Wrong profile name in my JE what happend?

I just posted a JE on the RABCK forum, in the thread about BC WC sweepstake, but instead of my own profile name and picture, when I saved, I saw that the JE was posted by noddlehead, I felt this so odd, so I left the thread without lookin up the profile. This is the second time in a few days my BC profile has changed when I'm writing a JE. Last time it changed back after a day or two. But this time I decided I had to report it to someone. I do hope this forum is the right place. And I do hope there is nothing wrong with my iPad or with my profile!

It seems to have corrected itself, Askeladda. When I looked at the forum thread now, your JE showed up as yours. :)

This happens with all kinds of BC activities, it seems. With just about all of them, it is usually a case of waiting a while: the system sorts itself out somehow. Frustrating, but at least nothing to worry about (it seems).

I've seen this happen, in a PM from someone else; very disturbing, though it does seem to self-correct quickly. However, there may be a possibility that the copy-to-self of the PM went to the wrong person, in which case it's a pretty serious breach of confidentiality, since someone could wind up seeing the communication of a total stranger. [I don't know whether this does happen, but in the case I knew of, the person who sent me the PM did not receive their copy-to-self as expected, and the person whose screen name was substituted in the PM was an inactive member and didn't report receiving an unexpected message.]

Yes, you are right, Stoepbrak, the JE has changed back to normal again.

-What you mention about PMs being sendt to wrong persons is much worse, GoryDetails, I haven't experienced that, luckly enought! But I seached for noddlehead after the mysterious change happened, without finding any BCers with that nickname.

I would have liked to know why these things happend, it does not feel very good when it happends. But a bit comforting to understand I'm not the only one who have experienced this kind of data distubance. So Thank you again for your comments!
