No longer seeing poster's name in threads but can see link to an avatar in RSS feed?

    Question

  • This has been happening for a few days now. I only just noticed the RSS feed workaround. I do see attributions for Edits which at least let me infer the author of those otherwise unsigned posts.  ICIM I still am not using the threaded view and won't try it until there is a fix for the signature problem.

    Oops.  I just remembered an experiment with avoiding TLS 1.0.  In resetting Advanced Settings that one came back on.  I thought there was supposed to be a security vulnerability associated with it?

    Use of lower versions of TLS could allow an attacker to perform man-in-the-middle attacks and recover plaintext from encrypted sessions.

    Anyway, having TLS 1.0 makes avatars, names, awards, points, etc. (in both TechNet and MSDN forums) work again.

  • I do use threaded view and did see the same missing poster's name issue in a couple of isolated incidents.

  • Is this still happening? I've been gone for a while but everything seems to be working normally today.

  • Mike, for me it was very isolated. I think I only saw that condition twice.

  • It did happen a few times for me as well. Right now I'm seeing the author of the post at the bottom of the message.
