I currently have a community website custom built in Perl using a MySQL database. I recently had a programmer make a change to my site that allows upgraded (paid) members to change their username. I have now begun to experience problems in some of the regular (free) member accounts where some of their usernames are not being saved to the database and are simply disappearing. My programmer is on holiday for 2 months but I need this fixed now.
The username seems to be saved initially on signup and is being sent to the member by email but after they update their profile, some of the usernames are being deleted and I do not know why.
If you are competent in Perl and have experience in dynamic community websites, please contact me ASAP. I have more work if you are interested.
