    I have an issue where if I post in a forum my username is displayed as 'Deleted User' rather than my actual username. If I post a comment in a news article my username is displayed correctly.
    This is annoying and is confusing in forum threads. I have emailed Eurogamer but have had no reply. Can anyone help fix this?

    Go to usgamer.net. Login. Edit your profile. Put something else in as your username. See if this does anything.

    I think the forum has basically been cast adrift in the hope it devours itself. Moderators are rare as rockinhorse shit.

    So I wouldn't hold your breath. Maybe send craigy a DM, though I'd assume you've tried that.

    This happens all the time, used to be when people tried creating an account through facebook.

    You can change it here if you log in through Facebook. If you log in with a username you can't though, probably due to the zany antics that would ensue.

    Actually it doesn't look like you can do it for Facebook accounts any more. Antics fully thwarted.

    Thanks all for the suggestions.

    As far as I know my username is not pending. I created my account 4 years ago but have been a serial lurker until recently.

    I do not log in using facebook.

    I've sent a message to craigy to see if he can help.

    @watto Hello! Very strange, this. It looks like your account managed to get itself into an "unauthed" state. I've sorted it out now so you should be good to go.

    @craigy Brilliant! Thanks for sorting. You should give whoever monitors the Eurogamer email addresses a kick up the bum seeing as that was such a quick fix.
    Thanks again!

    If you want me to get involved in that thread and begin moderating it according to the forum rules you'll find yourself being banned for using abusive language. Are you sure you, Ecosse, RyanDS, Decks, etc want me in there swinging the banhammer?

    :D I think for everyone's sanity it should be nuked into orbit but if that isnt possible, maybe just let it run.

    If it means consistency and the beginning of a top-down led forum community instead of it being the redheaded stepchild of the site, sure, I'll take that bullet.

    😨
    Can't we just adapt the rules so that abusive language towards Tommy Robinson fanboy racist idiots are ok?

    How about getting rid of cultist then, his entire existence since creation yesterday has been to shit stir and troll. He hasn't got involved in anything apart from that.
