Second phanthom user name in P2 mentions

  1. Since I’ve changed my user name, I seem to have a second phantom user name when I’m mentioned in P2 threads.

    I am logged in with my user name “glckpress”, but the mention shows “schleifheld-2” as my user name. (“schleifheld” used to be my old user name, before I changed it to “glckpress”.)

    Screenshot: https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/308422/2718305/b9c291b4-c54c-11e3-9e33-6bedf9c7e6e5.png

    When I try to use reset password for “schleifheld-2”, the form says that user does not exist: https://cloud.githubusercontent.com/assets/308422/2718306/b9c2b202-c54c-11e3-9b80-c4aa8ea7cfc8.png

    Not sure if this is an issue with user names or with P2, but it’s rather annoying. Would it be possible for a staff member to look into what “schleifheld-2” is and if it can be deleted?

    Thank you!

  4. Hi Caspar!

    Thanks for reporting this! I wasn't able to reproduce the same issue on my test account, so I have brought this back to our team, and we are looking into the issue.

    Sorry for the inconvenience, and I will get back to you as soon as I hear back!

  5. Thanks for investigating, @gracejiyoung, I look forward to any follow-ups.

  6. Hi Caspar!

    So there was a bug a few months ago that is now fixed, but unfortunately your name change came before the fix. However, our team has fixed your issue and cleared the cache so you should now be seeing the correct username :)

    I tested it out and found that it was showing the correct username.

    Sorry for the inconvenience!

  7. Thanks a bunch, glad it has been fixed!
    This topic can be marked as solved then as far as I am concerned.

  8. Sounds great!

    Happy Blogging :D
