Default Name doesn't appear in users viewing forum

For the last few months, when I go to the forums, my name doesn't appear in the users viewing forum list.
I reported this a few days ago, trouble ticket 2675, and was instructed to log off, clear cookies, and log on.
I did this, but still have the same problem.
Any other suggestions?
Thanks
Ron Jahnig

Thanks for the suggestion to check my status.
I am not set up to hide my username.
The problem of my username not appearing is only on the forums; when I go to any post on these, my name does come up.
I have also tried several times to sign out and clear cookies, but this doesn't fix the problem.
Thanks

so when browsing the thread titles you don't see your name and also on the main forum homepage online list right? but here in the thread you do see it right?

if correct then go to http://www.rcuniverse.com/forum/onlineusers.asp and see if you show there. let me know about the above if I understand right and if you see yourself on the onlineuser list.

Hi Marc:
I have found a way to get my name to appear again.
Instead of scrolling through the list of forums, and clicking on jets, or any other forum, I set this up as my forum (on the jets), and now it works as before.
For your information, I did look at a list of users online, and my name did appear there even when I was having the problem.
Thanks for your help.

This is a bug we are working on. Turns out RCU is more active then it would appear due to this problem. Many users are not showing at the top of the forums when logged on or on the online user list consistently. sometimes they show and sometimes not. I duplicated this several times today. I have the developer working on the bug now. This means that at the top of the forums and homepage the users browsing may be severely understated.

we hope to have a fix for this in the coming days so you can actually see who is browsing a specific forum at a given time and how many people are really on.

I had reports of this a few weeks ago from my electrics moderator greg who noticed the same and I started investigating it then but really had some clues on where this broke after your note here and some of the replication I was able to do.

thanks for pointing this out.

We pushed some new code to fix this. Can you set it back to the way it was and see if it now works correct?
