but as soon as the forums do a callback to Adobe's SSO portal your settings will be reset and you will be back to your username.

Thank you for the explanation; however, I cannot see where I can change that - I went through everything in 'Your Stuff'.
