I changed my password 2 days ago, and ever since then, my profile isn't called 'Start' anymore, but 'Syphon' for some reason. My name still shows up as Start everywhere, except when people reply to me in chat, then it shows up as 'Syphon'.

I have no idea what happened here. I have made no other changes than my password.

That's certainly weird.

Nothing to add, other than giving this a little bump and linking to your profile, where it's simultaneously Syphon and Start depending on where you look.

Sounds like they set up some sort of... Syphon filter.

i knew a guy named syphon who lied to a community for double-digit years about having a wife and child.

and then killed them off when he didn't want to bother anymore. we do not talk of him. it was the longest "WHY??" con i've ever heard of.

Sorry for the bump, but I'd really like to be Start again.

joining the fix start movement. also wondering if this weird problem has maybe effected others that just haven't reported it.

As a probably useless observation, syphon is relatively close to start alphabetically

@syphon: Sorry, I saw that your username was still Start and I thought someone had fixed this. Where are you seeing Syphon appearing?
