Having recently engaged Glenn in a discussion, I couldn’t imagine what the title of your post was all about. Once I read your post, I nodded knowingly. Same thing has happened to me, maybe 1 out of 10 times that I visit this site.
Another weird thing I’ve been seeing lately (since the forum format changes anyway) is that my most recent post doesn’t show up unless I’m logged in. That ever happen to anyone else?
Maybe if enough people can corroborate this, it’ll get Grant’s attention and he can fix it.
OK, just before I logged in it said “Welcome back Ron Draney!” but corrected it once I logged in. So it ain’t always “Glenn” in the welcome message. Something weird is definitely happening here. I checked, and Ron hasn’t made any recent posts, though he might have logged in and out w/o posting.
Could it be that the forum software is just guessing who’s visiting, and selecting a username that has a high number of posts? Probably not.
Not like that’s a huge issue. What bothers me more is having to log in to see my most recent post. But even that glitch seems to fix itself after a certain amount of time.
My greeting does not say “welcome back,” it says, “Howdy, Dick.” It’s like someone is bugging my life. I say “Howdy” instead of “Hello” everywhere I go.
That ‘Welcome back’ appears next to your image on the forums page before logging in. And today, I noticed I was addressed as ‘guest’. Seems Grant has reset the software memory.
Right beneath the underlined words Discussion Forum is my icon and the words, “You are logged in as Dick.” Like I said, I never log out so that is always there, so after reading all of this I logged out to see what would be there. It said, “Consider logging in as Guest.” I’m not going to experiment any more because everything works fine for me.
