Is it just my PM box??  I was in there a few hours ago if even that & all the usernames were listed but now it still shows avitars but lists names as anonymous.....  Just curious if this is happening to others or if it's just me.  If it's a PBS change anyone know why?

Mine is the same. I am assuming it's a glitch. The names show up once I open the PM.

A Friday the 13th glitch?

Must be a glitch. If I try to pm any of you or go to my account page and try to pm a member from there, all the info for the member is listed.  The only place it seems to be anonymous is ifi go to my personal messages.

yeah I can see the names when I open the PM, just thought it was weird that everyone I've PM'd is anonymous.

looks like they are making some changes (like the background isn't blue anymore but a pale yellow color)

They're tinkering with the site today.  Someone posted about this glitch on CMT and the PBS team posted back that they've now fixed it.
