My sentence comments are being attributed to "System"

Today, both sentence comments I’ve made so far have been attributed to a user called “System”. I’ve seen this happening on and off before, but this was twice too many. I think it mostly happens just to me, but that’s probably because I’m a frequent poster.

Ciao @morbrorper Hope it gets sorted soon!

There is at least one more person who was accidentally attributed to System in the Japanese sentence discussion today. I had thought it was also @morbrorper but morbrorper denied. Is that @mike-lima this time? It’s like a haunted house and System is like a zombie.
I often ping an OP’s name when I write back my answer to the OP. Hope the real System (admin) will fix the bug.

ETA: mike-lima denied on the Japanese SD. morbrorper assumed that they were wrongly attributed because they are regular contributors. But, probably not because mike-lime and I contributed to Japanese SDs more than others. And neither of us is not haunted by System (yet).


I should add that I have, on a number of occasions, flagged my own mis-attributed posts for moderation, asking for someone to look into the issue, but nothing has ever happened. Does the moderation system even work?

The bug hasn’t been fixed yet. Two more sentence discussions were attributed to the “System” again on Oct 14, 2022.

I guess the real OP of these two is @ericaw.


I have now had user “System” take over two of my new topics in a row :frowning:.

In my experience, other people are less likely to respond to these topics, which essentially kills the discussion from the beginning. It’s very frustrating.

@Mike, what can you do about this?


Thanks for the bump on this issue. If possible, could you please link the two topics here?

Looking at all the topics started by System is quite impressive:

I just posted a comment on the sentence “Can you drive stick?” at the English > Portuguese Fast Tracking Course and it went right to the section “Language Learning > Text or Multiple Choice”. :flushed:
