Quote is now dropping the author's name

Hi folks -

As of at least today, when one Quotes a message, the quoted text is missing the Author name.

 

For example, I recently quoted HeavenOhio's message (#16) in this thread:

http://ficoforums.myfico.com/t5/Credit-Cards/New-CSR-before-or-after-new-mortgage/td-p/5146111

 

When it posted, the quote read "@ wrote ...", without identifying HeavenOhio as the author.  (I filled in the name manually when I saw that it was missing.)

 

One can see similar behavior earlier in the thread.

Thanks for the alert. We are aware of the issue and a support ticket has been submitted.  Until it’s fixed, a workaround as found by @UncleB is to remove the @ and it will retain the author’s name.

Not at all critical but, FWIW, the editor doesn't display the '@' (at least, not in Firefox) when I'm editing the message.

Hmm, just tried it in Firefox on my iPad and the @ symbol shows for me

They appear for me in Chrome so not sure what the issue would be with yours
