I found this post in the Advanced Topics. If you look it says last edited by Kaj. I checked and it was not his signature, and I pressed quote and there was no BBCode. How?

Hmm, strange. I saw that post before, but didn't pay attention to the “Last edited by” part (if it was even there when I saw the post). I can confirm that there is no BBCode formatting which would cause the message to appear.

So basically, Kaj is back?????
Just kidding.

The only thing I can imagine is somehow they messed around with their credentials or something when editing their post.

I think it would be a lot harder to actually get into Kaj's account (which is deleted) and then edit another user's post.

I'm not really sure.

Essentially, though, I think they would have had to trick the Scratch server into thinking they were kaj while editing their post. Of course, that would be pretty difficult - there was a big topic in the AT's a while ago about doing something like that and nobody figured it out.

So, they basically told the server (with code) that they were kaj, then edited the post? Wouldn't that log you into kaj? (Probably not, I don't know how to do stuff like that.)

I actually don't know. I don't know a lot about web stuff.

The only other thing I could imagine is that the guy *is* actually Ben Berg (an ST member), and he used his admin powerz to write that.

But the account is a New Scratcher.

Dude341 said that he clicked “quote” and didn't see BBCode which would add that message, and I can confirm that fact.

If you see this signature while scrolling, you have been visited by ʎ++ haskal. Lazy evaluation, monads, function purity, lambdas, currying, partial application, algebraic data types, pattern matching, and typeclasses will come to you, but only if you comment, “Thanks, ʎ++ haskal” on my profile.

People are overreacting over Kaj. All he/she/they did was cause some minor trouble many years ago (there wasn't even any hacking) and people treat him/her/them as a terrible and irredeemable villain. IMO, how the some ATers use Kaj as a lab rat for their experiments and what the user in question here did is meaner than what Kaj actually did. If the rules were up to me, mentioning Kaj in a negative way would be considered “gossiping” like it would for any other Scratcher. I bet Kaj is much more mature now and isn't going to destroy Scratch if he/she/they came back.

TL;DR: Please stop using Kaj to show off your 1337 hax0r skillz.

I never mentioned Kaj hacked Scratch. Also, I did not do this.

I was talking to the person who did that trick to the post.
