Why doesn't my alias show up sometimes when I respond to a question? Is there a timeout function?

Me Too!

by Longoria In reply to Alias

I just out up a discussion "Convince me that I should change my password" and the Author (Alias) came up "Deleted".

Did I do something wrong, or is this related?

Nope. It's this program.

Happens to all of us. You'll find other bugs too :)

My curiousity...

by admin In reply to Curiosity

If I had it to do over again, I would choose the handle "user deleted" to see if I would pile up an extraordinary amount of points.

Otherwise, I think I might of narrowed this down a bit. Try this experiment:

Hit "Post a reply"

then begin replying
then get distracted by a user
then accept a coffee refill
then finish replying and post

It may, in fact, say: "User Deleted" when it posts

Time Out?

by petemcc In reply to My curiousity...

I've been suspecting it's a time out function but I was trying to see in those previous posts if paging back and forth or opening new browser windows had an affect. The one thing I have been able to determine is that if you want to make SURE your alias shows up, write your comment in a text program - word,wordpad, whatever- open the discussion and paste it in.
