Why are posts using an Akismet username instead of my real username?

  1. Posts I make are linked to an Akismet username, so nothing shows up in posts under my author link.

    The main page links to my profile here:
    http://rotatetranslate.com/author/jestarjokin/

    Whereas posts I make link to an Aksimet user:
    http://rotatetranslate.com/author/akismet-c6958e66c7afb1cc6623e86e48f1d79d/

    I assume this is because I signed up for Akismet to use on my self-hosted blog, before I signed up for WordPress.com to contribute to a different blog.

    How do I fix this?

    The blog I need help with is rotatetranslate.com.

  2. It's an old error that used to happen when someone had already signed up for a WP.com account using your email address. Staff will have to fix it, and I've flagged this for their attention.

  3. The issue has been resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience.

  4. Thanks for looking into this issue. Unfortunately, it looks like posts by me are still seem to be coming up under the Akismet username. e.g.

    http://rotatetranslate.com/2013/05/09/primordia-i-for-one-welcome-our-new-robot-overlords/

    Is there anything I need to do on my profile?

  5. I'm sorry. It should be all good now.

    Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions.

  6. Yep, all good now, thanks very much! :)

  7. Awesome, you're welcome :)
