Feedback with the [you] thingie
« on: May 17, 2012, 01:09:28 pm »
Hi!

I imagine that you already know this but the [ you ] tag doesn't works properly if a hidden member is visiting the thread at the same time as you. For example, if I'm hidden and I'm visiting a thread with that tag at the same time as someone that is not hidden, that other someone will see my name instead of hers.

I hope that it makes sense!

It took a minute, but I found another thread with a non hidden user reading it ... and the [yo.u] tag stilled showed as "lollipop" for me.

I think that I explained it the wrong way. I'm not hidden, I was visiting my thread of ideas, there was a hidden person visiting it already and the you tag showed her name instead of mine.

So basically what you say is that if I am hidden and you are not and we visit the same thread, you would read the "you" tag as "Lord Drake"??

If Ixia's theory of how it might be bugged is correct.

The [you] tag is pulling your name from the same place the 'Hello x, you have a bajillion messages' that shows up on the top of every page here. Or should be anyway, so if it's wrong in thread it should be wrong at the top of your screen.

Umm... no now it's working as intended but I swear that it did fail that one time, I don't remember the name that it showed but it wasn't mine.

Maybe the tag wasn't used that time.

It was and I know it because it was on my own thread, which is where I saw the odd behaviour of the tag. Could someone hide and check that thread? I will see if it happens one more time and take a screenshot.

I have been hidden the whole time. If it didn't say Oreo it must be a glitch.

That is odd. It says Oreo when I look.

Now it says Ixia for me, I guess that it's a random glitch or something like that.

It's possible you're seeing a cached version of the post itself.

I didn't even know I was hidden!  This is a really strange phenomenon.
