Google+ Login then changing username

I signed into the app with a Google+ login. It gave me a default username. I changed the username to something else, but the app still uses the default username. Whenever I click the default name, it trys to redirect me to that username's page, but since I changed it, the username and page no longer exists.

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but no luck. Any ideas?

Sorry about that. We've fixed the problem and are looking into whether this was a rare occurrence or whether we have a bug with Google+ users. Thanks for bringing it to our attention!

Yeah, when I look at this post from the Discussion layout it says it's posted by "randrewfox" but after opening the post, it shows AndrewFox which goes to 404 page. You may wanna move this to troubleshooting forum. You can just click on "edit" and change it to Troubleshooting.

I just tried clicking your name as well. I also get a 404 page. (Though, at the moment that's not very reliable. I am getting 404's left and right for everything >.>) Good luck!

To be clear... my default username is "AndrewFox8" which no longer exists... I changed the username to "randrewfox"
