I thought the sender\'s identity always appeared in the left-hand column of a forum posting, but this has not been the case in at least two recent instances.

All the following examples are from the Spanish forum.

Two without identity:

A posting dated July 22, 12.02 pm in Aurora Humaran\'s topic \"8 Segundos (o \"El Acelere Nuestro de Cada Dia\")\";

a posting dated July 22, 3.40 am in Julio Barros\' topic \"POEMAS TRADUCIDOS - NADA ESPECIAL, PERIO QUERIA COMPARTIRLOS\".

On the other hand, one with, between the times of the above two:

a posting dated July 22, 1.14 pm in Pat Mazzucco\'s topic \"Agua o Coca Cola\".

It's quite strange Jul 22, 2002

I have experienced the same problem in some previous instances with other postings, but it seems it\'s a \"local\" problem, I mean, I can see perfectly the names of the sender in the postings you mention but I can\'t see the name of the sender in some others.



I guess we are not the only two who have this problem.



To be continued...



Regards.

New forum user, I suspect Jul 22, 2002

Hi Jack,

I\'ve noticed this on a regular basis; if I remember correctly, this is normal behaviour in the case of new members posting to the forum area for the first time. In contrast to paying members, their profiles must be cleared by ProZ staff before it becomes visible.



(Henry, Jason: correct me if I\'m wrong...)

It is as Ralf says Jul 22, 2002

There is nothing fishy about this; when new members post a message, their names take a while to show up. If you check the \"anonymous\" message a few days later, you\'ll see their names and language combinations as usual.

right, ralf. Jul 22, 2002

If a person registers and immediately posts something to the forums, their name won\'t appear.
