Diablo® III

Other peoples posts show up as Bashiok

Hey, just a heads up to mods. I was searching through Bashioks posts to see if there was any official stuff going on. Noticed this.

That wasn't posted by a mod, some kind of bug in the forum.

Could start all new conspiracy theories if the wrong thing is said in one of these bugged posts.

Wasn't there a Bashiok impersonator a while ago?

This If you go the thread that is in question and click the arrow on hname it shows his name as Bashiok.

What's really interesting is Bash commented on this back in October.

Search "Bashiok filter" and it's the first thing that comes up. Check the OP's char name--it shows up by BattleTag now, but those didn't exist back then.

I wonder why it didn't use the BattleTag in the recent post by the non-blue-Bash, too. (Edit: oops, it does, but in the search it shows the char name)

(<-- someone spends too much time stalking his favorite ComMod's posts...)

Don't be fooled. Bashiok has a cloning machine in his basement ;)

It's because there is a guy named bashiok, and when someone searches for threads under bashiok all bashioks will appear. I'm not sure if this is working as intended, but the CM's must at least have their own special filter. I've noticed this for quite some time now.

Yeah, this. The D3 Character name is "Bashiok" and when searching for the CM "Bashiok"'s posts, we are only looking for the author named "Bashiok". Once character identifiers are added to D3 characters, this will no longer be an issue, because "Bashiok" will be the CM and "Bashiok#XXX" will be the D3 character.

Yes. His name is Bashiok. Click on it. DFRESH is his BattleTag. His Character is named Bashiok, just as I said above.

And... /necro I guess, :/.
