    GUYS SERIOUS PROBLEM HERE THIS CANT WAIT

    PLEASE HELP ME

    I was worried that someone had hacked my profile because I thought someone logged in to my profile and changed my avatar picture to @psionandy profile picture but THEN THIS HAPPENED (yes I was logged in as this user for a very short duration logged in as @psionandy don't worry I am not the kind of scum you think I am didn't touch anything even you think I am bad news. I can assure you I am no racist in fact I believe the Allies are to blame for ww2 - Hitler was just a symptom of the Allies abuse. But anyway I must be an adult and burry the hatchet and move on and I must not be a child and forget and move on)

    And now 2 seconds ago I was logged in as @LV426 !!!!

    This time I got clever and actually used my phone to take a clear screen shot of the incident wow!

    Because I was on full allert this time round I took a screen shot of what was happening.

    Please can someone explain to me what is going on?

    Please see that attached photo.

    Don't worry @LV426 buddy I didn't touch a thing just quickly logged out in fear I am not that kind of person.

    What the hell is going on!?

    When you cross an elephant with a rhinoceros what do you get? "Eliphino" (say it out loud ;) )

    Seriously, it's a glitch with the update to bring us into compliance with the GDPR, or so we assume since the top teams are busy working on it.

    I moved this here where we discuss forum issues. I myself have see this bug over the last 18 hours. I'm not sure what is causing it.

    This is a bit concerning if people can log in with a moderator identity!

    Has anyone actually verified that although you seem logged in as another user that you can actually post as them?

    Well, last night I got logged in as an "admin" but couldn't see anything. Earlier today I was logged in as a member for a few seconds and again couldn't click anything.

    Biggest problem I see is, once you get roaches, they're nearly impossible to get rid of. My condolences to psionandy and LV426.

    I would recommend any users concerned about their security here download an app like Thenticate and enable 2-step authentication for the forum.

    While I haven't seen any indication you can access or change any information when you see another users profile as your own, it can't hurt to lock down your account a little more.

    Is this where we make the grand reveal that we were the same person all along? Or should I keep quiet?
