  • Question

  • I just posted a reply to a forum question a few minutes ago. When I checked the forum listing, the name of the poster was listed as : MigrationUser0

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/worddev/thread/617aafbf-3c80-4956-9613-fc6e9836feb8

    When viewing the post, no icon is shown and I had to edit the message in order to have a signature.

    I've never seen behavior like this, but I find it rather off-putting. On the one hand because I'm a moderator and the forum community won't see that a moderator has answered. An on the other because this message won't be accredited to me.

    Note: I'm using Windows 7 and was automatically updated to IE10 yesterday, without being asked. I'm not particularly happy with the new interface - for example, the browser tabs don't always show the correct information (forum name). So I don't know whether this is a problem with the forum software or with IE10.

  • The problem with MigrationUser0 has been reported a few times in the past (I think there was also a MigrationUser1), so it's not related to IE10 or Windows 7.

  • I've seen the same problem yesterday also. I am wondering what is happening with the forum's software. More and more new bugs are introduced and I do not see any promises of fixes :( Some functionality is gone and nobody told when it will be restored if either.
