    I'm not quite sure if this would be considered as bug, if it isn't then i sincerely apologise.. Well i was on juts a while ago and while i was in the process of replying to a thread (espen's thread http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=181274) i realised that when i pressed the send button my username had changed to King Zargo, I'm not quite sure how this happened but i was quickly assured that it happens but very rarely so i don't have to worry..

    Sounds like you logged in as him, its been known to happen once in a while. Its a session ID bug or something like that. People have even logged in and posted as me a couple of times.

    Not trying to impose, but it's not fixed.

    It just happened to me, I'm actually BakuFunn.
    I clicked Login, and it just told me that I was this user.

    But I hope this bug is fixed soon. How did I log in as this person anyways? It seems as though he hasn't posted in quite some time.

    that's a very useful tip you gave me!
    did you click "login" from the portal page? i suppose you must have been using the guest portal at the time(?)

    Oh wow, didn't know this could happen but now that I know, it actually sheds some light on something that has happened to me awhile ago.

    Somehow "I" posted in a blog about some anime show, but obviously I didn't and I was seriously confused because I didn't know how someone could have gotten into my account. I was thinking maybe I didn't log out at a school computer but that didn't make sense because "my" reply was posted at around 10 p.m., way past school closing hours.
