Your username:

What kind of device are you using?:
Ipad pro 10.5
1 sentence description of the problem (I was doing _________, and then __________ happened):
I was visiting a user apparently name 2s4k, when I viewed their profile though, their username was different in different places (2s4k on top, and elowela on the project cards)
Steps that the Hopscotch team can take to reproduce my problem every time:

  1. View this project
  2. Click the watermark in the corner that says “2s4k”
    ….

I expected this to happen:
To see a consistent username on all references to the user
But instead this happened:
I saw inconsistent usernames, with a suspicious symbol at the end of one of them…
Here’s a sweet screenshot:

I think they changed their name recently and it takes a little bit to update but I’m not sure

I’ve seen this before with different accounts. The user must have changed their username to 2s4k after publishing those projects under the username Ellowwella.

I think that they hacked it to make it the illuminati, sort of like Petrichor’s backwards notifications

Remix bars don’t update. The actual username is ellowwella but when it was remixed it was 2s4k

Weird
Anyways did you know you can make a project be seemingly a remix of ANY person, and you choose what name it displays and whose projects it displays.
So possibly just JSON editing or the watermark didn’t update when they changed their name

Hmm, that’s strange… also really funny/someone should make something epic with it

How?

Save someone else’s project to your profile, and edit the original creator or something attributes in the JSON

Tested it out, and it’s not doing it for me. Has it happened to you multiple times?

Recently yes, but so far only thru remix tags

It only works in drafts.

What happened here was that the username was changed after the remix. Remix bars don’t update when the username changes.
