My account seems hacked or as if it were another user


Hello, guys! A little but strange issue: I've just tried to reply a comment on one of my tracks (one of my creations: 'I Remember') and suddenly, when I start to write the reply, instead of appearing my usual and official artistic name, I have appeared as '@user-...'
How is it possible?
What's happening? Am I hacked?
Maybe the system is thinking I'm a bot? I'M REAL HUMAN!!! Argh!
Please help! (at least an explanation)

Thanks in advance.

I think because we can constantly change our user names and urls, SoundCloud keeps the original User-xxxxxxxx number that was generated when we start our accounts on record as a default name. I expect it was just another glitch, a bit like recently when a lot of people's images weren't showing up for a few hours. Something was slowing down your user name showing so it showed the default user number.

Alternatively, if this is your comments page are you not mistaking the "Thanks" you sent to user-942584147 ?
