Landing Page Corrupted/Wrong Username - Bug?


Hello,

I just accessed the site and landed on the default page for the forum where the address is the following: https://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/

What immediately struck me was finding that I had not only been signed in but as a different user (all via simply accessing the page). At least, this was my initial observation.

Freaking out, thinking I'd get nailed for an obvious misunderstanding, I clicked on the logout link found on the page. It worked, and I was taken to that page everyone sees when they logout.

Thinking I discovered a bug, I logged on with my own account and in the middle of typing this post, felt the need to reproduce this weird glitch.

So, now while still logged-in to my account, I yet again visited the above linked-to page. To my surprise, I again see the wrong username in the top section where it's usually displayed.

Curious as to what happens, I clicked on the Private Messages link and the page it took me to was the expected one (with accurate PMs) where the correct username was now being displayed at top.

Till now, I haven't tested any other specific page while logged out but this glitch happened to me both while logged in and not logged in. While logged in, it appears that only the landing page or forum index is the page with the weird glitch.

Is this affecting anyone else or is this just me?


P.S. - I took a screenshot of what I see, but to avoid any conflicts, I omitted the image. On request, I would be more than happy to provide it to someone via private channels.

Peresphone here too

While you SCREAM at your woman, there's a man, wishing he could talk softly in her ear...

While you HUMILIATE, OFFEND, & INSULT her,
there's a man flirting with her, & reminding her, how wonderful she is.

While you HURT your woman,
there's a man wishing he could show her love

While you make your woman CRY,
there's a man stealing smiles from her.

Can you please respond to this now/asap? If I click on my pms it leads me to @rabidfoxes pms. This is a serious security/privacy issue, please fix this.

Also if I click edit friends because I wanted to view my own list it leads me to socialanxietyandme or someone's with a similar name to that.

So depending on what link I click on there are several different posters accounts it says I'm logged in as.

Well, that worked. But I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't still messed up and this page is only working for me temporarily. Some pages display correctly and some don't.

Holy ****ing Jesus, this is messed up. This is Ape in space. I became Helena when going to the announcements section, and in this section I became IAmCodeMonkey. While typing this reply, I'm Ape in space as I should be, but who knows what I will appear as when I submit...

They should've saved this a week for April 1st, would've been perfect then.

Hasn't affected me yet, though. Perhaps one has to log out first?

I don't know if this will even post, but this is Ape in space. It was showing that I was Helena at first, now it's showing that I'm IAmCodeMonkey. While typing this, it's showing that I'm Ape in space as I should be, but who knows what will happen when I submit. This is the second time I'm trying to post. The first one disappeared into the ether.

lmao you have the power now.

Seriously though I feel like we're part of some failed attempt at a social experiment.
