Leaderboard names

I've noticed tonight, my leaderboard has everyone's real names, rather peoples usernames.

Is this going to be a permanent change? or is it just a glitch?

That happened to me also, but strangely enough only on the app, not the website. I'm not sure why though.

It's the other way round for me, it happened on the website.

Another user reported this earlier today (it appears they deleted the post, or I would link to it). I believe it is either an A/B test, or a glitch. The A/B test seems more likely to me.

This feature has been on the apps for a while, and now on the new Tinycards app, so it makes sense that the web would soon follow suit.

I'm pretty sure it is an A/B test, it says on my userfile

"eligible":false},"leaderboard_fullname_test_v3

And all my leaderboard names appear as their usernames, so...

Mine too (on the web). It's rather funny seeing "High Queen of Mad Lurkers" on it... :-D
