Not a bug Recent Activity showing old user names


Well-known member
I remember it being mentioned that if a user X were to like a post, and later on his user name was changed to Y, the post liked would still show as X liked this post, since this was a one time event, if I remember correctly.

Is this the same thing? Just noticed it right here at A user Z likes a really really old post that was made by a user's original account (Dragonfly) and the recent activity feed shows it as Z likes Dragonfly's post, instead of Z likes Kim's (the modified user name) post.


The post in question is:


Does this still happen after you rebuild the user caches?

This isn't a bug.

Search the resolved bugs forum and you will see this has been reported many times before.

That and it is resolved now - but not retroactively.
