Wrong account information

Post by sharpobject »

I just registered and solved my first problem. I noticed afterwards that my UserID (6047NR) is associated with someone named Dao The Phuong. I am not Dao The Phuong. I did not register in 2000. I DID submit the one problem listed for this user.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

This is a current problem with the registration system. You can't fix it on your own. You just have to wait for some time until the site authority fixes it own their own.

I think they are trying to use the old dead ID numbers for new users. So you are getting an old ID although you r a new user. But the user information you r seeing is still the one of the old user not yours, This will be fixed AFAIK.

I don't know what exact policy is following but common sense says that if someone has only registered but never submitted anything for a long time his ID is considered dead, like yahoo follows a policy of killing email accounts.
