Today I noticed an unfamiliar name in the Kudoz questions pro FR-EN and I was curious to know where the person was from. (I always like to know who we are in the Fr-En group.) So after having sent in a suggestion for his question, I clicked on his name and my own profile page came up. So I went to the \"search for pros\" section, searched the translator by name: his name and country came up, I clicked on it and again, my own profile came up. The person\'s name is Richard Daniel Flight from France, and the poor man has no profile to be shown, it only comes back to me. Please repair the problem, or no one will ever know anything about Richard\'s skills. I also don\'t want to be accused of having a double identity!

Thank you for your help.

Exactly the same... May 22, 2002

... happened to me this morning. I also posted a message on that issue to this very forum - I think it should come up shortly after yours. I followed exactly the same procedure as you did, with identical outcome. User nickname was \"Autobahn\" (country: US) with no other profile info. He/she asked a German-English question. See my message for details.

Not just you ... and not just Richard! May 22, 2002

Curiouser and curiouser!



Having read your post, I went back to check for myself, and got the same result as you did when I clicked on Richard\'s name (took me to my profile, not to yours!)



A bit more research suggests this is happening to all askers. I tried three at random who have asked questions recently, and was taken to my profile in each case. But clicking on answerers, or people\'s names in forums, seems to work just fine.



Bit of an odd one!

Confirmed, Mary, May 22, 2002

... having read your message and Gayle\'s posting lead me to the assumption that this seems to be a more general site (programming) problem (in contrast to possible profile abuse). Hope the bug can be fixed soon.

I hope that Henry or someone else can fix this problem... May 22, 2002

Seeing that Steffen and Mary have had the same problem, I suspect that the entire site is in the same situation. Hope it can be repaired!

Thanks to the proZ team for their dedicated work.

I don't think it's a real problem... May 22, 2002

...since I can see all of your profiles - yet when I click on Richard Flight\'s profile, I see my own.



In the past I have noticed this behaviour with new profiles; apparently, one\'s own profile is a default that is displayed if the selected profile is not (yet) available.



Have you sent a Support Request in this respect?

I´ve just sent a support request May 22, 2002

But my problem is different than yours because my profile doesn\'t come up when clicking in one name in particular, but in ALL of them.

Responding to Ralf... May 22, 2002

Yes, I did send a support request right before my posting this morning so I hope this is now in the hands of ProZ staff.
