My Username

My username is Hyper_Shadic with a picture of Hyper Shadic, but if I look at the discussion and the followers of somebody who is following me says I am still MCHO2023. Can you help me?

Wow, this is super odd. I clearly see your username MCHO2023 here. When I want to enter your account, I receive a 404 error. When I type in your real name Hyper_Shadic manually, I can access your account. And when I up vote your post here, I can directly see how your username changes from MCHO2023 to Hyper_Shadic and when I then refresh the site, your name changes back to MCHO2023.

Seriously, I've never experienced something like this before here. I'll ask other mods whether they have an idea.

I've had this exact problem with The-Mockingjay to Hyllning. It was resolved after about 2-3 weeks.

Thanks for letting me know. It's pretty interesting that this seems to be a recurring problem - maybe we can figure out what causes this.

I've seen this happen before when someone changes their name. It eventually sorts itself out, but I don't know if that's because it takes time for the change to propagate through all of Duolingo's databases or if staff did something to fix the problem.

I think it might have happened to pinkreadergirl. I'll drop her a note on her profile asking if it did and if so, if she has anything to contribute or suggest.

Thanks for the attention, and I found a way to solve it. The way is to change my username to MCHO2023.

Guys, I finally fixed this problem. It took about a month.

    This has happened to me, because I previously was sktomasetti, but,then, after about 1-2 weeks, it fixed itself. The only way people were able to access my new account was if they upvoted my comments. ;P
