Not sure whewre this belongs, but...
When I first installed WordPress I registered to get an API key. I thought this also registered me for forums, possibly not. (Could someone clarify?) At any rate, in the process of updating to 2.6 I discovered that wordpress.org did not think I was registered. So I registered. (Again?) Now I can log in to make comments, BUT if I try to view my profile, I'm told that my login doesn't exist. Furthermore, some forum pages think I'm logged in (this one obviously) but if I go to the home forum page (http://wordpress.org/support/forum) it thinks I am NOT logged in.
This might or might not be related. After the 2.6 upgrade, I tried to activate WordPress stats. It responded that my blog was not associated with my API key but it definitely had been. I added it and to my surprise, my previous stats history was still there.
Can anyone shed any light on this? Am I okay now?
