What on earth is going on?

You can call me TC

I just posted to a conversation and noticed that my user name had been changed to "Array".

I COULD possibly have inadvertently executed a complicated series of clicks and got into the "preferences" box by mistake (but how likely is that?) BUT I have not typed the word "Array" for as far back as I can remember.

There have been a few odd error messages popping up lately but the smiley - hamstersmiley - hamster have outdone themselves there!

Caiman Raptor and Minor Vogon Poet have also been morphed into Array.

Very odd! smiley - weird

I saw that, but now you're back to TC.
And what's even more odd is that previous "Array" post still says "Array" but clicking on the name takes one to your normal "TC" User Space. Normally if you change your screen name it changes universally across the site.

I'd drop a message to the hamsters. smiley - hamstersmiley - hamstersmiley - hamster

I don't know which group of hamsters smiley - hamster would be most appropriate. I only know the address for gurus at h2g2, and since I can't find any other contact information on this broken site, that's as good a place as any to try.

Thanks, editors. I haven't been affected -- yet.
