Mod appearing twice
« on: May 12, 2010, 03:28:44 PM »
Recently, pandamonium appeared twice in the "Who's reading this forum" line in General Discussion. Is this a sneaky attempt to try and trick people into thinking there are more moderators than there actually are?

That's weird.  I've never seen that happen.  I thought it might be because she had two windows open to there, but I can't reproduce that.

We have a new user named "Atheist Panda". Are you sure that it was two pandamoniums and not one pandamonium and one Atheist Panda?

Well, I have a laptop and an ipod Touch. Sometimes I'll have my laptop idling in my room with tabs to this forum open and be active on my Touch while I grab a quick smoke outside.

:mysterysolved:

Oh, and sometimes I will have multiple tabs open on my laptop. But if Beleth can't reproduce it, I'm too lazy to try.

eta: scratch that ipod theory. i'm on both right now and only one of me is shown.

I'm fairly certain. It didn't break anything fragile, so I guess we're OK.
