How do you see my username in the forum tolunayo or tolunay.duo?
I am trying to determine how others see my username in the forum. It has been like a month that I changed my username from tolunayo to tolunay.duo and even though the profile is updated properly, the forum posts still get the old username. I am trying to determine if everyone is seeing my posts as tolunayo or not.
I already have this issue reported and waiting for a fix. I am still hoping this is going to be fixed one day. Unfortunately, those that click on my old username in forum posts get not found error.
Update (Oct 10, 2015): Due to lack of progress on this issue, I've reverted back to my older username tolunayo
Once I click on the post, I see your name as tolunayo, but if I click the up/downvote button, it changes to tolunay.duo, with all the languages you're learning, your levels, and your streak. That happens to me as well, it just shows my username and I have to click the up/downvote button to see my badges. On the outside of your post (in the general discussion area), I see that tolunay.duo posted X discussion.
But I don't know how to fix this error. At least I know it's not on my end, and it's one of Duo's bugs.
Right, you have an interesting problem as well. As soon as I up voted your post, all your badges appeared.
Update: Actually, I see my badges also don't show up either on this post. But it did on others.
Update2: Originally my badges did not show but now it does. Confusing.
I used to have that issue with my dutch flag - I was a level 7 but it always showed level 2. What I did was just reset the course (I know it's a pain to let go of your progress but (at least for me) it works) and started again. I trust you can see my Level 5 dutch - if not please let me know and then I don't know how to fix your problem :(
And have you lost the progress and have you had to go back to the beginning? I'm in level 14, in no way I'll reset it...
Unfortunately, yes. As I said, it was a pain, but it was the only way I could find...
I see tolunay.duo. I clicked on it and it took me to your profile. After I upvoted, it changed to tolunay. Very odd :(
Hi, Myra (Admin) posted in my other post saying that they would fix this but nothing has happened. Do you have access to someone capable of fixing this? Please!!!!
still looking, sorry! This seems to be a tricky issue to find...keeping you posted as we investigate
Thank you so much. I am anxiously waiting.
There are a few people like me. For example: see jfgor (formerly jfgordy) below.
I abandoned any hope for this issue to be resolved. I have reverted back to my older username. :( I am a software engineer and this should not be that profound problem to resolve. I am sorry Myra you might have reported the issue but the technical staff seems to be ignoring you and me.
In the past, I have made some suggestions for site functional improvements but if they cannot resolve actual problems, those have no chance to be resolved.
I gave up too. I am afraid to go back to old ID, in fear that I will just duplicate the bug.
I went back and right now at least my profile and posts do match. People can locate me through my messages. The only problem for a small number of people might be that they started following me using new (now defunct) username and might not be able to access me from their following lists.
I don't know if I should make a separate report or not. Is Duo reading these troubleshooting reports? My problem is the same as yours and has been for a while. When I write a new post, it will momentarily use my new user name jfgor, but if I have ever made a post in that discussion, it will turn back to the old user name jfgordy. It just happened again today. When I changed my user name, I never expected this much trouble and it has gone on for a month or so. Help!
As said by Hafu.glindia.59, when I come here, from the Activity menu (and there I see yor username as tolunay.duo) firstly I see the post published by toluyano. I up vote and suddenly it changes to tolunay.duo. If I refresh the page it changes newly to toluyano.
I have other issue with my badges. I'm in level 14 in Potugese, and when I post a comment I can see it, but it changes later to 8... :-(
I see your Portuguese at level 14.
My biggest issue is that when people try to reach my profile to leave a comment to my personal stream, with the old username showing in my posts they get 404 not found page. It is a more serious functional problem for me.
Update: After I posted your badges re-ordered and your level changed to 8. Did you by chance started doing Portuguese from two different languages (like Portuguese from Spanish and Portuguese from English) It is almost as if there are several web servers or backend databases involved and one or more of those are out of sync.
Sure. I started it from Spanish, and later when I began Dutch from English, I saw there were a flag with level 0 in the English Profile, and I deleted it. That's the origin of the problem, I think.
Dear Klara-Ilona ,
I just want to point out that http://www.duolingo.com/Tolunay is a different user to this one.
As at this moment , since originally posting this , Tolunay of Austin, has resorted back to his older name of :
o on the end of the name.
Dear lindakanga, Thank you very much for the trouble to write to me. I know this by the user Highways. He had informed me.
