Who am I, really?

rbob

    Browsing the various discussion areas I find old posts of mine identified with my original forum ID if I'm not logged in, but if I log in with either my T-Mobile ID or my old forum ID, I'm identified with my full name, which is a little annoying.

     

    Which ID do other people see when they read a post of mine? It obviously can't change depending on whether I'm logged in at the moment they read it. Or can it?

     

    I'm actually surprised that the old posts are still there; from reading here, I got the impression that the forum was being re-started from scratch.

            As with all forums:  You see your real name when loggedCapture.PNG in and when logged out you see what we all see....your user name.
