We have reported this issue to Area17(Website Techs), and they think it is a server issue. They are working with our server provider to get it fixed, and may need to put the site in maintenance mode for a few hours to do this. They have not given me an estimated time for when they plan to do this, but I expect an update very soon.

From what I have been told, the issue does not seem to affect profile privacy at all.

If you need additional help please let me know or contact answers@burdastyle.com.

Thank you all for your patience.

      I thought I had replied to you on the day you posted. Hmmm…. that’s weird!
      Anyway, as you probably already know we have our tech team working to correct the problem and I have passed along the your name and the information you have provided to see if that makes the cure easier.

      Thanks again kaitui-kiwi!

    Amber Bordelon is how my facebook sees me at BurdaStyle. Still not fixed. Don’t worry yourself- I’m just going to turn that feature off.

    I’m still having problems. I’ve tried changing the user namer back to my own but it still thinks I’m someone called Christopher Barrows. Then after I try to change it, I’m instantly transported to miss-g-1’s page. I hope the tech team can fix this bug.

    Hey there,

    I don’t know if I’m right here, but I’ve got some problems with my username after I wanted to change my real name from facebook into a fictional nickname. I thought it would work under “Personal Account Info” and with the line “Username”. I changed the exsisting name “burda-user…” into “Lepidoptera” and saved it. But it changed my name into “burda-user…” instead of my fictional username and I can’t change it back now (it always leads me to another user with that nickname). What do I do now? D:

    Thanks for reading and sorry for bad English skills, Lepi

      Hello happypuppy,

      We sincerely apologize for the frustration. On Friday we experienced a technical glitch on the site that was causing these false alerts. Our technical teach is continuing to investigate the error today and hope to have everything worked out soon.

      We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
