    I was in the General Discussion section and I saw my avatar with my name under by the thread "What the ***** Disney? Another TINKERBELL MOVIE?". (I made the stars becuase the original title was changed, so I won't put it here.)
    Just to say, I did not make that thread, MrBabySpencer really made it, and I see the title was changed, but somehow the old one went to me.

    If you believe your user account was unjustly hacked and used by another forum member, then please contact the forum administrator, Phillip, as he'd be the most tech-savvy person to help you with your inquiry.
    Hope this helps and have a good day. :wisdom:

    I left a message when I tried to delete it. The title would not delete but the posts that I would post in it would.

    Just deleted the thread in question, hope Phillip's able to get your account problem resolved.

    I'd like to point out that I got an alert to the thread when you posted that message about not knowing why it was there. My theory is that something went a bit screwy when the original name was changed. Maybe you were trying to post as the name was being changed, causing it to split like that. I noticed the thread a while ago, actually.

    But I never made the thread in the first place. Mr.BabySpencer made the original thread, then the his thread name was changed and somehow it ended up under my name.

    Yes, Sarge's notion holds water. There are times when I finish carrying out moderator duties in changing or correcting a thread's title, and a new post comes in during that eventuality. Before last year when the forum got Facebookized, I'd be able to move those straggler posts back into the newly titled thread. Now, unfortunately, I don't have that option.

    Hope this helps explain things better. :search:

    You do realize that if you post in a thread, your avatar appears next to the thread title, overlapping the original poster's, to indicate that you posted in that thread, right?

    I know that, but that wasn't the case, I was the only picture there, and plus it usually says on the list who posted the thread. It had my screen name there. And I did not create that thread.

    Ed agrees with what I said. You did not create the thread. We have established that. But when you posted, he was editing the title of the original thread. Your post went through as the original title, but since there was technically no thread with that title, the software did the next best thing and created a new thread.

    Yes, that theory makes the most sense.

    Hopefully after the post I posted in the appropriate thread in Friends & Family, this will no longer be an ongoing issue.
    Thanks for your help Sarge.
