Description etu 2004-11-30 21:56:50 UTC
I have different account name in two wikipedias, one in
and another in

If I use ~~~~ in, the system fills my account name
in, not the account name in

The signature shows as the name whatever you put in the "nickname" 
field in preferences ("Nimimerkki (allekirjoituksia varten)"). If you've left 
the field blank, it shows your username. (The signature always links to 
your user page.)

There's basically no way that it can show the "wrong" name unless you're 
logged in as the wrong user. Check your nickname setting, and if you're 
sure it's still wrong please provide your usernames on both wikis so we 
can investigate further.
