    Both show in the member list on page 38, but when you put your pointer over your User Name and look at the lower left corner of the screen it doesn't show the . , so it goes to the newbie.

    So at least you didn't get hacked.

    There is obviously a bug in the forum software. It doesn't recognize like names. For example there is another TheKid registered here. I use The kid. Space should not be allowed in a username. That would have forced me to use something different. It also would have forced the new user in this case to use another name. If spaces are going to be allowed, then the developers need to step up and add more comparison checking in their security to prevent this. The difference in passwords should have directed to the correct user. Then display the correct data. It does not. Now that we know it exist, we may see more of it until the bug it dealt with.

    Depending how you search it will show both or each. There is a pecking order on how the names are listed. Allowing (.) (-) (space) must have revealed a bug in the software. It seems the (space) took over the (.) I tried to create a new account using those wildcards and the system kicked the name out everytime. The software may have been detecting my URL and prevented a duplicate accound. I do know that passwords are Case sensitive. -=tk=-

    I saw that too. The software should have caught that. This could open up a can of worms.

    Notice in the URI that I added an extra period (between the d and the s)...

    forums work using a database...the forum script connects to the database and runs a query...the issue seems to be with the query parameter syntax when it sees a single "." it returns the first (or last) entry...

    Yep, and that database is usually powered by MySQL. It's not as powerful as Oracle, but it gets the job done.
