ProZ sometimes forgets some information entered on my profile

A few days ago, I noticed that ProZ had 'forgotten' that my real name had to be used on the site (and on my profile), rather than my user name.
I corrected it, and -surprise- today I noticed that :
1) My forum posts are not displayed on my profile anymore (I have to admit that I used this feature myself to follow the threads I had posted in). I couldn't find a way to make this come back.
2) ProZ had 'forgotten' my keywords and profile title, making my profile appear as Incomplete. I entered them again.

I suspect that these issues are due to updates in the way that ProZ stores the information contained in the profiles. Has this happened to other people recently ?

something similar Aug 3, 2009

Something similar happened to me a few months ago. My credentials disappeared from my profile. I noticed by accident, I don't know how long they had been "missing".
However, Romina (amazing and really helpful and knowledgeable staff member) solved the problem immediately when I submitted a support request.

Also Aug 3, 2009

I answered some Kudoz questions, got the points but they were never added to my profile. There's a thread about this:

http://www.proz.com/forum/prozcom_directory/141508-bizarre_ranking_in_the_translator_directory.html

so you're not the only one that has problems with Proz's forgetting some information.

Hi all,

As you all may know, site staff is reinforcing security throughout the site. Some of the problems are probably related to this.

P.S: Thank you, Maria. It is always a pleasure to be of help.
