I just moused over your (blank) avatar and it says Peter C. From time to time a YA system bug pops up and affects many/most users by not showing their username or avatar, but it typically clears up in a few days.

Because you made you questions and/or answers anonymous youself.

I had the same problem. And I changed my password. But I was just reading posts on unrelated news article where someone posted about this issue, and I saw that many people were affected by this glitch.

The only way it can be Changed to Anonymous is if you Click on the Make Anonymous Button under the Blue Edit menu on Questions or Answers that you Post
Right now im not showing it being Anonymous I can see your Name

Okay, now everything is listed under my nickname. The only thing I did was log out of Yahoo and then log back in. Seemed to cure the problem. Not sure why it was changed to Anon. before. Maybe some kind of glitch with yahoo. I have never used the Blue edit button before, but just did to edit this post as I could not find the Comment button. Thanks to all. RGI

I never heard of that happening before here. It must be some type of temporary glitch. I wouldn't believe those scare tactics that your account is being checked and this is the time of year they do it. There is really nothing you can do about it. Verizon Media doesn't seem to want to correspond with us anyway.

A glitch or the Verizon Yahoo Abuse team may reviewing your account activity prior to suspending, blocking, your email account from participating on YA. This is the time of year Yahoo's server computers used to do that. Verizon hasn't changed all the the computer programs.
