Weird forum problem

You may have noticed that i just posted this as the user "master1228".

The problem is, that isn't my user name, I'm logged in as mrsteveman1. I have no idea who master1228 is. Also, this post doesn't show up in my profile, it says i have 0 posts.

Anyone have any idea what's going on?

to get it corrected by our engineers.

Unfortunately this is a forum bug that we currently have had for quite some time that effect several of our users. All users who are encountering this problem and have reported them to us, have been logged in our bug queue to get their account fixed. It's a bug that has been difficult to resolve and hopefully it's just a matter of time to get all of these accounts fixed.

I do apologize for the confusion and inconvenience.
