    Three times now I have found myself having someone else's resources listed as my own. I can see all their sales figures. The error disappears once I click on My Resources. Has anyone else seen this happen ?

    I hope not ! I was able to see all their sales figures before it switched back to my account. I think it has been different accounts that I have been shown. With it having happened three times now it is a bit concerning.

    Thanks for the report and my apologies for not seeing this earlier. We are looking into the root cause of this but you can rest assured that your account security is not compromised. The issue revolves around some sort of cacheing of the page, such that you, unfortunately, see somebody else's resources but are not actually able to act on them in anyway. And vice-versa of course. We are trying to look into potential causes and it would be immensely helpful if, when this happens to you, you can tell me (via conversation) what browser you were using, if you had additional TES tabs open and if you are using a shared computer when it happens.
