Yes, I noticed. I assume that you're looking for reactions other than "highly amused", though? ๐Ÿ˜„

Hi Amanda and others,

 

We also noticed it earlier today and have already filed a report with our developers to get it investigated and fixed.

I have a question though, do you only see names incorrectly in the New to Upwork section or in all areas of the Community? We could only replicate it when in the New to Upwork.

Hi Valeria, I only noticed it in New to Upwork. I was hoping for more laughs in the other sections, but I was unable to replicate it.

Thank you Amanda L for testing this.
BUG RESULTS: 3 of 3.

Bug is only found in New-to-UpWork there is a back end issue and possibly small security threat.

I was also Mark Smiley Very Happy but now my name appears. Although, my user ID continues appearing, when loading the page, instead of my full profile name.

Hi Lucio,

 

I apologize for the confusion the issue you experienced created. I checked your support ticket and can confirm the erroneous name you were seeing was indeed caused by the issue discussed on this thread, which has been addressed as Valeria shared.

I have raised a ticket last week that I saw an incorrect name after opening a post in Upwork community. The staff said me to clean cookies, and i did, but i heven't tested again in the specific URL that gave the error. If some of you Upwork staff check my ticket, perhaps the error that I detected is related to the bug exposed here.

Best regards.

Did you hire 40 designers to do that for you?

Hi All,

 

The issue has been addressed and everybody should see their own names again in the New to Upwork section. If you notice something odd with the way names are displayed again, please let us know. Thanks!

Umm, Valeria... (It appears to be happening in the freelancer's section only)

Hi Jamie,

 

Thanks for flagging! I went ahead and fixed it, could you please check if it's showing correctly for you as well?

Just a little background information on this issue - we know why this happens and have a workaround to fix it temporarily when it does. However, as you can see, it's only temporary and we are working on a permanent fix. We'll get the fix implemented as soon as possible and appreciate your patience.

It seems OK now, thanks.
