I stumbled across a photo but the person who took it has the same name as me was it just a mix when it got uploaded or can people have the same name as you.

Well, you can go to the Members section and change your user ID. That way with any future uploads, you're new name will be the one that displays.

A person's ID can be whatever they want it to be, so it's possible to have the same user name. Last time I checked, 'Joe' was a pretty common name and 'M' was one of the more popular letters of the alphabet...

Hmm, I didnt think you could have the same exact user name, administration probably should fix this if that is the case.

It's not a username... For example, my username is "ottergoose," but my pictures say "Nicholas Benson." They have different usernames, but selected the same "display name." That's perfectly acceptable, as I'm sure that, out there somewhere, there are two people with the same first and last names taking pictures of trains.

Thinking of stuff like this is what I get for working as a web developer...

There are two John Day as well

from the UK

I am sure there is another photographer of the same name in the UK as well, who does not post to RP.
