I'm not sure how this is possible, given how things work. Perhaps if you did some tampering on your side to cookies but you would still need to know the password for the similar user account.

Once you are on, you can see other users pages. If the user table was recreated and autonumbering assigned new keys, then possibly something could happen and get mixed up, but that would create login and major, major issues and everybody would be messed up.

Its possible that the software defaults to certain values, like male for gender. Is this possible?

Databases don't search on usernames, that is too slow, they search on keys, which are unique numbers in indexed fields and they search on the entire value, and at a low level and in different parts of the hardware (ie. memory usually).

And even if two usernames are the similar, even the same (which isn't allowed for other reasons) the unique keys for each of the user accounts is totally different. And the numeric id for users, being part of the primary key, has a unique index, and therefore duplicates are impossible. Referential integrity generally has to be enforced for certain functions of the database to work, it is quite slow without it.

So I don't understand what you are experiencing, is it just that the gender on your account said male? Or is it something that is happening when you type in a url?
Ok, there is some confusion about the username issue.

It had nothing to do with the migration.

I choose to add a plugin back on the site during this time. That plugin masks the address like - forums.powwows.com/showthread.php?id=123123

to forums.powwows.com/nameofthread

This is better for search engines.

This plugin also masks urls for user profiles.

I worked with the plugin folks this morning and made the necessary modifications to fix that issue.

The accounts were and always have been separate. The software just wasn't writing the url correctly.

Hope that helps.

Help please, whenever I post (except in this thread) something weird shows up in my post thingy.

Here is a screenshot. Look where it says "Already pinged" Some kind of healing arts thingy. WHAT is that? I went to the website for the center of healing arts stuff, and I'm not into that. I'm not sure where that come from.

Do you know? See screenshot:

Here I am on the NEVERENDING GAME in games and polls. Try to post there and see if you get it when you try to post in it.

Here is the URL I had:

Edited it out because it has my member number on it. Just go to Neverending game and see if you can post there without getting that message.

We gotta ask @Paul G, there is something up with that ping post. What is a ping anyway?

If you see this Paul G, if you go to Neverending Game in Games and Polls, try to post a test post and you will see that there is something called pinged on it. Can you remove that?

I think that is just a pingback. That helps with SEO - search engine optimization.

From Wiki:

A pingback is one of three types of linkback methods for Web authors to request notification when somebody links to one of their documents. This enables authors to keep track of who is linking to, or referring to their articles. Some weblog software, such as Movable Type, Serendipity, WordPress, and Telligent Community, support automatic pingbacks where all the links in a published article can be pinged when the article is published. A number of more advanced content management systems support pingbacks through the use of addons or extensions, including Drupal and Joomla.

Essentially, a pingback is an XML-RPC request (not to be confused with an ICMP ping) sent from Site A to Site B, when an author of the blog at Site A writes a post that links to Site B. However, it also requires a hyperlink. When Site B receives the notification signal, it automatically goes back to Site A checking for the existence of a live incoming link. If that link exists, the pingback is recorded successfully. This makes pingbacks less prone to spam than trackbacks. Pingback-enabled resources must either use an X-Pingback header or contain a element to the XML-RPC script.
