Dear Concerned Ones,
Please look at the credentials icon of Surendra Nepali (Profile No. 17730) where my profile is occuring without my notice. When I contacted Surendra about the same, he replied
"I dont know what are you talking about. I dont need anybody's credentials. I have nearly 15 years of experience on translation only at RSS. Really I dont know who are you. Off course I am not familiar with you."
It is possible that when I was working through cyber cafes, someone has done mischief through my profile. Sometimes, it happened that I'd not logged out due to bad service of the server or some technical problem.
Whatsoever might be the reason, I don't want my profile to be shown as anyone's credentials in such a irritative manner. What shall I do to remove my profile from his credentials?

It isn't a link to your profile (I'm happy to say) it just looks like one (any member will see self) Jun 19, 2004

Dear Prakaash,

I'm happy to say it's just a strange bug - if you click on the red "verified by what authority" link you see your own profile (strange but true). Any other member will see their own profile too, as I saw mine just now, checking the same link.
It happens occasionally, with some profiles, perhaps because some link is missing.

The important thing is - please don't worry -
because you are the only person who sees your profile when you/they click on that link (any other member will see their own profile, and visitors will see something else).

(It gave me a shock when I first saw it too)

Best wishes

(Eng Rus Geo)
